Alabama Workers Compensation Questions: (28) What do I do if I have to Move?
It is not uncommon for one of our workers compensation lawyers to speak with an injured worker who is concerned about their workers comp case because they have to move. Maybe their spouse has to move for their job; unfortunately, many times the injured worker has to move in with a relative given the financial strain trying to live on 2/3rds of your average weekly wage imposes.
Regardless of the reason, the injured worker is understandably concerned about how they will continue to receive their medical treatment if they have to move out of the area. We are quick to let them know that it does not matter where you move to in the United States (I haven’t had a client move to another country, so I haven’t dealt with that issue, but something should be able to be worked out in this situation as well). If you end up moving, then after being informed of where you are now residing, workers’ comp will find you a new authorized treating physician in your area.
Furthermore, regardless of where you move to, your worker compensation case will continue to be governed under the Alabama workers compensation system. Our firm has handled numerous cases where the injured worker lives in another State, or where the injured worker had moved to another State. We continue to pursue your case here, while you work on getting better and starting your new life. With telephones, faxes and the internet, it is easy to keep in contact.
