The first thing you need to do is retain a Workers' Compensation attorney. You will need an attorney in Alabama who can help maximize the value of your claim and help you obtain benefits you are entitled to. Make sure your attorney specifically practices Workers' Compensation.
Where I practice, Workers' Compensation is bad. Where you are it is most likely bad as well. That's the national trend.See question

They don't have to pay for your first 3 days off. That's your responsibility.
If it's beyond that, if your doctor takes you off work you should be getting TD. If you are "Permanent and Stationary", then TD is not owed. You need to get an attorney who can maximize the value of your claim and help you obtain benefits you are owed.See question
