Fighting For Your Workers’ Compensation Benefits
The purpose of workers’ compensation is to help employees recover financially after work injuries. While workers’ compensation is an invaluable resource, that does not mean that it is always easy to get.
Your employer’s insurer may delay or deny your claim. At The King Law Firm, PLLC, our lawyer has the experience necessary to obtain the workers’ compensation benefits you need. Whether you are applying for benefits or appealing a denial, we’re ready to help injured workers in Harrison County and the surrounding area.
What To Know About Workers’ Compensation
If you received an injury in the workplace, you have 30 days from the date of your injury to report it to your employer. If your claim is accepted, you will receive compensation to help pay for:
- Doctor visitation
- Medical bills
- Medical equipment
You may receive up to two thirds of your regular income for up to 450 weeks in Mississippi. If your injury becomes a permanent disability, you may be eligible for additional benefits. Our attorney will walk through all benefits you may be entitled to receive and will ensure all applicable deadlines are met.
If you find that the insurance company denied your claim, that isn’t the end of the road. You have the option to pursue an appeal. This process can be extremely complicated. An experienced attorney can considerably improve your chances of success.
