A Workers’ Compensation Lawyer Can Increase Your Recovery
An on-the-job injury means that you must deal with many issues simultaneously. You are hurt, you can’t work and you may be worried about reporting the injury to your employer. It is a situation that is difficult to handle on your own.
With a lawyer on your side, however, all of these problems are easier. We will help you with your injury and your employer. You don’t have to worry about anything except getting better. The attorneys at Strawn & Robertson, LLC, represent injured workers in Alabama. Because we have represented employers in the past, we understand how they operate in workers’ comp cases. You can rely on our knowledge and our commitment to your case.
Work Injuries, Workers’ Compensation And Third-Party Claims
Work injuries can be chronic or catastrophic and may include:
- Back injuries
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Joint injuries
- Broken bones
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
We also represent families that have lost a loved one to wrongful death from a work injury.
We will guide you through the workers compensation paperwork, process and hearings. Don’t be discouraged if you were initially denied; many claims are approved after we get involved and submit the necessary medical evidence.
In addition, we will seek any other damages you are entitled to from a negligent third party. This can be any party other than your employer who is at fault, including contractors, subcontractors, suppliers and manufacturers. In third-party cases, we can recover damages in addition to your workers’ comp benefits, including damages for pain and suffering.
