Case nurses serve a very important role in Alabama workers’ compensation cases. They are hired by the workers’ compensation insurance company to help facilitate medical care for the injured worker. Setting appointments, sending reminders and staying in communication with the doctor’s office are some of the responsibilities they perform. The great majority of the case nurses are fantastic at their job and help the injured worker through parts of the work comp process. However, there are some case nurses who forget their client is the injured worker (and not the insurance company) and this creates problems for the injured worker.
