Tempe Workers’ Compensation Lawyer
Workers’ compensation was established to assist injured workers in covering their medical costs and lost wages. Unfortunately, filing a claim can be complicated and easily denied if a mistake is made. Thousands of workers file claims for workers’ compensation each month, and when not represented by an attorney, those claims often get denied.
Depending on the injury and situation surrounding the injury, family members may also qualify for certain workers’ compensation benefits. There are various ways workers’ compensation can assist an injured worker. It is mostly used to cover lost earnings and get the injured party back to work. It is important to have a knowledgeable attorney on your side when filing a claim. The worker’s compensation lawyers of Crossman Law Offices, P.C. have the resources and experience necessary to handle all such claims. Contact us today for the assistance you need.

Why You Need a Workers’ Compensation Attorney
Understanding your rights as an injured worker is important. Many workplace accident victims rely heavily on their employer for guidance. While most business owners may mean well, workers’ compensation can be very complex. Our Tempe workers’ compensation lawyers are exceptionally knowledgeable and will place your best interests first.
Through workers’ compensation, an injured worker can receive financial assistance for:
- Medical treatment needed to recover from a work-related injury or disability
- Replace wages lost while recovering (generally, only partial wages)
- Helping an injured employee return to work
Workers’ compensation benefits do not include compensation for pain and suffering or punitive damages. In some cases, there may be more than one party responsible for your injuries. While workers’ compensation bars you from filing a civil action against your employer, ask your workers’ compensation lawyer about any third-party injury claims.
