Louisiana Workers' Compensation Attorney

If you are injured in the course and scope of your employment, regardless of fault, you have certain guaranteed rights, like the right to emergency medical treatment and the right to choose your own physician.

In addition, your employer is required to pay for all reasonable and necessary medical treatment and provide you with a percentage of your average weekly wage for every week that you are unable to work. These benefits are guaranteed by Louisiana law and, absent cases of fraud, must be provided within strict time limitations. Despite the guarantees afforded to you by law, these rights are often ignored by employers.

Let us help you get the workers' compensation benefits you need. Contact us today to speak with an experienced workers' compensation attorney. We proudly represent workers throughout the greater New Orleans area.

Taking On The Employer And The Insurance Company

Employers and their insurance companies constantly seek to limit their financial liabilities in a variety of ways. For example, after a work-related injury, you may be denied your necessary medical treatment, rushed back to work before you are physically able, or offered a lowball settlement that is sorely inadequate to meet your needs.

Protect yourself in these circumstances by calling our office. We will fight to ensure that your rights and interests are protected. After you receive the treatment you need and are able to return to work, we will negotiate a proper settlement with your employer or their insurance company.

You cannot be terminated for exercising your rights under the Louisiana workers' compensation laws, and any negative action by your employer could subject them to a lawsuit for retaliatory discharge. We can advise you in all of these matters and help you receive the workers' comp benefits you need and deserve.
