On The Job Injuries

Poplarville Workers' Compensation Attorneys

Williams, Williams & Montgomery, P.A. is one of South Mississippi's most established workers' compensation practices. We have helped countless employees hurt or sickened in the workplace apply for and receive workers' compensation benefits.

Under Mississippi's workers' compensation system, injured workers are supposed to quickly receive disability assistance, medical care, and wage replacement benefits, regardless of the employer's fault for the injury. This arrangement is designed to avoid drawn-out lawsuits by workers against employers to get the money they need immediately. Yet, quite often, the employer or insurance carrier contests the payment of benefits or refuses to provide needed medical care.

Trustworthy, experienced representation

Our experienced workers' compensation lawyers work persistently on our clients' behalf to ensure proper payment of benefits. We represent injured workers from the initial claim through negotiation, settlement, or appeal of a workers' compensation award.

Our skills are varied. We handle an array of workplace injury claims, including:

  • Construction accidents
  • Factory or manufacturing accidents
  • Warehouse accidents
  • Accidents involving equipment
  • Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD)
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Exposure to HIV/AIDs and hepatitis
  • Longshoremen injuries

If a worker is temporarily or permanently disabled, the workers' compensation program provides ongoing disability payments for a limited time during the disability. We can help prove the extent of your disability and make sure that your benefits match your needs, if you face:

  • Permanent total disability
  • Permanent partial disability
  • Temporary total disability
  • Temporary partial disability
  • Need for further medical treatment
  • Seeking every recourse to benefit clients

Quite often, workers' compensation is not the only solution. In many instances, someone other than the employer shares responsibility for an injury, such as a building owner, a subcontractor, a product's manufacturer or designer. If another person or company helped bring about a workplace injury or illness, we apply our knowledge of personal injury and negligence law to pursue those parties for recovery above and beyond workers' compensation benefits.
