Workplace injuries are something that occurs with varying levels of frequency and severity depending on your occupation. Understandably, workers who are involved in field work, transportation, construction, etc. are more prone to workplace injuries when compared to someone who has an office job that mostly involves being on their computers at their desks.
When workplace injuries occur, the consequences may be trivial or at the other end of the spectrum, they could be severe and life altering indeed and could even result in permanent disabilities or death.
Obviously, the victim of a workplace accident is going to face economic losses in the form of medical expenses and possibly the loss of ability to work and earn wages (both past and future). Thanks to the state law in Arizona, victims of workplace injuries are entitled to compensation from their employers. This is what separates America from other countries. If one of your employees is hurt on the job doing something they were entitled to do and something that they were supposed to do since it is their job, it is only logical to expect employer compensation of some sort to kick in.

Workers compensation benefits have been introduced in Arizona with two fundamental goals in mind, which are:
- Supplying health care and financial support to workers or employees who were hurt while on the duty.
- In case the victim dies as a result of a workplace accident, providing workers compensation benefits to dependent relatives of the worker that can no longer count on the support or income that the deceased worker used to bring in.
Challenges in acquiring workers compensation benefits
Filing for and receiving workers compensation benefits is no walk in the park. It is not uncommon for people to file frivolous workers compensation benefits by faking injury or sickness or in some cases pretending to still be disabled from a worker’s compensation injury even after they have in fact actually fully recovered.
Therefore, employers are wary when it comes to any workers compensation claim, and they have the right to be. But to unduly and without reason deny workers compensation benefits to victims who may be in dire needs of these benefits is most certainly not the right way to go about it, it is totally unacceptable.
