Alabama personal injury law can be very complicated and many people do not understand the wide range of assistance they can obtain from an attorney. In addition to medical malpractice and defective product claims, there are other areas of personal injury law where a lawyer can be of assistance. Here are some of the common reasons for seeking help.
Workman’s Compensation – When you are injured at work, you are entitled to benefits through worker’s compensation. However, these benefits are not automatic, you will have to file a claim. While your employer is obligated under the law to provide for medical care and time lost from work, there are other benefits you may be entitled to. Unfortunately, without the assistance of a personal injury attorney, you may lose out on benefits you are entitled to. While Worker’s Compensation laws are a separate classification, most personal injury attorneys handle these claims as well.
18 Wheeler Accidents – When you are involved in an accident involving an 18-wheeler, the injuries are typically greater than they are versus an automobile accident. Unfortunately, some of these accidents also result in very serious injuries including paralysis or even death. When you or a family member is involved in an accident with an 18-wheeler, it is imperative to contact a personal injury attorney for help.
Auto Accidents – Nearly all automobile accidents are caused by some type of negligence. When you’ve been involved in an accident, you are going to face medical bills and potentially a loss of wages while you recover. These expenses should not be your burden alone, they should be paid by the negligent driver. An attorney can help you get the compensation you are entitled to.
