You may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits if you have been hurt on the job and can’t work; tested positive on a post-accident drug screen; were involved in a motor vehicle accident while working and were found to be at fault; developed carpal tunnel syndrome as a result of your work activities; or were exposed to chemicals on the job that made you sick.

Guide To Your Workers’ Comp Claim
Here are some things you should know about Louisiana workers’ compensation cases — facts that Laurie W. Maschek has known for years and uses to your advantage when dealing with insurers:
- You are entitled to retain your own physician.
- You are permitted to select your own psychiatrist or any specialty doctor.
- You are not supposed to incur any expenses as a result of your workers’ comp claim.
- You can even apply for repayment of any expenses, such as mileage reimbursement.
- You do not have to suffer from the falsehoods adjusters use to avoid releasing workers’ comp benefits.
If you have been involved in an accident at work, be sure to seek immediate medical attention and inform your supervisor as soon as possible. Injuries must be reported within 30 days to ensure eligibility for Louisiana workers compensation benefits.
Your employer will then notify an insurer and the Office of Workers Compensation Administration (OWCA). Your employer may arrange for a separate and independent medical examination, at the company’s expense, to determine if your injury qualifies you for benefits.
If your injury is deemed compensable, you may be entitled to medical coverage and financial compensation for lost wages. Eligible dependents may receive workers’ comp benefits or secondary education scholarships when an injured party is permanently disabled or killed in a work-related incident.
You receive our lawyer’s quality legal services on a contingency fee basis. You owe no attorney fee unless we win your case — and the benefits to which you are entitled.
