Benefits Available After a Workplace Injury

Benefits Available After a Workplace Injury

Workers in Arizona who are hurt on the job may be entitled to various types of compensation. For instance, an injured person can expect that any medical bills incurred because of a workplace accident will be paid by on his or her behalf. In some cases, that person may be paid for any miles driven to and from a hospital or other medical provider. Generally, injured employees can submit requests to be treated by their personal physicians.

A person who is disabled because of a workplace injury may receive temporary or permanent disability payments. Temporary disability payments are made every two weeks and equal about two-thirds of a worker’s weekly wages. Permanent disability awards are determined based on a worker’s age, occupation and earnings. In some cases, those who return to work will continue to receive wage loss payments if their wages are lower than they were prior to the injury.

If a person is moved to a lower paying position after returning to work, he or she may receive vocational training. In most cases, individuals will be compensated for any time that they spend taking part in a training program. Employees who are currently receiving unemployment or wage loss benefits are encouraged to notify their employer or their attorney if their work status changes.

Generally speaking, individuals may be allowed to obtain workers’ compensation benefits even if they played a role in causing the accident that led to their injuries. A person who is seeking financial benefits after being hurt at work may want to do so with the help of an attorney. An Arizona workers’ compensation attorney may be able to ensure that a claim is filled out properly and in a timely manner. This may maximize the odds that a worker’s request for benefits is approved.
