    Unhappy How To File A Claim In Arizona

    Okay, Hello my names Missy,

    This is new to me, I live in Arizona. I have never fell at work and don't want to get screwed but I feel like I am already.

    Here is the just, I fell on Friday the 1st of April at work three people saw me slip on something I fell to the ground and reported it to my employer. Then Saturday my hand and foot were in really bad pain so I went to the ER they did Ex-rays and then told me nothing was broke and sent me home. Sunday I rested did what the Doctor told me, then Monday I go to work for two hours because the ER Doctor didn't give me any Work restrictions that day I went to see the Employees Doctor he gave me work restrictions. Then Tuesday comes they find me something to do with me only being on my feet for 30mins every hour, but my boss sends me home at 11am, then tells me to take Wednesday off, I go to the Doctor Wednesday and he is sending me to a Special Doctor, then went to work today Thursday and was sent home at noon, then I was told to not come in on Friday. Now my schedule is 5am to 1pm should be gettting around 37 hrs and this week I only got 15hrs, I think next week its going to be the same I think my Boss is giving me the run around so that I won't get WC.
    What do you guys think, please help me, it isn't my faught I fell, its my works.....

    Did you go to the site SH gave the link to ?
    There is info there on the process in filing a injury report, and claim for WC benefits. It is the employee/IW responsibility to see that the ER/employER is notified and- claim is filed. Not the hospital.

    Apparently there has been -a claim of some sort filed, or you wouldn't have a CA or 'case worker' from the IC.
    she tells me that Arizona law you have to be out of work for seven days straight but like I said about my boss will work four hours then give me a day off then work me again,
    The seven days doesn't have to be consecutive... but if you want TD benefits paid, your Dr must certify disability exists. TD isn't paid automatically, or because your ER won't let you work.
    You shouldn't be going to work unless your Dr has released you to a light duty restriction if that is what you require. Your boss doesn't make decisions in the WC claim. The Dr, and CA do.
    I need help I am doing what they said do to.
    Then you need to consult with a WC atty. There is no fee for the consultation, and a fee would only be due if there is a PD indemnity award.
