Workers’ compensation is a no-fault system. That means that even if an error on your part contributed to your injury, you can still apply for benefits. If your injury occurred on the job or because of the job, or if your work activities made a pre-existing condition worse, you may have a claim.

In Phoenix Arizona, unless you rejected your right to worker’s comp before your injury, or in a few other narrow cases, workers’ must rely on a Phoenix work injury lawyer — you cannot sue your employer, even if the accident was caused by negligence or failure to adhere to safety regulations. Some workers find this frustrating, but in most cases, everyone benefits by removing questions of “fault” from the equation. Instead of your case being heard in front of the county judge, it will be heard in front of the Industrial Commission of Arizona.
Unfortunately, the insurance company claims adjuster is not on your side. He or she will not explain all possible outcomes or offer alternative options, and certainly will not tell you what the maximum amount your case is worth.
