Arizona, New Mexico & Tennessee Workers Compensation Attorneys
Under Arizona, New Mexico and Tennessee workers’ compensation laws, an employer is required to carry workers’ compensation insurance based on a minimum number of employees. These state laws are designed and enacted to ensure that workers that get hurt, disabled, or die from a work-related injury receive monetary compensation to help cover medical expenses, health care treatments, and possibly lost wages.
Sometimes, workers’ comp insurance is not as reliable as it should or could be, and that is when you need to contact a workers’ compensation attorney in Arizona, New Mexico and Tennessee who are experienced and knowledgeable about the workers’ comp laws, currently a part of Arizona, New Mexico and Tennessee state law.
Get Help with Workplace Injuries!
You have a limited window of opportunity to notify your employer of any workplace injuries! You only have seven days to notify your employer about your injury in Arizona, 15 days in New Mexico and Tennessee. If you fail to report your work related injury within the required time frame, your claim may not be accepted by workers’ comp. A workers’ compensation attorney may not be able to help with your claim if the injury went unreported or not properly documented.
After notifying your employer, make sure that you get a copy of your written accident report to keep for your personal records. This can help just in case of refutation of your workers’ comp claim. A workers’ compensation attorney can use your accident report and any other paperwork that lists your injuries for a current or future claim too.
It is also important that you seek immediate medical attention after your injury and keep a copy of all records for your files. You will want to make sure that your doctor’s report lists all injured body parts, the extent of the injuries, and any time off needed for recovery. This information will be a good point of reference for your workers’ compensation attorney to establish the severity of your injury and to prove the injury was the result of something that occurred at work. It can also be used as supportive evidence when filing your workers’ comp claim.
