Protecting the rights of Arizona workers

On Behalf of | Feb 12, 2016 | Workers' Compensation

A workplace accident can happen out of nowhere. An Arizona resident may be going about his or her normal routine, completing the daily tasks that are required, when all of a sudden an accident occurs. While the accident may only take a second to happen, the results can be long lasting. A worker may require years of medical care and lost wages in order to recover. These years of recovery can have a hefty financial toll, and victims may not know where to turn.

Thankfully, the attorneys at Jerome, Gibson, Stewart, Stevenson, Engle & Runbeck, P.C. have years of experience protecting the rights of Arizona workers.

Some may think that workers’ compensation is a simple process that the employer mostly takes care of automatically. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Oftentimes, victims may need the help of an attorney to ensure that their rights are being protected and that they are being given what they deserve. There are complexities that can arise during every step of the process, making it vital that workers are strongly represented.

Accidents can occur in any type of work environment. While some are more hazardous, for instance, construction sites and warehouses tend include greater threats to employee safety, all work environments, including offices, can pose risks for employees. No matter in what type of environment the work accident occurred, workers often have rights. With the help of a skilled attorney, workers can fight to see that their rights are protected.
