Employers and their insurance companies have been known to deny, unjustly delay, and reduce workers’ compensation claims. A skilled Phoenix workers’ comp lawyer can protect you if you are facing opposition or difficulty when attempting to obtain the fair amount of workers’ compensation that you need to cover the cost of your losses and recovery.
Additionally, a workplace accident attorney can help you determine if a third party can be held responsible. Proving a third-party claim can be complex as you must demonstrate the party’s negligence. Your workers’ compensation attorney can work with you to gather the necessary evidence to prove their liability.
There is no limit to the type of injury that can occur at a place of work, but certain types of injuries and accidents are more common than others. Some of the workplace injuries our Phoenix personal injury lawyers have experience handling include:
After being hurt on the job, you are typically entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, regardless of fault. These benefits can cover:
Both full-time and part-time workers have the right to workers’ compensation benefits in Arizona. You are responsible for filing the claim, and it must be done within one year of the injury. However, you should notify your employer as soon as you can. That will make filling out the documents you need for the claim much easier.
You also may be able to file a third-party claim against another party unrelated to your employer, whose negligence (failure to take proper care) contributed to your workplace injury. For example, claims are often filed against manufacturers of defective tools, subcontractors or general contractors, property owners, and at-fault drivers who crash into company vehicles.
