Establishing Eligibility for Benefits

Many people in Alabama may suffer back or neck injuries on the job. For example, a grocery store clerk may slip and fall in a slick aisle, or a warehouse worker may suffer a forklift accident. These injuries can be severe and often limit a person’s ability to return to work. When this happens, workers’ compensation benefits play a critical role in reducing the financial impact on the employee and their family.

Workers’ compensation is essentially an insurance system. Employers typically pay into a large reservoir of money, which is then available to employees who are injured on the job. State law requires employers with five or more workers to offer these benefits. They typically include money for medical bills and some lost wages.

To be eligible for benefits, you must show that the back or neck injury happened in the course of your job. This means that the accident happened at a place where you could reasonably have expected to be as part of the job and that you were performing job or incidental duties when it happened. A pizza delivery driver, for example, would likely be entitled to benefits for injuries sustained in a car accident while he is directly returning to the store from a delivery. If he takes the long way back so that he can pick up his daughter at school, on the other hand, the situation is a little more complicated.

Fighting Hard on Your Behalf

One of the most common defenses that employers or insurers may raise when trying to avoid paying benefits is that the worker’s injuries were the result of a pre-existing condition. In other words, the employer may say that you should not receive benefits after a car accident on the job because you already had chronic back and neck pain before the crash.

This means that a person seeking benefits needs to gather medical documentation and other evidence to clearly show that any injuries were caused at least in part by the workplace accident. Our experienced workers’ compensation lawyer in Birmingham can help compile this evidence and present it in the strongest possible manner.

With over a decade of experience helping injured employees navigate the benefits process, Ingram Law is ready to help you overcome your struggle. We proudly serve people throughout Jefferson County and Alabama.

      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.
