Birmingham Workers Comp Lawyer FYI

Birmingham Workers Comp Lawyer FYI

Birmingham Workers Comp Lawyer FYI: According to an article I just read, one out of five workers in the United States reports that they have suffered a job injury. In my opinion this number is probably much higher as many workers who have been hurt on the job are scared that they may lose their job if they report a job injury. For countless other injured workers, their bosses promise to "take care of them" if the worker lies and says that their injury happened at home and use their private health insurance and the worker agrees to lie-often to their detriment.

The number one type of reported work injuries (37%) were musculoskeletal injuries (eg. Lifting injuries, injuries caused by overexertion, etc.). The number two cause of job injuries (31%) according to this study was falls suffered at work (slipping on some water, falling down some stairs, stepping into a hole).

However you were injured, if you were performing services for your employer or were involved in incidentals part of employment (lunch time, bathroom break) and you suffered an injury, you are probably entitled to worker compensation benefits.
