Jackson Workers’ Compensation Attorneys

Injured on the Job? Contact Our Experienced and Caring Attorneys to Seek Justice.

One Call That's All Logo

At Richard Schwartz & Associates, P.A., we are recognized as leaders in Mississippi workers’ compensation litigation. We are known throughout the state for routinely winning high settlements and verdicts on behalf of our clients. After an injury, you and your loved ones may face significant and costly changes to your life. Aside from not being able to work and therefore not receiving the paycheck you rely on you may face other stressors and difficulties related to your injury.

While Mississippi law provides protection to workers hurt on the job, requiring certain benefits be paid, many employees and their insurance companies will attempt to reject your workers’ compensation claim. Others will do all they can to underpay you. Our Jackson workers’ compensation lawyers are here to help you avoid these outcomes.

After a workplace injury, we can help you pursue compensation for the following:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • If applicable, permanent disability payments
  • If applicable, death benefits for the surviving next-of-kin

Our Jackson workers’ compensation attorneys can help you receive the benefits you need after an on-the-job accident. Call us at (601) 869-0696 if you want to get your claim started.

We’ve Been Helping Injured Workers for Years

To date, we have represented thousands of injured workers, and we can put our vast experience to work for you. We will aggressively pursue justice on your behalf, using our knowledge of the rules, procedures, and common insurer objections to prove your injuries deserve compensation.

We have handled cases involving the following types of on-the-job injuries:

  • Herniated and bulging disks
  • Torn ligaments
  • Severe burns
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Broken bones
  • Traumatic head injury
  • Repetitive motion injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Exposure to toxic chemicals

Whether you are hurt in an unexpected accident or face a cumulative injury (sometimes called a repetitive strain or stress injury) due to your work environment or duties, you deserve financial support for your recovery. Our attorneys are here to advocate for you. We will do whatever it takes, including filing and arguing a lawsuit, to help you receive the outcome you deserve.

Eligibility for Workers’ Compensation

Sometimes, we see employers who either tell their workers there is no insurance to cover on-the-job injuries or who try to convince injured workers there’s no point in applying for insurance because their claim won’t be covered. If you or a loved one has been told this, you should always seek a second opinion.

If you are a W-2 employee, your employer is likely required to carry workers’ compensation insurance to cover everyone in the business for any work-related health complaints. If your employer has illegally failed to purchase this insurance, our team can help you explore other legal avenues. However, it’s more likely you are covered, and your boss just doesn’t want you to drive company costs up by applying for help. All employees should know that, if your injury was caused in the course of normal work duties, it will be covered no matter who is at fault. If your employer or insurer tries to wiggle out of paying you what you deserve, contact our team for help challenging their decision.

Make Your Workers’ Compensation Claim As Strong As Possible

No matter the accident or your injuries, an insurer will investigate your claim to see if there is anything that will allow them to challenge the facts of your case. Working with our team, you can put together a strong initial claim that will be harder for an insurer to fight. Should they come back with a denial of part or all of the claim, we are here to argue its validity. Helping you find justice matters to us. If you’ve been injured at work, we’ll do our part to make things right.
