Construction Accidents

Baton Rouge Personal Injury Lawyers Helping Workplace Accident Victims

People working construction face many risks beyond their control. Even the most skilled and safety-conscious workers are susceptible to serious injuries. Performing job duties at elevated heights, near industrial equipment and with heavy materials on a busy and noisy site poses a constant accident risk.

When a severe or fatal construction accident occurs, many people assume workers’ compensation is their only source of financial recovery to deal with medical expenses and other potentially staggering costs. In fact, investigation sometimes exposes negligence on the part of someone other than the injury victim’s employer. It can be critical to contact a knowledgeable, experienced personal injury lawyer to explore and understand all legal options.

A lawsuit in no way jeopardizes your right to workers’ compensation. In fact, workers’ compensation can provide you and your family with immediate relief if your injuries prevent you from returning to your job. You can continue receiving workers’ compensation payments while you pursue your rights in civil court.
