Sooner Rather than Later

sooner

After you are injured on the job in Mississippi, no matter how minor or severe the injury, you should always seek medical treatment and then contact an attorney that deals with Workers’ Compensation.  If the injury at work is not documented by medical treatment, the insurance carrier will try to argue that you were not really injured.
