Workers’ Compensation Attorneys in Meridian, MS

Helping You Navigate Workplace Accidents and Injuries

No one wants to be in a position where they need to use workers’ compensation. Nevertheless, employers in Mississippi pay for this valuable, no-fault insurance because on-the-job accidents and injuries happen. When you get hurt at work, you're supposed turn to workers’ comp for your medical bills, lost wages, and other covered losses. Unfortunately, this system can be complex and can often make it difficult for injured workers to recover the benefits they deserve.

If you need help dealing with an employer, an insurer, a provider, or even the Mississippi Workers’ Compensation Commission (MWCC), look no further than ‘MAGGIO LAW.

Our Meridian, MS workers' comp lawyers can help you. All you have to do is call us at (601) 265-6869.

What Is the Difference Between a Workers’ Comp Claim and a Personal Injury Claim?

Generally, personal injury law is based on negligence and proving fault. On the other hand, workers’ compensation is a state-mandated, no-fault insurance plan paid for entirely by your employer.

Workers’ compensation protects employers from lawsuits and helps ensure injured employees receive the care and benefits they need. In some cases, you may be able to file both a workers’ comp claim and a third-party negligence lawsuit, but most often, workers’ comp eliminates the need for legal action.

That being said, many workplace accidents coincide with our other practice areas, including:

Other common workers’ comp claims include:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Repetitive stress injuries (RSIs)
  • Electrical injuries and electrocution
  • Strains, sprains, and other overexertion injuries
  • Workplace assaults and attacks
  • Occupational illnesses
  • Chemical exposure claims
  • Hearing loss and vision loss
  • Short-term and long-term disability

Problems in the Workers’ Comp Process

You can recruit an attorney at any time during the workers’ compensation process. While filing a claim, receiving care, and recovering benefits usually happens without any major issues, problems can occur at any point along the way.

For example, your employer could discourage you from making a claim or fail to make a report of your injury with the insurance company or the MWCC. While interfering with workers’ comp is a felony in Mississippi, some employers will do anything to save money.

If your benefits are being withheld or you are being intentionally misled, you will need our Meridian workers’ compensation lawyers to protect your legal rights.

Even after you and your employer file a valid claim together, you may face difficulties with your insurer. When this is the case, your claim will escalate to the MWCC and our attorneys can help you appeal.

Whatever you are facing, our team is here for you – in Meridian and across Mississippi!

What Benefits Am I Entitled To?

Workers’ compensation insurance provides 2 basic benefits to the worker:

  1. medical benefits, and
  2. wage loss benefits.

Medical benefits cover your treatments, doctor’s appointments, and medical transportation. Whatever you need to heal will usually be covered by workers’ comp.

Similarly, wage loss benefits give you the time you need to recover or help you adjust to the consequences of your injury. Temporary disability payments cover up to 2/3 of your weekly wage while you are receiving medical care and permanent disability payments kick in if you are still unable (or less able) to work once you have reached your fullest possible recovery.

How Can We Help?

When you hire an attorney, you have the option to go to court. With this in mind, many claims representatives put more effort into resolving your case to avoid litigation. Having a lawyer may also give you leverage with the MWCC, or even translate your claim into terms the Commission understands.

If you successfully recover benefits with the help of your attorney, your attorney will take a small percentage of your award. If you go to court, your award might be larger, but more of it may be delegated to attorneys’ fees.
