St. Tammany Parish Workers’ Compensation Lawyer

Call (985) 306-2012 for Help Recovering the Compensation You Need & Deserve in the Northshore Area

Every year, countless workers across Louisiana find themselves injured on the job and unable to perform their regular duties. Being out of a job can mean an inability to pay for medical bills and regular living expenses. Workers’ compensation is insurance coverage that allows employees to collect benefits by following specific legal requirements. At The Tobey Law Firm, our St. Tammany Parish workers’ compensation attorney guides our clients through this process while protecting their rights.

Legal requirements necessary for workers’ compensation claims include:

  • First Report of Injury (LWC-WCIA-1) by the employer to the insurance company within 10 days
  • Medical records review
  • Medical assessment
  • Functional capacity evaluation
  • Analysis of work experience and wages

If, for any reason, a workers’ compensation claim is denied, a lawyer can help appeal the claim within one year of the date of injury. Insurance companies strive to pay as little as possible to injured victims. Our lawyer can provide you with personalized counsel while aggressively advocating on your behalf.

Hard-working individuals deserve the workers’ compensation benefits to which they are entitled. Let our team fight for you – call (985) 306-2012 to speak about your case.

Types of Benefits in Workers’ Compensation Claims

Workers’ compensation claims in Louisiana are handled by the Office of Workers’ Compensation Administration (OWCA), and claims made are considered to be “no-fault." This means that the injured employee does not need to prove that their employer was negligent to recover compensation; rather, as long as the injury occurred at work or as a result of work activities, you are eligible for damages. We fight for the full and fair compensation you deserve.

A workers’ compensation claim can include:

  • Catastrophic disability benefits
  • Permanent disability benefits
  • Temporary disability benefits
  • Job training and assistance
  • Death benefits
  • Medical care
