Arizona Workers' Compensation Attorneys Work to Ensure Injured Workers Get the Money They Deserve
When an employee is injured on the job, it's natural for that employee to assume that workers' comp will cover his or her expenses. Arizona workers' compensation attorneys know that obtaining the benefits you deserve is not always that easy, nor is it a straightforward process. Filing for benefits is actually quite complicated, and if not done right can result in delayed payment or even denial of benefits.
This is why it is to your advantage to consult with a skilled Arizona workers' compensation lawyer as soon as you are injured, so that your chances of obtaining the full compensation you deserve are optimal.
You have bills to pay, and likely a family to take care of financially. No one ever expects to be injured in the workplace, but it happens. If you have never had experience with workers' comp in the past, you may not know what to do first, or what will happen. These are questions you should ask a qualified Arizona workers' compensation attorney, who can guide you throughout the process, answer your questions and determine whether you may have grounds for a third party liability lawsuit.
In some situations, you may be eligible for more than workers' comp benefits. For example, if you were injured on the job due to malfunctioning equipment or a piece of defective machinery, that manufacturer/distributor of that equipment may be liable for some of the damages. An Arizona workers' compensation lawyer can help identify all parties who may be held accountable, so that you can get the full compensation you deserve for medical expenses, lost wages, even pain and suffering.
Perhaps you have already filed a claim but were denied benefits, or your benefits abruptly stopped even though your doctor had not released you to return to work. Qualified workers' compensation attorneys in Arizona have in-depth knowledge and understanding of workers' comp laws, and will fight your legal battles for you, so that you are not cheated out of what is rightfully yours.
Arizona workers' compensation lawyers also work to make sure your voice is heard if you become involved in a dispute regarding your benefits. If your claim has been denied, your attorney will investigate to determine why, and work to get you the benefits you deserve. Most employees know what worker's compensation is, but never have to use it. When you do, you quickly find out that all is not cut and dried, and the process is simply not as easy as you hoped it would be.
Whether you need help filing an initial claim, have been denied benefits or believe you may be eligible for additional compensation from a third party, discuss your concerns with a reputable Arizona workers' compensation lawyer right away. Without skilled legal guidance, you may be missing out on benefits that are rightfully yours.
