Our law firm’s COVID-19 response plan

MFLG is continuing to operate without missing a beat; a good portion of our staff is now working offsite due to COVID.

However, we continue to be here for all of Arizona’s injured and disabled workers.

We Are The Rock for Injured And Disabled Workers

WHAT IS THE “BUNKHOUSE RULE”?

| Dec 13, 2015 | Firm News

The “bunkhouse rule” says that an employee who is required to live on the employer’s premises and who suffers an injury while using those premises in a reasonable manner has an accepted workers’ compensation claim even if he or she were technically off duty at the time.

Please keep in mind that this rule does not apply if the employee voluntarily lives on the premises just to be closer to work.

Please keep in mind that if the employee is engaging in activity that is unrelated to any use or condition of the premises, the claim will be denied.

The scenario that typically applies in Arizona is when a maintenance person is required to live on the premises of an apartment complex or RV facility.

If you have questions about your workers’ compensation case, or a family or a friend’s, please feel free to call us for a free consultation. We also handle Social Security disability cases.

The Fendon Law Firm is the largest family owned and operated workers’ compensation and Social Security law firm in the State of Arizona. We have offices in Phoenix, Tucson, Flagstaff, and Prescott.
