What Is Workers’ Comp?
Workers’ comp is financial support available to you when you’re hurt on the job.
If you work in Louisiana or Mississippi, you’ve earned the right to workers’ comp. When you get hurt at work – and find yourself Too Hurt To WorkTM – you’re entitled to receive these benefits under state law.
Workers’ comp covers three kinds of expenses you face after a work-related injury:
- Medical care you need as a result of your injury
- A portion of the wages you miss when you’re Too Hurt To WorkTM
- Orientation and training for a new kind of job
Starting Your Workers’
You always start your workers’ comp claim one way: You report your injury to your boss.
Your employer is required by law to carry insurance that pays for workers’ comp, or they have to be self-insured.
When you tell your supervisor what happened, it’s their obligation to file a report of your claim so your medical care is paid for and your lost wages are covered quickly.
But it doesn’t always work that way. They refuse to pay some – or any – of your workers’ comp benefits. Or they move too slow.
When that happens, you need an experienced lawyer who knows how to navigate the system.
Do You Need A Lawyer?
When your employer or their workers’ comp insurance company refuses to help when you need it the most, the situation quickly gets complicated.
You’re already dealing with your injury. Now you have to deal with forms, deadlines, claims adjusters and doctors.
An experienced workers’ comp lawyer takes on this burden so you can focus on your health.
Workers’ comp has its own legal system separate from the regular courts. It’s different in every state. It has its own courts and judges.
When you have a lawyer who knows this system and how to make a successful claim for you, it can make a big difference.
At Mitchell & Associates, we’ve helped people with just about every issue that can come up under workers’ comp.
