This website provides general information about Louisiana Workers Comp cases, and answers questions like:

If you are temporarily unable to perform any type of work, you should receive Louisiana Workers Compensation Temporary Total Disability benefits of up to two-thirds of the income you were earning at the time you were injured.

Your first payment should come to you within fourteen days of your injury. The Louisiana Workers Comp insurance company may be required to pay you a penalty payment if your benefits are late.

If you can go back to work, but you injury makes it so that you’re unable to make at least ninety percent of the income you were earning before the accident, you may qualify for Supplemental Earnings Benefits - also called “SEB”.

These benefits should be two-thirds of the difference between your average weekly wage and the amount you can earn now.

You may also qualify for Permanent Partial Disability benefits even if your injury did not cause you to miss significant time off of work.

Permanent Partial Disability benefits pay guaranteed minimum Louisiana Workers Compensation income benefits for certain types of benefits, such as injuries to you arms or legs, hearing or vision loss, or injuries to your internal organs.

Some people who have a Louisiana Workers Comp case find that their benefits may be changed to Permanent Total Disability benefits after a Louisiana Workers Compensation Judge concludes that they are perform any type of work for the rest of their life.

Many people who receive Louisiana Workers Compensation benefits decide to enter into an agreement to settle their Louisiana Workers Comp case and receive a lump-sum cash payment which compensates them for their future medical costs, permanent disability and future indemnity benefits.
