If you or a loved one is injured on the job in Louisiana they must report their injury within 10 days of the accident in order to be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. An employer must then notify their workers’ comp insurance company, which is then responsible for reporting it to the office of Workers’ Compensation Administration.
Filing a claim is essential in ensuring that your medical expenses and lost wages are covered. After filing an injury report, victims should contact an experienced workers’ compensation attorney to determine what their legal options are. Avoid making statements to your employer’s insurer and do not sign any documents that you do not agree with or understand.
