The newly updated services endeavor to assist work injury victims in navigating the complexities of the Louisiana’s Workers’ Compensation Act. While the law directly states that there is no need to prove negligence to obtain benefits if an employee is injured at work, the firm warns that there are intricacies involved in its actual implementation.
The legal team headed by Atty. Phillip Hendry works with their clients to devise an appropriate plan of action to protect their rights to workers’ compensation benefits. Depending on the case, the injured workers may receive recovery for lost wages, medical treatments, physical therapy, and medication costs.
Atty. Hendry has previously served as a workers’ compensation judge and as legal counsel for one of the largest workers’ compensation insurers in Louisiana. This puts him and his staff in a position to deliver unique insight into their clients’ cases.
Phillip Hendry Law recognizes that hiring an attorney is not required to settle a workers’ compensation case, but they strongly encourage consulting with the legal professional at the very least to ascertain a fair settlement. They also cite several factors that necessitate legal representation.
A spokesperson from the firm explains, “If you have a more serious injury requiring you to be off work or if you are experiencing delays in approval for treatment, unpaid medical bills, late indemnity benefit checks or receive notice that your benefits are in jeopardy of being reduced or terminated, you should consult with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney.”
Atty. Hendry offers free case evaluations aimed at determining if injured workers are receiving just treatment from their employers and their insurance providers. The initial consultations also seek to ensure that the employees are getting all the benefits they are entitled to under the state law.
