Workers’ Compensation Law Firm in Lake Havasu City

Workers’ compensation insurance is a type of no-fault insurance system that most employers in Arizona are required to carry. By virtue of the workers’ compensation system, a worker who is injured during the course of their work-related duties is eligible for certain benefits without having to prove fault and without being ineligible for benefits due to their own fault; in exchange for no-fault benefits, though, the employer is immune from liability. This means that the injured worker cannot bring a lawsuit directly against their employer for damages.

What are Workers’ Compensation Benefits in Arizona?

Workers who are injured on the job in Arizona are entitled to 100 percent coverage of their necessary and reasonable medical expenses. In addition to medical expenses, workers who are unable to return to work for a period of more than seven days can receive wage replacement benefits; however, benefits will not be paid for the first seven days unless the worker has to miss more than 13 calendar days of work. Wage replacement benefits are paid at a rate of 66 ⅔ percent of the injured worker’s gross monthly salary.


How to Report a Claim as an Injured Worker

Understanding the process for reporting a claim as an injured worker is absolutely essential. If you don’t follow the proper steps for reporting your claim, your claim could be denied. As soon as you are able, you need to report the injury to your employer. If you fail to provide notice of your injury to your employer, your claim could be denied. You should also inform the doctor who treats you for your injuries that the injury happened on the job.

What to do if Your Claim for Injury Compensation is Denied

If your claim is denied, you have a right to file an appeal. However, your appeal must be brought within 90 days of receiving notice of claim denial.

How a Workers’ Compensation Attorney Can Help

A workers’ compensation attorney can advocate for you and protect your interests throughout the process. Our lawyers understand what you are going through and how terrifying it is to not have income as a result of a workplace injury. From the beginning, we can work with your workers’ compensation insurer, negotiate your settlement, and fight for you. If your claim is denied, we will represent you throughout the appeals process.

Lake Havasu City Social Security Disability Lawyers

If you are disabled and prevented from Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA) as a result of that disability, you may be eligible for Social Security disability insurance. There are two programs maintained by the Social Security Administration (SSA):

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)

Social Security Disability Insurance, or SSDI, is the program that most people are familiar with. Those who are eligible for SSDI benefits are those who are “insured” by virtue of having contributed to Social Security during their working years, are disabled, and have earned enough work credits.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

Supplemental Security Income, or SSI, on the other hand, is for those who are disabled, blind, aged, and who are of limited income and resources. A person does not need to have earned work credits or have paid into Social Security in order to qualify for this program.

Social Security disability claims are often complex, and it’s important to recognize that the SSA denies thousands of claims each year. When you work with our law firm, we will be able to help you prepare your application correctly—we know what the SSA is looking for. In addition to providing assistance during the initial application process, we can also represent you throughout the appeals process if your claim is denied.

Click to Apply to the Snow Carpio Weekley, PLC Conrad Carpio Education Scholarship

  • SCW_logo_grad_web

    The SCW Conrad Carpio Education Scholarship was named in honor of Conrad Carpio, the father of Firm Partner Alex Carpio. Conrad was born in Cananea, Sonora Mexico. He came to the United States in 1970 and became a Legal Permanent Resident in 1986 through Amnesty. He is the father of 5 children. Conrad has been a roofer with Ralph Hays Rooming since 1975. After 44 years of roofing he retired, but after three months of retirement he decided retirement was not for him and he is still working with Ralph Hays Roofing to this day. Like many of the firm’s injured worker clients, Conrad is an immigrant who came to the United States for a better life. He worked hard to provide a better future for his family. Conrad also suffered work injuries as a roofer and each time he recovered and his employer accommodated him as his work ethic is like no other. Snow, Carpio & Weekley, PLC decided to name their annual scholarship, “The Conrad Carpio Education Scholarship,” in honor of Conrad. Conrad, like many of the firm’s clients are hardworking individuals who exemplify the American Dream and the injured workers the firm has represented for decades.
