Workers’ Compensation

A serious work-related injury can negatively impact your health and your ability to earn a living. You owe it to yourself and your family to get all of the medical care and workers’ compensation benefits you need to recover.

After a workplace accident, the first thing you should do is get medical care. Report your injury to your employer. Then, get the advice of an experienced attorney as soon as possible. Some people think that they don’t need legal help in a workers’ compensation case. But trusting the system to approve necessary medical care and rehabilitation services is a mistake. With little notice, your employer’s insurance company may try to:

  • Cut off your medical care
  • Limit your right to select the doctors who treat you
  • Limit the disability benefits you receive
  • Fail to properly calculate your wage loss
  • Send you back to work before you are fully recovered

The workers’ compensation attorneys at Harmon, Smith & Vourvoulias can assist you throughout the process and protect your rights. If the workers’ compensation insurance company tries to steer you to one of its preferred doctors, we can help you find a physician who can objectively evaluate your injury and provide the treatment you need. If the insurance company makes you a lump sum settlement offer, we can advise you whether you should accept it or not.

We understand the complex rules and disability ratings of the Louisiana workers’ compensation system. We will represent you through all stages of the process to ensure that you get all of the care, benefits, and compensation you deserve.

Don’t wait until your claim is denied or your benefits or medical care are cut off. Contact us today for a free consultation.
