Workers’ Compensation

If you were injured on the job, you are entitled to fair compensation for your injuries and financial strain. All employers in Alabama are required to carry workers' compensation insurance. As an injured worker, you are entitled to receive lost wages and necessary medical treatment, including therapy, prescriptions, and any medical supplies you may require to treat your injury. If you are temporarily disabled due to an on-the-job injury, you are entitled to receive disability payments. If you are left with any permanent disability, you are also entitled to compensation.

Workplace injuries may include fractures, lost limbs, lacerations, head injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, repetitive stress injuries, and injuries caused by other employees or equipment.
