Experienced Representation For Injured Workers

At the law office of Thompson & Hollingsworth, P.A., we have been helping the injured and their families for more than 30 years. Headquartered in Forest, Mississippi, our firm represents people throughout Scott County and the surrounding areas, who have suffered from an injury at work.

We represent injured workers from all kinds of workplaces and have experience with a wide range of issues, including:

  • Workers' compensation
  • Industrial accidents
  • Construction accidents
  • Ladder falls
  • Cut injury
  • Back injury
  • Repetitive strain injury/carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Fatal accidents/survivor benefits
  • Third-party lawsuits

When you are suffering from the effects of a workplace injury, a workers' compensation lawyer can help assert your rights and argue on your behalf so you can get the full amount of benefits you and your family need and deserve.

Workers' Compensation Is A No-Fault System

In a personal injury lawsuit, the injured person must prove that the other party was responsible for their injury and should be held liable for their damages. The Mississippi workers' compensation system has no such requirement. As long as you were injured on the job, your employer's insurance company is supposed to provide you with benefits to pay for your medical care and help cover other costs while you recover from your injury.

Unfortunately, many employers and their insurance providers reject claims or provide insufficient benefits.

We help injured workers at many points in the process. We help with filing initial claims, arranging medical treatment, and arguing on our clients' behalf in hearings and appeals. We draw on our experience and professional skill in fighting for our clients' rights.
