Huntsville Workers Compensation Lawyers
Huntsville Workers Compensation Lawyers: Do I need a Lawyer: What are My Rights? Every day in Alabama, someone suffers some type of work injury; while most of the incidents are minor in nature and require only one or two visits to the workers’ compensation physician, it is not always easy to tell whether an injury is merely a sprained muscle or something more serious. Most injured workers do not know much about Alabama’s Workers Compensation system and daily we receive calls from injured workers with a variety of questions. One of the questions we hear a lot is do they really need a lawyer.
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 had to say on the subject; “…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 decides that they need help; the choice is yours; it is not strictly necessary that you have any attorney representing your interests, but it is smart to at least call a knowledgeable workers’ compensation lawyer with the questions you have. Rest assured that workers compensation has attorneys they can talk to try to figure out how to avoid liability.
If you work in the Metro Huntsville region*-or anywhere in the North Alabama and Tennessee Valley area- you have suffered a job injury and you have questions about your rights under the Alabama Workers Compensation system, please do not hesitate to contact and speak with one of the experienced Huntsville Job Injury attorneys at POWELL AND DENNY and schedule a free consultation and let us see if we can help.
