    How to Start Your Workers’ Comp Claim in Louisiana

    These should be your first moves after an accident at work:

    • Get Medical Treatment. Your immediate health needs are the top priority. Worry about your workers’ comp claim next.
    • Report Your Injury. Tell your employer about your injury. It is supposed to start your workers’ comp claim.
    • Don’t Agree to a Recorded Statement. Your employer will try to catch you on tape saying something that hurts your case for benefits. Now, you need a lawyer.
    • Talk to a Lawyer. When you have a workers’ compensation lawyer looking out for you, it becomes much harder for insurance companies to get away with undermining your case.
    • Don’t Let a Nurse Case Manager Watch Your Medical Treatment. Yes, the insurance companies try to do this to gather evidence to hurt your case. Your lawyer can stop it from happening.
    • Choose Your Own Doctor for Ongoing Care. Insurance companies and employers want you to see their doctor. Don’t. A lawyer can make sure you get a doctor who looks out for you.
    • Request a Copy of Your Injury Report. Your employer should have this. If not, your lawyer can make sure you get it.
    • Confirm That Your Claim Is Filed. Sometimes, employers delay filing claims. Your lawyer can help you stay on top of them.

    Some people might try to handle their workers’ comp claim on their own. It’s not a good idea because any mistake you make or anything you miss can hurt you in getting the maximum benefits in the end.

    But a lawyer knows what to do.
