Birmingham Workers Compensation Lawyers Boss refuses to file Injury Report

 

Birmingham Workers Compensation Lawyers Boss refuses to file Injury Report: Every now and then we receive a call for a worker who was hurt at work who is complaining that their employer refuses to file an Injury Report. The reason most often given is that the injured workers boss simply does not believe that they are injured, but the reason behind why an Accident report is not being completed is immaterial.

By law, if a workers claims to have suffered a work injury (not just having a job accident, but suffering an injury), then the employer is supposed to file a First Report of Injury with the Alabama Department of Labor. If your employer simply refuses to do this, what do you do?

The first thing we tell the injured worker to do is to contact the Alabama Department of Labor at (334) 353-0690 and report your employer's refusal to comply with the law. They will then contact your employer and an injury report should be filed in a timely manner thereafter.

The next thing we bring up is whether they need to speak with an attorney to see if they believe they should hire an attorney to represent them in their claim for workmans compensation benefits. If your employer is already saying that they don't believe you or is refusing to file an Accident report for whatever reason, chances are that you will need a lawyer somewhere down the line.

If you live or work in the Metro Birmingham* area and are having problems getting your employer to file a workers compensation claim, or if you have other questions about your rights under the Alabama Workmans Compensation system, don't hesitate to contact the experienced Birmingham Workers Compensation Lawyers at Powell and Denny. We would be happy to speak with you.
