Video FAQ

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.
