Workers’ compensation protections for Alabama workers

Workers’ compensation benefits stand at the ready as an important protection for injured workers in Alabama. Because of how important workers’ compensation benefits can be to help get injured workers back on their feet and to help with their medical care and lost earnings, it is helpful for injured workers to fully understand these benefits and how to access them.

Workers’ compensation benefits in Alabama can help injured workers pay for the cost of the medical care and treatment they need to recover from injuries suffered on the job. Workers’ compensation benefits also help when an injured worker in Alabama misses out on wages because they are unable to work because of a workplace injury or workplace illness. Injured workers can receive workers’ compensation benefits for temporary total disability; temporary partial disability; permanent partial disability; or permanent total disability depending on the circumstances.

Because there are time limits associated with receipt of benefits, as well as time limits associated with filing a claim for workers’ compensation benefits, which is two years, it is essential for injured workers and their families to be familiar with their legal rights and protections. It is also important for injured workers to be familiar with who workers’ compensation benefits apply to and the application process so they can receive the benefits they need when they need them.

Workers’ compensation benefits can be a lifeline for injured workers who need help with everyday expenses and supporting their families following a workplace injury. It is vital for injured workers to know how to fight for these benefits they need and deserve.
