Workers' Compensation

If you have been injured in a workplace accident in Louisiana, you are protected by the state's workers' compensation process. In order to take advantage of the system, you need to report your accident to your supervisor as soon as possible. This will be extremely important later on in your claim.

It is also important that you seek medical attention as soon as possible.  Remember, although your employer or their insurer will want you to see a doctor of their choosing, you have the right to see a doctor you choose in each field of specialty unique to your medical condition.   This is your right under the law.   It is important that you have the right guidance and advise to protect this right and many others that you have by law!

You may have several questions about what you need to do next to ensure that you get the benefits that you deserve. At Rusty Savoie Attorney at Law LLC, I have extensive experience protecting the claims of injured workers. I help clients find answers to their workers' compensation questions, including:

  • Do I really need an attorney for my case? I explain how I can help you with your workers' compensation claims.
  • How do I get quality care for my workplace injury? I help you visit your own doctor to get the care you need.
  • What should I do if I am not receiving benefits? I will evaluate your case and help you determine the next steps.
  • What sort of benefits may be available to me? I help you understand the compensation that you may be eligible to recover.

I have helped countless clients recover workers' compensation benefits and I am confident that I can help you as well. I mainly limit my practice to state and federal workers' compensation matters, because I want to be sure that injured workers are getting the representation that they deserve.

As your lawyer, I will work alongside you throughout the entire process, including any appeals connected to your case. You can reach out to me for advice at any time, and I will help you understand the options available to you. I know that you are depending upon me to get you to the right doctors for the right treatments, and I take these responsibilities seriously. I am ready to work tirelessly to help you obtain results.
