Louisiana's Workers' Compensation Laws
When you are injured at work, you have the right and responsibility to report the injury to your employer. Your employer must then give you appropriate compensation to cover the injury, medical bills and lost wages during recovery. Unfortunately, there are times that employers are hesitant to comply with this requirement. In these cases, you may need a lawyer to help you seek the appropriate damages.
According to the Louisiana Workforce Commission, most employees in Louisiana are covered by workers' compensation laws from the day they start employment regardless of whether or not they are minors, full-time, part-time, or seasonal. Sometimes, subcontractors and independent contractors are also considered employees if they are involved in the employer's trade.
All employers in the state are required to have workers' compensation or to be approved to self-insure. The compensation laws cover mental and physical injuries from accidents or occupational disease that occurred in the workforce.
