Strong Advocacy For Injured Construction Workers
The more dangerous the job, the greater the potential for injury. Construction workers are constantly surrounded by heavy machinery and dangerous working conditions. When accidents occur, injuries can be severe and require expensive medical treatment.
At Jacqueline A. Scott & Associates, our attorneys help clients throughout the Bossier City-Shreveport area recover compensation after construction site injuries.
Compensation For On-The-Job Injuries
When construction workers are injured on the job, compensation is available through Louisiana’s workers’ compensation system. However, in certain circumstances, injured workers may have personal injury claims above and beyond workers’ compensation.
If a third party — such as an outside vendor or contractor — caused your injury, if machinery malfunctioned, or if your employer intentionally removed safety levers or disregarded safety procedures, you may be able to bring a personal injury claim to obtain additional compensation.
Common construction site injuries include:
- Back and neck injuries
- Broken bones
- Injuries due to improper safety procedures
- Injuries due to defective machinery
- Injuries due to defective scaffolding
- Head injuries caused by falling debris
- Collapsing trenches
- Ladder falls
