Mississippi Workers' Compensation Attorneys

Richard Schwartz & Associates Will Take Care of You & Your Claim

Mississippi workers’ compensation laws require that certain benefits are paid to individuals injured at work. When employers and insurance companies try to deny these benefits, the workers’ compensation lawyers at Richard Schwartz & Associates can help. Our attorneys understand Mississippi workers’ compensation laws and will fight for you.

When you or your loved one is 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 Injury Lawyers, 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 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.

Our attorneys are not afraid to fight the insurance company or employer to ensure you get the help and benefits you deserve.

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.
