Providing You with Coverage

You can receive workers’ compensation for a wide variety of reasons while on-the-job, your eligibility will depend on if you are an employee of the company in which the injury took place at, and if your employer has coverage. Generally, an employee who suffers a work-related injury or illness is eligible to receive workers’ compensation regardless of who is at fault. In Mississippi, employers are required to provide workers compensation insurance to all of their employees. If a company has fewer than five employees, the employer is exempt from having to provide work related injury coverage.

If you have suffered an injury while on the job, you have the right to make the initial choice determining which physician you want to seek treatment through. Because, in the state of Mississippi, there is a five day waiting period for workers’ comp benefits, which means although you may file you claim immediately following your accident you will not receive compensation until five days following your incident.
