Arizona Workers' Compensation
Workers in dangerous occupational fields have the undeniable risk of getting injured, but those who work in safer environments also run the risk of suffering an on-the-job injury. Fortunately, workers’ compensation laws were enacted to protect injured workers and provide financial relief while they recover.
If you’ve been injured while performing your job and the insurance company unjustly denies your workers’ compensation claim, contact our Arizona attorneys today. We understand how frustrating your situation can be and want to assist you in securing your full and fair compensation.

What Can a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer Do?
If you’ve suffered an injury while performing your job, you deserve to be compensated fairly for your hardship. Our workers’ compensation lawyers can investigate your case, negotiate with the insurance company, and fight tirelessly for the compensation you’re entitled to.
Here are a few situations that qualify for workers’ compensation:
- Head injuries (concussions, traumatic brain injuries)
- Other physical injuries (broken bones, herniated discs, torn muscles/ligaments)
- Occupational conditions (mesothelioma, hearing/sight loss, radiation sickness)
Who Can File a Workers’ Compensation Claim?
The Industrial Commission of Arizona allows injured workers to recover the following:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Permanent/partial disability benefits (depending on the severity of the injury)
- Job retraining services
Your claim could be truthful but your employer could be interfering with the process. This shady business tactic isn’t just unethical, it’s illegal.
If you or a loved one are in a situation like this, contact our Arizona attorneys for assistance.
How Do You Appeal a Workers’ Compensation Denial?
A denied claim doesn’t mean you’re ineligible for benefits; you still have the option to appeal the decision. In many cases, insurance companies and immoral employers will act out of financial selfishness and actively attempt to prevent the employee from being compensated. They’ll claim that the injury didn’t occur on the job, stems from a previous condition, or that it never happened at all.
Your best option is to appeal the verdict. Arizona law allows individuals to file an appeal within 90 days of receiving the initial denial, but it’s important to act sooner rather than later. Time is of the essence, so don’t wait to contact our Arizona attorneys.
