Anniston is the site of Fort McClellan, which formerly housed various military functions, was decommissioned in the 1990s, but is currently home to the Alabama National Guard training center. Other portions of the fort were set aside for a national wildlife refuge and for a "live agent" training center for emergency response providers.
If you or a family member has been injured or killed in a workplace incident in Anniston, or anywhere in Calhoun County, trust the Anniston workers' compensation attorneys at Hollis, Wright & Clay, P.C. to handle the complex and challenging process of pursuing workers' compensation benefits that you are entitled to receive under Alabama law. Getting injured on the job will place great financial strain and stress on you and your family. While you are entitled to be paid while you are off work, you will only receive 2/3 of your average weekly wages and even those payments will cease once you recover even if you can't return to work. Thus, individuals, like most people, that require all of their normal pay to meet their monthly household debt obligations can find themselves in a financially perilous situation upon sustaining an on-the-job injury.
Our attorneys have represented injured individuals in workers' compensation cases all over the state and understand the intricacies of the law. Upon being injured at work, you are entitled to immediate and specific benefits. However, if you don't understand exactly to what you are entitled to receive, then it is likely that you will lose out on these benefits. Moreover, without an attorney by your side fighting for these benefits, it is likely that the workers' compensation insurance company will attempt to take advantage of your lack of knowledge by not having an attorney working for you and protecting your workers' compensation rights.
Call us as soon as you can after your on-the-job injury to protect your rights. Our attorneys will go to work right away on your case and help you find the best doctor to treat your injuries. In many cases, you have to use specific doctors under the law, but there are exceptions that allow you to choose your own doctor. You can reach us here
