Workplace Injuries

If you have been injured on the job or at an industrial site, you may be entitled to compensation and/or statutory benefits. Our lawyers are experienced in these areas of the law and can help you recover the benefits and compensation you are due.

Construction workerAny person who is injured while on the job may be entitled to Workers’ Compensation benefits as mandated by the Alabama Workers’ Compensation Act. An injured worker may be entitled to medical care, lost wages, and compensation for any permanent disability that results from a work-related injury.

Even though Alabama law mandates that your employer provide you with these benefits, many employers and their insurance companies are reluctant to provide you with the full and complete benefits to which you are entitled. Many injured workers also find that they do not receive the benefits they are due in a prompt and timely manner. The law provides recourse to injured workers in these situations.

In addition to Workers’ Compensation benefits, other lawsuits or claims can be filed in workplace or industrial accidents. In certain cases, third-party injury claims can also be brought against other individuals, corporations, or companies who may have caused or contributed to your accident/ injury.

The benefit of third-party claims is that you can claim damages such as pain and suffering and punitive damages that are not available in a traditional Workers’ Compensation claim. Some examples of third-party claims our attorneys have successfully handled include the following:

  • Negligence on the part of employees/agents of other companies
  • Negligent maintenance of the property by the property owner
  • Faulty, unsafe or defective equipment or tools
  • Failure to provide required safety equipment
