If You’ve Been Injured on the Job: Attorney Gregory Reardon
If you’ve been injured while in the scope of your employment, it’s critical that you notify your employer as soon as possible, as deadlines apply. Workers’ compensation entitles you to certain benefits, such as a percentage of wages, payment of medical bills, vocational rehabilitation, permanent partial disability benefits and total disability benefits. Some injuries covered by workers’ compensation include burns, slip and falls, ladder accidents, work related auto accidents, back injuries, lifting injuries, occupational diseases, mental injuries, traumatic physical injuries, construction accidents, third party liability claims and repeated trauma injuries.

Answers to Your Workers’ Compensation Questions: The Law Office of Gregory Reardon
Get all the right answers to your questions about workers’ compensation from attorney Gregory Reardon. For example, if you receive workers’ compensation, can you sue your employer for additional compensation? The answer is no, but you may be able to file a lawsuit against other 3rd parties involved in the accident. This would apply in the case of automobile accidents on the job. Attorney Gregory Reardon will carefully review your case and advise you of all of your legal options.
Louisiana Worker’s Compensation Attorney
There are a lot of lawyers to choose from and most lawyers take on whatever type of case that may come to their office. Our firm handles only worker’s compensation cases. As a former Louisiana Workforce Commission Worker’s Compensation Judge and Mediator, I have worked along side many of the sitting judges and mediators. My experience as a former Judge and Mediator has provided a unique opportunity in my dealings with attornies and staff of the Louisiana Workforce Commission. At the Law Firm of Gregory Reardon LLC, we have been representing the injured worker in Louisiana since 2000.
Attorney Gregory Reardon is well noted in the legal community for his representation of injured workers in Louisiana. Mr. Reardon understands the needs of the families that he represents and places those needs ahead of his own. Illustrative of this is that at our firm we do not take a percentage of our client’s weekly indemnity checks. We believe that there is no incentive on the lawyers part to get the injured worker back to the workforce if the lawyer is receiving his client’s weekly checks and taking “his or her share” out of those checks.
Only by a long track record of representing injured workers is it possible to gain the unique understanding of the needs of the injured worker’s family. This long track record has also provided Mr. Reardon with the knowledge to deal with adjusters through all aspects of a claim to its final resolution.
The Adjuster That Is Handling Your Claim Has An Attorney And So Should You!

Over the years of representing injured workers and trying to maximize their claim, I think I sound like well, a broken record.
Workers compensation is doctor driven. If the doctor you have a chosen is not an advocate for you, then it is difficult for any attorney to get the medical treatment that an injured worker might need.
In Louisiana the injured worker is still allowed to choose his own physician in most situations. The insurance company is given that same right. The question is for the injured worker. How do you know if the physician you are about to select routinely sees patients on behalf of a workers compensation insurance provider?
Additionally, your choice of treating physician is your safety net in the sense that once you have reached maximum medical improvement, the physician does not release you to a job that you physically cannot do.
There is an unstated goal for some workers compensation providers to get the injured worker back to the job of injury. However, many times this may lead to re-injury or even termination.
- Regardless if your accident is witnessed by co-employees or not, report your on-the-job accident verbally and in writing as soon as possible. Be sure to get a copy of any written accident reports or statements. When completing the accident report, list all parts of your body that were injured.
- Anytime you are evaluated by a health care provider, provide a complete history of all of your symptoms and all parts of your body that have been injured.
- Do not post anything relative to your worker’s compensation claim on social media.
