Workers’ compensation was designed to pay workers for their injuries on the job without determining who was at fault. This situation is no longer the case. The employer pays a great deal of money for their premiums and they will attempt to limit any payouts on their policy. Denying workers’ compensation claims can lead to legal action in court which requires Birmingham’s best attorneys to win for you.

When you have been injured on the job you should not be afraid to report to your employer that you’ve been hurt. It is important to seek medical care immediately. It is important that you file the claim in writing. When you wait for several hours or a day or two, your employer can claim you did not become injured on the job. Even if your injury is minor, it is important to report it in case it turns into a major problem. Your employer is not required to pay your wages until they are notified of your injury.
