Workers' Compensation

Birmingham Workers' Compensation Attorney

Seek Benefits after a Workplace Accident in Jefferson County

Anyone who is injured on the job in the State of Alabama is entitled to file a workers’ compensation claim. Workers’ compensation benefits are based on the extent of your disability. The laws in Alabama are not favorable to the employee. If the disability is partial, you get a maximum of 300 weeks of compensation. If the disability is permanent and total, you could get benefits for life.

If you are considering filing a claim, you may be wondering:

  • If your employer can fire you or retaliate against you
  • Whether you need to hire a lawyer (especially if the company has offered to pay for your injury)
  • Whether you can afford to hire an attorney

Remember: It is against the law to retaliate or terminate an employee for filing an injury claim. Unfortunately, it is possible that some companies may try to find another reason to terminate your employment. At Ingram Law, we have represented individuals who have been wrongfully terminated for filing an injury claim.

Get started on your claim today by contacting Ingram Law at (205) 335-2640.

Why You Need an Attorney

If you were injured at work and your employer offers to pay you as settlement, they will likely want you to sign a release from any future medical costs or medical needs you may have related to an injury. The main reason to hire a Birmingham workers’ compensation attorney for your claim is that a lawyer can determine what a fair and reasonable settlement is for your injury.

Workers’ compensation benefits are based on a schedule for most injuries. The more severe the injury, the more compensation you are entitled to receive. A doctor will often provide you with an impairment rating – this is the degree of your injury and disability to your entire body. In order to receive the monetary benefits you need to recover, you will want a knowledgeable attorney on your side. At Ingram Law, we can ensure that the calculations for your benefits are correct.

You Deserve Fair Compensation

Generally, an injured party will be evaluated for a physical impairment rating and a vocational impairment rating. In Alabama, you are entitled to be compensated based on your ability to earn, not just your physical impairment rating given by the doctor. However, the insurance company may try to pay you solely based on your doctor’s physical impairment rating. That usually results in a much lower compensation settlement for you. You deserve the full amount of compensation you are legally entitled to.

If you have been injured on the job and are unable to work, please call (205) 335-2640 for an initial consultation with Ingram Law.

      Joe Ingram was the perfect attorney my wife and I needed as we faced being deposed in our ex-son-in-law’s child custody litigation.

      If you ever find yourself in need of an exceptional lawyer that goes above and beyond Joe Ingram is that person. I personally found myself calling Joe on weekends, day, night, it did not make any difference. He always made himself available. Joe worked diligently for two years on my husband’s case and through it all kept us calm with continuously assurance “it’s going to be okay”. His case did come out much better than either of us could have imagined. I cannot begin to express my gratitude and appreciation to Joe.
