Ensure That Your Legal Rights And Financial Future Are Protected Whether Or Not You Can Return To Work

If you are an injured plant, refinery or warehouse worker, it is first of all crucial to get medical treatment — from a doctor of your choice, not your employer's choice — and then to get skilled and dedicated legal representation from our lawyers at Schwartz Law Firm LLC.
We can help you recover your lost wages and medical expenses while seeking compensation for your full past, present and future damages and losses related to your injury. Our lawyers have over 25 years of combined experience maximizing recoveries for plant and refinery worker injuries across the state.
Asserting Your Rights At The Time Of Your Injury
If you are injured at your job, don't be pushed around by your supervisors. Make sure that you get written documentation of the incident — accident reports, witness statements, records of the date, time and manner of the injury — and report it to your supervisor.
Be prepared to stick to your guns. Employers have to follow federal safety regulations, but safety managers have been known to cover things up. They might also try to sweep your injury under the rug by claiming that they were never informed of the accident and don't know when you were hurt — or even if you were hurt on the job.
Our experienced attorneys can speak to witnesses and find out what really happened. We will collaborate with medical experts and life planning experts to establish the full and fair value of your claim. We will fight for you if you were injured in a plant or oil refinery accident in Louisiana.
