Unfortunately, not all workers’ compensation claims are awarded to the injured workers who apply for them. Indeed, at the Law Office of John W. Redmann, we have seen numerous workers deserving of benefits get denied following their initial applications and even denied after they submitted an appeal. It is in these situations that an experienced attorney can be very useful. A workers’ comp attorney knows the ins and outs of workers’ compensation law, because he or she is constantly working in the field. For an attorney, many roadblocks and challenges are nothing more than a simple procedural process to resolve.
For someone who has never filed a workers’ compensation claim – which is virtually all injured workers – the task of applying for workers’ compensation can be daunting, confusing and overwhelming. Having to sort through legal and medical documentation is difficult enough as it is, but when you add a serious or disabling injury into the mix, it renders the process to be almost impossible.
If you are facing a rejected application for benefits, even if you have submitted several applications or appeals, whatever you do, do not give up until you have had your case reviewed by a qualified legal professional. Remember how valuable and helpful your workers’ compensation benefits will be upon approval and it will give you hope to keep pressing on.
At the Law Office of John W. Redmann, we are proud to help injured workers New Orleans and throughout the rest of Louisiana secure the workers’ compensation benefits they deserve following an injury. Best of all, your first consultation with our office is completely free of charge.
