Under the Louisiana Workers’ Compensation Act, when you’re an employee hurt at work in our state, you are entitled to these benefits:
You should begin receiving your benefits quickly. Medical care should start immediately. Lost wages payments shouldn’t take longer than two weeks.
That is part of the deal that workers’ compensation strikes between workers and employers: you get fast help when you’re injured on the job. In exchange, your employer doesn’t get sued.
Employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. It gets complicated when the insurance company and employer try to save money.
They might grant some but not all of your benefits.
They might be late in sending your weekly payments.
They might try to rush you back to work and stop your benefits before you’re ready.
A workers’ compensation lawyer can handle all of these situations and more.
