Were You Injured At Work?
Helping You Navigate Your Work Comp Injury
You have MORE RIGHTS than you know!
Under Arizona law, it is required that employers secure workers’ compensation insurance for their employees. Workers’ compensation is a ‘no fault’ system under which injured employees are entitled to benefits for an industrial injury regardless of who caused the work-related accident.
Many workers believe that the only option for someone injured at work is to file a worker’s compensation claim. This is often not the case, and there are many times when Arizona workers’ compensation benefits are not enough. For example, when a third party, such as an independent contractor, caused the injury, or a dangerous product was used at your workplace, you have other remedies available that may be greater than workers’ compensation benefits. Workers’ compensation benefits may help you with medical bills and lost wages, but if your injury or accident was not caused by your employer, normal personal injury laws are applicable.

Were you injured at work in Arizona?
When you are injured at work, there are steps you must take to protect your rights, and get the medical care and legal assistance you need quickly. In Arizona, Workers’ Compensation is administered by the Industrial Commission of Arizona, which enables injured workers to get both the treatment and care they need and the wages they lose from being out of work. Most employers must carry workers’ compensation insurance or act as their own insurer to cover any expenses related to workplace injuries and accidents. But there are several key issues you need to know about to protect all of your rights.

Undocumented workers in Arizona have LEGAL PROTECTION!
Your immigration status DOES NOT prohibit you from getting workers’ compensation benefits in Arizona. This is a widely misunderstood issue that causes many undocumented workers to often avoid filing claims for fear of being discovered as an undocumented immigrant. According to Arizona law, employees are “every person in the service of any employer … including aliens and minors legally or illegally permitted to work for hire.” So you cannot be denied your workers’ compensation claim just because of your immigration status.
Immigrant workers face unique challenges when they are injured at work. Your employer might tell you that because you’re an undocumented worker you can’t get workers’ compensation benefits. This is NOT TRUE! Your situation can also be complicated if you used a different name or social security number when applying for employment. Using a fake identity or social security number could be a violation of other areas of law but it is not a valid reason to deny workers’ compensation benefits.
