Pursuing All Sources Of Compensation
Our law firm is prepared to help injured workers pursue all avenues of compensation, including:
Workers' compensation: We can help you fight for the medical, wage loss and permanent disability benefits offered under workers' compensation law. If your claim is denied, we can represent you in all Circuit Courts throughout Alabama.
Personal injury: If your injury was caused by a negligent third party (a third-party contractor, co-employee or equipment manufacturer, for instance), you may pursue a third-party personal injury claim. Alabama law allows you to pursue compensation for pain and suffering, and other elements not covered under workers' compensation law.
Wrongful termination: Alabama employers are not allowed to fire employees solely for pursuing a workers' compensation claim. If your employer fired you because you suffered a workplace injury, our law firm can represent you in a wrongful termination suit referred to as a retaliatory discharge action.
Whatever the circumstances of your accident, it is important to have strong legal representation. Attorney Thomas P. Melton has represented numerous injured workers throughout Alabama and can help you pursue all sources of compensation.
