Heidelberg Steinberger has defended hundreds of workers’ compensation claims under the Mississippi Workers’ Compensation Act law as well as the federal Jones Act and the Longshoremen and Harbor Workers’ Act. Our attorneys skillfully handle claims from the time of accident through the highest court of appeals.

Many of these resolutions involved the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requiring the purchase of annuities to address the future medical needs of the injured worker.
