Are You Eligible for Workers’ Compensation in Alabama?

Every injury and workers’ compensation case is unique. Generally, a workers’ compensation case involves an injury that occurred on the job. Let’s take a glance at some of the common factors we look at when working with our workers’ comp clients to help you determine your next best steps.

These are some of the common workplace accidents we’ve helped our clients recover compensation for:

  • Slips, trips, and falls
  • Falling objects
  • Contact with sharp objects
  • Repetitive motion or overexertion
  • Vehicle accidents
  • Electrical hazards

This list is not exhaustive. Remember, workers’ compensation insurance is a no-fault form of insurance. In most cases, you can still receive compensation even if the accident was your fault. However, there are exceptions to workers’ compensation, and our lawyers can guide you on the specific laws that apply to your situation.

If you were seriously harmed in a work accident, you likely are eligible for workers’ comp. Some of the most common injuries we see in workers’ comp cases are:

  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Repetitive motion or overexertion injuries (e.g. carpal tunnel syndrome, sprains, strains, tendonitis)
  • Electrocution
  • Burn injuries (from fires or chemicals)
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Amputations
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Blindness or deafness

Each state has a strict time limit on injured workers seeking compensation, called a statute of limitations. In Alabama, you have only 5 days to report the accident to your employer, and the time frame to file a claim is 2 years from the date of injury. 

There can be exceptions to this timeline based on the unique circumstances of your case. That’s why it’s important to let an experienced Montgomery workers’ comp attorney help you seek the compensation you deserve while you focus on recovering. Those Thumbs Up Guys® can take care of everything on your behalf, ensuring you don’t miss your window for the benefits you’re entitled to receive.

What Do Workers’ Comp Benefits Cover?

Workers’ compensation benefits in Alabama may account for a wide range of losses, depending on how severe the injuries were and what kind of care is required for the injured person in the future. These benefits typically fall under three categories: medical, disability, and death benefits.

Medical Benefits

Workers’ compensation insurance provides coverage for medical expenses due to a workplace injury or illness. This coverage may include surgeries, emergency room visits, medications, physical or occupational therapy, and more.

Disability Benefits

Some workplace injuries can lead to temporary or permanent disability. In Alabama workers’ comp claims, different disability benefits are offered: temporary total disability (TTD) has no time limit, temporary partial disability (TPD) is capped at 300 weeks, permanent partial disability (PPD) is limited to 300 weeks, and permanent total disability (PTD) has no time restriction. These benefits encompass medical costs and provide wage compensation based on disability level.

Death Benefits

In the case of a workplace injury or illness that results in death, the family may be entitled to a funeral expense benefit and a percentage of the deceased workers’ wages. Death benefits in a workers’ comp claim may not exceed 500 weeks in Alabama.

Alabama Workers’ Compensation FAQs

Get the answers to the most commonly asked questions about workers’ compensation in Montgomery, Alabama.

With temporary disability or temporary partial disability in Alabama, there is a waiting period to receive benefits. The injured worker will not receive compensation for the first three days following the disability unless the employer is aware of the injury. If the disability continues over 21 days, compensation for those first three days will be added to the total after the 21 days.

Employers supply workers’ compensation benefits through state-funded programs or private insurance. Employees are never responsible for paying workers’ compensation benefits.

Employees receiving workers’ compensation benefits are not automatically ineligible for other programs. Still, these benefits may be affected by the workers’ compensation benefits.
