How We Help New Orleans Claimants Get Fair Disability Benefits

Our law practice helps workers get the payment they deserve after a disability prevents them from earning a living. We can seek long-term and short-term benefit solutions for a wide variety of disabilities, and secure payment through Social Security, ERISA, and other benefit options.

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is a form of “social safety net” that’s designed to support workers who are left permanently disabled due to injury or illness. Part of the taxes that come out of every paycheck you get go towards this program. If you’ve fallen severely ill or been injured and you will be unable to work for more than a year, or if your condition is terminal, it’s your right to pursue a benefits claim with the Social Security Administration. But the process isn’t easy, and the chances of your initial claim being denied are very high. Legal help may be your best option for success.

Loyd J. Bourgeois has dedicated a portion of his practice to helping people just like you with the SSDI claims process, because it’s the right thing to do. Whether you need help getting started or you don’t know where to turn after being denied, Loyd will be there to guide fellow Louisiana residents through every step of the process.

Long-Term Disability Benefits

When you’ve been permanently disabled due to accident, injury, or disease, having long-term disability insurance is supposed to help. You (or your employer) have been paying a premium for your policy, hoping to never use it; unfortunately, now that you need to make a claim against that policy, it’s become a nightmare of paperwork. Stacks of forms suddenly flood your life, endless phone calls ring off the hook, unhelpful insurance company representatives drag their feet, and unnecessary delays make it a frustrating and difficult process to claim the money that you are rightfully owed and paid a premium to receive.

When the insurance company starts playing games and won’t pay out on your legitimate claim, you don’t have to put up with it. You need to contact an attorney who knows the tricks that the insurance company uses, and isn’t afraid to stand up for your rights to get you the money that you need to pay the bills. Loyd J. Bourgeois has been down this road many times before. He will take the time to listen to you, answer all of your questions, and help you fight back to get what you’re owed.

Disabling/Personal Injuries

Nobody begins the day with the thought that a life-altering accident will leave someone permanently disabled and unable to work, but that’s the reality for many Louisiana citizens every year. A car or motorcycle accident caused by an inattentive driver, an accident on the job site, or an explosion caused by defective equipment or the negligence of others can cause lifelong suffering and pain for the survivors.

When bad things happen and your ability to work has been stolen from you by a severe and medically-verifiable injury, you have the legal right to pursue compensation. You may have a long-term disability insurance plan that you can make a claim against, or you might need to file for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. You may also need legal assistance pursuing an injury claim against the person or business that caused your disability. Loyd J. Bourgeois Louisiana Disability Law is here for you when you need that legal help. Call today for a free and confidential consultation about your case at 985-240-9773.
