Workplace injuries can result in expensive medical bills and lost wages. In some cases, vocational rehabilitation may be needed to acquire new work skills. Under Arizona law, workers who are injured while performing their work duties are entitled to certain financial benefits, regardless of the cause of the accident and injuries.
In general, workers’ compensation benefits may cover:
- Compensation for your lost wages.
- Medical care. This can include ongoing care, surgeries, and physical therapy.
- Disability benefits. These benefits will depend on whether your injury is temporary or permanent.
- Death benefits. This can include funeral expenses and is provided to family survivors of a worker who has been killed in an on-the-job accident.
Workers’ compensation benefits can apply to workers who sustain repetitive injures as well work-related illnesses.
Depending on your situation, you may receive weekly or monthly benefits during your disability. In the case of permanent disability, you may receive a lump-sum payment. Benefit amounts are generally based on how injuries are classified. Doctors rate level of impairment which determines the types of benefits you may receive.
The Arizona workers’ compensation system is complex, especially for those who are unfamiliar with the rules and regulations associated with obtaining unpaid wages and other benefits. We understand that you and your family rely upon workers’ compensation to help you through difficult times which is why we work tirelessly to maximize our clients’ awards as quickly as possible.
