Workers’ Comp Injury Claim

In Alabama, almost all employees are covered by workers’ compensation insurance from their employers. This insurance is used to cover any injuries that occur to an employee on the job, including accidents and medical conditions caused by performing their job. If an accident occurs that causes an injury to an employee and they are covered by workers’ comp insurance, they cannot file a personal injury lawsuit against their employer. Instead, they need to file a workers’ comp claim to receive benefits for their injury.

Why Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer for Workers’ Comp?

Since employees are automatically covered for injuries under workers’ comp insurance, many injured workers do not seek legal assistance. This can be a mistake. All insurance companies, including those that offer workers’ comp, are for-profit businesses. They only want to pay the minimal amount for any claim made. Also, some employers want to reduce the amount of money paid out to employees through workers’ comp to keep their premiums lower. A personal injury attorney can make sure you get fair compensation for your on-the-job injury.

While you cannot file a personal injury lawsuit against your employer, there may be other options. If another entity contributed to your injury like an on-site contractor or a driver that caused an accident while you were working, you may be able to file a claim against them.

    Rafiq A.

    My family and I met Attorney Dwayne Brown after the unfortunate accident involving my niece. Attorney Brown did an exceptional job representing my family. He was the consummate professional, and treated my family with the utmost dignity and respect. As a result of his representation, my family was able to achieve a substantial settlement in our case. Although we obviously did not get our loved back, we are prayerful that we met Attorney Brown. My family would highly recommend Attorney Brown to anyone in a similar situation.

    An excellent and professional lawyer. He took on a car accident case on my behalf, worked with me from across the country, and was just as vigorous in his pursuit of justice on day 912 as he was on day 1.

Attorney Brown resolved my case to my absolute satisfaction and did an excellent job. I highly recommend his services.
