What You Should Know About Independent Medical Exams

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a work-related accident, you are probably wondering how to find a workers' compensation lawyer in Phoenix who you can trust to fight for your rights and help you receive the benefits to which you may be rightfully owed. Our lawyers have more than 50 years of experience defending the rights of employees in all different types of workers' compensation cases. Our lead lawyer has received an AV Preeminent® Rating from Martindale-Hubbell®, a 10.0 Superb Rating on Avvo, and is one of the state's first board-certified workers' compensation law specialists. We understand the impact a work-related injury can have on a person's life and we are committed to doing everything we can to help each of our clients attain a positive outcome for their particular case.

Can My Employer Terminate Me Without Cause?

One of the most frustrating situations a person can find him or herself in is having been terminated without cause. This type of termination does not follow a series of disciplinary actions, it simply seems to happen out of the blue. People who are terminated in this fashion are often left feeling stressed about an uncertain future or worried about having no immediate source of income. Providing that your employer did terminate you without cause, and not as a result of discrimination or retaliation for something you did or said, it is highly unlikely that you will have any recourse available to you. On the other hand, if you feel you were wrongly terminated, an employment law attorney from our Phoenix firm is ready to help you aggressively defend your rights and see that justice is served.

Could Workers' Comp Affect My Social Security Benefits?

Any individual who has sustained a temporary or permanent disability as a result of a workplace accident may have the right to pursue workers' compensation benefits in addition to Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. If you are looking to seek maximum benefits, we strongly advise you obtain legal counsel first so that you gain a full understanding of how workers' comp could affect your Social Security benefits. Filing these types of claims on your own could mean you will be ineligible to receive the full benefits available to you. Hiring a Phoenix workers' compensation attorney, who also has years of experience representing clients in Social Security Disability cases, will give you a much better chance to maximum your claim and minimize how much your payments may be reduced.
