Let us fight for you!
Am I qualified for workers' compensation benefits?
According to the Alabama Department of Labor, you may be eligible for workers' compensation provided that you can meet the following four conditions:
- Your employer is required to be covered by workers' compensation insurance (under most circumstances, an employer in Alabama must carry a workers' compensation policy when it has five or more employees)
- The accident must "arise out of and in the course of employment"
- You must provide proper notice of the accident and of your injury to the employer
Why do I need a lawyer for my workers' compensation claim?
The criteria may sound simple, but asserting a successful claim can become a very contentious process. When you find yourself in a position where you have been hurt, you need medical treatment and you need to find a way to provide for yourself and your family in the face of temporary or permanent disability, you owe it to yourself to level the playing field by hiring an attorney who will work tirelessly to protect your interests.
