Bob Wisniewski wins in Arizona’s Court of Appeals, yet again. In a hotly contested case, Wisniewski secured a favorable award for his client for loss of earning capacity benefits. The insurance company appealed, arguing that the treating psychiatrist didn’t have a "foundation" to offer an opinion on work restrictions. The Court of Appeals disagreed and ruled in favor of the injured worker.
Any injury suffered while at work should be reported. You should never feel like you must wait to see if the seriousness of the injury changes or feel like it shouldn’t be reported because the injury was your fault. The Arizona Workers' Compensation Act requires that workers "forthwith report" an injury that occurs at work to their employer. Report the injury to your boss or supervisor, and make sure the report is immediately completed. Don’t "wait until Monday" to file your report.
Arizona's workers’ compensation law is a "no fault" system. This means that it doesn’t matter if you were to blame for the accident or if you placed yourself in a harmful situation while at work. Regardless of fault, you may still have a compensable workers' compensation claim and your injury should be reported. If you don’t immediately report your injury, it could increase the likelihood of your employer's insurance company denying liability for your injuries.
Injured workers are entitled to workers’ compensation as long as they were hurt on the job. We handle work injury claims throughout Arizona. Talk to our Phoenix injury lawyers.
Arizona’s workers’ compensation statute of limitations requires an injured worker to report his or her work-related injury within 1 year from the date of injury.
If the worker doesn’t file a claim before the 1 year deadline, he or she may forfeit their right to receive compensation.
