Protecting Your Rights & Fighting for Your Best Interests
Countless workers are injured on the job every year. These injuries usually take a heavy financial toll. Things get even worse when people are let go from a job following an injury.
Many people are not even aware that they can file for workers' compensation. In Mississippi, a worker is entitled to compensation if he or she suffers a work injury that comes about during the course and scope of employment. State law guarantees the payment of certain medical and wage loss benefits to individuals who are injured on the job. Our workers’ compensation attorneys in Jackson can guide you through each stage of this complex process.

Pursuing the Full & Fair Compensation You Deserve

Insurance companies are only concerned about their bottom lines. They often work to avoid paying claims and will use tactics to avoid paying you for the benefits you deserve.

What If Someone Else Caused My Workplace Injuries?
Workers' compensation is designed to be a faultless system. In other words, you cannot sue your employer for additional damages outside of the workers' compensation system.

As your representative, we will pursue all possible avenues of compensation for your injuries, and we will work to hold responsible parties accountable.
