Fairfield Alabama Job Injury Lawyer

If you live or work in Fairfield Alabama (or anywhere in Jefferson County*) and you have suffered a job injury+ you might be entitled to compensation and medical coverage under Alabama's Workers' Compensation Law.

To be entitled to benefits under the Alabama Workers' Compensation Statute, you (i) have to be employed (either by contract or implied contract) by an employer who regularly employees 5 or more people; (ii) your job injury has to have been sustained while you were performing your job duties and (iii) that timely notice was given to your employer about your job injury (you have up to 90 days in which to report any job injury, but it is always best to report any job injury immediately). If you meet all these elements, then you are entitled to workers' compensation benefits under Alabama's Workers' Compensation Statute.

Having a valid Alabama Workers Comp claim means that you, as the injured worker, are entitled to (a) having your employer pay for all your reasonably necessary medical treatment, (b) reimburse the worker for mileage in driving back and forth for medical treatment or to receive medications; (c) pay the worker 2/3rds of their average weekly wage when off work pursuant to the advice of a physician treating them for their job injuries (until the date they reach maximum medical improvement) and (d) pay compensation to the injured worker for any permanent physical impairment sustained as a result of an on-the-job injury.

If your job injury aggravates a pre-existing, underlying condition, then workers' compensation is responsible for said aggravation, so if the adjuster informed you that workers' comp was not responsibly for your injury because you had a pre existing condition-don't believe them as they may be lying to you (not a mistake, a lie made in an attempt to avoid paying you the benefits the law states you are entitled to).
