MY girlfriends father recently tore his rotator cup at work and went to the doctor. After an MRI and a talk with his employer, they told him he would only receive a standard 2 weeks of workman's compensation. Only problem is he will be unable to work for 4 months after the necessary surgery, and the position and wages that the company is offering in exchange is laughable in comparison to his normal pay. I know that there is more he can do to get the proper compensation, but I am from Illinois and don't really know Arizona state worker's compensation law. I am trying to help him because he is really down about paying the bills with the meager amount that was offered. Is there more to worker's compensation than the two weeks and/or is there papers that need to be filed for extensions or proper compensation. Being put out of work and not getting your normal wages you built your life around is harsh, and any advice towards this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
