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