Mississippi Workers’ Compensation Attorneys
When you or your loved one are hurt on the job, Mississippi law requires
certain benefits be paid. Despite the law, many employers and insurance
companies will try to deny claims or pay as little as possible. Employers
and insurance companies have the upper hand, unless you hire an experienced
firm to handle your case.
Our Mississippi workers' compensation lawyers at Richard Schwartz &
Associates, P.A. understand the challenges employees and their families
face when a disability or death occurs as a result of job-related injuries.
We work hard to make sure victims of workplace accidents qualify for:
- Payment of certain medical benefits
- Payment of lost wages
- Payment of death benefits to the surviving spouse and certain dependents
Getting the Right Representation
At Richard Schwartz & Associates, P.A. we have been successfully representing
injured workers from all over Mississippi for many years. Our firm was
founded right here in Mississippi. We take great pride in helping our
fellow Mississippians recover after they’ve been injured on the job.
We have handled all types of injuries including, but not limited to: herniated
or bulging discs, torn ligaments, severe burns, rotator cuff tears, broken
bones, head traumas, injuries due to repetitive motion such as carpal
tunnel syndrome, exposure to harmful chemicals causing injury, and many
others. We have the experience necessary to protect you in your time of need.
Our attorneys are not afraid to fight the insurance company or employer
to ensure you get the help and benefits you deserve. Many cases resolve
through settlement, but if we have to take your case to a hearing to get
you what you deserve, we will do it. If we have to fight your case all
the way to the Supreme Court of Mississippi, we will do it. Your case
is important to us.
Issues in Workers’ Compensation
Having represented thousands of injured workers over the years, our attorneys
have encountered so many different issues that arise in a workers’
compensation claim. Handling these types of cases is something we do on
a daily basis. For you, it is hopefully the first and only time you get
hurt on the job.
You probably have a million questions. What is or is not a work-related
injury? How much time do I have to report the injury? What benefits am
I entitled to? Can I be fired? What if the injury was my fault? What if
the injury was my employer’s fault? What if my injury was caused
by a third party? Do I get to choose my own doctor? What is the statute
of limitations? We can answer these and any other questions you may have
regarding your claim. Please give us a call to discuss your concerns.
