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.

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.
