Put Yourself in a Position to Get the Most Support

    If you’re an employee in Louisiana and you get hurt on the job, you should do three things right away:

    1. Get medical care.
    2. Report your injury to your supervisor.
    3. Talk to a workers’ comp lawyer so your claim is filed.

    Many Louisiana workers don’t realize that they’re covered by workers’ compensation, a program designed to give them financial support when a job injury derails them.

    Even more, workers don’t know all the benefits they can get. Especially if an injury has seriously hindered their ability to make a living, these benefits can be life changing.

    If your injury is an emergency—or really for any injury—your first priority should be to get you the medical care you need.

    But as soon as possible, talk to a lawyer.

    That’s because it’s easy to get shortchanged by this system. You may be entitled to more than you realize. A workers’ comp attorney knows what you should get and how to get it for you.

    Video: “You’ve Got to Report the Accident.”

    Transcript -

    Daren Sarphie: Well, the first thing you have to do when you’ve been hurt on the job is you’ve got to report the accident. You’ve got to report the injury. That’s not always an easy thing to do because sometimes supervisors aren’t around. Sometimes the office is closed.

    Make the call, leave a message, send a text message, but insist the employer make a report and insist that that employer give you a copy of the report. Unfortunately, in our experience, we’ve learned that insurance companies are more concerned about their bottom line than your well-being.

    The workers’ compensation process is a game of complicated rules. And if you don’t understand those rules, you’re not going to win the game. Don’t try to play the workers’ compensation game alone. If you’ve been hurt at work call Workers’ Compensation, LLC at (877) 266-7626.That’s 877-COMPMAN.

    Benefits You Get from Workers’ Comp

    When your life just got harder because of an injury on the job, you don’t want to miss out on any help you can get.

    Sometimes, the workers’ comp system will deny your benefits altogether. Sometimes, it will grant you benefits but not at the maximum amount. Even after you’re already receiving benefits, it might cut you off too soon.

    You might discover after months of receiving benefits that you should have been getting more and now you need to argue for back pay.

    Louisiana law says you are entitled to receive:

    Another way they make this process harder is by delaying your benefits.

    The idea behind workers’ compensation is for injured workers to get help quickly, instead of getting stuck with time-consuming lawsuits.

    Instead of going up against insurance companies by yourself to make this happen, get backup from an experienced workers’ comp lawyer.
