Yuma Workers’ Compensation Lawyer
Ensure Your Medical Costs Are Covered Following a Workplace Injury
If you are injured on the job, workers' compensation is designed to compensate you for your losses. Employers must carry this insurance on your behalf and honor your claim. If you were affected by a personal injury on the job, a legal contract exists between the employer, employee, and the insurer which legally obliges the carrier to provide benefits under the terms of the employer's workman's compensation policy.
Both employers and insurance carriers are required to act in good faith and fair dealings when evaluating worker claims. If you feel you were unfairly denied benefits, get help from the Yuma workers’ compensation lawyer at Bowman, Smith & Kallen today.

Holding Employers Accountable
While employers are required by law to take care of their employees when they are hurt on the job, they often try to redirect the blame to avoid having their rates increase when reporting an accident. When such a breach of duty occurs, getting help from a qualified attorney can be the best way to protect your legal interests in a workers' compensation case.
You may have a workers' compensation legal case if an employer and the insurance company:
- Fail to provide you with the compensatory funds in a workers' compensation case you are entitled to receive
- Directly defy the terms of your contract
- Fail to act in a timely manner
If you have filed a valid workers' compensation claim with your insurance company for an on-the-job injury or accident that was not honored, you have the right to pursue a civil action for the workers' compensation damages you are owed.
