Pursuing An Injury Claim After A Serious Work Accident

The equipment used in industrial plants, shipyards, construction sites, and oil refineries can place the employees working with such equipment at risk of suffering catastrophic injuries and even death. Although workers' compensation laws may sometimes bar an injured industrial worker from filing a claim against his employer, experienced legal counsel is needed to investigate whether that bar to filing a claim applies, as well as to investigate the existence of sources of recovery other than workers' compensation benefits.

When the attorneys of The Bowling Law Firm, A Professional Law Corporation, are asked to review a workers' potential accident claim, they will investigate applicable workers' compensation laws and whether it is appropriate to pursue a third-party liability injury claim. From offices in New Orleans and Gulfport, the Firm serves clients in both Louisiana and Mississippi.

Lawyers from The Bowling Law Firm are recognized by their peers to be leaders in trial practice and complex medical litigation. Lawyers from the Firm have been selected by Super Lawyers (reserved for the top 5%), and The American Board of Trial Advocates (requiring extensive jury trial experience). The Firm carries Martindale-Hubbell's highest AV-Preeminent rating for ability and ethics.
