How Your Case Can Be Affected By Social Media

social media

Social media can affect your case in many ways. Imagine that you are unloading your groceries and you see a strange man in the bushes holding a video camera.  He quickly walks to his van as soon as the two of you make eye contact.  For many years insurance companies have been hiring private investigators to follow injured workers in hopes of “catching” them doing something their doctor has told them not to do or doing something that they state causes them pain.  Even something innocent can be mis-characterized by a private investigator.  Some insurance companies still use this tactic.  Injured...

Workers’ Compensation claim and choosing your own doctor.

Choosing Your Own Doctor

Can I choose my own doctor for my Workers' Compensation claim? Yes you can choose your own doctor for your Workers' Compensation claim!  But hurry.  When you are injured on the job, you have the right to choose a doctor to treat you for your work injury.  In Mississippi, you can accept the medial services and doctor being provided by your employer, or you can choose your own doctor.  This means that you have the right to reject the doctor that the employer offers and pick your own. If the employer does not send you to a doctor, you can still have a...

Can I be fired while being treated for my workers compensation case?

Fired

Yes. In the state of Mississippi, your employer can fire you while you are being treated for your workers’ compensation case.  Mississippi is an “at-will employment” state, which means that you can be fired for any reason.  In other words, you can be fired for misconduct or because the employer doesn’t like the color of your shoes.  You can even be fired for the mere fact that you made a workers compensation claim.  It is not fair.  But it is the law.  Our firm and many others have done their best, year after year, to get the legislature to change...

Legal for insurance co. to do surveillance on me?

Surveillance

  Yes it is legal as long as done peacefully without harassment.  After an injury, you should always consider the possibility you may be under surveillance.  Be careful not to violate your doctor restrictions, unless you want to see yourself on camera doing something that you and your doctor said you couldn’t do.  After you have been injured on the job, your doctor should tell you what activities are safe to do and what activities will aggravate or worsen your injury.  If your doctor has not told you what your restrictions or limitations are, or your current work status, talk to...

My final workers comp hearing?

Workers Comp Hearing

What should I expect in my final workers comp hearing (I’m nervous and I have never been in Court before)? Mississippi Workers’ Compensation trials are not like the trials you see on Law and Order.  There is no jury and no audience.  There are usually just a few people in a small room.  Just a judge, you, your attorney, a representative of your Employer, and your Employer’s attorney will attend the hearing.  Sometimes, there may be witnesses there who know something important about the case.  Doctor’s usually give their testimony through their records or a deposition transcript which can be introduced...
