Workers' compensation laws protect people who are injured on the job. They are designed to ensure that employees who are injured or disabled on the job are provided with fixed monetary awards, eliminating the need for litigation, and are provided adequate medical treatment for their injuries. These laws also provide benefits for dependents of those workers who are killed because of work-related accidents or illnesses.
Mississippi and Tennessee have "no-fault" statutory workers compensation laws, meaning that an employee does not need to prove that his employer was liable for causing his injury before he may recover. Under these systems, employees injured in the course of their employment relinquish their right to sue an employer under a tort theory of negligence in exchange for workers compensation benefits. Our attorneys are knowledgeable of the particular ins and outs of the administrative process which governs these claims, and have experience handling workers compensation claims from the date of injury through final adjudication.
