What Compensation can I get under Arizona Workers' Compensation Laws

Apr 19, 2017
If you or a loved one has been injured on the job, it is important for you to be aware of all the benefits you are entitled to, in order to receive them.
Here are the types of compensation Arizona compensation laws allow you, depending on your specific case.
Medical Care
Arizona workers' compensation laws state that you should get compensated for any expenses regarding the treatment of your injury or illness, caused due to your job or at the workplace.
Permanent Lost Wages
If your injury is determined as permanent, you can claim compensation for permanent lost wages. To ensure you do not lose out these benefits, you need to ensure that your injury is properly assessed and documented.
Lost Earning Capacity
If your injury or illness prevents you from doing the same job as before and you have to choose a lesser paid job, you can claim for loss of earning capacity. Leading Arizona workers compensation lawyers, such as Arizona Injury Law Group, can help you so that you are compensated if you can't earn as much as did you before.
Survivor' Benefits
If you lost your spouse in a fatal workplace accident, you need not worry about paying the bills, you can claim survivor benefits. The law provides that in some circumstances, even if the cause of the death is uncertain, the workers' compensation insurance will still have to pay you benefits.
More about Workers' Comp Benefits
The workers' comp laws have a "schedule" or a list that indicates the financial costs for which the worker will be compensated. An injury which is not on that list is considered "unscheduled". In such cases, the necessary compensation is negotiated.
There is no compensation for "pain and suffering" unlike a personal injury lawsuit. The Arizona Workers' Compensation Act does not provide compensation for pain and suffering except when it affects your earnings after the injury.
Workers' compensation law is complex. You may receive notices and may have to submit documents, all of which can often be hard to understand. Many claims are denied due to lack of understanding of the law, incompletion of documents or papers not being submitted on time.
If you or a loved one has fallen victim to an injury at work, you need an experienced workers compensation lawyer in Phoenix AZ on your side.
