Resources for Injured Workers in Yuma, AZ
In Yuma 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.
