New Orleans, Louisiana, Workers’ Compensation Lawyer
Workers’ compensation laws exist to help injured workers gain the income they need when injured on the job. Challenges and questions frequently arise when filing and pursuing a claim and you’ll likely need a work injury attorney. New Orleans can rely on our expertise to know what the big picture of their situation is and how they can get the compensation they deserve.
For example, employers and administrative law judges may ask:
- Did your injury really result from an on-the-job accident?
- Are your symptoms and injuries as serious as you and your doctor claim?
- Were illegal drugs involved in the accident?
- If you have been injured or have been in pain for months, why weren’t you seen earlier, and how do you know at this point that your medical issues are job-related?
If you are considering filing a workers’ compensation claim, or have had your claim denied and would like to file an appeal, we can help. At The Law Offices of Tim L. Fields, LLC, we have handled dozens of workers’ compensation claims since 1997 and have never lost a workers’ compensation claim.
Have you been injured at work? Do you have questions regarding the successful pursuit of workers’ compensation benefits? Call Tim Fields at 504-459-9266 or toll-free at 800-653-4033, when in need of a work accident attorney in Algiers, Louisiana.
We are skilled in managing the numerous factors that can arise in a workers’ compensation claim and arguing successfully for benefits. Often, workers’ doctors disagree with doctors used by employees. If you are injured and have stopped receiving payments for prescription medications and medical care, we can handle your case. We work to get medical payments reinstated and argue for benefit payments to make up for lost income while you cannot work.
In a recent case, a client’s employer negligently locked him in an outdoor work area at the end of a workday. Our client needed to climb over the security fence to leave the premises, and while doing so, injured his knee. This client approached us because he was in need of a work injury attorney. New Orleans-based attorneys, at The Law Offices of Tim L. Fields, LLC, have taken his case.
Despite employer negligence, and the fact that the injury occurred on the employer’s property, the employer is fighting the case, claiming that it is not responsible because the employee was not furthering company business. We accepted this complicated case and are vigorously fighting for our client’s rights. For more information on our workers’ compensation lawyers, contact us for a no-charge consultation.
