Yuma Workers’ Compensation Attorneys
Arizona law requires employers to have workers’ compensation insurance that covers the medical expenses of injured employees on the job. The workers’ compensation insurance also helps injured workers with rehabilitation as well as recovery of lost wages. Working with experienced Yuma workers’ compensation attorneys helps you to avoid any failures in the fulfillment of your workers’ compensation claim.
Workers’ Compensation Injuries
Some of the injuries that we encounter under the workers’ compensation insurance include:
Our experienced Yuma workers’ compensation attorneys can analyze your injuries and develop strong evidence to support your compensation claim.
How Workers’ Compensation Settlements Work
Hiring our skilled lawyers enables you to understand the negotiation and calculation of your workers’ compensation settlement. Instead of accepting an offer from the insurance company on your claim, you can pursue a more favorable settlement. Which is very achievable with the help of our Yuma workers’ compensation lawyers.
If you decide to pursue a greater workers’ compensation settlement, there will be negotiations between you and the insurance company. Alternatively, your legal representation could stand in for you and offer substantial help. The settlement should critically take into account issues such as:
Once the calculation has been finalized, the negotiations can be carried out effectively. Though the insurance company may be unwilling to give in to your request, the settlement amount will satisfy both parties. The workers’ compensation settlement can either be a structured payment plan or a lump sum. If the parties fail to settle or aren’t willing to have negotiations, you may choose to go to trial. Which will necessitate the filing of a workers’ compensation lawsuit.
Workers’ Compensation Lawsuit
In the case of a workers’ compensation lawsuit trial, the judge evaluates the case and determines a fair settlement. There is however a risk in filing a lawsuit. The judge may award a settlement that is even less than what the insurance company initially offered. While this may be unlikely, it’s the risk that an injured worker has to face in pursuing a workers’ compensation lawsuit.
Workers’ Compensation Benefits
Injured workers are entitled to receive payments for disabilities and lost wages along with medical coverage under workers’ compensation insurance. There are temporary and permanent benefits in a workers’ compensation settlement:
Lost time benefits which are received as compensation for lost wages make up the temporary benefits. Such benefits are only last when you are actively under treatment.
Permanent disabilities are often compensated with permanent benefits. Medical proof is required to ascertain that there is very minimal chance for your condition to improve any further.
