If you live in the state of Louisiana, you’re probably aware of the fact that there are both federal and state laws meant to protect workers.
But even with these laws in place, you know one thing to be true: You could still be involved in an accident at some point.
If you’re injured on the job, there’s nothing more important than your health and well being. For this reason, you must not wait to receive medical treatment.
At some point, as soon as possible, you want to learn more about workers’ compensation and your other legal rights.
For example, as long as you were injured on the job, you should be able to file a workers’ compensation claim. With this benefit, you can receive payments until you are able to return to work.
What if you were injured by a third party, not your employer, while on the job? This is common in many industries, such as construction. In this case, you may need to file a personal injury lawsuit. This makes it possible to collect compensation for lost wages, medical bills, and other costs related to your injuries.
At our law firm, we know how difficult it can be to file a workers’ compensation claim. There are many details to consider, not to mention the fact that many claims are denied.
Fortunately, we know the ins and outs of both workers’ compensation and third party claims. Over the years, we have helped many people receive the compensation they deserve after being injured on the job. It’s not always easy, but you must do whatever it takes to protect your legal rights.
