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 Christiansen Law Firm are asked to review a workers’ potential accident claim, they will investigate applicable workers’ compensation laws and determine whether it is appropriate to pursue claims against entities other than the employer. From offices in New Orleans and Gulfport (by appointment only), the Firm serves clients in Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee.
