Industrial Accident Attorneys in Birmingham
Alabama Personal Injury Attorneys for Injured Workers’ Rights
Alabama is home to many thriving industries. Men and women across our state work in the steel and iron industries. Others work on factory lines for companies such as Honda, Hyundai, Mercedes or Toyota. Still, others work in textile mills, quarries, coal mines and on our highway systems. Hundreds of thousands of people across Alabama make a living working in industrial settings. When accidents happen in these environments, the injuries can be very severe.
If you have been injured at work, you are entitled at a minimum to workers’ compensation benefits. Depending on the cause of your accident, you could receive additional money damages in a personal injury lawsuit. It is important to talk to a lawyer as soon as possible after a serious workplace injury. The longer you wait, the more difficult it will be to achieve a successful result in your case.

Finding Every Potential Source of Compensation
Injured workers can receive workers’ compensation without having to prove that anyone was at fault. Workers’ compensation, however, only covers your medical expenses and a portion of your past, present and future lost wages. If someone other than your employer was at fault for your injuries, you can get full compensation in a personal injury claim against the responsible party.
For instance, if your injuries were caused by a defectively designed or manufactured product, our law firm will bring a lawsuit against the company that designed or manufactured the product. In some cases, maintenance crews may have failed to maintain or fix a machine, which later resulted in injury. In other cases, safety guards may have been removed or altered to speed up production. In other cases, simple negligence by someone other than your employer can contribute to your injury. In these cases, it may be possible to bring suit against your employer and other responsible parties. Whatever the circumstances, our law firm will fully investigate your case to ensure you receive compensation from every party.
