Workers' Compensation Overview

Serving Clients in Maricopa County, Coconino County, Pima County, Pinal County and Yavapai County

At Jerome, Gibson, Stewart, Stevenson, Engle & Runbeck, P.C., in Phoenix, we talk to people every day who want to know what steps to take after being injured on the job. Workers in Arizona are aware of the workers' compensation system, but unfortunately, people often think their employer will handle the details and the system will automatically kick in. Too many injured workers assume that they don't need a lawyer to help them get the benefits they are counting on for medical treatment and earnings while they are recovering from their injuries.

It is a distinction that is earned by only a select few lawyers who can demonstrate experience and a unique level of knowledge in the area of workers' compensation claims.

If you or a loved one has suffered an injury on the job, here are some basic steps to follow:

  • Report your injury promptly to your supervisor: Your employer is required by state law to report all workplace accidents that result in an injury and lost time at work. Make sure you get the names of witnesses and correct facts for the report.
  • Obtain medical treatment: Even if your injuries do not seem immediately serious, you will be required to seek medical attention in order to collect workers' compensation benefits, in the event you need medical treatment or lose wages or earnings following your accident. You are usually entitled to seek initial treatment from the doctor of your choice. You may be directed to a pre-authorized doctor for continued treatment and care.
