Legal Experience on Work Injury Claims
After graduating from the University of Mississippi, Mr. Parsons spent eight years working in law firms that defended employers and insurance companies in workers’ compensation cases and liability claims. This background has provided unique insight into how big businesses and large insurance companies treat workers… and how they make it difficult for those hurt on the job to get the benefits they deserve.
Mr. Parsons was unhappy with the way that injured workers were treated after they got sick or injured and decided to start his own law firm to provide personalized, compassionate and knowledgeable legal assistance to employees and injury victims. Parsons & Associates, P.C. was created in 2003 from a desire to help people get their lives back together and avoid financial harm after serious injuries.
Parsons & Associates P.C. focuses on workers’ compensation cases and product liability litigation. Mr. Parsons no longer defends insurers, employers or big companies but instead works hard to get full and fair compensation for individuals who get hurt or who lose loved ones.
Successful Workers’ Compensation Cases and Injury Claims
Mr. Parsons has a long and successful track record of helping those who have been hurt to achieve compensation.
- In 2012, Mr. Parsons was associate counsel on a complex workers’ compensation case in which a third-party non-employer was liable for injuries caused in a collision.
