Employers are accountable to maintain a safe work environment. If you are suffering injuries from a work-related accident, your employer is responsible to cover your medical needs, rehabilitation costs and lost wages through workers’ compensation.
At Powell & Denny, P.C., we are committed to pursuing justice for injured workers and their families. We invest substantial resources to determine the cause of catastrophic work-related accidents involving electrocution, scaffolding collapses, ladder defects and other life-threatening factors. We are prepared to pursue compensation above and beyond workers’ compensation, if a third party such as a manufacturer or a subcontractor was negligent.

Handling Workplace Accident Claims for More Than 50 Years Combined
Insurance companies are often flooded with personal injury and workers’ compensation claims. At Powell & Denny, P.C., we want our clients’ story to stand out from the masses. The attorneys at our law firm illustrate our clients as individuals rather than as another claim number. Our detailed focus helps us pursue personal injury and workers’ compensation claims, involving:
- Ladder falls and scaffolding accidents
- Roof fall accidents, crane accidents and forklift accidents

- Asbestos and mesothelioma exposure
- Commercial truck accidents and coal truck accidents
- Slip-and-fall accidents in warehouses and grocery stores

Determining the Cause of Work-Related Accidents
At Powell & Denny, P.C., we focus on proving fault through incorporating as many facts as possible to demonstrate the cause of catastrophic forklift accidents, crane accidents, press accidents and other work-related accidents. Part of our work includes interviewing key witnesses to help us reconstruct the series of events minutes before fatal and life-threatening accidents.
When appropriate, we also consult safety experts in an effort to determine if an equipment failure, lack of maintenance or another factor caused the accident. Our legal team will aggressively pursue a personal injury claim if a third party is liable.
Seeking Maximum Compensation in Workplace Accidents
Powell & Denny has helped hundreds of people just like you obtain the financial resources they need and have earned. We will consult your doctor to determine the extent of your medical condition, possibly involving shoulder injuries, neck and back pain, or even traumatic brain injuries. We will work with industry experts to determine the medical care and service you will need. If a third party is liable, we will pursue a maximum recovery through a personal injury lawsuit.
We will also identify the cause or causes of the accident very early in the process. If your injury was caused by a contractor, subcontractor or third party, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering, in addition to that for your financial losses. In this situation, we will coordinate both your workers’ compensation claim and third-party claim, in order to maximize the total compensation you receive.
Some attorneys — who specialize in just workers’ compensation or just personal injury cases — may leave some money on the table. Even worse, being unfamiliar with the differences and complex interplay between these types of claims, they may jeopardize your ability to make both types of claims.
Our firm’s attorneys will also advocate your right to recover damages under Alabama’s workers’ compensation system. We have the skills and tenacity to help preserve justice.
