    This is a difficult situation. Often we have found that the doctor simply accepts what injuries the workers' compensation carrier says are or are not related without making an independent determination for themselves. This is frustrating as it plays into the carrier's desire to limit your claim and their financial exposure. I do not have enough information from just your question to say for sure that is what's going on here, but I would not be surprised. You do have a right to select a new...

    I would assume that this is a potential maritime injury claim. I would be glad to help, but your inquiry simply does not have enough information to evaluate such a complicated claim. I would strongly suggest that you speak with an attorney before having further discussions with the company. I would be glad to meet with you as our firm is located here in Mobile and we are familiar with these kinds of claims. Please feel free to contact me directly through this site. Hope to be of assistance.

    That's a very broad question. I do believe that it would be helpful to have an attorney actually review this doctor's medical records and see what he is putting in there about your injury and any limitations. Otherwise, I agree with some of the other answers, if you are dissatisfied with your doctor and feel that he is returning you to work too soon, you can request another doctor under the law. I would suggest that you contact a local workers' comp attorney to do these things for you. Keep in...

    It sounds as though you may have had multiple injuries, one of them to your back? There are a number of reasons under the Alabama Workers' Compensation Act that an employer may try to avoid covering a body as a whole injury to the back. You may need to get the assistance of an attorney and possibly file suit to get this claim on track if they are denying the back. An attorney would have to evaluate all of the evidence to determine whether you would be successful. Also, there could be time...

    Its hard to answer a question about case value without knowing more details. For example, I would like to know if the doctor has assigned you a permanent impairment rating or any restrictions. I would also like to know what kind of work you do and whether this injury will affect your ability to return to work. Also, I would like to know if this settlement offer includes future medical benefits or not. I would suggest that you review it with a workers' compensation attorney. Our firm and most...

    I agree that your first step would be to contact the law firm that handled your father's claim and that is distributing the money. Otherwise, both a surviving spouse and a child have certain inheritance rights under the law relating to intestate estates in Alabama.

    Looks like your step-dad died intestate. It is likely, however, that your mother, his spouse, would inherit everything in his estate if he had no children. With regard to your mother, her will would dictate. The trailer and mortgage pose a problem that will likely take some work and time to sort out. It should, however, be doable. Generally, the mortgage company is going to happy if they are paid from the sale, but the buyer is going to want good title. I would suggest that you contact an...

    That seems unusual that he would have such a device implanted, but not hooked up. An attorney would have to know more information to consider whether there was any medical negligence involved, what his damages would be and whether a lawsuit would be appropriate. I would suggest that you promptly contact a local attorney that handles medical malpractice claims. Please keep in mind that there are time limits that apply to these kinds of claims.
