Construction Site Falls
Baton Rouge Construction Accident Lawyers
People working construction face many risks beyond their control, and 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, noisy site poses a constant accident risk.
When a severe or fatal construction accident occurs, many people assume that 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.
