This will depend on the circumstances of your particular accident and injury and how you are being treated by your employer and their insurance company. If they are approving and timely paying for your medical treatment with your choice of physician and you have a minor injury that does not require you to be off of work, an attorney may not be necessary. If you have a more serious injury requiring you to be off work or if you are experiencing delays in approval for treatment, unpaid medical bills, late indemnity benefit checks or receive notice that your benefits are in jeopardy of being reduced or terminated, you should consult with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney.
I offer a free consultation to evaluate your case to determine if you are being treated fairly by your employer and their insurance company and if you are receiving all of the workers’ compensation benefits you are entitled to according to the Louisiana workers’ compensation laws. Call my office today to schedule your consultation.
