Am I Required to Give my Employer Notice of the Accident?

Yes. You are absolutely required to provide your employer with notice of the accident. A failure to provide prompt notice can bar a workers’ compensation claim. After an accident, you should immediately notify your employer. In Alabama, our Department of Labor provides a First Notice of Injury form that your employer should complete.

If you are facing a legal issue related to notice, let us know. We are happy to answer questions. Many times, the insurance company will wrongly deny a valid claim on this issue. Often, we can help.
