Often, workers’ compensation insurance carriers fail to acknowledge the seriousness of work-related accidents.

One of the most common types of personal injury claims are accidents in the workplace. If you are injured on the job, you should receive the medical treatment you need and adequate time to recover. You may also be entitled to compensation for medical fees, lost wages, and rehabilitation for disabilities.

The attorneys at the Birmingham, Alabama, law firm of Petway, French & Ford are experienced with Alabama’s workers’ compensation laws. They know the financial, medical, and personal impacts of a grievous on-the-job accident and want to help you obtain the compensation you deserve. Over their combined 60 years of experience, our attorneys have helped people who suffered various workplace injuries, including back and neck injuries, slip and fall, electrical burns and electrocutions, and severe cuts and dismemberment. Often, workers’ compensation insurance carriers fail to acknowledge the seriousness of work-related accidents. If your employer or insurance representative is denying the seriousness of an accident, refusing to pay for proper medical attention, or denying you time to recover, you need an experienced workers’ compensation attorney on your side.

Workers’ compensation is a state governed insurance program designed to aid people in the event of a work-related injury. A work-related injury occurs if an event or exposure in the workplace caused or contributed to the condition, or if it significantly provoked a pre-existing condition. There are four types of disabilities that can result from your accident in the workplace: temporary total disability, temporary partial disability, permanent total disability, and permanent partial disability. Workers who have been injured should not hesitate to file a workers’ compensation claim because they are afraid of losing their job, as Alabama has strict laws against this type of employer retaliation.
