Have you suffered injuries during work? Most of the times, the employer and the employee would be protected by the worker’s compensation system. It would prove beneficial to both the employer and the employee. The worker’s compensation system would ensure that the employer would be protected from several lawsuits and the employee would be saved by suing the employer. 

However, if the employer does not have a worker’s compensation system, what are your options? There would be several injured workers who would call up Tucson workers compensation attorney worried about their employer not having worker’s compensation system. They would be worried about their medical expenses, lost wages, and damages not likely to be reimbursed by the compensation claim.
