The role of your employer after a work-related accident

If you suffered an accident at work, you know the extent to which it can affect multiple areas of your life. From your physical abilities to your financial stability, getting hurt at work is a serious threat to your well-being. It is prudent for every Mississippi worker to know his or her rights in case of a work accident, regardless of job description. 

Your cancer diagnosis could qualify you for disablity

Cancer is a serious threat to your health, and it could represent a serious threat to your ability to work and provide for your family as well. When you are too sick to work or the effects of your medical treatment leave you unable to hold gainful employment, you could be eligible for disability benefits through the Social Security Administration.

Who or what is actually at fault for your car accident?

If you are suffering from injuries from a recent car accident in Mississippi, you know how quickly your life can change in that one moment of impact. From physical damage to emotional trauma, the impact of a collision can be deep and painful for a long time. It can be especially difficult to know that your accident was not your fault, but rather was the result of the actions of another person.

Problems with scaffolding are a threat to worker safety

Individuals employed in the construction industry in Mississippi may face more risks than people employed in other types of jobs, but these men and women still have the right to a reasonably safe workplace. On job sites, this means eliminating unnecessary hazards and making sure that all equipment is as safe as possible.

Proving that you have a valid claim to disability benefits

Suffering from a medical condition, injury or illness that prevents you from working could mean that you are eligible for Social Security disability benefits. Simply having a condition is not enough; you must complete an extensive application process, part of which includes having sufficient medical documents and other proof that verifies your claim of disability.

Occupational illnesses and your right to workers' compensation

Whether you work at a job considered inherently risky or more dangerous than other types of employment or not, you could still face exposure to certain things at work that could make you sick. There are various types of occupational illnesses, and Mississippi employees in various types of jobs could find themselves ill and missing work because of one of them.

Your neck injury could have a major impact on your life

Neck injuries are some of the most common types of car accident injuries, including whiplash. This type of injury, while rather common, can be quite serious, affecting a victim's mental and physical well-being in multiple ways. Mississippi victims would be wise to take their injury seriously, seeking appropriate medical care, as recovery can be lengthy and complicated.

Who's responsible when a doctor makes a mistake?

When you turn to a doctor for treatment, it is with the expectation that he or she will provide quality care. While doctors do make mistakes occasionally, there is a big difference between a mistake or unforeseen outcome and negligence. When doctor errors result in suffering or even death, who is liable?

I have cancer. What happens if I am unable to work?

A cancer diagnosis will have a significant impact on various areas of your life, including your career. Depending on the nature of your diagnosis and the type of treatment required, you could be left temporarily disabled and lacking the ability to hold gainful employment.

Is your loved one in danger?

If you're an adult child whose mother or father is in need of nursing home care, you've likely done your research to investigate various services located in your Mississippi region. There may be things you like more about one place than another. In the end, you really just want to find someplace where your loved one will be attended to according to the highest level of safety and care standards in order to live as happy and healthy a life as possible.
