Workers' Comp

About Workers' Comp

If you’ve sustained a work-related injury as a full-time, part-time, or seasonal employee, fault is of no factor. Regardless of who is responsible for the injury itself, you are entitled to compensation under the Louisiana Workers’ Compensation Act, both for medical bills and recovery time for accidents and occupational diseases. However, the workers’ comp process can be long and complicated, especially when insurance companies or employers try to minimize or deny workers’ comp claims, which necessitates a workers’ comp attorney.

Our very own head workers’ comp lawyer, Robert Martina, worked for workers’ comp insurance carriers for close to 15 years. He knows how these companies use tricks to minimize or deny claims based on technicalities in the law, which gives him a unique advantage in Louisiana workers’ comp claims that can greatly benefit you.

Workers' Comp Cases

Improper Claim Handling

Whether as a fault of a system or an individual, claims can sometimes be misfiled or mishandled. Intentional or not, this can result in a loss of benefits or inaccurate coverage, which is a solid foundation for a workers’ comp case.

Wage-Loss Benefits

Wage-loss benefits are calculated based on the type of injury you’ve suffered. In most cases, you can receive the average of the last four weeks’ wages with some adjustments.

Medical Benefits

We can assist you in discovering what medical benefits you are entitled to, which allows us to take action if you are not receiving those benefits.

Scarring and Disfigurement

Critical or permanent workplace injuries can require additional coverage outside of workers’ comp. We can explain your options to you and assist you in taking action.
