Louisiana Workers’ Compensation Can Provide You The Benefits You Deserve
If you are injured on the job in Louisiana, you are entitled to workers’ compensation, regardless of who is at fault. It is critical that a supervisor is informed of the injury immediately and that you seek appropriate medical attention right away. However, you do not have to go to the doctor that the company recommends. You have the right to seek medical care from the doctor of your choice.
After you have filled out an accident report and received professional medical attention, it is important that you contact an experienced workers’ compensation attorney. Frischhertz & Impastato, in New Orleans, can take care of all the legal issues affecting your situation and prepare a solid case to pursue the compensation that you deserve.

What Benefits Am I Entitled To?
You are often entitled to more benefits than workers’ comp insurance initially offers. At Frischhertz & Impastato, we have experience in obtaining the maximum compensation our Louisiana clients deserve for medical expenses, lost wages, permanent injury, retraining, and pain and suffering.
Workers’ compensation does not cover pain and suffering. If you accept benefits without speaking to a lawyer about your options first, you will forfeit your ability to collect maximum compensation.

Sometimes companies claim there was no accident that caused your injuries if no report of the incident was documented. It is crucial to document the incident and your injuries immediately, especially if you have sustained a serious injury in a construction accident, at a manufacturing plant, at a trucking center or any other type of industrial work environment.
