Have You Been Denied Medical Treatment?

We can help you or a loved one obtain proper, covered medical treatment for work-related injuries if any of the following treatments have been denied:

  • Surgery
  • Injections
  • Therapy
  • Prescription drugs
  • Diagnostic testing, such as MRIs

Some insurance companies deny all MRIs until you get a judge’s order.

Additionally, aggravation of preexisting conditions is fully covered by workers’ compensation under the law, but insurance carriers try to deny preexisting conditions claims all the time.

Any medical care your doctor says is medically necessary and reasonable to improve your condition should be covered by workers’ compensation. Our aggressive and diligent lawyers will work to get you the medical treatment you need for maximum medical improvement.

Workers’ comp in Mississippi does not entitle you to lifetime benefits. You are eligible for a maximum of 450 weeks of compensation. After that maximum is reached, we can help you seek Social Security Disability (SSD).

Obtaining Proper Medical Treatment

Insurance carriers have the right to require you to be seen by a doctor of their choice, but that does not mean you have to be treated by a doctor of their choice.

Do not wait to seek proper medical treatment. Properly identifying your condition is essential for your recovery, and that should be done by a doctor of your choice. Diagnosing a problem quickly helps us pursue workers’ compensation benefits.
