Even though your employer is legally required to ensure your safety through OSHA regulations, worksite accidents can still occur in hazardous environments such as construction sites. Construction workers deal with many potentially dangerous conditions that can result in injury from electrical shock, falling materials, equipment malfunctions, and many other incidents.
While Workers’ Compensation insurance will provide some compensation for your injuries, financial burden and emotional stress, sometimes, you will need the help of a Louisiana construction site lawyer to receive more substantial assistance.
Following an on-the-job injury at a construction site, you should immediately record details of the accident and seek medical attention. A claim should be filed with your employer to inform them of the injury and begin the Workers’ Compensation claim process. The insurance your employer provides will cover medical expenses relating to the accident and lost wages resulting from the injury if your treatment causes an absence of 1 week or longer.
You may be entitled to further compensation than what the insurance company initially offers, especially if your injury results in long-term treatment or disability. Additionally, while the rules of accepting Workers’ Compensation do not allow you to sue your employer for negligence, you may be entitled to sue any third party whose negligence contributed to your accident. A Louisiana personal injury lawyer can help you determine liability for your construction site accident and assist with filing any additional claims that can help you recover the compensation that you need.

I would recommend Mr. Mcnanmara to anyone at any time. He was the best attorney that my family and I came in contact with. About three years ago we had a very tragic, accidental death in our family and the company knew that it was their fault but of course tried passing the buck. Mr.
