Workplace Accidents And Paths Of Recovery
According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, the most common fatalities on the job in Alabama in 2020 involved these industries and injuries:
- Construction accidents
- Transportation-related accidents
- Contact with objects
- Violent incidents
- Falls, slips and trips
Naturally, accidents at work are not all fatal. Remedies for recovery for injured workers may include:
- Workers’ compensation claims
- Workers’ compensation appeals after claims have been denied
- Third-party liability claims against people or organizations other than employers of injured workers
Workers’ compensation is a type of insurance for injured workers that can give you access to covered medical care right away. A prompt review of the facts of your case will enable our attorneys to get your case underway.
Workers’ Compensation Appeals
You may have been hurt in a factory or warehouse, at a construction site or in another industrial or employment context. You do not have to prove that your employer was at fault to get workers’ compensation benefits.
Even if your workers’ compensation case seems straightforward, your employer or their insurer may deny or undervalue your claim, or stop payments before you are ready to return to work. You may need our attorneys’ help to appeal a denial or get past any other obstacle in your way.
Third-Party Liability Claims
At Griffith, Lowry & Meherg, we explore all options of financial recovery for our clients.
You may be able to file a third-party liability claim or lawsuit in addition to a workers’ compensation claim if any entity that is not your employer was at least partially at fault in your accident.
