Workers’ compensation is a legal process where an employee who is injured on the job may seek certain benefits, including medical care for the injury, vocational rehabilitation services, and indemnity wage benefits. The Law Office of Robert B. Dunlap provides representation for clients seeking workers’ compensation. If you were injured on the job, contact Robert Dunlap today.

Common work-related injuries you may seek compensation for:

  • Diseases such as lung cancer, if contracted by exposure to toxins at work.
  • Injuries resulting from the physical and mental strain caused by extreme and sudden work-related stress or increased work duties.
  • Preexisting conditions that the workplace aggravates or accelerates, such as a back injury.
  • Injuries caused during lunch hours, breaks, and work-sponsored activities.
  • At-work injuries caused by company facilities or equipment.

In Louisiana, most employees are covered from the day they start employment. Full-time, part-time, minors, and seasonal employees are eligible for workers’ compensation. At the Law Office of Robert B. Dunlap, you can obtain knowledgeable services from a Shreveport workers’ compensation attorney to understand your options for pursuing compensation.


If you are injured at work, the first thing to do is report the injury to your employer and complete and file a claim form.

Mr. Dunlap possesses more than 30 years of experience and uses creative problem-solving techniques to navigate the Louisiana legal system. With a trusted Shreveport workers’ compensation attorney, you can get dedicated representation to handle a variety of issues with your workers’ compensation case.

Typically, claims arising from car accidents focus on proving the negligence of the driver. Negligence is defined as the failure to exercise reasonable care while driving. Determining who is responsible for the accident is important for seeking compensation. If a reckless or negligent driver caused the accident, he or she is liable for your injuries. A reckless driver is one who intentionally drives in an unsafe manner with no regard to the probability of an accident.

Common factors for determining a negligent driver:

  • Failed to signal
  • Failure to use the median, shoulder, or an emergency lane to pas
  • Disregarded weather or traffic conditions.
  • Drove above or below the posted speed limit.
  • Disobeyed traffic signals or signs.
  • Drove under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding above the posted speed limit or driving too fast for the current weather and traffic conditions.
  • Excessive or improper lane change, including failure to signal intent or to check that the lane change can be accomplished safely.

In some cases, driver error does not cause the accident. A mechanical defect of a car or an improperly maintained road, for example, may lead to an accident. In those cases, it is important to investigate the incident to seek compensation from those responsible, such as manufacturers or government entities. Mr. Dunlap possesses more than 30 years of experience and serves Shreveport.
