Can’t recall injury? No problem

Workers who can’t recall injury may get compensation

PHOENIX – Employees who don’t know exactly how they got injured during normal business hours may be entitled to workers’ compensation insurance, the Arizona Court of Appeals has ruled.

The groundbreaking decision says when there is no witness to an injury – including the victim himself – the employee is entitled to the presumption that the incident is work-related. Until now, that rule had existed only if the worker was killed.
