Serving Mississippi and Louisiana
Whether you have been injured in an on-the-job accident or are suffering from an occupational illness or repetitive stress injury, work-related injuries can be devastating for you and your family. Even you are expected to fully recover, and eventually return to work at the same level of pay, you have medical needs and loss of income to contend with. If your injuries are permanent, you may never be able to earn a living again. Workers’ Compensation laws were created to protect injured workers like you, and we are here to fight for the full benefits you need and deserve.
Why You Need a Workers’ Compensation Attorney
A Workers’ Compensation claim is not a lawsuit, and you do not need to prove fault to receive benefits. It is an insurance claim. The law was created to make it quick and easy for injured workers to receive medical benefits and replacement of a portion of their lost income.
The problem is that some employers and even more insurance companies try to deny Workers’ Compensation claims or cut benefits short. There are many tactics that they may try to use against you. Most often we see the insurance companies claiming that workers are able to return to work when they are still not well enough to work again.
Our Workers’ Compensation attorneys are here to fight for you. We will stand up to the insurance company so that you can get the full benefits that you deserve.
