Jones, Skelton & Hochuli is a recognized leader in defending employers in workers’ compensation claims. Our workers’ compensation team boast more than 70 years of experience advising employers on their liabilities and obligations under the Workers’ Compensation laws.

Arizona law mandates that employers secure workers’ compensation insurance for their employees. Workers’ compensation is a “no fault” system in which an injured employee is entitled to receive benefits for an industrial injury, no matter who caused the job-related accident. This means that even if the employee was at fault or partially at fault in causing the industrial injury, in most instances, he or she will be entitled to benefits under the workers’ compensation system.

Exceptions do exist, however, and knowing when and how to litigate claims is essential to successfully defending workers’ compensation cases. Jones, Skelton & Hochuli clients benefit from our team’s in-depth experience, which includes a former Chief Counsel for the Industrial Commission of Arizona. With decades of industry experience, our team creates effective legal strategies to successfully resolve workers’ compensation claims, reducing the likelihood that work-related injuries will lead to civil lawsuits.
