What Should I Do If I Was Injured At Work?
Have You Been Injured On The Job?
Many people who have been injured while working at a construction site, in a warehouse or in an office setting may not know where to turn for help. Unfortunately, they may wait too long to find the answers to their questions, and as a result, be denied the benefits they so desperately need. Do not let this happen to you. For dedicated legal advice and guidance following a serious work accident, contact Jerome Gibson, P.C. Our firm has more than 48 years of experience representing injured workers in Phoenix and throughout Arizona.
Report The Work Injury Accident To Your Employer
The first thing to do after a work accident is to contact your supervisor. Be very specific about your injury. Explain how the work injury occurred, what part of the body is injured and the extent of the injury. Your employer is required to file an injury report within 10 days of the accident, so it is imperative you speak with someone right away.
What Should I Do If My Benefits Were Terminated?
Workers’ Comp Benefits Terminated?
Workers’ compensation benefits may be terminated or denied for a variety of reasons. A doctor may believe the injury has healed. The insurance company may question whether the benefits are necessary.
If you have recently received a notice of a change in benefits, contact an attorney at Jerome Gibson, P.C., for immediate help. Our firm has handled terminated and denied benefits claims for people in Phoenix, Tucson and throughout Arizona for more than 48 years. Let us help you too.
What Will Happen To Me After An Injury?
What Happens After Your Injury?
If you have suffered an injury or illness and are no longer able to do your job, the first question on your mind may be, “What will happen to me?”. Just because you are not able to work does not mean you do not have expenses. You have bills to pay, a family to care for and other day-to-day costs that need to be covered. How will you handle these costs when an on-the-job injury or a disabling condition has prevented you from getting a paycheck? That is what workers’ compensation is for. Our attorneys can help you obtain benefits. We have helped thousands of Arizonans, and we can help you, too.

Why Was My Claim Denied?
Has Your Claim Been Denied?
Many workers’ compensation claims are denied. The workers’ compensation carrier may deny that you were injured at work. It may dispute the severity of the injury. It may deny any responsibility for your injury. You work hard, and you do not deserve to be treated that way.
Fortunately, you still have options. This process does not have to stop at denial. Our attorneys can help you get the compensation and treatment you deserve.
We Provide The Help You Need
When you found out that your workers’ compensation claim was denied, you were probably shocked. You know that you suffered a serious injury. You also know that you have bills to pay, a family to care for and day-to-day expenses. Without being able to work, these costs will be hard to cover.
We are here to see that you do not lose hope. We will fight to get you the benefits you deserve. Much of what we do involves negotiation. Our first step, of course, will be to gather all the necessary information. Then we will work with the insurance carriers’ representatives to see if we can have them reconsider the denial. Many times, we are able to resolve these matters through tough negotiation.
