Workers' Compensation Q & A

What is workers’ compensation?

If you’re injured on the job, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. You may think of injury as acute trauma, such as a fall or cut, but overuse injuries that gradually damage your tissue and joints over time may also be attributed to on-the-job duties.

Arizona’s workers’ compensation laws require employers to carry workers’ compensation to cover injuries that occur on the job or for employees who develop an illness due to their job duties and are unable to work.

What role do doctors play in workers’ compensation claims?

The expert team at Rincon Pain and Spine understands the complex nature of workers’ compensation cases. Timely and accurate medical care is essential to a person’s ability to return to work or obtain the benefits they deserve due to injury.

The team at Rincon Pain and Spine provides careful diagnosis and high-quality treatment. They also help expedite the workers’ compensation claim process by facilitating good communication between you and your case manager, insurance adjuster, and employer.

What should I do if I get injured at work?
