Do I Need An Attorney After a Construction Site Accident?
When injured on a jobsite, a construction worker’s first action should be seeking immediate medical attention and reporting the accident to their employer. Once proper medical attention is administered and the claim is in the hands of the Office of Workers’ Compensation, the injured worker can begin recovery. Sometimes, the insurance offered by Workers’ Compensation isn’t enough to cover medical costs and the help of a Louisiana personal injury attorney is needed to speed up or complete the claim.
When should I seek the help of an attorney?
If your claim is denied by the insurance company, you may file a written dispute over the denial, after which, the case will be brought into mediation. However, if you disagree with the denial, or feel your case is being mishandled, a Louisiana personal injury attorney may be able to help rectify your issues.
You may also be eligible to file a Louisiana personal injury lawsuit against a third party if your injury was the result of negligence by another person or company besides your employer.
