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.
Our firm hosts an annual Worker’s Compensation Employee seminar every year providing employer’s the most current case law and best practices in protecting their business.
Our experience includes:
- Winning a summary judgment dismissing, and upholding on appeal, a landmark case involving the ADA’s “perceived to be disabled” criteria where a physician claimed to be disabled as a result of contracting Hepatitis C in a surgical mishap.
- Prosecution of several workers compensation fraud cases to conclusion, assisting in the procurement of guilty pleas, sentencing and restitution.
- Resolved through a variety of ADR techniques, the closure of numerous complex permanent and total disability claims where the injured worker has been approved for, or is receiving, social security disability benefits. 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.
