Independent contractors are freelancers or self-employed workers who are hired by a company to perform specific tasks without being taken on as an employee. If you’re an independent contractor, there are certain benefits you do not receive such as paid time off and health insurance. Workers’ compensation is another benefit that is only available to employees — as many contractors discover when they suffer from a work-related injury.
If you find yourself in this situation, it’s a good idea to consult an experienced Mesa independent contractor workers’ compensation lawyer in getting to know your benefits. As with other injury claims, you may have more options than you think, and the only way to really find out if you have a valid claim is to discuss your situation with a lawyer.

While true independent contractors are not eligible for workers’ compensation in Arizona, there are many situations in which an employee is misclassified as an independent contractor.
They may meet conditions that qualify them as an employee under Arizona Workers’ Compensation law. Some companies misclassify individuals as independent contractors rather than employees in order to save money, and that’s why your legal representation matters.
Being classified as an independent contractor does not automatically eliminate you from being able to collect workers’ compensation. An attorney can help you decide whether or not you are eligible to receive workers’ compensation as an independent contractor.
Independent contractors can qualify for workers’ compensation benefits more often than they realize. If you are an independent contractor and have sustained a workplace injury, you may qualify for certain workers’ compensation benefits.
