How Does Workers' Compensation Work In Arizona?

Arizona is a no-fault state, which means regardless of the cause of your workplace injury, you are entitled to workers' compensation benefits. These benefits include reimbursement for lost wages and coverage of the medical treatment you need to recover. However, the process of filing a workers' compensation claim is often complex. To ensure you receive your full benefits, it is essential to consult with an experienced workers' compensation attorney.

What You Should Do

If you are injured at work, you need to protect your rights. That is why it is important to follow the workers' compensation procedure. After a workplace injury, contact our offices. We guide you through every step of the process, including:

  • Reporting your injury to your employer as soon as possible. Employers are required to have workers' compensation insurance for their employees, and they must have a record of the injury to report to their insurance company and the Industrial Commission of Arizona (ICA).
  • Filing your claim with the ICA. The ICA handles all workers' compensation claims in the state, and they will determine what benefits you qualify for. It is important to note that you must file your claim within one year of the injury to receive full benefits.
  • Obtaining the necessary medical treatment. Every injury is different and will require treatment from surgery to therapy. Consult a medical professional to take care of yourself as soon as possible.

Even though Arizona's laws entitle you to receive benefits, some employers and their insurance companies may try to deny your claim. At Rios Law Firm PLLC, we will protect your rights throughout the entire benefits process. We will make sure you understand all of the options available to you, and help you make the decision that best fits your needs.
