These injuries are especially dangerous because they can go unnoticed for hours or even days following an accident. For example, there could be internal bleeding, but the person injured may feel fine for some time. That’s why it’s so important to get medical attention after a workplace accident.
Trauma from a workplace accident can injure the heart, lungs, brain and other vital, internal organs. Treatment can involve surgery, hospitalization, therapy and medication. Recovery may take months, leaving families with no money coming in as medical expenses rise. Some workers may be left with a permanent disability.
We get results
The workers’ compensation system in Mississippi is supposed to help injured workers get the benefits they need to help them make ends meet during their recovery. But the process can be complicated. Claims can be denied. That’s why it’s important to have an experienced attorney on your side.
Employers and insurance companies often have lawyers looking out for their best interests. You need a lawyer who will fight for what’s best for you. Workers’ compensation attorneys Jonathan Tabor and Leigh-Ann Tabor have years of experience handling workers’ compensation claims. They know what it takes to build a successful case for benefits.
Our attorneys can help you navigate the claims process from start to finish. If an employer challenges your claim, or treatment for an injury is denied by the insurance company, we can provide aggressive representation at every step of the appeals process. We know how to gather evidence to build a strong case that proves you should be receiving benefits.
We demand justice
Insurance companies often resist paying workers’ compensation claims involving internal injuries. That’s because there’s a lot of money at stake. The more money they pay out in claims, the less money they make. They may challenge the extent of your injuries, or whether treatment recommended by your doctor is necessary.
That’s not acceptable. We will fight to help you get the full amount of benefits you need and deserve while you recover from your injuries. We are skilled negotiators and can sometimes negotiate a settlement of your claim that meets your needs. But if the insurance company won’t negotiate, our lawyers will go to court, where we have won many awards for clients.
