The workers’ compensation lawyers at the Jackson law firm of Gill, Ladner & Priest, PLLC, have a combined 45 years of experience helping injured Mississippi workers get full and fair compensation in workers’ compensation claims. Our attorneys can assess your claim and determine the best course of action to take in order to gain the best possible results in your workers’ compensation case.
Injured workers have the right to compensation: Workplace accidents and on-the-job injuries can prevent you from working and supporting your family. You have a right to treatment and compensation for your lost wages and medical bills.
In many cases, injured workers proceed through the workers’ compensation system with little or no trouble. However, some workers’ compensation insurance companies take advantage of employees who make claims after a workplace injury. The insurance company’s bad faith or failure to compensate a valid claim can make it impossible for you to obtain workers’ compensation even if you are entitled to it.
We handle all types of workplace injuries that stemmed from a range of accidents, such as:
Do not be tricked into giving up what is rightfully yours. Report your injury immediately to your supervisor or employer, and fill out the necessary documentation in order to receive benefits.
If you believe you are not receiving full compensation or have been harassed about the true nature of your injuries, let us help you defend yourself and gain the benefits you deserve. We are happy to provide a free, confidential consultation.
If you were hurt on the job, you may be entitled to more compensation than is available through workers’ comp claims. Depending on the circumstances of your accident, it is possible that another company may be obligated to compensate you for your injuries and losses.
For example, if you were injured in an offshore accident or on a construction site and your injury was caused by a dangerous or defective product, then you might be entitled to additional compensation from the product’s manufacturer or distributor.
At Gill, Ladner & Priest, we have the necessary knowledge and experience to assist you with both your workers’ compensation claim and, if appropriate, your personal injury claim.
