Going to work can feel like a very routine task for individuals in Mississippi and elsewhere. While a person’s job is heavily relied on for income and the ability to afford daily living expenses, a career can also offer an individual purpose and enjoyment. Thus, when a worker is harmed at work, finding it challenging or impossible to work because of his or her injury, this can be extremely detrimental, as it impacts the work both physically and financially.
Following a workplace injury, it is common for an injured worker to file for workers’ compensation benefits. While many workers obtain these benefits in such a situation, others find it difficult to secure these necessary benefits.
