Eligibility to receive permanent disability benefits is based on the injury and/or the loss of wage-earning capacity. Your doctor will give you an impairment rating and restrictions on what you can do at your job.

The amount of disability benefits you receive depends on what body part is injured, the type of injury and the amount of damage to that body part. Body-as-a-whole injuries are a separate determination.

Compassionate, Affordable Legal Service

Our attorneys will provide the personal service you need and strive to understand your full situation to work for your best interests and determine the benefits you deserve. We can also negotiate an amount for future medical care, depending on what your doctor says you may or may not need.

In Mississippi, workers’ comp does not mean lifetime benefits. Workers’ comp covers a maximum of 450 weeks. After that, we will help you determine if you are eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD), and, if you are, we will help you negotiate for those benefits.
