Workplace accidents occur everyday. They may result from reckless or negligent behavior, intentional misconduct, unsafe workplace conditions, or repetitive traumatic injuries. We understand that some of these accidents result from conditions outside the employee’s control and they may be eligible for workers’ compensation. Our firm specializes in representing our clients in the following instances: Catastrophic Workplace Injuries, Construction Site Accidents, Slip and Fall Accidents, Fatal Workplace Accidents and Workers’ Compensation Appeal.
Catastrophic Workplace Injuries
A catastrophic injury is one that causes permanent and/or debilitating damage to the individual, such as spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, severe burns, and accidental amputations.
Construction Site Accidents
With the existence of uneven surfaces, heavy objects being transported on the ground and overhead, dangerous walkways, and the extensive use of heavy machinery, construction site accidents occur often. Numerous safety rules and regulations are put in place in an effort to prevent such injuries, many of which are catastrophic in nature. However, even watchful and cautious employees can be victims of construction accidents. If the employee is not at fault for causing the accident, we can help Alabama employees file for workers' compensation and get the compensation they need to cover expensive medical treatments.
Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip and Fall accidents are caused by poorly maintained walkways and unsafe work conditions. Whatever the severity of the injury may be, a slip and fall accident victim should speak with a workers’ compensation attorney right away to fight for maximum compensation. As long as he or she did not cause their accident through recklessness or intentional action, every employee has the right to file a workers’ compensation claim after being injured on the job.
Fatal Workplace Accidents
Family and friends of an employee who has been killed in a workplace accident may be able to fight for compensation. We understand nothing can ever truly recompense for the loss of a loved one. However, death benefits can help offset the financial stress involved with their passing. These benefits are paid in a weekly payment and are based off of a percentage of the deceased employee’s wages. The burial of the employee is often covered by these benefits, as well. If you have lost a loved one in a workplace accident, don’t delay in getting legal help and file for these benefits before it is too late.

Workers’ Compensation Appeal
If your workers' compensation claim has been denied, you have the right to fight the denial by filing an appeal and requesting a hearing. We encourage you to work with a workers’ compensation attorney during this process.
