There is only one answer to this question – yes, you do need an attorney for your workers’ comp case, for many different reasons. You have rights, and it is extremely important that you have someone working to protect you as things move forward.Many clients who come to see me are afraid of the consequences for filing a workers’ compensation claim. They think that their employers will fire them or otherwise punish them in some way. Louisiana law protects injured workers, and your employer can not fire you for filing a claim.You may also be concerned about the costs of hiring an attorney to handle your claim. I handle these cases on a contingent-fee basis, which means I get paid only when and if I can settle your claim.
How I Can Help With Your Claims
As your lawyer, I will assist you with several different aspects of your workers’ compensation claims, including:
- Finding the right doctor to treat your injuries
- Helping you obtain the workers’ compensation benefits that you deserve
- Protecting your claims in any appeals that may be connected to your case
You may have friends who have been injured while working and they might be telling you what you should do to get your benefits. You need to understand that each injury is different, and your injury might require more extensive treatment before you will be able to return to work.
I will help you understand the specific options that are present in your case. I will help you file your claims to recover benefits, and if any issues arise, I am ready to fight on your behalf. You can feel confident that I will be working tirelessly throughout the process to get you the care and benefits you are entitled to by law.
