CULLMAN Why You May Need an Alabama Workers Comp Attorney

Every day in the Cullman County, Alabama, a worker suffers some type of job injury; while most of the incidents are minor in nature and require only one or two visits to the workers' compensation physician, it is not always easy to tell whether an injury is merely a sprained muscle or something which will require surgery. What you do immediately following any job injury could have long lasting results on you and any potential workers' compensation claim. With this in mind, in the next few blogs, we will be discussing why the residents of Cullman County may need an Alabama Workers' Compensation Attorney, if for no other reason to ask questions after you have suffered a job injury.

The first reason you may need to speak with an Alabama Workers Comp Attorney is because it is your employer's workers' compensation insurance carrier who will be making the decisions about your medical care and compensation, not your employer. Countless times the Alabama Workers Comp Attorneys at Powell and Denny have spoken with injured workers who repeatedly stated that they loved their job and that they were shocked when their claim for workers' compensation benefits were denied because they thought they were friends with their employer. We inform those injured workers that it is not their employer calling the shots in whether to deny or accept their workers' compensation claim; rather, it is the insurance company. Insurance companies are not flesh and blood people with feelings, they are businesses whose primary purpose is to make money, and that necessarily involves doing their best not to pay out every viable claim.

If you have suffered a job related injury, but you have been informed that liability has been denied, don't give up. Call the experienced Alabama Workers Compensation Attorneys at Powell and Denny.
