Timely, dedicated representation to injured workers in Yuma for over 40 years
Whether you’re a retiree who lives in Yuma part-time or you’re a year-round resident, you understand that living in the sunniest place in the world has its pros and cons. While the year-long dry and hot climate attracts many people, the region suffers from one of the highest unemployment rates in the United States — in large percentage due to the fact that much of the workforce is seasonally employed in agriculture.
For those who do live in Yuma and are fortunate to be employed, there are higher risks and dangers associated with many local jobs compared to elsewhere in the country. Frequently, injured workers must seek advice from a knowledgeable local work injury attorney if they’re seriously hurt on the job. At the Law Offices of Robert E. Wisniewski (Yuma branch), we’ve represented the hardworking citizens of Yuma for over 40 years — including first responders, police, firefighters, NFL players, construction workers and laborers.

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.
