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 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, 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.
Deep Understanding of Personal Injuries Sustained in Job Accidents
The Firm can provide skilled representation for industrial workers and construction workers who have been injured in accidents involving:
- Forklift, crane, or other construction equipment accidents
- Scaffolding collapses, and other scaffold accidents
- Falls from the roofs of residential homes or businesses
- Heavy machinery accidents
- Electrocution accidents
- Other industrial accidents
A prompt and thorough investigation conducted by The Bowling Law Firm may expose safety violations, defective equipment, dangerous machinery, subcontractor negligence or other factors giving rise to liability. Injuries occurring as a result of industrial and construction accidents may include limb amputation, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury or other catastrophic injuries.
Maximizing recovery in construction and industrial accident cases requires extensive trial experience and skill, deep understanding of the complex medical issues that can arise, and fluency with the engineering issues on which these cases are often decided. The Firm is able to call upon Zach Christiansen’s undergraduate training in engineering at Georgia Tech to address the accident reconstruction issues which often arise in industrial and construction accident litigation. The Bowling Law Firm has all of these things, and is available to apply its skills and resources to clients in need of representation in construction, and industrial accident cases.
