Injuries are both painful and inconvenient. They can keep you from living your best possible life.

Help for injured workers
Whether you need help filing for workers’ compensation or disability benefits, or want to bring a lawsuit against a negligent manufacturer or company, Taylor Jones Taylor can help you. The firm has successfully represented workers injured by:
- Repetitive motions, such as lifting, bending or typing
- Heavy machinery
- Toxic compounds and materials
- Falling objects, resulting in traumatic brain injuries, crush injuries or broken bones
- Live electricity
- Faulty ladders or scaffolding
- Defective safety equipment, such as goggles or heard hats
- Other workers behaving negligently
- People speeding by on work vehicles or in their own personal vehicles, as in construction zones
Though the firm helps people injured on construction sites most often, the attorneys are equipped to take on any and all workplace injury cases, no matter how challenging they are. As a Mississippi worker, you have rights when you are injured on the job, and the firm can help you uphold them.
Workers’ comp vs. personal injury lawsuit
How do you know which one to file? First off, if you are injured on the job you should always file a claim for workers’ compensation benefits: that right is protected by Mississippi law. You may wish to file a civil lawsuit, however, if your boss refuses to allow the claim, or if your injury was the direct result of a defective product. If you have suffered the tragic and unexpected loss of your loved one, you may be able to file a wrongful death suit. It is best to discuss these options with a lawyer who both understands your goals and your case, but who also knows what kinds of cases are successful – and how to build those kinds of cases.
