Skilled Representation At Any Point In The Louisiana Workers' Comp Process

The steps required to file a workers' comp claim properly, get necessary medical treatment paid for and receive checks for lost wages are intimidating for most people. Attorney Maschek will advise you and protect your rights from day one or fight for your benefits if you have run into problems dealing with your employer or insurer. It is important to know that:

  • Problems involving herniated and dislodged disks, nerve impingement or any spinal cord injury are often extremely challenging to diagnose.
  • Some neck and back injuries can be treated effectively with a few doctor visits, medication and possibly physical therapy. Others ultimately require neck or back surgery, and some cause permanent disability.
  • These complex issues often create disputes over the seriousness of the injury, the individual's ability to work, doctors' opinions and the right course of treatment.
  • Your decision to hire a proven workers' comp lawyer could make a critical difference in your recovery and your family's financial well-being.
