What Are Mississippi's Workers' Compensation Benefits?

If you were injured at work, you might be entitled to compensation. This compensation can be used to cover:

  1. Medical expenses
  2. Lost wages
  3. Rehabilitation costs
  4. Costs associated with a permanent disability
  5. Death benefits for the victim's family if their injuries resulted in death

Can I Sue My Employer for Injury at Work?

While some states allow workers to file a personal injury lawsuit against their employers if negligence was a contributing factor in their accident, Mississippi does not allow this. While it may be frustrating, workers must go through the workers' compensation system to obtain compensation for medical bills, treatment, lost wages, etc. However, there are certain situations in which you may be eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit against a third party in addition to your workers' comp claim:

  • If a defective product created by a third-party manufacturer contributed to your work injury
  • If you were involved in a car accident with a third party while driving a company vehicle
  • If a third party's negligence contributed to your injury at work
