Have you been seriously injured at your job? Under Louisiana Workers' Compensation Act, you may be eligible for compensation benefits for the injuries you suffered at your place of employment.
As a New Orleans workers' compensation lawyer, the Mark Ladd Law Firm, LLC helps temporarily and permanently injured employees file for workers' compensation claims, as well as disability to recover lost pay and medical benefits and to ensure employers and insurance companies comply with their legal obligation to their employees.
A Metairie Work Injury Lawyer You Can Count On to Stand Up for Your Rights
In Louisiana, employers are required by law to provide some type of workers' compensation insurance that is meant to pay for medical expenses and lost wages when employees are injured on the job. If you have been injured at work, you may be entitled to benefits under the Louisana Workers' Compensation Act.
Over the years, I have helped individuals working in several industries, including longshore workers, construction workers and employees in every industry throughout Louisiana who have been injured in accidents involving:
- Heavy lifting
- Scaffolding fall
- Shelving collapse
- Unsafe/unregulated heavy machinery
- Falling debris
- Defective equipment
- Electrical malfunctions
- Vehicle accidents
These types of accidents often result in serious and life-threatening injuries, including neck, back and spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, paralysis, limb loss and wrongful death.
I recognize how severe your injures may be, and how important it is to your recovery that you receive full and fair compensation for your on-the-job injuries. Workers' compensation laws are often complicated and can change frequently. My firm is always up to date with the most current regulations and statutes. I am also deeply knowledgeable in handling general maritime law claims involving the Jones Act, Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act and Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act claims.
I will work with you to determine if you have a workers' compensation case by learning about your injuries and the circumstances around the accident. If we are unable to resolve your case with your employer without going to court, we will pursue your claim through the administrative hearing process.
I am committed to taking your case as far as it needs to go to help you obtain the workers' compensation benefits you are entitled to by law.
