Year-Round Construction Makes For Year-Round Construction Vehicle Accidents
Led by Lake Charles, Calcasieu Parish is growing, with large construction projects going on year-round. While the growth is good for the local economy, it also means that roads and highways throughout the area carry an increasing number of commercial vehicles delivering products and materials. The number of truck accidents involving large trucks will likely continue to rise right along with the growth of our communities.
If you were involved in an accident involving a dump truck, construction vehicle or delivery truck anywhere in South Louisiana, you can trust The Townsley Law Firm in Lake Charles to help with your litigation needs. We are lifelong residents of this region. This gives us an in-depth knowledge of local insurance settlements and case law regarding case preparation and jury verdicts, which we will apply in the event your case proceeds to trial.
Are You An Injured Construction Worker?
In most cases, workers are eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits after suffering heavy equipment injuries at construction sites in Louisiana. In most workplace accident cases, this will mean you forfeit the right to recover additional compensation for pain and suffering from your employer.
However, if your accident was the result of negligence on the part of an equipment manufacturer, the property owner, another employee or a different negligent party, you may also be eligible to seek additional compensation through a third-party lawsuit. We offer a free consultation to review your case and explain your legal options.

- Dump trucks, excavators, backhoes and other construction vehicles
