What is workers’ compensation?

Workers’ compensation provides benefits to employees injured while performing work-related duties. In Alabama, that means in most circumstances, employers or their insurance carrier will provide medical care, prescriptions, mileage reimbursement and compensation while the injured employee recovers from the injuries. If the injuries result in permanent impairment or permanent restrictions, the injured worker might be entitled to additional compensation at the end of the claim. All cases are different. If you have been injured on the job and feel you need legal advice, please contact us at the Nomberg Law Firm, 205-930-6900.

COMPASSION FOR OUR CLIENTS

We know that our clients need answers. We also know that after being injured on the job it can be a very stressful time for them. We keep these things in mind when meeting with them and throughout our representation of our clients in their cases.  Here, Bernard discusses what it is like representing people hurt in work accidents.

WHAT IS AN INDEPENDENT MEDICAL EVALUATION?

Independent Medical Evaluation (or Examination) (IME) is an examination or physical performed by a doctor, usually made at the request of the workers’ compensation carrier. The doctor performing the IME has not previously been involved in the person’s medical care. Sometimes an IME is necessary, sometimes it is not.  An IME is used sometimes to try to prove an injury or symptom is not work-related.

WHAT IS THE STATUTE OF LIMITATION FOR AN ALABAMA WORKERS’ COMPENSATION CLAIM?

For an Alabama workers’ compensation claim, there are time limitations, also known as the statute of limitations. All claims for compensation shall be barred unless a verified complaint is filed in the appropriate circuit court within two (2) years from the date of the accident. Where payments of compensation have been made, such complaint must be filed within two (2) years from the date of the last compensation payment. Otherwise, any action may be barred.

In other words, for most Alabama workers’ compensation claims, you have 2 years from the date of the accident to settle your claim or file a lawsuit.
