Maximizing Your Benefits When Serious Work-Related Injuries Occur
A workplace injury can seriously impact your life. It can result in the need for hospitalization and extensive medical care. Permanent disability and injuries can prevent you from being able to return to work. The pain you suffer can be severe. And as the bills pile up, it can place tremendous financial and emotional stress upon the family.
Louisiana has a workers’ compensation system in place that allows for you to recover compensation concerning your injuries. It allows you to receive payments concerning medical expenses, wage loss, and for temporary or permanent disability.
Baton Rouge attorney Brian D. Calvit focuses solely on helping injured workers recover compensation. His experience in providing legal guidance in workers’ compensation cases goes back to 1981. His goal is to maximize the benefits you receive regarding your workplace illness or injury.
Dealing With Serious Workplace Injuries
Certain injuries result in lifetime consequences. Such injuries are common in the construction trade and in factories. These injuries can negatively impact the quality of your life and perhaps even shorten the time you have left. Family members may have to quit their own job to help care for you. You may have to follow through on a lifetime of medical care and rehabilitation. It may be necessary to pay for a number of other outside services to take care of your daily needs. Common catastrophic injuries at the workplace can include:
- Spine, neck and back injuries involving full or partial paralysis
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Burn injuries and permanent scarring
- Loss of vision or hearing
- Injuries to the internal organs
When suffering such injuries, it is important to have a lawyer on your side who understands the workers’ compensation system, and who can explain to you all of your legal options. Brian Calvit will spend a significant amount of time and resources reviewing your case and exploring every avenue for recovery. He will work one-on-one with you to help provide you and your family financial stability. There is no workers’ claim too complex for him to handle.
