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.
