Gulfport Work Injury Attorney

If you were seriously injured in a workplace accident, you may not be fully aware of your rights. You need the help of an experienced attorney who can protect your workers' compensation rights and identify third-party claims for additional damages. This is critical if you are sidelined from work with long-term or permanent injuries.

The Maggio Law Firm, PC, pursues all sources of compensation for a work-related injury. Beyond holding employers and insurance companies accountable for full workers' comp benefits, we have won personal injury damages from manufacturers, subcontractors, property owners and other entities. We represent workers in Gulfport, Biloxi, Pascagoula, Mobile and throughout Mississippi, Alabama and beyond.

What Are Your Remedies For A Work-Related Injury?

Third-party liability can be a huge component of your workplace accident case. You can't sue your employer or co-worker, but you may be able to sue other parties on the job site or companies whose negligence contributed to injuries.

  • A man came to us with a wrongful termination case. After being injured on the interstate in a company truck, he was fired for filing a workers' compensation case. When we investigated further, we identified a third-party claim against the other driver that eventually resulted in a settlement of almost $900,000 for our client — far beyond the value of his workers' comp claim.
  • We represented an employee of a mobile home installation crew. Although the homeowner followed the "call before you dig" protocol, the electrical lines were mismarked and our client was badly electrocuted. We recovered significant damages against the power company and the subcontractor.
  • We represented a painter who was run over by a forklift on a job site and obtained a good settlement in a cross-liability claim against the subcontractor that employed the forklift operator.
