Alabama Work Injury Lawyers right to comp benefits for a part time employee

Alabama Work Injury Lawyers right to comp benefits for a part time employee:With the holidays quickly approaching, many companies-such as FedEx, UPS, Belks, etc.-will be hiring part time workers. What rights do part time workers have to Alabama workers compensation benefits should they suffer a job injury?

Through the years the Alabama Job Injury attorneys at Powell and Denny have spoken to numerous injured workers who thought that their work injury would not be covered under Alabama's workers compensation laws because they were a part time employee. This is simply not the case.

Alabama's Workers Compensation Statute defines an employee/worker as "every person in the service of another under any contract of hire, express or implied, oral or written...." The number of hours you work each work is only relevant in determining your average weekly wage. As long as the injured worker can show that (i) they were hurt at work, (ii) that their employer has 5 or more regular employees, (iii) that they were hurt at work while performing their job duties and (iv) that they provided timely notice of being hurt at work to their employer, then they have a valid workers comp claim and are entitled to all right provided by the Alabama Workers Compensation laws.

If you live or work anywhere in Alabama, were a part time employee and were hurt at work, but you have been misled as to whether you can pursue workers compensation benefits, contact an experienced Alabama Workers Compensation lawyer today-contact Powell and Denny today.
