Workers’ Comp LLC Lawyer Stresses Report Dealing with the Denial of Claims in Louisiana
September 20, 2018 – – Greg Hubachek, an attorney at Workers’ Compensation LLC, based in Metairie, LA, wants to stress the findings of a Lockton report on claim denial in workers’ comp in the state of Louisiana. The study authors discovered that 67 percent of the claims that were initially denied were converted to accepted claims within a span of one year. It was also noted that these claims that were initially denied and then accepted later on had cost on average 55 percent more when compared to the claims that were initially accepted. The claims data came from 150 companies over a period of five years, from January 1, 2013 to December 31, 2017.
Attorney Hubachek says, “The report is a good indication that workers whose workers’ compensation claim have been denied can have it accepted. It also shows that an unsupported denial of a claim for workers’ compensation can spawn exponential liability and make an otherwise routine claim very costly.”
Workers’ Compensation LLC is a law firm with more than 25 years of experience and more than 10,000 claims handled. Greg Hubachek says, “We will fight to get you the maximum benefits you deserve. If you’ve been injured on the job, we’ll work to get your medical benefits covered, get you indemnity wage benefits in Louisiana, and help you get Social Security disability benefits.”
Workers’ Compensation, LLC wants to point out that they are a statewide law firm, which means that they can help a client with claims in various places in Louisiana. And because they have regional offices, clients will find it easy to get in touch their lawyer and obtain the information and answers that they need while they are recovering from their illness or accident.
Workers’ Compensation LLC deals with labor law in the state of Louisiana. The lawyers work to make sure that clients are able to get the benefits that they deserve. “Whether you experienced an injury on the job or you’re dealing with an ongoing illness or other health condition from work, you deserve compensation,” says Greg Hubachek. “We specialize in helping workers. There’s no reason to go through the pain and difficulty of a work-related injury alone. You deserve compensation. Whether you need assistance with the workers’ compensation process or with the Social Security Disability process, we’re ready and able to assist you.”
Workers’ Compensation LLC Attorney Greg Hubachek adds, “We will help you with your workers’ compensation and Social Security Disability claims. We don’t leave you to your own devices with a stack of forms. We are there to walk you through each step of the process.” Greg Hubachek continues, “For example, to be eligible for workers’ compensation, you’re required to report your injury to your employer within 30 days of finding out you have a work-related injury or illness. This report must be in writing. It also has to include your name and contact information and information about the injury or illness.”
After the employee’s report has been filed, the employer is then required to file a report with its insurance company. Greg Hubachek explains, “All of this takes time, and we’ll work with you to ensure the process goes as quickly as possible. If there is any resistance, we’ll be there to advocate for you so you get the benefits you’ve worked for.”
Another area in which Workers’ Compensation LLC can help is in the filing of an application for Social Security Disability. This can be intimidating for many people because Social Security has strict requirements for disability. However, Greg Hubachek says, “You don’t have to worry about your Disability Determination Services (DDS) application as our disability lawyers can handle it all. Our SSD lawyers in Louisiana know the application forms and process inside and out. We’ll help you complete the forms and provide the documentation required to help you get the maximum benefits to which you and your family are entitled.”

Unger, Gregory J. Hubachek, Daren Sarphie, Corey M. Fitzpatrick, Suzette Tagesen Murphy, Tim Benedetto, James B. Dill, Monica Ferraro, and Charles R. Davoli (of counsel).
