Last week's post discussed a tragic incident in which a wall collapsed, killing one Arizona worker and seriously injuring another. These sorts of incidents are unfortunately common at construction sites, and employers need to take extra precautions to prevent them.
An Arizona construction worker died and another one suffered very serious injuries after a wall collapsed on them while they were working on a demolition project.
Last week's post on this blog discussed how MRI scans are being used frequently when Arizona employees complain of pain in their lower backs. While these sorts of scans can be a good thing for injured workers in Maricopa County, the reality is that these scans, like other medical evidence, can be interpreted in any number of ways.
When Arizona residents suffer an on-the-job injury, they want to know that they will receive the appropriate level of medical care so that they can return to work as soon as possible. Most of our readers know that workers' compensation will help the injured worker financially until they can return to work, but some people may not know that medical care is an important part of the employer's obligation after a workplace accident.
Many Phoenix area workers who suffer workplace injuries will likely find themselves dealing with the Industrial Commission of Arizona. One part of this agency's role is to administer workers' compensation claims. This agency completes this role through two different sections: the Claims Division and the Administrative Law Judge Division.
