Workman’s Compensation and Health Issues



If you’re an employee who needs to file a claim with your employer directly, or through your Human Resources department, you can count on one thing for certain: Employees do receive a range of benefits under the state’s workmen compensation law.

Employers too receive a layer of protection from any lawsuit arising out of an injured employee seeking money damages for pain and suffering and mental anguish.

As an employee who was injured on the job, or contracted some form of occupational disease, it’s imperative that the employer is given notification promptly, who will then go over options via an assigned physician.

While it may seem unnecessary at the time for a workman’s compensation claimant to spell out precisely what is transpiring with them after a workplace incident, the employer must refer to a list of Alabama Injury Codes in order to make complete the claim—there are almost one hundred codes, from “amputation” to “repetitive-motion, carpel tunnel syndrome.”

Making sure proper payments are being made to claimants is what the Alabama’s Workers’ Compensation Division is all about. Their tasks include:

Overseeing Payments

Undergoing any injury on the job, or work-related illness, is enough stress for an employee to handle. They don’t need the added worries of making sure they’re receiving the right medical attention and payments are coming in to pay the medical bills for them, or their dependents if needed.

Self-insured Employers

A set of regulations exist for companies who have elected to “self-insure” for their Worker’s Compensation coverage. The Division makes sure that the company is financially capable to provide the coverage for its employees.

At times, an employee may not feel their case is being attended to properly by their employer. That’s when it makes sense to contact us. We’ll make sure you’re receiving fair consideration for your injury, or health issues related to the accident.
