Getting Injured Isn’t Part Of Your Job Description
While certain jobs are more hazardous than others, all workers risk on-the-job injuries. Whether you were involved in an accident on a construction site, were seriously injured while traveling for work, or are suffering from carpal tunnel as a result of long-term repetitive motions, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries. A practiced Mississippi workers’ compensation lawyer can help you fight for justice after an unexpected on-the-job accident leaves you injured or unable to return to work.
Our lawyers have years of experience with workers’ comp and on-the-job claims, giving us the necessary skills, resources and attention to detail needed to aggressively advocate for you. We can skillfully negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf, working to recover the full and fair amount you are owed.
When To File a Workers’ Compensation Claim
Employers are required to maintain reasonably safe premises and workplaces for their employees. After any accident or injury that occurs during the course and scope of your job, you should file a workers’ compensation claim. No matter the severity of your injury – from slipping and falling to electrical shock to back injuries and more – you may be entitled to financial reparation.
Workers’ compensation can help you with:
- Expensive medical bills
- Physical rehabilitation therapy
- Lost or reduced wages
- Permanent disability costs
- Safeguarding against future accidents
- Inability to return to work
Our experienced Mississippi workers’ comp attorneys at Kilpatrick & Philley look at every specific detail or your unique case in order to determine liability. From there, we will work directly with insurance companies, striving to recover the maximum compensation you are owed.
