Are You Confused About Filing a Workers’ Compensation Claim in Arizona?
You should never be reluctant to report an injury that you suffered while on the job. In fact, Arizona’s Workers’ Compensation Law requires that workers who sustain an on-the-job injury “forthwith report” their injury to their employer. “Forthwith” means that as soon as you realize you have an injury that may be related to your work, you must report it to a supervisor or manager immediately.
Arizona’s “no-fault” system means that it does not matter how or why you were seriously injured. No one can be blamed for your accident. Even if you placed yourself in harm’s way during a workday and were hurt because of it, this aspect of your case is irrelevant under state law.
Still, you should report your work injury to your employer as soon as possible. Failure to “forthwith report” an on-the-job injury can result in the insurance company denying liability for your injuries.
Then you should contact the attorneys who can support your work injury benefits claim — the experienced attorneys at the law offices of Snow, Carpio & Weekley, PLC, in Phoenix.
Chad Snow, X. Alexander Carpio, and Erica Gonzalez-Melendez have worked in the field of protecting Arizona’s injured workers since 1992, and since 2000 as attorneys. They know your rights and work long and hard to protect them.
