You have a right to workers’ compensation benefits

Most employers in Mississippi are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance so their employees are covered in the event of a work accident that results in injury. If you’ve been hurt in an on-the-job accident, you don’t need to prove negligence to receive benefits. That’s because workers’ compensation is a no-fault system, meaning it doesn’t matter if the accident was your fault or due to the negligence of your employer. As long as your employer has workers’ compensation insurance, you should be eligible for benefits on your very first day of the job.

Workers’ compensation pays for you to receive reasonable and appropriate medical treatment for your work injury. You should also be eligible to receive partial wages while you’re out of work, and if your injury leaves you disabled and unable to return to your job, vocational rehabilitation benefits are available to help you find a new place of employment.

Unfortunately, employers and insurance companies are notorious for disputing claims so they can pay you as little as possible. They may try to dispute the severity of your injury, downplay your need for certain medical treatment, or argue that you should be ready to return to work while you’re still trying to recover from your injury. Stop letting them give you a hard time. You have legal rights, and our work accident attorneys can protect them. See what the lawyers from our law firm can do for you.
