Workers' Compensation in Louisiana

Injured at work?

If you were injured on the job, you may be able to receive certain benefits through workers' compensation. In Louisiana, workers' comp benefits include partial replacement of lost wages, coverage for medical care, death benefits, and rehabilitation services. The Office of Workers' Compensation, a part of the Louisiana Workforce Commission, regulates workers' compensation and self-insurance, and oversees compliance.

Workers' Compensation Benefits

In addition to covering medical costs, workers' compensation can provide you with a portion of lost wages. Your benefits may depend on whether your disability is permanent or temporary, complete or partial, and what your salary was before you were injured. If you were seriously, permanently disfigured, you may receive additional benefits. Physical and vocational rehabilitation benefits can also help you get back to work sooner.

How do I apply for workers' compensation benefits?

If you were injured at work, you must report your injury to your supervisor within 30 days to be eligible for benefits. While seeking medical assistance, you must keep your employer up-to-date on any changes in your condition. You may see any physician you choose, but your employer may request you see their provider as well. Your medical costs may be completely covered if your claim is approved. If your injury is compensable, you may receive benefits or a portion of lost wages starting within 14 days of notifying your employer.
