Public Employees Are Eligible For Workers' Compensation

Like employees of private companies, public employees who are injured on the job are entitled to benefits under Arizona's workers' compensation laws. Whether you are a teacher, office worker, firefighter or another kind of state or local employee, you are entitled to coverage for medical expenses and payments to replace lost income for temporary or lasting disabilities from your injuries.

If you have been hurt on the job, the experienced attorneys at Jerome, Gibson, Stewart, Stevenson, Engle & Runbeck, P.C., will provide you with experienced guidance through the workers' compensation process.

Experienced Attorneys For Workers' Compensation Claims

Founded more than 40 years ago, our law firm provides experienced workers' comp representation for all types of public employees. We do not charge attorney's fees unless you receive benefits. We assist all types of public employees, including:

  • Office workers
  • Teachers
  • Police, firefighters and other public safety employees
  • Maintenance workers, including street maintenance and park employees
  • Other employees of state and local government

Because the job duties of public employees vary widely, so do the injuries they receive. Our lawyers have successfully helped office workers obtain compensation for carpal tunnel syndrome and other repetitive injuries. We have also helped employees obtain workers' compensation benefits for back injuries, falls from heights, head trauma and many other types of injuries.

Regardless of the type of injury you receive, you should report the incident to your supervisor immediately, making clear that you have been injured. You should also seek medical attention and tell your care provider that you have been injured in a work accident. A workers' compensation attorney can advise you of the specific benefits to which you are entitled and guide you through the process.
