Types of Workplace Accidents

Phoenix Work Injury Attorneys: Were You Hurt On the Job?

In Arizona, all employers are responsible for carrying workers' compensation insurance to help their employees who sustain work-related injuries or illnesses. Workers' compensation helps people who are injured or ill recover lost wages and medical expenses after any of a number of types of workplace accidents. Many types of workplace accidents can count toward workers' compensation benefits. Some jobs are more risky than others, such as construction occupations, and have a higher chance of injury for the worker. Even though workers' compensation benefits do not vary for each accident, securing a Phoenix workers' comp lawyer who understands your situation can prove to be an advantage as you seek compensation.

At Fendon Law Firm, P.C., we can help you find solace as you recover from the injuries associated with the workplace accident. Injuries can occur in all types of accidents. Industrial accidents, such as slip and falls, falling objects, and chemical burns, are especially dangerous to people working in industrial or other types of environments. Other common accidents commonly affect airport employees, healthcare workers, and people working in the service industry. We can work with commercial drivers involved in a vehicle accident; municipal employees who have suffered burns or wounds; and factory workers who face machinery accidents. Any accident that is the result of a workplace circumstance will likely be covered under workers' compensation.

Accidents connected to an employment condition or activity can be covered, even if the injured is partially responsible for the situation. Our firm can also help the victim's loved ones recover compensation for fatal accidents. Accidents do not have to occur at the worksite to be considered eligible for benefits. Under Arizona law, you may be eligible for benefits if the situation occurred as the result of a job-related duty. When an individual in a workplace accident is killed, the family members may be entitled to death benefits through workers' compensation. If you are unsure whether your situation qualifies for workers' compensation benefits, contact us today! Our offices are in Flagstaff, Phoenix, and Prescott, and we are prepared to assist you anywhere in Arizona.
