Have you suffered an injury or become ill while working? If so, you may
be entitled to receive benefits under state workers' compensation
laws. Workers' compensation is a type of insurance that employers
carry in the event a worker is injured. Workers' comp provides for
medical treatment and financial assistance for income and medical expenses
related to the injury. Some of the conditions that are covered under workers'
compensation include traumatic physical injuries, repeated trauma injuries,
and occupational diseases.
Workers' compensation benefits can include:
- Lost wages
- Medical expenses
- Vocational rehabilitation
- Death benefits
In the State of Alabama, employers with more than five employees are required
to carry workers' compensation insurance. Our team at The Martin Law
Firm, LLC can help you determine whether your employer is mandated to
carry this insurance and whether you are eligible to file a claim.

What To Do After an Illness or Injury at Work
If you have been injured at work or developed a job-related occupational
disease, it is critical to notify your employer immediately, as there
are deadlines for filing a workers' comp claim. Next, you should seek
medical attention so you have medical records verifying your injuries.
Tell your doctor that the issue is job-related. Then, contact your employer's
insurance carrier and notify your employer of any medical treatment received.
Finally, contact an experienced Birmingham workers' compensation attorney
to help ensure that you receive fair compensation!
If your accident was caused by a third party, you may be able to recover
additional compensation through a
personal injury claim.
