If you get injured while on the job, you should be entitled to workers’ compensation to help you pay for your injuries. As long as your claim is accepted, you will be reimbursed by the state workers’ compensation program for your incurred medical expenses. However, all too often, companies or even the workers’ compensation benefits-approval company try to avoid paying these costs.
There are strict rules and regulations that you have to follow in order to properly document your injury and then receive compensation or reimbursement for your medical care. Oftentimes, you must report the incident immediately, then you must see approved doctors from your job’s list.
All of this can become very confusing and can lead to you not getting coverage. If you have been involved in a construction site accident or any other work-related accident, the best thing you can do is follow the proper procedures and contact our attorneys. Especially if you’re being denied coverage, you need to contact our Prescott workers’ compensation lawyers so we can help fight to get you what you deserve.

Moreover, an employer with no workers’ compensation insurance can be charged with a class 6 felony.
