Workers’ Compensation Services and More in New Orleans, Louisiana

Workers’ Compensation

Injuries can happen anywhere and they can have a great impact on your life. When you cannot work, it is hard to make ends meet. If you have been injured while at work, you have rights. You have the right to see a physician of your choice for your injuries. If you cannot work, you may have the right to be paid workers’ compensation benefits by your employer.

When you have an on-the-job accident that prevents you from working, it is important that you get the medical treatment you need and that your company pays you the full amount of workers’ compensation benefits that you are due. Your employer may owe you as much as 2/3 of your average weekly wage.

If you are able to return to work, however, you are unable to earn more than 90 percent of your pre-accident earnings, you may be entitled to be paid 2/3 of the difference between the amount you can earn after your accident and the amount you earned before your accident.

We are committed to standing with our clients at every stage of the case. We do encourage our clients to come see us often, as we enjoy spending time with our clients and helping them understand their situation.

As experienced disability attorneys, we know how to further help you if you become disabled and need to apply for Social Security Disability or SSI benefits.

We have been handling compensation cases for more than 35 years.

Social Security Disability and SSI

If you are sick or injured and unable to work, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability Benefits (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). If you have been working and contributing to Social Security from your paycheck, you may be insured for Social Security Disability (SSD). This means that if you become disabled before you reach your retirement age, you can collect your Social Security benefits before you reach retirement age. If you are not insured for SSD but you are still disabled and you qualify financially, you may be entitled to SSI.

If you are approved for Social Security Disability, then you will become eligible for Medicare within a few years of being declared disabled. If you are approved for SSI, then you are eligible for Medicaid. Some people are eligible for SSD and SSI, and thus they become Medicare and Medicaid eligible.

Cases for Social Security and SSI benefits are complicated and you need an attorney with whom you can meet to discuss your situation. It is important that you have a good understanding of your case. We really like to sit down with our clients and help them understand their situation. We feel there is no substitute for meeting face to face with our clients and their families to work on cases.

Personal Injury Claims

Personal injuries can happen anytime anywhere. A driver may be driving carelessly and cause an accident. People are sometimes injured when a property owner or business fails to keep its premises reasonably safe.

If you are injured due to the negligence of someone else, you may have rights. It is important that you seek medical treatment if you are hurt.

If you try to handle your personal injury alone, you face many challenges. The insurance company has many experienced people who handle claims for a living. You will find yourself at a disadvantage if you deal with the insurance company’s paid professional claims adjuster on your own. In order to maximize your chances of being paid a fair sum for your injuries, you need an experienced attorney to represent you.

You need to make sure you get medical treatment if you are hurt. We help coordinate clients’ medical treatment to make the process simple.
