Get Workers' Compensation After A Work-Related Injury

Some jobs are more dangerous than others. If you've been injured at work, you may be eligible for workers' compensation benefits, especially if your injury makes it difficult or impossible to perform some or all of your duties at work.

Will Parker, Attorney At Law, has represented work accident victims throughout Lauderdale County in a variety of industries, including construction, manufacturing, health care and many others.

No matter what kind of injury you've suffered — a slip-and-fall, car accident, factory accident or any other — Will Parker can help you obtain the compensation to which you're entitled.

When An Injury Interferes With Your Work

Workers' compensation is a no-fault insurance plan that is required for every employer in Mississippi with five employees or more — with a few exceptions such as farmers and 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 people covered by workers' compensation, and some workers' comp recipients may be eligible for temporary disability and permanent disability payments.

The workers' compensation system was designed to protect those injured at work. 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 his or her rights under the law and what benefits are available.

Attorney Will Parker devotes a significant portion of his practice to workers' compensation claims and is always available for injured workers to consult concerning their rights.
