The Alabama Department of Transportation recently announced that a 56 year old highway maintenance worker who slipped and fell on January 10, 2011 on U. S. Highway 43 has died. This 22 year veteran was at work when slipped and fell on the ice and broke his neck. This is a tragic occurrence but, unfortunately, not an isolated incident. On the job accidents are a daily occurrence across our country. In most cases, the victim survives. Even if the result is not death, the victim of a work related injury can leave the worker with severe, permanent injuries. Anytime a worker is injured on the job, they should immediately seek medical attention. The second call should be to an experienced, knowledgeable attorney who deals with workers compensation cases. A top notch workman’s compensation lawyer will make sure you receive the medical treatment you need and that the doctor’s bills are paid by the insurance carrier. This advocate for the injured worker will also make sure that the victim receives his or her lost wages. Once the prognosis for recovery has been ascertained, your personal injury attorney will make a claim for a permanency award from the insurance company. If you have been the victim of a job related injury, you owe it to yourself and your family to contact an attorney with the experience and compassion to bring your case to a successful conclusion.
