There is no waiting period for workers’ compensation benefits. Medical benefits should be offered immediately. If you are unable to work according to the authorized treating physician, you will receive temporary total disability benefits after you have been off work for more than three days. If your claim is denied, you will not receive any benefits and you should contact an experienced workers’ compensation attorney to assist you. The Nomberg Law Firm has been assisting Alabama workers with workers’ compensation claims since 1967.
