Baton Rouge Work Injury Attorney

An Experienced Advocate for Injured Workers and Their Families

Workplace accidents — especially construction accidents or industrial accidents — can cause some of the most serious or catastrophic injuries. Depending on the severity of your accident, you could be prevented from returning to work immediately or perhaps permanently. Without a steady income, you may be worried about how to care for your family, not to mention handle all your medical expenses.

Thankfully, workers' compensation laws are designed to provide the financial stability needed to deal with your medical bills and financial concerns. At the law office of Brian D. Calvit, we will help you seek maximum workers' compensation benefits to which you are entitled to handle your expenses. Our Baton Rouge work injury lawyer handles all types of workplace injuries, including:

  • Back and neck injuries
    • Herniated disks
    • Slipped disks
  • Spinal cord injuries
    • Paralysis
    • Paraplegia
    • Quadriplegia
  • Head injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Knee injuries
  • Serious burns
  • Amputations/loss of limb
  • Repetitive stress injuries such as carpal tunnel
  • Illnesses and injuries caused by chemical exposure or toxic spills

Sometimes, a workplace accident may not directly result in a physical injury but instead aggravate a previous injury or pre-existing medical conditions. In such cases, you may still be eligible for workers' compensation. Our attorney can help you determine whether your case meets the criteria to make a claim for workers' compensation.

Do Psychological Injuries Qualify for Workers' Compensation?

In addition to physical injuries, the Louisiana Workers' Compensation Act provides benefits for those who cannot properly do their jobs due to psychological conditions such as:

  • Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Anxiety disorders caused by stressful work environments

Unlike physical impairments, mental injuries can be difficult to prove simply because they can be hard to diagnose, much less to prove they are the result of extraordinary stress at work. We will thoroughly investigate your circumstances and work with the appropriate psychological experts, if necessary, to protect your workers' compensation rights.
