Biloxi Workers’ Compensation Attorneys

Guiding You Through Workers’ Compensation Claims

Whether you live in Biloxi or anywhere else in the United States, you have a legal right to feel safe at your place of work. Employers must keep offices and job sites safe and protect employees from on-the-job injuries and illnesses. Nevertheless, oversights and accidents happen. Fortunately, most states have mandatory no-fault insurance policies to account for these mistakes. These policies are purchased by employers and can provide valuable benefits whenever someone gets hurt, regardless of who or what caused the accident or injury. These policies and benefits are referred to as workers’ compensation.

Although workers’ compensation is a crucial workplace system, it is not without its flaws. Sometimes, employers don’t want to pay for expensive policies, so they lead employees astray. Other times, insurance companies deny claims without rhyme or reason. Whenever there is an issue with a workers’ comp claim, the Mississippi Workers’ Compensation Commission (MWCC) steps in.

Unfortunately, the MWCC is notoriously hard to deal with. So, what’s an injured worker to do? We’re glad you asked.

At ‘MAGGIO LAW, we are up for the challenges presented by workers’ comp and have experience working with employers, insurers, and the MWCC. We would be delighted to help you with your claim, no matter where you’re at in the filing process.

To get started, simply call us at (601) 265-6869today.

Workers’ Comp – Step 1

After you seek emergency care and all necessary medical treatment, you will need to notify your employer. To account for extenuating circumstances and other delays, the MWCC allows you up to 30 days to make this notification.

If you do not report your injury or illness, however, your claim could be jeopardized.

Workers’ Comp – Step 2

Once you report your accident or ailment to your employer, they are responsible for notifying the workers’ comp insurance company and/or the MWCC. This is usually where problems start to occur.

If your employer misleads you or fails to report your injury or illness, you may need legal help. Typically, you will know when your employer has taken the appropriate steps when your workplace insurer contacts you. You may need to take phone calls or complete paperwork to get the appropriate benefits.

In this situation, no news is not good news.

If you feel like something’s wrong or even if you just need help with paperwork, don’t hesitate to contact our Biloxi workers’ compensation lawyers.

All meetings are 100% free and confidential.

Workers’ Comp – Step 3

As we mentioned above, your workers’ comp insurance company should contact you soon after your employer makes a claim. Once the insurer has gathered all the necessary information about your case, they will either grant or deny benefits.

Remember: your insurer must supply you with a valid reason for denying your benefits. Regardless of the reason, you have the right to appeal.

Appeals are generally handled through the MWCC, but don’t worry – our Biloxi workers’ compensation firm can help!

When Do I Need a Lawyer?

You can get legal help or recruit a lawyer at any point in the workers’ comp process. While you may be able to handle the first 3 steps on your own, it’s a good idea to have an attorney when you’re dealing with the MWCC.

This state commission has many strict and specific requirements that you must meet in order to have a successful claim or appeal.

At ‘MAGGIO LAW, we can help you create a strong and convincing claim and use it to get you the benefits you deserve.

When you work with us, you’ll be working directly with one of our Biloxi workers’ comp lawyers and you will not owe a single legal fee unless we win your case.

    "These people treated me as if I was family, and were caring and empathetic while we discussed our business."

    There wasn’t a question they couldn’t answer for me and if that certain staff member was unsure, they would find the person there who could accurately answer my question, as opposed to giving me some sort of educated guess.
