Alabama Workers' Comp Lawyer I was sued after being hurt at work

Alabama Workers' Comp Lawyer I was sued after being hurt at work

Alabama Workers' Comp Lawyer I was sued after being hurt at work: While it is not common place, it is not atypical for a worker who suffered a serious on the job injury to be sued by their employer (actually the workers compensation insurance carrier) regarding their work injury. Understandably, most injured workers are frightened by this and they do not know what to do.

First thing to do is to call and speak with an experienced Alabama Workers Comp lawyer.

The injured worker has not done anything wrong, and they are not in trouble. Generally, what has happened is that the attorneys who represent the workers compensation insurance carrier (technically they represent your employer, but in most cases the workers compensation carrier hires them, pays their bills and decides what to offer you) has made a strategic move. Venue (the place where a lawsuit can be brought) may lay in two different counties, and the defense attorney has gone ahead and filed suit in the county they believe to be most favorable for their client.

An answer must be filed to prevent a Default Judgment being taken against you, so it is vital that you contact a workers compensation lawyer as soon as possible. From there, the case proceeds as any other claim, but instead of being the plaintiff, the injured worker is now the defendant.

If you suffered an on the job injury and you have questions about your right to Alabama Workers Compensation benefits, don't hesitate to contact and speak with one of the experienced Alabama Worker Compensation lawyers at Powell and Denny today.
