Workers Compensation in Phoenix, AZ

Published June 17, 2018 by Matt Fendon Law Group | Firm News

My employer said they would take care of me.

Unfortunately, this is not accurate. When you are injured on the job in the state of Arizona, you need to promptly do the following three things: file an injury report with your employer, file an injury report with the Industrial Commission of Arizona, and go see a doctor immediately.

Do not under any circumstances allow your employer to convince you to tell anyone – whether it be a doctor, hospital or anyone for that matter – that your injury occurred somewhere else besides work.

Arizona employers do this all the time where they attempt to take advantage of injured workers by telling them to report their injury as something other than work related, and in response, the employer will take care of their medical benefits and salary.

This essentially destroys The injured worker’s chances at a compensable Arizona workers’ compensation claim. If medical records or any other type of documentation shows that the injured worker said it wasn’t work related, this will jeopardize their claim. The whole reason why the employer tells injured workers to do this is to avoid their Worker’s Compensation premium from increasing. Nine times out of 10 the employers then “throw them under the bus” and stop paying for their medical benefits and salary. In addition, if the injured worker has any future problems whether medically or the need for compensation, they’re out of luck.

The whole point of having workers’ compensation insurance is to protect employees from hazards on the job. Having Worker’s Compensation insurance is a business expense and mandated by Arizona law.
