We are proud of our 15 years of service, but more than that, we are proud to stand for client service. Our objective is to make a real difference in clients’ lives and offer significant help to those who have been injured. By offering legal advice, support and representation, we can help clients pursue compensation for injuries.
Irpino, Avin & Hawkins Law Firm specializes in personal injury and property damage claims, but we also have extensive experience in organizational claims, including:
1) Social security claims
People who are seriously injured and cannot return to work because of their injuries are sometimes able to apply for benefits through Social Security. While all workers pay into Social Security, getting benefits when you are injured is not so simple. Many first-time applicants with legitimate claims are denied each year.
Irpino, Avin & Hawkins Law Firm helps injured workers navigate the Social Security claims process. We can help you secure medical evidence of your disability, appeal denials of benefits, and apply for the first time.
2) Workers’ compensation
Workers’ compensation is insurance paid by employers on behalf of their workers. When workers are injured on the job, this insurance is supposed to provide benefits for workers who are not able to return to work immediately.
As a worker compensation law firm in New Orleans, however, Irpino, Avin & Hawkins Law Firm has first-hand experience that this insurance often fails workers. Our worker compensation attorneys in New Orleans have worked with many legitimately injured workers denied their full benefits. Our attorneys aggressively fight on behalf of workers, seeking fair treatment in all cases.
3) Insurance claims
Many policyholders think that if they are injured or have an insurance claim, their insurer will pay. This is not always the case. Insurance disputes, delays and even accusations of fraud are not uncommon.
