Leake & Andersson has a long standing workers’ compensation practice which makes up a significant part of our firm. Our workers’ compensation team consists of five attorneys with over 80 years of combined experience. We advise a wide number of local and national self-insured companies and insurers involved in the Louisiana workers’ compensation system. Our team devotes considerable time to counseling clients and defending their interests with respect to work-related claims. Our attorneys practice before Office of Workers Compensation judges and mediators in every judicial district throughout Louisiana and have a record of success in this area of the law.
Workers’ compensation laws in Louisiana are constantly evolving and it has been difficult for many adjusters to keep up with these changes. Such changes include not only the substantive aspects of the law, but also the day-to-day procedures that an adjuster must follow to properly handle a claim. Our attorneys closely monitor these changes and assist our clients in complying with new laws to ensure the proper handling of claims from the outset.
Our attorneys have prepared numerous publications and other materials in the area of workers’ compensation and are frequent lecturers, presenters, panel members and contributors at various workers’ compensation seminars. Additionally, members of the Leake & Andersson Workers’ Compensation Practice Group present specialized educational programs directly for its clients at the firm’s offices or at the client’s respective claim offices.
