Alabama Workers Compensation Questions Do I have a right to a Jury Trial

Alabama Workers Compensation Questions Do I have a right to a Jury Trial

Alabama Workers Compensation Questions: Do I have a right to a Jury Trial if I suffered a compensable workers compensation injury in Alabama?

We have been asked this question for years. Most injured workers know that they have a right to a trial on their workers compensation case, and most of them believe that this includes a right to a jury trial. This is simply not the case. In Alabama, workers compensation trials are bench trials, which means that the judge hears all the evidence and issues the decision. Bench trials are the only means of trying a case in Alabama unless the defendant argues that your job injury was the result of some form of willful misconduct on your part. This means that having a lawyer who has experience with the various judges who handle workers compensation claims is of vital importance, as the lawyer will know what the judge likes, and more importantly dislikes, in a workers' compensation case.

If you or a loved one suffered a workplace injury and you have questions about your right to Alabama Workers' Compensation benefits, don't hesitate to contact and talk to one of the experienced Alabama Workers Compensation Attorneys at Powell and Denny today.
