While many workplace injuries are serious, a large number of employees do eventually return to work. Sometimes it can take weeks, and sometimes it can take months. However, there are some workers who are hurt so bad that they become permanently disabled.
Arizona’s workers’ compensation recognizes this reality and does make benefits available to employees who are injured on the job and cannot return to work at all or anywhere near the same level as before. While it may be good news if you fall into this category, the unfortunate part is that it may take a long time to secure the benefits you are entitled to receive. In other instances, you may initially be denied benefits for any number of reasons, even though you could be entitled to receive them.
