In a year that have given us a global pandemic, violent demonstrations and protests, wildfires, locust swarms, murder hornets, and devastating hurricanes, it is appropriate that the Alabama Workers’ Compensation Blawg reaches its 13th year.  Never, in the 100 years since it went into effect, has the language of the Alabama Workers’ Compensation Act been so analyzed and dissected.  Never before has our system of workers’ compensation been so affected by both executive orders from the Governor and special orders from the Alabama Supreme Court.  We have endeavored to keep our readers apprised of all developments as they occur and will continue to do so.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for making this Blawg your go to resource for Alabama workers’ compensation news.  Wishing everyone a safe and healthy remainder of 2020!  Hopefully, there will be more positive things to report on our Blawg’s 14th birthday.
