Arizona court awards interest following workplace accident

One often overlooked issue in workers' compensation cases is the amount of interest that an insurance company should pay on benefits awarded following a serious workplace accident. In this respect, the Arizona Supreme Court recently held that an insurance company is on the hook for interest from the moment that an insurance company knows about the workplace accident and the subsequent workers' compensation claim.

Helping Arizona workers get the correct amount of lost wages

Last week's post on this blog discussed the maximum amount of benefits for lost wages an employee in Arizona can receive for a work-related injury. Perhaps even more importantly, the post also mentioned that sometimes, employers and employees can get in to a dispute about how much an employee was earning in wages prior to his or her injuries.

Is there a maximum amount I can receive for lost wages?

Arizonans who get injured while on the job are, generally speaking, entitled to two benefits under the state's workers' compensation laws. First, they are entitled to have their medical bills compensated in full. Second, they are entitled to receive compensation for lost income if they wind up missing work for more than seven days because of an on-the-job injury.
