Workers’ Compensation

Workers’ Compensation Lawyer Represents Employees in Alabama

Skilled attorney protecting injured workers

When you become injured or ill while you are at work, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation. This is true even if the injury or illness occurred outside of your normal job functions. You are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits even in the absence of your employer’s fault or negligence. In fact, even if the injury was your fault, you may still be eligible for compensation.

John G. Scherf, IV helps employees get fair compensation for injuries and illnesses sustained in the workplace. I help workers seek payment for their workers’ comp claims, including:

  • Compensation for permanent disability
  • Dependents’ recovery for a worker’s death
  • Lost wages or salary
  • Rehabilitation expenses
  • Retraining costs

I help you pursue any benefits you are entitled to under the law.

Waiving workers’ compensation

Accepting workers’ compensation limits your rights to other remedies against a negligent employer. A personal injury claim can include compensation for general damages and pain and suffering, whereas a workers’ comp claim cannot. I am skilled at analyzing whether you should waive your workers’ comp claim and seek recovery for negligence in civil court, and whether you should also pursue a negligent third party.

Appealing workers’ compensation decisions

If your claim is denied, you have a limited time to appeal the decision. I can help you successfully maneuver through the complex bureaucratic process of appealing to the Alabama workers’ compensation board.
