Oil and gas workers can suffer a wide range of injuries. These include strains and sprains, broken bones, internal injuries, burns, traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injuries. The expenses for treating these injuries can add up very quickly. And workers are usually left temporarily - or permanently - unable to work, resulting in lost income.

In Mississippi, oil and gas workers who have been hurt on the job are eligible for workers' compensation benefits. These benefits cover the cost of all reasonable and necessary medical treatment - including hospitalization, surgery, doctor's visits, medication, therapy and medical apparatus. They can also collect partial wages during the time they are unable to work.

If Your Benefits are Being Denied, Our Law Firm Can Help

However, employers and insurance companies can and often do challenge claims for benefits. They may question the extent of the injury, or suggest that it was pre-existing. They may also question whether a certain medical procedure or medication is necessary. This can result in a denial of benefits.

That's why it's important to have an experienced workers' compensation attorney on your side. Tabor Law Firm, P.A. has been dedicated to helping injured workers for many years. We know how the system works and how to build strong cases to help you win your appeal.
