Louisiana Workers’ Compensation Lawyer

There are hundreds of examples of Workers’ Compensation claim denials every day. Most of them are due to simple oversights such as missing documentation or having poorly structured claims. However, that doesn’t console an accident victim who must take time off work to recover from their injuries.

If you were hurt and had your Workers’ Compensation claim denied, you should concentrate on recovery—not filling out paperwork. Hiring an experienced Louisiana workers’ comp lawyer can help you counter your claim denial.

Filing a Workers’ Compensation Claim Denial

If you received a Workers’ Compensation claim denial, you have the right to file a written dispute with the Office of Workers’ Compensation. This will schedule a mediation conference to attempt to resolve the dispute without further legal action. However, if you are uncomfortable going through this process alone, you should contact an experienced Louisiana personal injury lawyer.

What if the OWC Continues its Workers’ Compensation Claim Denial

Your case may involve a third party, such as the manufacturer of any equipment involved in your accident. In this case, you may be able to bring a lawsuit against a liable third party instead. A Louisiana personal injury lawyer can help you determine which other parties may be at fault for your accident, and help you bring legal action against them.

Contact a Louisiana Workers’ Comp Lawyer

The more well-documented and solid your Workers’ Compensation claim application is, the better your chances are at having a smooth approval. Ill-structured cases can delay your approval and in many cases lead to denial of your claim. If you find your claim is being denied when you feel you deserve a settlement, you should contact a workers’ compensation lawyer.
