Alabama Workers’ Compensation Law Firm

Committed to the workers of Alabama

If you have been injured on the job in Alabama, you are automatically entitled to receive workers’ compensation benefits from your employer. These benefits help workers pay their bills while recovering from their injuries. However, many employers and insurance companies try to stop workers from collecting the benefits that they deserve under the law.

Do not let this happen to you. The attorneys at McPhillips Shinbaum, LLP in Montgomery are devoted to helping the workers of Alabama receive the benefits they need after they have been injured. Our dedicated attorneys help our clients file for workers’ compensation benefits and provide aggressive representation in court if their coverage has been denied.

What you need to know about workers’ compensation

If you have been injured on the job, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits in Alabama as long as your employer has five or more employees. Our attorneys help clients file workers’ compensation claims with their employers in a timely fashion. These claims encompass all types of injuries suffered on the job, including:

  • Broken and fractured bones
  • Back problems and pain
  • Knee injuries
  • Wrist injuries
  • Heart attacks
  • Mesothelioma
  • Severe burns
  • Shoulder pain
  • Neck pain
  • Chronic headaches
  • Lung disease
  • Accidents resulting in death

Workers’ compensation benefits are calculated by the level of impairment your injury has had on your ability to work. Depending on the nature of your injury, you may be entitled to partial disability benefits or permanent and total disability benefits. Workers’ compensation law also provides families with death benefits in the event of their loved one passing away in a workplace accident. These benefits are intended to cover all necessary and reasonable medical expenses for the duration of your injury.

Our attorneys work personally with clients to determine the extent of your disability when filing your claim. They take all factors into account, including your physical impairment, future restrictions on your ability to work and the financial needs of your family. Our lawyers make sure that your claim is filed in a timely, detailed and efficient manner.
