The average employee in Mississippi should be afforded some sort of workers’ compensation due to state and federal laws. Using workers’ compensation benefits and securing coverage after a workplace accident is not guaranteed by those laws, however. Without the correct approach and thoroughness, any workers’ compensation benefits claim could be delayed or denied.

Workers’ compensation coverage is not given to everyone in Mississippi. You must work for a company of a certain size, or hold a career of a certain position. Our Jackson MS workers’ compensation attorneys will work closely with you from start to finish to ensure that your case is being handled as best as can be, starting with first determining if you have the correct eligibility. If you do not, we will also want to review your occupation and employment contracts to make certain you are not having your right to workers’ compensation violated by its absence.
Let us handle all of these aspects and more of your workers’ compensation claim:
Our goal from the first second of your case is obtaining as much workers’ compensation coverage for you as possible. Insurance companies may work diligently to give you as little as they can, but we are steadfast and tenacious when dealing with opposition. Contact us online to talk with our team about what needs to be done to ensure you recover comfortably after being hurt on-the-job.
Many of our clients mention that they were the only party liable for their injury at work, and therefore believe that they cannot get workers’ compensation. In some cases, an employer or insurance company actually proposes that workers’ comp benefits should be reduced or denied due to the employee’s own liability. It is important to realize that liability does not hold weight in workers’ compensation claims. You can directly and immediately admit that you made a mistake that caused your own accident and your eligibility to gain benefits should not be compromised.
