A workplace injury would be devastating for your life and career if it were not for the Louisiana workers’ compensation program, which provides benefits to most workers who suffer an on-the-job injury or illness. However, just because workers are covered does not mean that the system is always easy to navigate. For example, many workers wonder how to go about getting medical care benefits and choosing a physician to treat them after an on-the-job accident or illness.
The Louisiana Workers’ Compensation Corporation provides injured workers with necessary and reasonable medical treatment if its investigators determine that a particular claim is indeed covered under Louisiana state workers’ compensation laws. If the worker is deemed to be covered, then benefits will be received in a timely manner. However, if the claim is denied or returned as deficient, then it may be necessary for the worker to resolve the deficiencies by resubmitting the claim, and/or filing a workers’ compensation appeal to get the claim reconsidered.
When it is necessary to file an appeal, it can be very helpful to have an experienced workers’ compensation attorney handle the curing of deficiencies or appeals. At the Law Office of John W. Redmann, we provide this kind of assistance for injured Louisiana workers. We take great pride in the work we do to help workers get money to pay for their medical care and living expenses while they are too hurt to work.
Our office provides free, no-obligation consultations to workers hurt on the job. We will listen to your story and advise you of your legal rights and options.
