    A workplace accident can change a worker’s life in an instant. Following an accident, a worker may be left with broken bones, burns, a traumatic brain injury, a spinal cord injury or injuries to back, knees or shoulder. They are left needing medical treatment and unable to return to their job to earn a living. Many workers aren’t sure what to do next.

    The right to workers’ compensation benefits

    In Mississippi, the majority of employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. They can either purchase a policy from a private insurance company, or larger employers may seek certification from the state to become self-insured. This insurance is designed to cover workers who are injured in workplace accidents.

    Workers’ compensation is a no-fault system. That means you do not have to prove that the employer’s negligence led to your accident. It doesn’t matter if you caused the accident. If you were hurt in a work accident, you are covered, no matter whose fault it was, and you become eligible for benefits on your very first day of work.

    If you were injured in a work accident, workers’ compensation pays the cost of all reasonable and necessary medical treatment related to your injury. In addition, you are eligible to receive partial wages during the time you are left unable to work. If you can’t return to your previous job because of your injury, vocational rehabilitation benefits can help you find a new job.

    That doesn’t mean getting workers’ compensation benefits is easy. Employers and insurance companies are always looking to pay as little as possible. They can and do challenge claims for benefits.
