Our experienced lawyers build strong cases
Every day, workers in warehouses bring product in from loading docks, sort product, store product and ship it out to another location. Their job often involves:
- Heavy lifting
- Operating forklifts and pallet jacks
- Operating machinery
- Working on loading docks
- Performing repetitive tasks
- Exposure to chemicals and other hazardous materials
- Exposure to viruses and bacteria
A workplace accident can involve a forklift or machinery accident, a slip and fall, falling objects or repetitive motion injury. Workers can suffer injuries to the head, neck, back, shoulders, legs, knees, ankles, feet, arms, hands or wrists. They need medical treatment and expenses can add up very quickly. They are also unable to work, however, and the paychecks have come to a stop.
In Mississippi, the state’s workers’ compensation system is set up to pay the medical expenses of injured workers and provide them with partial wages while they can’t return to the job. Employers and insurance companies often challenge workers’ compensation claims, however, and they have lawyers looking out for their best interests.
That’s why you need an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer who will fight for you. Our attorneys know the tactics that employers and insurance companies use to try to limit your benefits. They’ll question the seriousness of your injuries or argue they weren’t work-related. They may pressure you into returning to work while you are still recovering.
