How much Money am I entitled to in my Alabama Workers Compensation Claim?

How much Money am I entitled to in my Alabama Workers Compensation Claim?

A question we are often asked by an injured worker is how much money will I receive as a result of my job injury.  I totally understand the question, but the question is one which we are not able to readily answer because every case-just like every client-is unique.  For instance, I have a B.A. and a Juris Doctorate and the job I perform, while mentally trying at times, is not especially physical in nature.  If I were to suffer a serious injury, after surgery I would still most likely be able to return to my job and probably would be able to do so shortly after surgery.  However, for a client who is 47 years old, who only has a limited education and has only used their body to provide for their family in the jobs they perform, the same injury may be disabling.  One client may recover and do well, while another may have chronic pain or suffer from depression or anxiety following their injury.  We were all created uniquely, and how an injury affects us all is also unique.

If anyone tells you what your case is worth shortly after you suffered a work injury, they are either Nostradamus or telling you what you want to hear in order to convince you to hire them.  At Powell and Denny, we want to be honest and upfront with a potential client.  One of the worst things you can do as a lawyer is get your client’s expectations raised only to have to let them down later when you tell them what amount in monetary compensation they are actually entitled to receive.  The fact is, at the onset of a claim, no one knows how well you will recover from your injury, what the permanent effects of your injury will be or what defenses the workers comp insurance carrier may make.

Speaking of the workers’ compensation insurance carrier, if you have suffered a serious job injury and the adjuster is pushing you to settle, it is worth the time for you to at least call an experienced Alabama workers compensation attorney and let them take a look at your case.  One of the worst ways I can imagine figuring out how much you are legally entitled to receive for your Alabama workers compensation claim is to ask the adjuster representing the insurance carrier who will have to pay you.  Additionally, the language contained in any settlement petition is extremely important, as certain terms and phrases could waive your right to future vocational benefits and/or the right to pursue a wrongful termination claim if you are wrongfully terminated after seeking worker compensation benefits or your right to lifetime future medical care.

If you have suffered a work 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 Workers Comp Lawyers at Powell and Denny today to schedule a free consultation in person, or virtually through Zoom if that is more convenient.
