Workers' Compensation

 

The firm handles claims for self-insured entities and businesses and provides all related defense services in connection with workers’ compensation claims. Both self-insured employers and worker compensation insurers want to defeat meritless work injury claims, whether during administration of a claim or before the Louisiana Worker’s Compensation Court. The attorneys at Hammonds, Sills, Adkins & Guice  utilize their years of legal experience to defend you against unreasonable and fraudulent claims. The successful defense of workers’ compensation claims requires an attorney who is  intimately familiar with both the administrative process and the applicable law. Some of the services we provide our clients include:

  • Investigation of suspicious and fraudulent claims
  • Solid guidance on potential outcome of claims
  • Effective negotiation and settlement of complex claims
  • Mediation to resolve difficult disputes in a cost-effective manner

We also assist employers to know when they are required to provide medical examinations and additional medical benefits as a result of an employee’s injuries. We assist employers to understand the benefits that they must provide; the impact of unauthorized medical treatment on a claim; methods to handle medical decisions to avoid litigation; how to develop a persuasive record; and how to develop a record for appeal in support of medical treatment decisions.
