Protecting the Rights of Injured Workers

Obtaining compensation for injuries or illnesses sustained on the job can be very difficult. In part, this is a complex process because it involves several areas of Arizona state and federal law, including workers' compensation, personal injury and Social Security Disability.

At Law Offices of Mark Wm. Hofgard, Esq., our lawyers are experienced in all three areas. In fact, our attorneys have more than 60 years of combined experience practicing law, and we are committed to helping our clients get full and fair compensation in the aftermath of workplace injuries.

Workers' Compensation Attorneys

Under state law in Arizona, workers are entitled to compensation for workplace injuries and occupational illnesses regardless of who caused the injury or illness. Compensation may be available for medical expenses and lost wages. However, work injury claims are frequently denied or reduced inappropriately. We help workplace injury victims get the compensation they need and deserve.

In certain cases, injured workers or their family members may be wise to pursue a personal injury claim. This is generally possible only when the injury was the result of a negligent act of another person, other than the employer or co-worker. This might be the case when defective equipment or a third-party contractor causes a workplace accident.

When a workplace accident results in disabling injuries, the victim may be entitled to Social Security Disability benefits. The SSD claims process is very complicated, requiring substantial documentation. We help work injury victims receive disability benefits.

It is important to contact our law firm soon after a workplace accident to ensure there is time to pursue the appropriate legal remedies. We handle work injury cases on contingency — we will not charge you attorney's fees unless we recover compensation for you.
