The Alabama Workers’ Compensation Act provides statutory defenses to claims based on willful misconduct. These defenses can lead to the absolute bar of certain benefits under the Act. Medical care and weekly compensation payments can be denied if the injured worker is found to have violated written safety rules, or test positive for a banned substance and this condition proximately causes the accident and injury.
