Securing Benefits For Workers Injured On-The-Job
Workplace injuries are common, occurring in all manner of work environments. If you suffered a workplace injury or illness, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits.
Workers’ compensation functions as a form of social insurance. Employers carry the insurance to pay for lost wages and medical care in the event an employee suffers a job-related illness or injury. While many workers’ compensation cases are handled without an attorney, serious injuries or claims that have been denied require legal representation.
Dix & Forman, P.C., is one of the very few firms that handles workers’ compensation claims in Southern Arizona and has attorneys who are Certified Specialists in workers’ compensation claims.

Is Another Party Liable For Your Workplace Injury?
In certain situations, another party besides your employer may be at-fault for your workplace injury. Third-party liability claims occur when someone not working for your employer causes your injury. For example, if your on-the-job injury was the result of a defective product or tool, you could file a personal injury claim against the device manufacturer. Third-party liability claims allow you to obtain additional damages. Your lawyer can help you file a third-party claim in conjunction with your workers’ compensation claim.
Did Your Employer Or Their Insurer Deny Your Claim?
To avoid payment, employers of their insurance company may try to deny your workers’ compensation claim. And even claims that have been accepted may have treatments denied or unpaid compensation. We can help you back against an unfair claim denial.
