Dothan Alabama Workers Compensation Attorneys

If you work for a company or an individual with several employees, you’re probably covered under Workers’ Compensation insurance. Workers’ Compensation is a state-regulated insurance program that helps to compensate employees who get hurt on the job or who develop a work-related illness, such as mesothelioma. This program provides money to injured employees for expenses such as:

  •  Medical bills
  • Medications
  • Physical Rehabilitation
  • Occupational Rehabilitation
  • Lost wages
  • Funeral expenses in the case of wrongful death

Workers’ Compensation benefits vary from state to state.  The Dothan, Alabama workers’ compensation attorneys at Jacoby & Meyers know the laws, and we can explain your rights to you if you’ve been hurt on the job. It’s important that you act quickly, because there’s a limited amount of time for you to file for benefits.

In most states, employers are required to provide workers’ compensation benefits for any employee who is injured on the job or who is made sick due to a work-related condition.  You’ll have to report your injury or condition to your employer, and then they’ll have to submit a workers’ compensation claim to their insurance company.  If the insurance company doesn’t contest the claim, you’ll eventually receive benefits.

However, if you file for benefits without the help of an attorney, your chances of being denied benefits are very high. The Workers’ Compensation program has five levels (or stages), that you must meet and your claim can get denied at any of those levels.  Your chances of getting approved will be much better if you have an experienced workers’ compensation attorney working for you, such as the ones at Jacoby & Meyers.

If you have been injured in a work-related accident, please contact a Jacoby & Meyers Dothan, Alabama workers’ compensation attorney now to schedule your free initial consultation.
