When You Have Been Injured On The Job

  • Immediately report your injury to your employer

The Mississippi Workers' Compensation Act requires that you notify your employer of your injury. It does not matter how insignificant you believe your injury to be. It is extremely important that you notify your supervisor and fill out an accident report. If you have not yet reported your injury, do so as soon as possible.

  • Contact an experienced workers' compensation attorney

The course of action you take from the beginning of your workers' compensation claim is extremely important. You have the right to choose the physician that will treat your injury. Alternatively, you can accept treatment from the doctor provided by your employer and its insurance company. This decision can be critical to your claim and well-being. Let us help you make the right decision.
