Injuries Sustained on the Job

A workplace injury can result in a painful recovery period, as well as mounting medical costs. Often, a worker is unable to work temporarily and some are permanently impaired as a result of their accident. Your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance policy is intended to provide benefits for your medical care and compensation for your lost wages.

The most common workplace accidents include:

The best thing you can do for your case is to immediately notify your supervisor when you are injured at work. Otherwise, the employer may try to claim that the accident did not happen on the job. Protect yourself by informing your supervisor as soon as possible and provide a truthful account of your injury. If you meet resistance, contact a Mississippi workplace accidents attorney at our firm for help.
