Jackson Workers’ Compensation Attorney Fights for Your Benefits
Protecting Mississippi’s employees
You have devoted your skills and hard work to your job. If you are injured on that job, you deserve compensation.
You are entitled to workers’ compensation for an injury or illness that you sustained at your workplace or at a work-related activity, regardless of whether it is directly connected to your job. Even if your employer was not negligent or otherwise at fault, you have a right to workers’ compensation benefits. Joel W. Howell III fights for the compensation injured workers rightfully deserve, including:
- Compensation for permanent disability
- Dependants’ recovery for a worker’s death
- Lost wages or salary
- Rehabilitation expenses
- Retraining costs
I help you pursue any benefits you are entitled to under the law.
Waiving workers’ compensation benefits
If you suspect your injuries were caused by your employer’s negligence, seek legal advice before accepting any benefits. Once you accept a workers’ compensation payment, you forfeit your right to pursue other remedies against a negligent employer. I analyze your case to determine how you can recover the greatest possible compensation.
Appealing workers’ compensation decisions
You must immediately file an appeal of an unjust workers’ compensation denial. Failure to file an appeal in time bars you from recovery of compensation you rightfully deserve. I handle the rigid bureaucratic process of appealing to the Mississippi workers’ compensation board.
