Can I get Pain and Suffering in my Workers Compensation Case?
No, you cannot get paid for pain and suffering during or after your workers compensation case. Even though a work injury effects an individual and their loved ones in many ways—physically, emotionally, mentally, and financially to name a few—pain suffering benefits are not written into the Mississippi Workers’ Comp law. An on-the-job injury disturbs a person’s ability to earn a living, pay bills, buy groceries, socialize, and a multitude of other things yet you cannot get paid for everything you go through or the pain you endure when you suffer a job-related injury. An injured worker is entitled to only three things: medical treatment, payment for time off work, and payment for permanent damage to the body that affects the ability to work. However, Chhabra & Gibbs is an aggressive law firm that has a passion for helping people. We will work hard for you to get you what you are entitled to.
