Huntsville Workers Compensation Lawyers Am I entitled to Workers Compensation

Huntsville Workers Compensation Lawyers Am I entitled to Workers Compensation benefits? If you work in Alabama and suffered a job injury, you will generally be entitled to Alabama workers' compensation benefits if you can show:

•(i) That you are employed by your employer,

•(ii) that your employer has 5 or more employees,

•(iii) that your job injury occurred while you were performing your job duties (you were doing your job, not goofing off or under the influence of any drugs or alcohol),

•(iv) that the injury being claimed was the result of your job accident, and

•(v) that you provided notice of your job injury (an actual injury, not just that you were involved in an accident--this is an important distinguishment) within 90 days of said injury (the sooner the better),

then you should be entitled to Alabama Workers' Compensation benefits. In Alabama, if a worker can show this, then their employer must pay for:

(a) all of the workers' reasonably necessary medical treatment,

(b) reimburse the worker for mileage in driving back and forth for medical treatment or to receive medications;

(c) pay the worker 2/3rds of their average weekly wage when off work pursuant to the advice of a physician treating them for their job injuries (until the date they reach maximum medical improvement) and

(d) pay compensation to the injured worker for any permanent physical impairment sustained as a result of an on-the-job injury.

You may also be entitled to vocational benefits depending on the facts in your case.
