How Can I Get the Accident Report For My Injury Case in Mississippi?

Accident Report

If you are hurt at work in Mississippi, the employer will usually file a first report of injury with the Mississippi Workers’ Compensation Commission. That accident report can be obtained from the Mississippi Workers Compensation Commission website. Experienced Mississippi workers compensation lawyers have the ability to get these online pretty quickly. If you were hurt in a private business and not on the job, it will be up to the business whether they want to make a report. If they do, it will be private. They can turn it over if they want, but many times they refuse. The only way...

What Rights Does a Healthcare Worker Have When They Get Hurt by a Patient in Mississippi?

Hurt by patient

What types of rights do healthcare workers have in Mississippi if they get hurt by a patient? Mississippi law provides workers compensation benefits for people who get hurt at work regardless of the cause.  There are a few requirements that have to be met.  For example, the employer must have 5 or more employees in order for the workers compensation coverage mandate to apply.  The employee also must not have been engaged in horseplay at the time of the injury.  But fault is otherwise not an issue. Healthcare workers get attacked by patients more frequently than one might expect.  While the worker...

How Long is Too Long To Wait To Get Medical Treatment After Injury

Medical Treatment

How long is too long to wait to get medical treatment if you are in an injury?   When people have a fall at work or at a business, their first thought is often embarrassment, and their first feeling is often pain.  But in many cases it is hard to tell whether the pain is just a temporary soreness that does not require medical treatment, or something more serious.  There is no way to know for sure without seeing a doctor.  Some people are too stubborn to go to the doctor for medical treatment in Mississippi unless they absolutely have to and...

Hit and Run Car Accident in Mississippi?

Hit and Run in Mississippi

What should I do if I’m in a hit and run car accident in Mississippi?   First, do not chase them.  Let me say that again.  Do not chase the person you were in a hit and run car wreck with.  People do this because they have a sense of justice.  I understand that, but chasing someone could get you hurt...

Do lawyers really act like Saul?

Saul - Better Call Saul

Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul have become pop culture phenomenon’s on Netflix.  One of the characters is the sleazy money hungry lawyer called Saul.  He wears the car salesman suit and fits the obnoxious mold that we expect attorneys to have.  He even has this endearing side and line of ethics that he will not cross, although he always tries to figure out a way to get what he wants without getting himself in trouble.   As a lawyer, I can appreciate why people have stereotyped us, and why the show portrays Saul that way.  The purpose of this blog is...

When A Workers’ Comp Claim Turns Bumpy…

claim

Imagine this: the Employer and Carrier have admitted responsibility for your workers' compensation claim, and things are going smoothly.  The Employer and Carrier are paying for your medical treatment, you are receiving your TTD checks in a timely manner, you don’t have any issues with mileage or prescription reimbursement, and all is well.  All of the sudden something changes…. A doctor changes their opinion on whether your treatment is work related, you’re missing a check, or the adjuster won’t approve that surgery you need.   If you don’t already have a lawyer in place, and you wait to find one until something...
