Injured at work? You may be entitled to benefits and settlements under Arizona workers’ compensation law.
There are many myths and misconceptions about workers’ compensation laws in Arizona. For instance, just because a workplace accident or injury may have been at least partially your fault doesn’t mean your benefits will be denied. You are entitled to workers’ compensation as long as you were injured on the job. Workers’ compensation pays benefits regardless of fault.
If you have been told by an employer or insurance company that you aren’t entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, do NOT give up hope. Instead, discuss your case with our experienced attorneys to find out how we can help you.
