Workers’ Comp Is What We Do

    Workers in the Shreveport-Bossier City area contribute mightily to Louisiana and our nation.

    In Northwest Louisiana, people in manufacturing, recycling, defense, shipping, natural gas, health care, hospitality, and many other roles keep our economy going and our community unlike any other.

    When your job in the Shreveport-Bossier City area leads to an injury, you should get strong support in exchange for the hard work you’ve done.

    Workers’ compensation benefits can cover your medical costs and replace some of the income you lost if you had to stop working.

    But workers don’t always know everything they’re entitled to receive. And workers’ comp insurance companies don’t always cooperate.

    We fight to get you the maximum workers’ comp benefits so that, after the harsh interruption of a job injury, you can focus on living your life again.

    Why Do You Need a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer in the Shreveport-Bossier City Area?

    Workers’ comp should be simple: You’re an employee. You’re hurt on the job. You get benefits.

    This system was created so you receive fast help and your employer avoids getting sued. It’s a different legal process from, say, a personal injury case after a car accident.

    But any time money’s involved, things get complicated. Sometimes, employers and workers’ comp insurance companies stand in your way.

    Your claim can go wrong when:

    • Your employer fails to file your workers’ comp claim.
    • The insurance company fails to start your payments in a timely way.
    • Your payments come in the wrong amount.
    • The insurance company sends a nurse to watch you in a doctor visit, looking for reasons to reject your benefits.
    • The company doctor puts your employer’s needs above your own.
    • Your employer or its insurance company neglects to tell you about every benefit you should receive.
    • The insurance company uses a drug test to unfairly block your benefits.
    • Case workers use job retraining as a way to stop your benefits too soon.

    At every step of the process, there’s a way to stop them from treating you unfairly: get an experienced workers’ comp lawyer working for you.

    Workers’ comp is a special area of law, and this is a special type of lawyer who knows how to push back and get better results for you.

    What Do Workers’ Compensation Benefits Pay in the Shreveport-Bossier City Area?

    Workers’ comp benefits can be a life changer.

    Just about any employee in Louisiana should be covered because employers are required to carry workers’ comp insurance.

    Getting the full benefits you’re entitled to receive can make the difference between long-term struggle after an injury on the job and long-term recovery.

    This is what benefits provide:

    • Lost Wages: When you can’t work, benefits include weekly checks covering a portion of your missing income, typically two-thirds.
    • Medical Care: All medical treatment related to your workplace injury or illness should be paid for under workers’ comp.
    • Reimbursement: You can receive reimbursement for some expenses caused by your injury, such as travel to medical appointments. In some cases, the insurance company may even be required to arrange transportation for you.
    • Payment for Reduced Earnings: If you can go back to work but your injury leaves you unable to earn as much as before, you can receive a supplement to your pay.
    • Job Placement Support: A program called vocational rehabilitation is supposed to help you return to work. Proceed with caution because insurance companies can use this to cut off your benefits and save themselves money without truly helping you find quality work.

    These are benefits you are entitled to receive after you worked hard but got hurt at work. Don’t hesitate to claim this crucial support and put your injury and hardship in the past.

    If you’re in the Shreveport-Bossier City area or anywhere else in Northwest Louisiana, get strong backing for your workers’ comp claim.
