For workers’ compensation in Alabama, can I recover for my pain and suffering, loss of consortium, and emotional distress?

The Alabama Workers’ Compensation Act does not allow for compensation to be paid for pain and suffering, loss of consortium and emotional distress. However, compensation is based upon physical impairment and vocational loss. If you are injured at work by a third-party or co-employee, you may be entitled to damages based upon pain and suffering and mental anguish. To discuss your rights pursuant to the Alabama Workers’ Compensation Act, contact an attorney with the Nomberg Law Firm today. (205) 930-6900
