Injured On the Job? Equal Rights. No Exceptions.

Birmingham Workers' Compensation Lawyers

Have you been injured on the job? You may be eligible to receive coverage through workers' compensation insurance. At Wrady Michel & King, we are committed to helping people who live and work in Birmingham and throughout Alabama to safeguard their legal rights under the state and federal employment laws.

Unfortunately, not everyone who is qualified for workers' compensation benefits gets the full amount that they deserve in terms of a replacement for lost wages and payment for medical treatment. In some cases, valid claims are denied outright. Don't take chances with the outcome of your claim; you have already been through enough, and you should not have to fight with your employer and the workers' compensation insurance company to get the benefits you deserve. 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 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

Should I Hire an Attorney 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.

Our experienced team is well versed in this area of the law, and are true advocates on your side, fighting for your best interest all along the way. Call our firm today to find out how we can help you particularly if:

  • You have a preexisting condition
  • Your claim has been denied
  • Your permanent disability rating has been challenged
  • You have a workers’ compensation hearing coming up
  • You’re already receive other government benefits
