Louisiana Orthopedic Injury Attorneys Who Will Fight for Your Rights to Compensation

No matter what your case, injury or situation, if you’ve experienced an orthopedic injury while on the job, you deserve to know your rights.

But how can you know what your rights are regarding your orthopedic injury? You need a knowledgeable attorney that can educate and inform, as well as fight to protect those rights in court.

You need GCJ Law on your side.

Louisiana Orthopedic Injury

Orthopedic injuries can be difficult to diagnose, as their root cause may not be as immediately apparent. Unlike broken bones or burns, you can’t outwardly see the majority of orthopedic issues.

Often, even expensive imaging such as CT scans and MRIs fail at uncovering what’s wrong with you. And since diagnosis isn’t overtly obvious, your insurance company may refuse to pay for your diagnosis and treatment, meaning you either pay out of pocket or waste precious healing and rehabilitation time waiting to see if treatment will be approved.

Your workplace accident can lead to all sorts of injuries and trauma, both physical and psychological, and you deserve compensation for your medical bills, as well as time off of work because of your injuries.

If you or a loved one has an orthopedic injury as the result of an accident at work in Louisiana, contact the team at GCJ Law to learn more about your rights and how we can help advocate on your behalf.

Common Causes of Orthopedic Injuries

Despite following mandatory safety precautions and regulations, accidents still happen in the workplace. Some common causes of workplace orthopedic injuries include:

  • Slips & falls
  • Tripping
  • Falls from high places
  • Automobile accidents
  • Crushing
  • Machinery malfunctions
  • Overuse

No matter how you were injured, you may be entitled to compensation for your expenses if your injury arose from, or was the direct result of your employment.

Common Types of Orthopedic Injuries

Orthopedic injuries often go undiagnosed because they’re unseen and can’t always be traced to a specific incident. However, an injury to your musculoskeletal system can cause constant pain, discomfort, and inability to work or participate in normal activities.

Some common orthopedic injuries resulting from work include:

  • Ankle Sprains
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Carpal tunnel
  • Cubital tunnel
  • Meniscus Tear
  • Tennis elbow
  • ACL tear
  • Shoulder dislocation
  • Rotator cuff tear
  • Stress fracture
  • Wrist fracture
  • Strained back
  • Slipped discs

If the source of any of these injuries can be traced to your employment, contact GCJ Law today to learn more about your rights.

Treatment for Orthopedic Injuries

For workplace orthopedic injuries, any treatment you receive can and should be covered by workers’ compensation insurance. Our team can help you learn what types of treatment qualify for compensation, and give you resources for receiving treatment.

Some types of orthopedic injury treatment that may be covered include:

  • X-rays
  • CT scans
  • MRI
  • Ultrasound
  • Chiropractic care
  • Orthopedic consultations
  • Physical therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Outpatient surgery
  • Inpatient surgery
  • Pain injections

You deserve to receive proper treatment for your injuries. Let the team at GCJ Law help you understand your rights and get the help you need.
