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

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.

Speak with a Workers' Compensation Attorney Now

When you work with us, we will be prepared to fight for you throughout the case, from establishing the validity and scope of your claim to taking the case as far as necessary to secure the benefits that you need and deserve. In the event that you are targeted with any type of intimidation retaliation from your employer for filing the claim, we are ready to help you pursue the appropriate legal action for relief and to hold the employer accountable.
