Huntsville Workers Compensation Lawyers
Huntsville Workers Compensation Lawyers: What is my case worth? What are My Rights? One of the first questions many injured workers ask us when discussing their Alabama workers’ compensation claim is how much are they entitled to receive. This is a more complicated question than most people realize. In order to answer this question, one must be able to determine a worker’s degree of disability. For example, a person who has no lingering effects from a job injury and returns to work making the same money they were beforehand may be entitled to little in terms of compensation. Conversely, a person who underwent several surgeries and now suffers with various physical limitations may be entitled to over $100,000-with lifetime medical benefits. Before any calculation of the potential value of your workers’ compensation claim can be made, your permanent physical impairment and limitations has to be known, and this is not known until you have reached maximum medical improvement (for more information on mmi-please consult our blogs on this subject).
Usually one of the worst ways to judge the value of your Alabama workers’ compensation claim is by listening to a friend’s story about how they got X amount of dollars for an injury similar to your work injury. Alabama workers’ compensation claims are different from other type of personal injury actions as the amount of money paid is based on factors that are radically different from those in other types of cases, and your age, education, your average weekly wage and body part injured are major issues which vary from person to person. There are a number of caps and deductions that are part of the law that limit the recovery of an injured worker.
