Workers’ Compensation Litigation
In Louisiana, the simple act of hiring an employee can result in a host of legal issues for an employer, and we are here to skillfully help guide you through these issues. Unlike some states, Louisiana mandates that all employers provide workers’ compensation coverage for their employees. Worker’s compensation claims may spring from any number of conditions, such as the physical landscape of the work environment, the tools employees use, employee work practices, or even employee interaction with co-workers. We are here to help you handle work place injury claims effectively and expeditiously. The best results in employer’s liability claims stem from aggressive and experienced handling tempered by an understanding of when amicable solution is the best course of action. Our attorneys are seasoned professionals with extensive knowledge of the particularities of workers’ comp claims and the responsibilities of the injured worker and the employer.
