Pain And Suffering

Let's start with pure suffering. The short answer is that worker's comp. does not pay you for suffering. Meaning, they do not pay you for losing your house, for losing your job, or for having to live with this industrial injury. Worker's comp. is a no fault system. What that means is that you did not have to prove fault when you filed your claim. In exchange, the amount of money you get is regulated by statute.



While you do not get paid for being in pain, it may become a factor in your Arizona work comp case. If your pain limits you and your doctor limits your work, then you may be entitled to payment. What we want to know is how the pain affects your ability to earn. If, however, you are back working making the same amount as before the accident, then you probably will not be entitled to any money.
