Workers' Compensation Claims in Birmingham, AL

Helping Injured Workers Get Back on Their Feet

Suffering an on-the-job injury can be one of the most devastating events in a person's life. Lost time from work, medical bills, prescription costs, and permanent impairment are all too often unfortunate realities when a work injury takes place.

With nearly three decades of combined experience handling workers' compensation cases, the attorneys at Swiney & Bellenger have the knowledge, skill, and determination to handle your workers' compensation case no matter the circumstances. We have handled all aspects of workers' compensation cases from the initial injury through the often difficult claims and litigation processes to a trial before an Alabama circuit court judge.

Contact us by calling (205) 588-4652. We are eager to serve you.

Guiding You toward a Positive Resolution

When you are hurt on the job, there are a number of steps that need to be taken to ensure that you are taken care of both medically and financially. It is our job to help you avoid the pitfalls that can lengthen the time it takes to resolve your case or destroy it altogether. We also work hard to help you receive maximum compensation so that you can maintain a comfortable life after your injury.

The benefits you could receive through a workers’ compensation claim include:

  • Permanent total disability: Payment for lifelong injuries that leave you fully disabled
  • Permanent partial disability: Payment for lifelong injuries that leave you partially disabled
  • Temporary total disability: Payment for a temporary injury that leaves you fully disabled for a period of time
  • Temporary partial disability: Payment for a temporary injury that leaves you only partially disabled for a period of time
  • Medical benefits: Coverage for necessary and authorized medical treatment
  • Rehabilitation: If your injury prevents you from returning to your old job, workers’ compensation can cover costs of finding and training for a new job
  • Mileage: Payment for mileage used traveling to and from medical appointments

With a thorough and experienced attorney on your side, you have a better chance of obtaining comprehensive benefits. When asked why someone would need to retain a lawyer after getting hurt at work, we often tell our clients that your employer or its insurance carrier handles these cases every day and you do not: Hiring an attorney simply levels the playing field.
