Will Parker devotes a significant portion of his practice to workers’ compensation claims and is always available for an injured worker to consult concerning their rights.
Workers’ compensation is a no-fault insurance plan which is required for every employer in the State of Mississippi with five employees or more with a few exceptions such as farmers or charitable organizations. No-fault means that if you are injured at work you are entitled to workers’ compensation even if no one did anything wrong to cause your injury.
Medical treatment is available for persons covered by workers’ compensation and there is also the possibility of payments for temporary disability and permanent disability.
The workers’ compensation system was designed to try and protect workers who were injured in the event of a workplace injury. Workers’ compensation benefits are paid by your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance. Following an injury, the insurance company may try to settle the matter quickly to minimize its costs and exposure. It is in an injured worker’s best interest to know their rights under the law and what benefits are available to them.
