Ashville Alabama Job Accident Lawyer

Hurt at Work, Job Injury, Injured at Work, On the Job Injury, Workplace doesn't matter what you call it, if you have suffered a job accident while performing your job duties for your employer (and your employer has 5 or more employees regularly employed), then by law you are entitled to worker's compensation benefits.

Even if you were partially at fault for the job accident (as long as you were not goofing off or under the influence of alcohol or drugs), you are entitled to Alabama Workers Compensation benefits because Alabama's Workers' Compensation Statute gets rid of liability based on fault in job related injuries and instead approaches the injury in a no-fault manner. Now, as long as an injured worker can show that (i) he/she suffered a work injury (ii) while performing their job duties and (iii) that timely notice of said injury was provided to their employer, then the injured worker is entitled to workers' compensation benefits in Alabama and they are entitled to have (a) all of the workers' reasonably necessary medical treatment paid for, (b) reimbursement of mileage in driving back and forth for medical treatment or to receive medications; (c) receipt of 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) are entitled to compensation for any permanent physical impairment sustained as a result of an on-the-job injury.
