Workers’ Compensation

Lake Charles Workers’ Compensation Lawyers

Everyone knows that workers get hurt on the job, and we have a system of workers’ compensation to help those injured in workplace accidents. But did you know that:

  • You don’t have to be at your job site for your injury to qualify.
  • Getting sick from chemical exposure qualifies as an injury.
  • You can choose your own doctor.

There are many twists and turns in Louisiana workers’ compensation law and how it is administered. If you have been injured, you may need an experienced workers’ comp lawyer like Cox, Cox, Filo, Camel & Wilson L.L.C. to defend your rights.

Lake Charles Workers’ Compensation Attorneys

Louisiana workers’ compensation law pays disability benefits for both temporary and permanent injuries. In most cases, benefits equal two-thirds of the employee’s average weekly wages. In permanent, total disability, benefits may be paid for life.

The law is supposed to protect workers, but it often wrongly denies benefits. Oftentimes, workers need an experienced workers’ comp attorney like Cox, Cox, Filo, Camel & Wilson to stand by them and insist that proper compensation is made.

Also Defending the Rights of Health Care Providers to Get Paid

At Cox, Cox, Filo, Camel & Wilson L.L.C., workers’ compensation cases can have two dimensions:

  • The worker who is hurt on the job and is entitled to compensation for his injuries
  • The medical provider or health care worker who treats that worker, but is unable to get proper reimbursement for care

Standing up for underpaid medical providers has become an important practice area for us. If your practice, hospital, or clinic is having difficulty obtaining reimbursement for workers’ comp cases, drop us an e-mail or call us.
