Construction consistently ranks as one of the most dangerous jobs in Mississippi. Employers should be doing everything within their power to protect construction workers while they are on the job, but time and time again Corban Gunn, Attorney at Law sees the opposite.
The construction industry is one of the most dangerous fields to work in because it accounts for nearly 21 percent of all occupational fatalities annually. Every year, approximately 1,000 individuals are fatally injured while employed and working in construction, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). In Mississippi, 90 people died from occupational injuries in 2017 and 13 of them worked in construction. Deaths tolls for this industry are on the rise. This happens when employers and job site owners neglect state and federal safety laws in order to save money or time.
If you work in construction, it’s crucial to understand what types of accidents are most common. This knowledge could help you avoid an accident and improve safety measure for all employees.
Negligence in the workplace can cause employees to get injured. People can get hurt in any workplace, even offices. But for workers who have jobs in areas that require safety equipment and gear have a higher risk of serious injury. Construction workers are often around heavy equipment, building materials, and also work at heights above ground-level. If anyone acts negligently and doesn’t have the safety of their workers as a top priority at all times, construction workers can suffer from major injuries.
Construction accident injuries can keep people from returning from work for a long time or even cause a long-lasting health issue that prevents them from coming back to their job when they’re healed. If you’ve been injured in a construction accident, you may be able to get compensation. A Biloxi construction injury lawyer from Corban Gunn, Attorney at Law can help you with your claim and recover the damages you deserve.
If you were recently injured in a work accident, you’re likely concerned about what kind of recovery time you’ll need, how you’ll be able to pay for medical treatment, how you’ll get paid for time spent off work, and how your employer will react. There’s a great deal to consider after getting a workplace injury in Mississippi. Mississippi’s workers’ compensation program exists to help injured workers, but the program can be difficult to navigate.
Your first step is to notify your workplace immediately about the accident and the fact that it occurred while working. You may be requested to visit certain doctors or follow up with your work’s insurance agency as soon as possible. Be sure to follow these steps as they’re requested, but as with any serious injury, you should first prioritize getting the medical care you need to begin your recovery process.

I highly recommend Corban Gunn. I am from Chicago and I while I was vacationing in Biloxi, I had an injury to my foot. I needed an attorney to assist with getting the medical bills paid, and a friend of mine, suggested I contact Corban Gunn.I contacted Corban and he was immediately responsive and opened a case on my behalf regarding my claim. Corban and his paralegal, updated me frequently with the case status. I never needed to worry about my case falling through the cracks. They were in full control, very attentive and it was a smooth process. I attended a deposition with Corban, and he was very polite, not just to me but opposing counsel too. It was a very comfortable setting, Corban spent time with me the day before prepping me with questions that may be asked by opposing counsel. The deposition was stress free and nothing to be nervous about.Corban was able to reach a fair settlement on my behalf.
Mr. Corban Gunn really helped my husband and family! He was very informative, easy to work with, and on top of everything! He kept us informed every step of the way. We would highly recommend him to anyone.
Corban is an outstanding lawyer with extensive experience and knowledge of personal injury. Our case was complicated, but he was committed to our case and worked through the fine details. He helped us move forward from the accident and gave us a positive outcome.
I was home bound after a car accident and Mr. Gunn made a house call to meet with me. When another attorney turned me down, Mr. Gunn gave me hope when he agreed to represent me. It was a long process but Mr. Gunn and Brandi kept me apprised of my case. Down to earth, fair, fought for me when I was being unfairly blamed. Highly recommend their services.
Demonstrating true integrity and compassion for the circumstances, Mr. Gunn did an excellent job handling a complex and lengthy case for our family. He and his office staff are extremely professional, knowledgeable, diligent, and dedicated to obtaining optimum results, which he most certainly did for us. Definitely five plus stars! Thank you!
Excellent negotiator...had to turn to my own uninsured motor vehicle coverage when I was injured by an uninsured, impaired driver...my own insurance company ignored me...Corban did a good job...I did not get a lot because of the $25K limit on my coverage, and I had to repay Medicare...but what I got was better than nothing.
Mr Gunn is the best. My wife was hit by a Truck in August 2017 and we hired Mr Gunn to represent us. We were more then satisfied with the settlement Mr Gunn got us and the deep concern he had for my wife and me. I would recommend Mr Gunn to anyone that needs a great lawyer to represent them.
Mr. W. C. Gunn was the most helpful attorney and provided the best information to me in order to understand the knowledge about each step i should take. Unfortunately, does not represent the type of legal services i am needing, however, this very intelligent attorney went above and beyond to inform me of each step to take including a next day trial without any legal representing me yet and gave me step by step to inform judge. Then Mr Gunn, took more time out of his own day to locate and send me his personal reference in the correct attorney that would do me the best! To top it off, wow how genuine, he even followed up with me. Now that a true genuine and absolute amazing lawyer and friend who my case has nothing to benifit him. You honestly dont see that very much!!! Thank you, Mr Gunn!!
I asked Mr. Gunn to represent me in an aviation case. Though the case meandered along for quite a while due to the other party's actions - or lack of actions, Mr. Gunn represented my interests well, updated me of progress along the way, and was professional during all aspects of the case. I would hire Mr. Gunn again if the need were to arise.
