The question of whether or not to hire an attorney is one we hear often, and the answers we give can often depend on the severity of the injury or other factors about a particular workers’ compensation case. According to the Mississippi Workers’ Compensation Commission, “workers’ compensation is essentially a no-fault insurance plan mandated by State law, supervised by the Workers’ Compensation Commission and paid for entirely by employers.” The phrase “no-fault” is typically used when there is an insurance payout regardless of which party was at fault when the accident occurred.
Overall, you would probably not need the services of an attorney if your injury was minor, if the employer admits fault or if you didn’t miss any work due to your injury. If your situation is any more complicated than that, however, we recommend that you call us immediately for a free consultation. You have nothing to lose.
Experienced Maggio & Thompson attorneys have the ferocity needed to manage even the most difficult workers’ compensation cases. However, even if you feel that your case isn’t that serious, it never hurts to speak with an attorney as soon as possible. It’s crucial that you receive everything you are entitled to, and a consultation with us is free — so you have nothing to lose.
