Shouldn’t You Get Compensated If a Work Injury Leaves You Forever Changed?

    If you’re going to live with the consequences of a work injury for the rest of your life, you shouldn’t be left with nothing.

    Under the Louisiana Workers’ Compensation Act, you’re entitled to payment.

    That includes Permanent Partial Disability (PPD) benefits, which provide financial assistance in these situations:

    • Your job injury leaves you without the use of a body part.
    • You will have serious scarring or disfigurement.
    • Your injury requires amputation.

    Workers’ compensation benefits can make a big difference for you, helping you maintain financial stability and adjust to life after your injury.

    But your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance company might not make it clear to you what you should be getting.

    A workers’ compensation lawyer can help you maximize your benefits. At Workers’ Compensation, LLC, our lawyers have put in over 130 years of combined effort helping more than 10,000 people.

    How Do Workers’ Compensation Lost Wages Work?

    Permanent Partial Disability benefits are a form of payment for wages you’ve lost when your injury has sidelined you.

    They pay two-thirds of your average wages from before your injury up to a limit set by the state. Your checks come weekly.

    In Louisiana, lost wages benefits are also called indemnity benefits. Benefits also take these forms:

    Supplemental Earnings Benefits (SEB) can last up to 10 years in Louisiana. Permanent Total Disability (PTD) can last longer than 10 years.

    The length of Permanent Partial Disability (PPD) benefits depends on which body part you injured and the severity level of the injury.

    You may be able to settle your workers’ claim and receive a lump sum rather than continuing to collect weekly checks.

    The factors that go into deciding on a settlement are complicated. But an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer can help you navigate the process and determine what’s right for you.
