Mr. Schiffman has represented the injured and disabled throughout Arizona, including Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tempe, Avondale and Glendale. His office offers proven representation for Workers’ Compensation, Social Security Disability, and Long-term disability claims and would be happy to discuss your claim with you.
Nearly every individual hired in Arizona or working in Arizona is covered by the Arizona Workers' Compensation Act. Generally, any injury or illness that is job related is covered. However, many complicated issues arise, especially regarding medical issues. Attorneys always represent the employer and insurance carrier. Understand and protect your rights by having your own attorney. Call to see if we can help you as we have thousands of others.
Our office also has extensive experience dealing with Social Security Disability cases. If you have physical and/or mental health problems severe enough to keep you from working on a full time basis for at least 12 months then you may be entitled to benefits under the Social Security Disability (SSD) or SSI programs.
Back injuries are a major workplace safety challenge. More than one million workers experience back injuries every year, and back injuries account for one of every five workplace injuries or illnesses. At Schiffman Law Office, P.C., we have represented thousands of clients who have sustained back injuries and we would be glad to see if we can help you.
A neck injury can also cause serious problems. Symptoms can include neck pain, neck stiffness, weakness on one or both sides of the body, difficulty walking, holding the head up securely, feeling like "my head is going to slip off", shock, headache, numbness or tingling in various parts of the body. If you experience any of these symptoms and you are prevented from working at your regular job you should contact us immediately to see if you have a potential workers’ compensation or disability claim.
The shoulder has the best range of motion of any of the body’s joints. Our shoulders allow us to put our hands where they need to be for work, play, and our daily activities. To perform properly, the shoulder must have the right balance of strength, flexibility, and stability. Loss of this balance can lead to pain and injury. Shoulder injury resulting from a job related activity can be covered by workers’ compensation. Call us today to discuss your claim.

So, whether you live in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tempe, Avondale, Glendale, or elsewhere in Arizona, give us a call and see if we can help you. We are ready to help you with your claim.
