There are two types of workers compensation claims. One is state and the other federal. When people suffer from on-the-job injuries, they often have questions about their rights. Most people know they are entitled to some form of compensation, but they do not know what they need to do to receive their money. Whether you were injured in an offshore accident, working in construction or operating machinery in a factory, an experienced Lafayette workers’ compensation attorney can help you receive the compensation you deserve.
Because these laws are complex, you need an experienced attorney that can help you and protect your rights. We can help you understand the types of compensation you can receive such as a physician, medical care and disability income. While you are injured, you can receive temporary total disability pay, which is 66 percent of your gross wages calculated based on your last four paychecks. If you were working and being paid for overtime, your disability pay will reflect that. Unfortunately, if you were sick or took unpaid time off work, your 66 percent pay will also reflect that. It is important to ensure that you are receiving the disability compensation you deserve. It is important to consult an attorney to help you with these important matters that effect your life.
