As last week's blog post discussed, Arizona workers have a lot to worry about when it comes to filing their own workers' compensation claims. Even in a relatively small matter, an injured Maricopa County worker will have to meet deadlines, review notices and forms and take a lot of other steps in order to process their claim and get the compensation to which they are entitled.
The consequences of missing these deadlines or not following these technical procedures can range from minor to severe. In the worst cases, an injured worker may accidentally or through honest ignorance of the law forfeit their rights to benefits altogether.
Although many people probably ultimately wind up navigating through the system to achieve a good result, trying to learn the basics of workers' compensation law while recovering from an injury is stressful. It may be a lot easier for a person to simply contact an experienced Arizona workers' compensation law firm for help handling a claim. That is where our lawyers can be of valuable assistance.
We have decades of experience in handling workers' compensation cases, even cases that involved debilitating injuries or death. We work on a contingency basis, meaning that we do not collect a fee unless a worker gets benefits. Whether a person is just starting out with a new workers' compensation claim or is in the middle of an argument about benefits, we can help take the stress off so that the worker can focus on getting back to their job and regular routine of life.
