Work Injury Cases in Baton Rouge
Are you suffering from a work injury?
It doesn’t matter if you work in a corporate building at a cubicle or if you work at a chemical plant that manufactures chemical materials, you are susceptible to injury. At Joseph H. Jolissaint, Attorney at Law, we make it our goal to seek compensation on behalf of injured workers who have medical bills or other financial concerns after an accident that happened at work.
In some cases, injured workers are eligible to indemnity benefits. These are benefits that are paid monthly or weekly to an injured employee who isn’t able to return to work for more than seven calendar days. You may be able to obtain Temporary Total Disability or Permanent Total Disability as well.
