    What Damages Can I Get From a Workplace Accident?

    The damages you can recover depend on the route you take for pursuing compensation. Workers’ compensation benefits include payments for medical expenses and 66.66% of your lost wages.

    A lump sum payment is possible for catastrophic injuries. If you file a third-party lawsuit, you can recover damages for medical and rehabilitation expenses, lost income, lost earning capacity, and non-economic damages such as mental anguish, physical pain, and suffering.

    Can I Sue After On-the-Job Injuries?

    You may be able to sue after on-the-job injuries. State laws typically require most employers to have workers’ compensation insurance. These laws also prevent employees from suing their employers. However, sometimes it is necessary to file a lawsuit against the insurance company when it fails to pay the benefits an employee is entitled to. Additionally, a third party’s negligence often contributes to workplace accidents. If this is the case for you, you may want to file a third-party lawsuit to pursue fair compensation for your losses.

    Understand Louisiana’s Workers’ Compensation Law

    Workers’ compensation laws are complex, and many employees do not clearly understand what the state legally requires.

    Who Is Covered?

    Louisiana Workers’ Compensation Law requires most employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance. As an employee, you are most likely covered. It doesn’t matter whether you work full-time, part-time or seasonal. It also doesn’t matter how long you’ve worked for the company. Workers’ compensation coverage starts on the first day of employment.

    If you are a subcontractor or independent contractor, the state may still consider you an employee regarding workers’ compensation benefits. You may be covered under the law if your job requires you to perform manual labor or if your position is critical to an employer’s trade or business. You and your employer may find this aspect of the law confusing. A workplace accident lawyer can help determine whether you have a right to workers’ compensation benefits.

    What Are the Benefits?

    When you sustain on-the-job injuries, workers’ compensation coverage is supposed to pay out certain benefits, no matter your role in causing the accident. However, willful acts intended to cause harm do not qualify, nor do most accidents that arise out of an employee’s use of drugs or alcohol. State law requires insurers to cover all relevant and necessary medical expenses within 30 days of treatment. You get to choose your doctor. The insurance company also pays for reasonable travel expenses to and from appointments.

    If your injury prevents you from returning to work for more than a week, workers’ compensation insurance or your employer pays 66.66% of your average weekly earnings. If you can return to work in a partial capacity, with a reduced income, the insurance may provide a supplemental payment of 66.66% of the difference between your new wages and the average weekly income you received before your accident.

    Can the Insurance Company Deny Your Claim?

    Though the state’s workers’ compensation law applies to most workers, insurance companies may deny or dispute claims. If the company refuses your claim or fights a portion of it, you can ask for mediation to help resolve the dispute. If mediation fails, you must file an official dispute.

    The dispute resolution process is not an easy path and can be a lengthy process. When your claim is undergoing the appeal, your bills stack up. You also have no income if you can’t work during that time. Though these situations are often unfair, you may need to rely on other forms of assistance until your case is resolved or you can return to work.

    Can You File a Lawsuit?

    The Louisiana Workers’ Compensation Law requires employers to have coverage. At the same time, it prevents employees from suing their employers. However, you may still have a valid legal claim on your hands. If the insurance company fails to pay the benefits you are entitled to, you may be able to file a claim against the insurer. These suits are challenging. You can’t file a lawsuit when you disagree with the insurance company’s decision. You must prove that the insurer acted in bad faith when denying your claim. A workplace accident lawyer can help determine if you have a valid claim against the insurance company.

    You may be able to file a third-party lawsuit. If your accident occurred because of the negligent actions of an outside party, you could file a claim against that party. Vendors, equipment manufacturers and motorists are three external parties who may be at fault in a workplace accident. Uncovering the evidence to determine third-party negligence requires an in-depth understanding of workplace accident causes and negligence laws. You may benefit from the guidance of a knowledgeable and experienced attorney.
