Our attorneys are serving clients remotely during COVID-19
Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves recently issued a statewide stay-at-home order (Executive Order No. 1466) amid the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. As a result, many businesses have closed their doors and many residents have been urged to stay home in order to prevent the spread of this disease.
Mississippi residents must still go out at times to get groceries and attend medical appointments. Those who work in essential businesses and services must still leave home to go to work. Some workers have the ability to work from home, but others must still go in to the office.
Can I obtain workers' compensation during this time?
Our medical professionals, grocery store employees, emergency service personnel, truck drivers and police officers risk their lives each day to serve the public. They are pushed beyond their normal limits in order to keep up with demands. During this time, workers are at a greater risk of:
- Becoming ill on the job
- Experiencing burnout and fatigue (which can lead to workplace accidents)
- Sustaining exertion injuries (strains, sprains, and musculoskeletal injuries)
- Sustaining serious injuries (head injuries, bone fractures, knee injuries, etc.)
- Workplace accidents (slip and falls, equipment accidents, falls from ladders, etc.)
- Exposure to hazardous chemicals and substances
If you are hurt on the job during this time, you can still pursue workers' compensation benefits. The attorneys at Tabor Law Firm, P.A. are fully operational and will serve new and existing clients remotely. During your initial consultation, we can inform you of your rights and help you explore all legal options available to you.
For your safety, and ours, your consultation can be conducted via FaceTime, Zoom, Skype, or by phone.
How can an attorney help me get workers' compensation benefits?
Pursuing a workers' compensation claim can be difficult, especially for workers who aren't familiar with Mississippi's complex legal system. Our attorneys can guide you through the process by ensuring that your paperwork is properly filled out and your case is prepared prior to trial.
In order to ensure that case work moves forward, we will continue to work with the courts and Social Security Administration remotely. We have been doing this for more than a year and are well-versed in effectively handling cases remotely.
