Illegal Closure Of An Arizona Workers’ Comp Case

Published April 21, 2015 by Matt Fendon Law Group | Firm News

In Phoenix, insurance adjusters will frequently try to terminate an injured worker’s benefits retroactive more than 30 days. This is illegal in Arizona as it is a violation of Industrial Commission of Arizona rules.

An Arizona workers’ compensation insurance carrier can only close a case 30 days retroactively. If they attempt this measure against you, the injured worker, you should immediately seek the services of one of the well experienced attorneys at Fendon Law Firm.

I recently received a decision back from an administrative law judge in the favor of the Arizona injured worker. The insurance company attempted to take a seven month credit against our clients’ temporary disability benefits in violation of Arizona rules. The judge correctly decided that the closure was unlawful and the insurance carrier could only go back 30 days.

Please feel free to contact our office whether you live in Phoenix, Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, Glendale, Avondale, Buckeye, Apache Junction, Flagstaff, Prescott, Tucson or any other city in Arizona, and we would be glad to provide you with one free consultation in relation to an issue like this or any other Arizona workers’ compensation, and Social Security disability issues.
