Huntsville Workers Compensation Lawyers What if there were no witnesses to my Job Injury

Huntsville Workers Compensation Lawyers What if there were no witnesses to my Job Injury

Huntsville Workers Compensation Lawyers What if there were no witnesses to my Job Injury? While many job injuries happen in the middle of the warehouse with plenty of witnesses present, many do not. If you suffer a job injury, but there were no witnesses to the event, can your employer refuse to file a Workers Compensation claim?

NO. There is no requirement in Alabama that a job injury be witnessed in order to be compensable, and as such, your employer is under the same obligation to file a First Report of Injury for a non-witnessed injury as they are when the entire warehouse saw the injury occur.

We have had to file suit several times through the years when the defendant simply refused to believe that our client was injured because there were no witnesses, and we are quick to point out to the court that just because the injury wasn't witnessed does not mean that it did not occur.

If you live in Madison County, you were hurt at work and you have questions about your right to Alabama Workers Compensation benefits, don't hesitate to call and speak with one of the experienced Huntsville Alabama Workers' Compensation Lawyers at Powell and Denny. We would be happy to talk to you and answer your questions.
