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.
