WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Need an update on the latest developments in Alabama Worker’s Compensation? Join us on April 24 for a one-hour webinar covering all you need to know in 2019.
In a case of first impression, an employee cut his leg on a job site and was involved in an automobile accident on the way to get treatment. Were the injuries suffered in the auto accident compensable?
Busy attorneys and employers don’t have time to read all the workers’ compensation cases handed down by the Alabama Supreme Court and the Alabama Court of Civil Appeals.
