Workers' Compensation Claims

Nearly everyone works for a living. Unfortunately, sometimes injuries happen on the job. Workers' compensation exists so that injured workers do not have to sue their employers and employers are not at risk of financial ruin when an employee is hurt.

How Workers' Compensation Works

Employers pay workers' compensation insurance and in return, injured workers have the right to pursue compensation through that insurance. The system should be straightforward, and sometimes it is. However, many injured workers find the process of recovering money through a workers' compensation claim difficult.

Unfortunately, sometimes paperwork and other obstacles make it hard for workers to collect all they are eligible for to cover:

  • Medical treatment
  • Compensation for time off work
  • Compensation for any lasting disabilities

Neyman Law Firm, PLLC, in Hernando, Mississippi, provides guidance and representation for injured workers throughout DeSoto County and elsewhere in the region, including the Memphis area. Some have suffered serious injuries such as spinal cord injuries in construction accidents. Sometimes a client has suffered a soft tissue injury such as torn ligaments due to repeated heavy lifting. Any injury on the job requiring medical treatment can trigger a legitimate workers' compensation claim.

Guidance For Injured Workers In Mississippi And Tennessee

If you were injured on the job, you no doubt have many questions and issues to resolve. First, you may be entitled to temporary benefits right away. Workers' compensation can help ensure that you take time off work to heal as you should. It should also pay your medical bills. If you are unable to return to your job because of your injuries, workers' compensation also has provisions for this type of case. Attorney Joseph D. Neyman Jr. can help you through all phases of your workers' compensation claim and any necessary appeals.

Do You Have A Third-Party Claim, Too?

In addition to your workers' compensation benefits, you may have other sources of compensation available to you after a workplace injury. For example, you may file a personal injury claim against a third party (not your employer) if that third party's negligence caused or contributed to your accidental injury. A delivery company, a manufacturer or a subcontractor may be liable to compensate you.

There is no conflict of interest involved when Mr. Neyman also provides information and assistance to employers and workers' compensation insurance companies. With experience on both sides of the workplace injury equation, he is better able to keep any client fully informed about what to expect. Both employees and employers appreciate his depth of experience.
