Can you sue your employer if you get injured on the job?

If you have been hurt while you were at work in Arizona, you may be facing a whirlwind of emotions as you work through recovery and the formalities of having been injured on the job. In situations where you and your employer disagree on what happened and whether or not you are eligible for compensation, you may find yourself bothered with their lack of sympathy. 

In response to the lack of support you have been shown, you may be wondering how likely it is that you can sue your employer for the compensation you feel you deserve. According to Integrity Insurance, if you are approved for workers' compensation benefits, you are no longer eligible to sue your employer. The reason being, the benefits you are being given will function as a trade-off between both parties that protects you from having to pay for your recovery alone, and protects your employer from facing excessive repercussions related to your injury. 

Once you have submitted a claim to your employer for workers' compensation assistance, if you are approved, the resources you receive will aid in covering the costs associated with your medical treatment, recovery from your injury and any lost wages during the time you were disabled. The amount of financial assistance you receive will vary depending on the severity of your injury, the circumstances surrounding it and the length of your treatment and recovery.
