Workers’ Compensation

Most people spend the majority of their waking hours on the job and, consequently, most injuries occur at work.  If you have been injured at work your accident is most likely covered by state workers’ compensation laws.  However, in some circumstances your injury may be covered by the Longshore & Harbor Workers Compensation Act or another set of laws.  At DSH we handle workplace injuries throughout Alabama and Mississippi. 

Workers’ compensation laws can be complicated.  Insurance companies have adjusters and lawyers working hard to stop workers from getting compensated for their injuries.  At DSH settlement of a workers’ compensation case is in our client’s best interests only if it is fair and just.  Often, insurance companies and vindictive employers have no desire to be fair with working folks.  At DSH we find that taking employers to trial is the best way to get the compensation our clients deserve.  We stand ready to try workers’ compensation cases throughout Alabama and Mississippi – and the insurance companies know it.

These recoveries and testimonials are not an indication of future results. Every case is different, and regardless of what friends, family, or other individuals may say about what a case is worth, each case must be evaluated on its own facts and circumstances as they apply to the law. The valuation of a case depends on the facts, the injuries, the jurisdiction, the venue, the witnesses, the parties, and the testimony, among other factors. Furthermore, no representation is made that the quality of the legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers
