Birmingham Work Injury Lawyers Construction Site Injury

The Birmingham Work Injury Lawyers at Powell and Denny have been representing injured workers for over 40 combined years, and in that time we have represented hundreds of injured workers who suffered job injuries while working on a construction site. If you work in the construction field, you know that you they work you do is highly skilled. It takes years to become proficient at your job and you are an expert at what you do. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for construction workers to suffer serious job injuries, such as a torn rotator cuff, a herniated cervical disc, herniated lumbar disk or some other work injury which leaves you unable to continue to work in your field of expertise. If you are facing this situation, you undoubtedly have questions and concern about your future; what are you entitled to under the Alabama Workers' Compensation law?

If you have suffered an injury to your head, neck, shoulders, back, hip, or have an injury which detrimentally effects the efficient functioning of your body and you are no longer able to perform your past work or earn the same type of money you were making prior to your injury, you are entitled to vocational benefits under Alabama's Workers' Comp Statute.

Your vocational benefits allow you to request your employer's workers' compensation insurance carrier to retrain you (if possible), or to obtain additional compensation for your loss of access to jobs available to you in your post injury condition. It is extremely rare in our experience for the workers' compensation insurance carrier to inform the worker injured in a construction site accident of their right to vocational benefits, and they are under no legal obligation to inform you of your rights as everyone is assumed to know the law

I can't build a house, construct a brick wall, wire a home for electricity or re-roof my house. For that I turn to the experience of a professional. If you have suffered a construction site injury and have questions, you should also at least speak with an Alabama Job Injury attorney to find out what your rights are. If you live in the Metro Birmingham Alabama area* and have suffered a job injury while working on a construction site and you have questions about your rights under the Alabama Workers' Compensation laws, the experienced Birmingham Alabama Work Injury attorneys at Powell and Denny would be happy to speak with you about your case.
