Timely, dedicated representation to injured workers in Arizona for 45 years
As the state capital and largest city in Arizona — not to mention the 5th most populous city in the United States — Phoenix is home to many people. In fact, nearly 2 million residents live, work and play in the Valley of the Sun. If you’re looking for a Phoenix workers’ compensation attorney and Certified Specialist with extensive experience in workplace injuries and workers’ compensation legal matters, then look no further than the Law Offices of Robert E. Wisniewski. We’ve represented hardworking Arizonans for 45 years — including first responders, police, firefighters, NFL players, construction workers and laborers.
Whether you work in an office downtown, or as a first responder, or in one of the “Five C’s” that have historically supported Phoenix’s local economy (cotton, cattle, citrus, climate, and copper), you are likely entitled to workers’ compensation benefits in the event of a workplace injury or illness. Because the workers’ compensation system in Arizona is complex, injured workers in Phoenix must often seek expert legal counsel from a knowledgeable local work injury attorney.
We offer experienced legal consultations and services in workers’ compensation cases throughout the Phoenix metro area and across Maricopa County, including:
- El Mirage

Unlike other law firms, workers’ compensation is all we do – all day, every day – and we do it well.

Resources for injured workers in Phoenix, AZ
In Maricopa County and throughout the state of Arizona, the workers’ compensation system requires employers to offer insurance benefits to their employees who suffer a job-related injury or illness.
Workers’ comp is a no-fault system, meaning the employer is 100% liable for job-related injuries or illnesses experienced by their employees — no matter who’s responsible for the workplace accident.
As a result, employees typically aren’t allowed to sue their employers to receive insurance benefits.
If you or a loved one were hurt on the job in Phoenix, you might find the following local resources helpful:
