Mobile Workers’ Compensation

Suffering an accident on the job can be absolutely devastating, and result in missed time at work and mounting medical bills. Fortunately, Alabama provides workers’ compensation to employees to cover these losses.

However, as straightforward as the laws may seem, employers and their insurance companies have shown time and again their willingness to do anything to lower their expense. This can include minimizing your injury, claiming it isn’t work-related, suggesting you received unreasonable treatment, or demanding you to return to work quickly after a serious injury.

Mobile is home to some high-risk industries, like shipbuilding and aerospace engineering, where employees work with heavy or highly mechanized equipment. Accidents involving heavy machinery can be particularly devastating, and make workers’ compensation an absolute necessity.

When some of Mobile’s employers refuse to stand by injured employees, our team at Morgan & Morgan is there to help you recover compensation for your injury, and get you justice. Fill out our free case evaluation form today.

  • Workplace Accidents: Cases Our Attorneys Handle

    Our attorneys handle on-the-job injury claims involving, but not limited to, the following:

    • Muscular injuries, broken bones, torn ligaments, torn rotator cuffs, and herniated disks from lifting, pushing, or other actions;
    • Sickness from exposure to toxins, including occupational diseases like mesothelioma or Black Lung;
    • Head injuries like concussions or traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) from falling objects or falls;
    • Tendonitis or other repetitive motion injuries;
    • Construction accidents;
    • Hearing loss or damage;
    • Cold and heat stress or burn injuries from accidents like electrocution; and
    • Assorted injuries to the back, spinal cord, shoulder, eyes, knees, neck, hip, respiratory organs, ankles, wrists, feet and hands.

    This list isn’t exhaustive. Any injury sustained by an employee in the course of their job is considered work-related, and employees are not required to prove the reason their injury occurred, because workers’ compensation is a no-fault system.

  • What to Do After Being Injured on the Job

    The most important thing you can do after suffering an on-the-job injury is to seek medical treatment for your injury. Afterward, you must report it to your employer within five days, according to Alabama law.

    When a claim proceeds as planned, the employee receives care from a physician, who identifies the injury and determines what treatment is necessary and if and when the injured worker can return to duty.

    The worker begins receiving checks every two weeks for ⅔ of their average biweekly wage, typically calculated based on the three months prior to the injury, until they’re able to return to work.

    Unfortunately, Alabama workers’ compensation claims do not always proceed as they should, and can be fully or partially denied, often based on the employer-appointed physician’s appraisal of your injuries. This could range from understating, shortening recovery time, or ignoring your pain.

  • Benefits Available for Injured Alabama Workers

    Alabama offers a variety of benefits to workers injured on the job:

    • Injured workers are entitled to receive necessary medical treatment free of charge.
    • Weekly compensation benefits are calculated based on the average of the prior 52 weeks of earnings multiplied by two-thirds.
    • Permanent or temporary partial body injuries can receive compensation for up to 300 weeks. Permanent total or temporary total can receive compensation for an unlimited period of time.

    Your situation may be similar to one of these or different depending on your injuries, and a workers’ compensation attorney can help you understand what you’re entitled to. If you’ve been in an injury, you might need that compensation as soon as possible.

  • Contact Our Mobile Workers’ Comp Lawyers Today

    An injury on the job can be debilitating, painful, and in some cases, horrifying. Worse, your employer and their insurance provider may not be concerned with your well-being, and thus unwilling to pay for your recovery.

    If your employer is denying your claim, forcing you back to work too early, or claiming that your recovery is progressing too slowly, you need a Mobile workers’ compensation attorney. Our attorneys have a successful track record of getting employees the compensation they need to recover and move on with their lives. Fill out our free, no-risk case evaluation today.
