Do I Have a Case?

If you were hurt during the normal course of your work duties, you probably have a case to receive workers’ comp benefits. There are a few things we need to consider when we review your case.

We’ve seen just about every type of work injury imaginable. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Work-related illnesses
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome and other repeat-motion injuries
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Lost limbs
  • Traumatic brain injuries

Workers’ comp covers every type of accident as long as it happened during normal work duties. It could be the result of repetitive motion over time, exposure, or a singular accident. Here are some of the more common causes of accidents we see:

  • Slip and fall
  • Heavy equipment
  • Car accident
  • Chemical exposure
  • Overexertion
  • Repetitive motions
  • Object striking or falling
  • And other incidents

The statute of limitations determines whether you’re within the time limit to seek benefits. In Alabama, you must file your claim within two years of the injury or the last date of compensation payment. Meeting these deadlines can seem overwhelming, but don’t worry! The Long Brothers are here to guide you through the process.

Frequently Asked Questions

Legally, you are not required to have a workers’ comp attorney. However, you might be surprised by how many claims are denied by overzealous insurers trying to stop fraud. If this happens to you, you need an attorney like one of our Mobile, AL, workers’ comp lawyers to help you fight the denial and get the benefits you deserve.

You won’t have to pay any fees out of pocket for your workers’ comp attorney. Your case review is completely free and has no obligation. We can even review your case from the comfort of your living room! Then, when you choose to work with us, you won’t owe a dime unless you get your benefits. There’s nothing to lose and benefits to gain by giving us a call and getting your free case review today.

At first, yes, you have to see a doctor on the list provided by your boss’s insurance company. You can, however, switch to your regular doctor later for treatment. Your workers’ comp attorney can also provide good options for specialists and second opinions if you need them.

There are many reasons why claims are denied in Alabama. The insurance company may feel that your injury doesn’t limit your work, or they might think you’re not as injured as you claim. Tragically, it’s surprising how often legitimate claims are denied. But, your lawyer can help you make an appeal and give you another chance at getting benefits.

If your claim was denied, it’s not the end of the road. Your lawyer can help you take the right steps to challenge the denial, which can include filing a civil lawsuit in the Alabama District Courts. This process can be complex and may take a while. You will need to be patient, but if your claim is finally accepted, you can be eligible for benefits backdated to the injury date.

 

Workers’ comp is different from other injury cases. It’s a “no-fault insurance.” That means that you’re covered regardless of who caused the accident, so long as you were within your normal duties. If, on the other hand, something happened due to someone else’s gross negligence and you got seriously injured, you may be able to file a personal injury claim against them. This can result in a higher settlement, but it’s very rare that this happens. If you think this may apply, ask your attorney for more information.

Generally, no, you can’t sue your boss if you got hurt at work. When you accept a job that is covered by workers’ comp, you forgo your right to sue for damages. There are exceptions to every rule, but these are extremely rare and unlikely. Your Mobile, AL, workers’ comp lawyer will be sure to let you know if you qualify as an exception.
