Every day in Mississippi, workers in food production plants prepare foods for sale at retail stores. It's a heavy workload, often performing the same tasks repeatedly. There is always the risk of injury. When food production workers get hurt on the job, they are entitled to workers' compensation benefits. But actually getting those benefits can often be very difficult. That's why injured workers in Ridgeland, Jackson and beyond need the experienced workers' compensation attorneys at Tabor Law Firm, P.A. fight for their rights.

Food production workers spend their shifts cutting, trimming, packaging and processing various types of food items.

    A workplace injury or illness requires medical treatment. Between testing, treatment, surgery, doctor appointments, medication and therapy, the costs can add up quickly. Injured workers are left unable to return to their job and they lose income as a result. But the bills keep coming in and they are left wondering how they are going to get by.

    An Experienced Lawyer Can Fight For the Benefits You Need

    In Mississippi, injured workers are eligible for workers' compensation benefits. These benefits pay the costs of all reasonable and necessary medical treatment and also provide partial wages while the worker is recovering. However, the claims process can be confusing and frustrating. Many claims are denied because employers and insurance companies looking to pay as little as possible challenge them.
