Workers’ Compensation Defense Lawyers in Alabama Protect Your Business
When one of your workers becomes injured or ill while in the workplace, they may be eligible for workers’ compensation. Workers in Alabama are entitled to benefits even if your company was not negligent or at fault. In fact, employees can usually recover benefits even when they were directly responsible for the accident. We work to reduce the cost of the employee’s claim by disputing the validity and severity of the injury.
Understanding defenses to workers’ comp claims
As experienced workers’ comp attorneys, we help defend businesses from employee benefits claims by demonstrating that:
- There is a non-work-related cause of the injury.
- The injury occurred while the employee was intoxicated.
- The injury was preexisting or partially preexisting.
- The actual cause of the injury was horseplay.
- The extent of the injury is overstated.
- The injury does not exist at all.
We are resolved to defend your company vigorously in settlement negotiations and in litigation.
Using experts to bolster your defense
Donald, Randall & Donald works with a variety of experts when building your defense and again during trial. Medical experts help me evaluate the true nature of the worker’s alleged injuries. Financial experts help determine what a worker’s medical care should truly cost. When a worker’s injury is covered by workers’ compensation, we use this information to help you reach a settlement that minimizes your payout to the injured worker.
Recovering from other parties
If your worker’s injury was caused by another person, company or contractor, you may be able to bring a claim against that company to compensate you for the benefits you had to pay your worker. This is known as subrogation. Our attorneys help businesses recover damages from all responsible parties.
