How Hendrickson & Palmer Can Help You!
As workers’ compensation attorneys, we meet many small business owners who are surprised to learn that they are out of compliance with Arizona workers’ compensation laws. The legal requirements are complex, and it is fairly easy to fall out of step with the state’s insurance regulations. At Hendrickson & Palmer, we frequently help small business owners and employers who have run into trouble with the workers’ compensation system. Whether a worker in your employ was injured on the job or the state has discovered that you are not adequately insured, you may face significant financial consequences and risk losing everything that you have built. Our attorneys have had success getting penalties significantly reduced or even rescinded completely. We are saved our employer clients tens of thousands of dollars in workers’ compensation fines and penalties. In many cases, claims are wrongfully filed by independent contractors and we have had great success in having these cases denied by workers’ compensation judges.

It does make a difference who you choose as your attorney through the workers’ compensation claims process.
When to Contact a Workers’ Compensation Attorney
Failing to carry workers’ compensation insurance carries grave consequences for employers whose employees are injured on the job. Employers who violate the Arizona Workers’ Compensation Act by failing to have workers’ compensation insurance can face fines and/or imprisonment. In addition to civil action by the Industrial Commission of Arizona, some employers who fail to carry proper insurance could face criminal proceedings. Such charges and investigations are costly and have the potential to harm your business and reputation. It is imperative that you act to protect yourself immediately. The Industrial Commission of Arizona also has the authority to issue orders for you to cease all business activities. With the financial stakes so high, it is imperative to choose a law firm with extensive knowledge of workers’ compensation law. Our Prescott Valley legal defense team has the knowledge and understanding of workers’ compensation laws and will use their extensive experience and standing in Arizona’s legal community to work toward a resolution that is beneficial to you.
