Why you need an experienced workers’ compensation attorney to handle your claim.

Workers’ compensation is a type of insurance coverage that most employers in Mississippi are required to have in order to provide compensation to employees who are injured on the job. The workers’ comp system is in place to protect workers, but the system can be complicated, confusing, and stressful without an experienced workers’ compensation attorney at your side.

The workers’ compensation attorneys at ‘Maggio | Thompson have successfully represented thousands of Mississippi workers.

 

 

Here are a few things that an attorney can help you with during your claim that may be difficult or impossible to do on your own:

  1. Figure out if your claim is worth pursuing. Our attorneys offer free consultations. You can call or come in to our office and our attorneys will discuss your claim and the potential they believe it has.
  2. Understand what you are entitled to receive. Tracking down what benefits you are entitled to can be a nightmare. Between the acronyms and the loopholes, it can be difficult to understand what workers’ comp is supposed to be giving you. Our experienced attorneys can guide you through the mess and make sure you are getting everything that you are entitled.
  3. Help you navigate the workers’ comp laws of your state. Workers’ compensation laws vary from state to state. Your claim is filed in whatever state you were injured and you need an attorney who know the law of the state and the workings of a work comp claim.
  4. Appeal or work through a denied claim. A denied claim can make your workers’ comp experience particularly difficult, but an experienced attorney can help you appeal the decision and work a denied claim through to settlement.
  5. Deal with your adjuster. Most claims start with your adjuster being responsive and easy to reach. Then, that dynamic shifts, and suddenly, your adjuster might as well live on Mars. What do you do when the adjuster won’t take your calls? What can you do? Our attorneys can handle your adjuster for you and file Motions on your behalf when an adjuster is dragging their feet.

Being injured and off work is difficult enough without having to fight an insurance company to provide you with the money you are owed. Let ‘Maggio | Thompson fight your claim while you heal.
