Mississippi workers’ compensation laws require that certain benefits are paid to individuals injured at work. When employers and insurance companies try to deny these benefits, the workers’ compensation lawyers at Richard Schwartz & Associates can help. Our attorneys understand Mississippi workers’ compensation laws and will fight for you.
When you or your loved one is hurt on the job, Mississippi law requires certain benefits be paid. Despite the law, many employers and insurance companies will try to deny claims or pay as little as possible. Employers and insurance companies have the upper hand, unless you hire an experienced firm to handle your case.
