Alabama Compensation Claims Attorney
Most workers injured on the job in Alabama are entitled to file a claim for medical costs, lost earnings and other financial damages through the state's workers' compensation insurance system. Many injured workers and their families are disappointed to learn, however, that workers' comp benefits only cover a percentage of the full extent of their financial losses, without recourse for seeking further compensation from their employer.
What Is a Third-Party Lawsuit?
Workplace accidents don't just happen. There is almost always a factor that led to the accident and injury. Some factors include a defective or dangerous industrial product; a lack of proper safety warning; misconduct on the part of another worker; or general unsafe working conditions on the job site. The law allows injured workers and their families to seek money damages from the negligent party or parties responsible for the accident. These types of lawsuits are referred to as third-party claims.
At the Drake Law Firm, in Birmingham, Alabama, we help injured workers and their families recover the full and fair financial compensation they are entitled to after an injury. Our Alabama job injury lawyers have a strong record of recovering money damages in third-party lawsuit settlements and jury verdicts against negligent parties, such as:
