Getting injured at work in or around Metairie poses great difficulties for the injured worker. The insurance company will use anything they can, an innocent misstatement, a delay in reporting the accident, or a gap in time between the accident date and the date they receive medical treatment in order to defeat your claim. The more accurate and timely you are with reporting your accident and injuries, the more likely your claim for workers’ compensation benefits will be accepted. That goes for both the information you report to your employer and what you report to your treating physician(s).

Louisiana law gives you the right to choose your own doctor in any area or specialty of medicine. Rarely do employers or workers’ compensation adjusters tell injured workers that. Rather, they will send you to a company doctor who will almost certainly say you’re fine and send you back to work.

Call us now at (985) 624-9393 to discuss your workers’ compensation claim!

Although you may want to be a “team player” and not complain, hoping that your symptoms will resolve on their own, your employer and their insurer will almost certainly use that against you. It is your burden to prove that you were injured on the job. Your employer and their insurance company will try to cast any doubt they can on your version of the events. They will put your credibility at issue.

Consequently, it is absolutely necessary that you contact an experienced workers’ comp attorney in the Metairie LA area immediately after being involved in an accident on the job. And at The Law Firm of Shawn Murray, workers’ compensation law is what we do.

These are the steps you need to take when you have sustained a serious accident on the job:

  • Receive medical treatment immediately by presenting to the closest ER or Urgent Care;
  • Follow all of the instructions given to you by the ER/Urgent Care physician; and then
  • Contact an experienced workers’ comp attorney in order to discuss your claim.
