Do Not Be Afraid To File A Claim

Work-related injuries can take a toll on your life and the life of your family. In many respects, opening a claim for these injuries can seem like the wrong step. You do not want to lose your job and income because of these kinds of accidents or claims.

However, you need not fear. At Robert M. Waterwall in Ruston, Louisiana, our attorney understands these concerns. He is here to address them, calm your fears and help you get the compensation and medical treatment you deserve in these situations.

Addressing Every Concern

Below are some common misconceptions our clients have about workers' compensation claims:

  • I don't want to get fired for having a workers' compensation claim. It is against the law to be fired for filing a workers' compensation claim. Your employer needs to accommodate you as you recover. It is also important that you do not quit or resign while your claim is active — it could have an adverse effect on your case.
  • I need to keep working while injured. This is not the case. If your injury is too severe for you to continue in your position, your employer must accommodate, or you may need to stop working.
  • I'm worried about the medical treatment I need to pay for. All medical treatment pertaining to your injury will be covered by your employers' insurance. If you are given an invoice, you should not pay for it and contact an attorney immediately.
  • Workers' compensation claim representation can cost a lot of money. With us, representation for your claim will cost you nothing out of pocket. Until your claim is closed, we will never charge you for our services. You have nothing to lose consulting with our firm.
