Lafayette Industrial Accident Lawyers
Industrial and Construction Accident Attorneys
Construction accidents, oil rig accidents and other industrial accidents can cause serious injuries and death to people who are simply doing their jobs. Too often, those accidents are caused by employer negligence and defective equipment.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an industrial accident, the more serious the injuries, the more you need to discuss the accident with an experienced industrial accident lawyer. Contact the Joseph Joy & Associates law firm in Lafayette, Louisiana.
Workers’ compensation may not be enough. If your injuries are serious and you are eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, you will probably need additional compensation to cover all your expenses. If a loved one was killed in a work accident, the full range of damages will not be covered by workers’ comp. To understand all of your rights, talk to an experienced personal injury lawyer.
In the building industry and the oil and gas industry, responsibility for an industrial accident may be attributed to a variety of individuals or businesses, including the property owners, contractors and subcontractors, engineers, electricians, scaffolding companies, architects, and manufacturers of equipment. Our law firm knows how to investigate industrial accidents to identify all liable parties and present a clear case for compensation to their insurance companies, or take your claim to court if they don’t agree.
