Glendale Workers' Compensation Lawyers
What Is Workers’ Compensation?
If you suffered an injury or illness while you were working, no matter what your job, you are likely entitled to workers’ compensation. This state program can help you receive payments for your medical bills and other expenses when your injuries prevent you from working. No matter who is at fault, you may have grounds to file a claim to help you recover and get back to work.

What Should I Do if I’ve Been Injured at Work?
After an injury, it is important that you take the time you need to recover. Many workplace accidents can lead to serious complications if not properly treated. Workers’ compensation is in place to ensure you get the medical care and wage compensation you need during the recovery process.
If you’ve been in an accident, it is important that you take the following steps:
- Report the injury to your supervisor, manager, or boss
- Seek medical attention or call 911 if it is an emergency
- Fill out a workers’ compensation claim with your employer
- Wait for your claim to be accepted or denied by your employer’s insurance company
If your claim was denied, you have the right to fight the decision. Paperwork must be filed within strict deadlines, however, so it is important that you act quickly. A board-certified workers’ compensation attorney can help you avoid mistakes, file an application for adjudication, navigate an MMI conflict, make an appointment with a qualified medical evaluator (QME) for an evaluation, and represent you at the hearing in front of a judge. It is also important to hire an attorney if you ever experience any disputes with the claims process. A seasoned lawyer can assist with the appeals process and work to make sure you are receiving the benefits to which you are entitled.
