Huntsville Workers Comp Lawyer Construction Zone Injury

Huntsville Workers Comp Lawyer Construction Zone Injury

Huntsville Workers Comp Lawyer Construction Zone Injury: In 2012, a little more than 2,000 automobile accidents occurred in construction zones in Alabama; of this figure, 21 people lost their lives.

Work injuries suffered while working in a construction zone are unfortunately not to be unexpected given the increased number of people driving longer and longer distances. In the days before the advent of workers compensation laws, an injured or killed worker might be said to have "assumed the risk" of catastrophic injury, but with workers compensation laws, this defense is no longer available to employers. If you are injured while performing your job duties in a construction zone-you are entitled to workers compensation benefits, even if the worker is partially at fault. If the injury results in the death of a worker, then their family would be entitled to certain death benefits available under Alabama's workers compensation statute.

Moreover, many times the injured worker would also be entitled to pursue damages for the personal injury (or wrongful death claim made by their family) caused by the negligence of a driver in addition to workers compensation benefits.

If you work in Huntsville, Alabama (or anywhere in the Madison County area*), you have suffered an injury while working in a construction zone and you have questions about your rights under the Alabama Workers Compensation laws, don't hesitate to contact the experienced Huntsville Workers Comp Lawyers at POWELL AND DENNY. We will work hard to help you achieve the best result possible in your case.
