How am I protected by Alabama workers’ compensation benefits?

Workers’ compensation protections are vital for injured workers and their families to be familiar with. Alabama workers’ compensation benefits can help injured workers and their families with the hard times ahead that they may experience following a workplace accident, injury or illness.

Injured workers in Alabama or those suffering from an occupational illness caused by their workplace have 2 years to make a claim for workers’ compensation benefits. There are also limits on how long disabled individuals can receive workers’ compensation benefits depending on the situation so injured workers should be familiar with how those rules impact their circumstances.

Alabama workers’ compensation benefits include benefits to help with lost wages and medical expenses, care and treatment. Workers’ compensation benefits that may be available include benefits for temporary partial disability or temporary total disability. In addition, benefits for permanent partial disability or permanent total disability may also be available to help injured workers. Workers’ compensation benefits can help with a variety of situations and aid injured workers with their everyday living expenses and costs associated with their injury.

It is essential for injured workers and their families to be familiar with the process that it takes to complete a workers’ compensation claim for damages to ensure they are in the best position possible to receive the benefits they need. These benefits are theirs to receive and they need to know how to obtain them when they have suffered harm in the workplace in an on-the-job accident or from a workplace illness.
