The Alabama Workers Compensation Act
Under the Alabama Workers’ Compensation Act, an employee who has been injured on the job does not have to prove that any one was specifically at fault in the accident, or prove negligence against his employer.
Although the law was designed to take the issue of work-related injuries out of the court system and to provide injured workers swift and sure relief for their injuries, unfortunately that is no longer the case. The cost of insurance that employers are required to carry keeps going up, and that gives employers an economic interest in denying your claim.
