Workers’ Compensation

EXPERIENCED WORKERS’ COMPENSATION LAWYER

I am a workers’ compensation attorney with nearly 40 years of experience obtaining successful results for injured workers  throughout southwestern Louisiana I will handle all aspects of your claim, and file suit if need be. I will handle your appeal should the trial court rule against us.

Workers’ Compensation Claims

If you have been injured during the course and scope of your job, regardless of who was at fault, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits,  including:

  • Medical expenses — State law mandates that medical costs arising from a workplace illness or injury must be covered. If your employer or its insurance company are refusing to pay these related bills, or authorize treatment, I will immediately intervene.
  • Wage benefits — While you are out of work because of your job-related injury, you are entitled to receive two-thirds of your normal weekly wage, up to a statutory limit.
  • Rehabilitation costs — If you require vocational retraining to return to work or to obtain another job, I will see that this retraining is provided.
  • I will see that your are reimbursed for out of pocket expenses,  such as mileage to and from your medical care provider.
  • Permanent disability benefits — Should the medical evidence establish you are either permanently partially or permanently and totally disabled, I will fight to see you are compensated according to law.
  • In certain cases, the employer and/or its insurer may have to pay you penalties or your attorney fees.

Schedule a free initial consultation so I can explain your possible entitlement to these benefits, as well as the means to assert your claims. In the meantime, quickly notify your employer of the accident and injuries. Also be aware you lose your rights if you have not filed your claim in court within one year either of the accident or last payment of weekly benefits.

EXPERIENCE COUNTS!

For years I represented employers and their insurance companies. I know their attitudes and tactics. For instance, they may question the origin or severity of your accident/injury. They may deny your right to seek medical care with a doctor of your choice. Whatever grounds they give for denying your rights, I will fight tooth and nail to see you receive all of the benefits and rights you deserve.
