Injured On The Job? Our Louisiana Attorneys Can Handle Your Workers’ Compensation Claim.
If you were injured on the job in Louisiana, you may be entitled to numerous benefits under the state’s workers’ compensation law. However, even a seemingly simple claim can lead to a denial of benefits if medical information is missing or the claim is otherwise handled incorrectly.
After a work injury, it is important that you speak with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney as soon as possible to ensure that you receive all of the benefits to which you are entitled. Depending on the facts of the case, those benefits may include:
- Medical evaluation, care and treatment by a doctor of your choice
- Reimbursement for travel to and from medical appointments
- Temporary total disability payments
- Compensation for permanent disfigurement and scarring
- Supplemental earning benefits after you reach maximum medical improvement

How We Can Help
Before claiming or accepting benefits through workers’ compensation, we encourage you to discuss your case with an experienced attorney at our firm. Unfortunately, your employer’s insurance company may be more concerned with the company’s bottom line than with your health. A skilled workers’ comp lawyer can handle all communications with the insurance carrier, as well as build a strong and complete workers’ compensation claim.
If you have been denied compensation, or were offered inadequate compensation, we can fight on your behalf to ensure that you receive the full and fair compensation you are owed.
