Workers Compensation in Mississippi
If you're injured in a car accident or on someone else's property, you might have to sue the responsible individual to get money to pay for your medical costs. But if you're injured on the job or are diagnosed with an occupational illness, you typically don't have to sue your employer. That's because most jobs in Mississippi are covered by workers' compensation insurance, which provides money for medical bills, lost wages, and temporary and permanent disabilities. However, getting that money can still be a complicated legal process. A Mississippi workers' compensation attorney can help you get the money you deserve.
Reasons to Hire a Workers' Comp Attorney
Sometimes the Mississippi workers' compensation system works smoothly. But oftentimes you'll need to hire a workers' comp lawyer to get the money to which you are entitled. You'll want to hire an attorney if:
- You don't understand the Mississippi workers' comp claims process and need an attorney to guide you through it.
- Your workers' compensation claim was denied and will be appealed at a legal hearing or resolved through mediation
- You didn't receive all of the compensation to which you are entitled
- Your job wasn't covered by workers' comp insurance and you need to sue your employer for injury-related costs
