Alabama Workers Compensation Questions Do I Need a Lawyer

Alabama Workers Compensation Questions Do I Need a Lawyer

Alabama Workers Compensation Questions: Do I need a Lawyer to get Alabama workers compensation benefits?

NO. No one has to have an attorney to represent them, but I would like to let you know what

the Court of Appeals of North Carolina and the 1st District Court of Appeals in Florida had to say on this subject. The Florida 1st District Court of Appeals said as follows in Singletary v. Mangham Construction, 418 So.2d 1138 (Fla. 1st DCA, 1982): "Workers' compensation is a very important field of the law, if not the most important. It touches more lives than any other field of the law. It involves the payments of huge sums of money. The welfare of human beings, the success of business, and the pocketbooks of consumers are affected daily by it." (emphasis added)

The North Carolina Court of Appeals stated "...in contested workers' compensation cases today, access to competent legal counsel is a virtual necessity." Church v. Baxter Travenol Laboratories, Inc., 409 S.E.2d 715, 718 (1991).

Alabama's workers' compensation laws have very specific rules, and if you do not know what to do, or what time period you have in which to act, you could be waiving valuable rights.

Not everyone who calls our offices ends up hiring us to represent them. In certain situations we are able to answer the injured workers' questions and give some free advice (for instance, we have a book which explains workers compensation cases available for free if you request it). In other cases, the worker realizes that they need help; the choice is yours, but it is smart to at least call a knowledgeable workers' compensation lawyer with the questions you have.

If you or a loved one suffered a job 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 Lawyers at Powell and Denny today.
