Helping Injured Workers With Workers' Compensation Claims

Transportation workers are responsible for moving both people and goods throughout Mississippi every day. Their jobs carry health risks, and when transportation workers are hurt at work, they deserve to receive workers' compensation benefits. But just because they can receive such benefits does not mean they will actually get them. At Tabor Law Firm, P.A., our experienced workers' compensation attorneys can fight for their rights and the compensation they rightfully deserve.

Some of the injuries experienced by transportation workers include:

  • Back pain-Truck drivers, bus drivers, limo drivers and pilots all spend long hours being seated. This can cause pain in the middle and lower back.
  • Lifting injuries-Many transportation workers are required to lift merchandise being transported. This can lead to muscle strains and sprains and hernias.
  • Repetitive motion injuries-Drivers often perform the same motions repeatedly at work. This can lead to damaged muscles, nerves, tendons and ligaments in the hands, wrists and arms.
  • Crash injuries-If their vehicle or plane is involved in a crash, transportation workers can suffer serious injuries. These include broken bones, traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injuries.

Injuries require medical treatment, which may include surgery, hospitalization, doctor visits, medication and therapy. Costs can add up quickly. Injuries can also cause leave transportation workers temporarily - or in some cases, permanently - unable to return to the job. As a result, they lose income, and may worry about how they will support their families.

Workers' compensation benefits cover all reasonable and necessary medical treatment for their injuries. And they are also eligible to receive partial wages while they are unable to work. These benefits can help injured workers remain financially stable during their recovery. But getting those benefits is not always so simple.

Employers and insurance companies can and often do challenge workers' compensation claims. They may take the position that the injury was not work-related. Or they may question if a medical procedure is necessary. They may also insist the worker is able to return to work, even though he or she is still recovering from the injury. As a result, their claim for benefits may be denied.
