In Alabama, you have certain rights relating to the safety of your workplace. If you get injured at work, you should notify your employer immediately. You should fill out the appropriate forms and seek necessary and appropriate medical treatment.
Your employers’ workers’ compensation carrier should pay for your medical treatment and provide some additional financial benefits in the form of disability payments while you are unable to work. Sometimes these insurance companies refuse to do so. When this happens, you may need the services of an attorney.
Workers’ compensation insurance carriers sometimes take the unfair position that you were not injured at all or that your injuries are not severe enough to qualify under the workers’ compensation statute. If that happens to you, Hodges Trial Lawyers are willing to discuss your situation with you.
Some injured workers are even entitled to benefits beyond medical care and temporary payments, such as vocational and/or job retraining. If you were injured at work and believe that you have been denied benefits you are legitimately entitled to, Hodges Trial Lawyers may be able to help.
