Workers’ Compensation Lawyers Serving Mississippi

On-the-Job Injuries

If You've Been Hurt at the Workplace, We Can Help

People throughout Mississippi go to work every day to earn a living and support their families. But an on-the-job injury can put that all at risk. Workers' compensation benefits are set up to help people hurt in work-related accidents. But the claims process can be difficult and frustrating. That's why injured workers in Mississippi turn to the experienced workers' compensation attorneys at Tabor Law Firm, P.A.

Some jobs - such as those in construction or manufacturing - carry a higher risk of injury, because there is a greater exposure to potential dangers. But a serious and debilitating on-the-job injury can happen at any type of job. Even minor injuries can leave a worker temporarily unable to perform the duties of the job.

Workers can experience a wide range of on-the-job injuries, including:

Workers' Compensation Benefits Can Help

Work injuries can require extensive medical treatment. This can include hospitalization, surgery, multiple doctor appointments, medication, therapy and apparatus such as crutches or wheelchairs. The expenses can add up quickly, at a time when the injured worker is unable to do the job, resulting in lost income.

Under the state's workers' compensation system, the cost of all reasonable and necessary medical treatment for on-the-job injuries is covered. In addition, while unable to return to work, the injured worker can collect partial wages. This system is designed to help the worker remain financially stable after a serious work injury.

But employers and their insurance companies may challenge your claim for benefits. Their interest is in paying you as little as they possibly can. So they may suggest that your injury was pre-existing. Or that a certain medical treatment is not necessary. Some employers pressure injured workers to return to the job, even though they are still recovering from their injuries.
