The Workers' Compensation Claim Process in Mississippi
Our Jackson workers' comp lawyers explain what happens when you file for benefits
After a terrible accident at work, many injured employees are in the same position. They're in a lot of pain, unable to work or do normal daily activities, and worrying about paying escalating medical bills and monthly expenses.
Fortunately, injured employees are eligible to apply for workers' compensation. Benefits cover injury-related medical expenses, travel to medical appointments, and partial wages – about two-thirds of your average weekly wage.
Unfortunately, applying for benefits and getting the full compensation you deserve is often challenging. Claims get denied. Employees are pressured into returning to work before they are fully recovered. Insurance companies refute the necessity of important medical treatments.
