Dedicated Lawyer for Work Related Injuries in Hattiesburg
If you have been injured on the job, you have the right to seek benefits through workers' compensation, including coverage for your medical bills, lost wages and other considerations. The process for securing these benefits can be quite complex, and the assistance of an experienced Laurel workers' comp attorney can help to ensure that your interests are protected.
At the Sullivan Law Firm, PLLC in Laurel, Mississippi, I represent clients in all aspects of workers' compensation injury claims. Whether you need help with the initial application or need to challenge a denied claim for benefits, I am ready to step in at any point in the process to provide the representation you need to seek the maximum level of benefits available for your case.
Working to Level the Playing Field Between You and Your Employer
Employers and their insurance companies do not like to pay workers' compensation claims, and they will do whatever they can to avoid their responsibility for your injuries. They often try to deny claims by saying that your injury was a preexisting condition or that it was not work-related. I have a complete understanding of the law in these cases, and I have the strategies to match them at every step.
I have experience representing workers across all industries in all types of workers' compensation claims, including:
- Work-related injuries and fatalities
- Oil field accidents
- Offshore accidents, including Jones Act claims and injuries on the water
- On-the-job injuries
What if Defective Equipment Caused My Workplace Injuries?
If your injury was caused by defective equipment or machinery, you may have grounds for additional damages beyond your workers' compensation benefits. Depending on the circumstances, I may be able to help you pursue a separate personal injury claim against the manufacturer or maintenance company. These are often referred to as "third-party claims."
