Workers’ Compensation

Workers’ Compensation

According to the Louisiana Workforce Commission, worker’s compensation is a legal remedy whereby an employee injured on the job may be entitled to certain benefits. The benefits can include medical care for the injury, indemnity wage benefits, vocational rehabilitation services, or death benefits. These benefits are the obligation of the employer and are paid directly to the employee by the employer or its workers’ compensation insurer. Every employer, unless statutorily exempted, is responsible for the medical care and the payment of indemnity wage benefits to any employee who is injured while in the course and scope of his or her employment.

Depending on the severity of your injuries and the facts of your claim, your benefits may include:

  • Reasonable and necessary medical care
  • Temporary total disability benefits (for time off work)
  • Permanent disability benefits
  • Catastrophic injury benefits
  • Vocational assistance (job training and education)
  • Death benefits

The laws that cover workers’ compensation are very specific and may not be favorable to a worker injured at work. But, it is the exclusive remedy an employee has against his employer. In order to collect benefits, you must report your injury, complete a claim process, and meet other legal requirements. You must report your injury to your employer within 30 days of discovering a work-related injury or illness. You should also contact an attorney immediately. The Law Offices of Tony Morrow are experienced in representing individuals in Workers’ Compensation claims and can assist you in this process to obtain the compensation and assistance that you deserve.
