Workers’ compensation insurance is mandatory for any employer who has more than five employees in Alabama. If you are injured on the job, you are entitled to receive a portion of your wages while you are recovering and to have medical bills associated with your injury covered. Medical bills typically include doctor’s visits, rehabilitation therapy, and laboratory tests. Unfortunately, in some instances, legitimate claims are denied by the insurer.
When a workplace accident results in long-term disability, you may not know what your rights are under the law. Therefore, it is important for you to work with an attorney who understands workers’ compensation rules and how they apply to you. Employees in Birmingham AL and surrounding areas may also be unaware of their rights pertaining to medical claims, ability to return to work, and protection from retaliation for filing a claim. If you are injured on the job and you are uncertain about your rights, or your claim has been denied, contact Tron Law Firm immediately.
