Workers’ Compensation

The Law Office of Wolff & Wolff is experienced and will assist with ensuring your reimbursement and medical benefits. We make sure you are being paid the correct compensation in a timely manner and receive medical treatment from qualified professionals to get you back to work as quickly and safely as possible.

Medical Treatment Guidelines are used to direct and to limit workers’ access to medical treatment. You need an experienced attorney to guide you through this complex system in order to obtain the best possible medical care.  We have over 28 years of experience helping injured workers.

Rules & Regulations

There are many rules and regulations concerning workers’ compensation, and you need an experienced attorney to help navigate documents and special circumstances. The injured worker receives 66% of the gross average weekly wage, and we don’t want you to leave a penny on the table. We also help calculate supplemental earnings benefits and future lost wages to make sure you get the proper amount.

Persona Injury Icon

Personal Injury

If you have been seriously injured in an accident that occurred due to the negligence of another person, it is important that you seek the advice of a qualified Louisiana personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. Most people do not understand their rights in the aftermath of an accident, and many settle their cases for far less than they are worth.

A workers’ compensation claim is not your only legal option for collecting compensation for injuries suffered on the job. Many accidents are the result of negligence by outside parties. At the law firm of Wolff & Wolff, we will pursue all avenues for maximizing the compensation to which you are entitled.

The Wolffpack has got your back. At the law firm of Wolff & Wolff, we handle:

  • Third-party claims against those other than your employer who may be responsible for work-related injury or illness, including construction contractors or subcontractors, car or truck drivers who caused an accident while you were on the job, defective equipment or machinery manufacturers, property owners or outside maintenance companies.

  • Medical Malpractice claims – If a physician misdiagnoses your injury, you may have a claim against that physician.

  • Slip-and-fall/trip-and-fall accidents resulting from unnatural accumulations of water, or obvious defects.

  • Animal attacks/dog bite injuries.

Family Law Icon

Family Law

Family law matters are inherently emotional and personal. Whether it’s a faltering marriage, adoption, support or visitation, it’s important that you have an experienced ttorney to help you negotiate the legal system. At The Law Office of Wolff & Wolff, our attorneys provide thoughtful, professional representation.

Divorce: Louisiana is a “no-fault” divorce state. That means you will not have to demonstrate a specific harm to move forward with a divorce filing, and the court understands “irreconcilable differences.”

While the courts offer a no-fault option, fault-based divorces can also be obtained. These can be based on adultery, felony convictions, abandonment, abuse and estrangement among others.

Child Custody & Support

Family court judges make decisions about custody and placement based on the best interests of the child. The general wisdom is that children benefit from strong relationships with both parents, and courts value consistent visitation. However, when a parent poses a risk or engages in illegal or illicit behavior, the courts may restrict or revoke visitation.

Both parents are expected to provide resources for their child, and failure to meet those obligations could have serious legal ramifications. In Louisiana, child support is based on both parents’ gross income, the number of children and other important factors.

Other Family Law Practice Areas

While the majority of family law centers around divorce and child welfare, there are numerous other areas for which we provide clients with strong representation. These include:

  • Adoption

  • Parental Rights

  • Grandparents’ Rights

  • Relocation

  • Prenuptial Agreements

  • Division of Marital Assets

  • Spousal Support

  • Domestic Violence

  • Paternity Matters

Sensitivity & Professionalism

At The Law Office of Wolff & Wolff, we help guide people through the legal system to give them renewed opportunities and stability. Attorneys Bennett Wolff and Michael W. Margiotta Jr. handle family law matters with sensitivity and professionalism.

Slips, Trips, and Falls Icon

Slips, Trips, and Falls

Accidents can happen anywhere.  When you fall, slip, or trip due to an unreasonably dangerous condition, you may be due compensation.  If you were seriously injured on someone else’s land or business because the owner did not take care of the property, or did not seek repairs, you may be able to recover damages for your injuries.

The slip/trip and fall accidents can result from any of the following causes:

  • Unnatural accumulations of water or obvious defects

  • Slips on food and foreign substances in restaurants and supermarkets

  • Falls due to poor lighting or items not built to code

  • Falls down stairs that are in bad condition

  • Trip-and-falls on poorly aligned sidewalk edges

  • Retail accidents/business premises accidents

The Wolffpack will bring your case to trial if the insurance company fails to deal fairly with you in resolving your case.
