Construction Accidents

Construction Accident Lawyers Lake Charles

Louisiana is petroleum country, where construction accidents often involve the added danger of explosions. Every year, we experience hundreds of serious injuries to the brain and spinal cord, terrible burns, and amputations. According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, one in every 10 construction workers will be injured on the job in any given year. Common causes of accidents include:

  • Falls and falling objects
  • Defective equipment
  • Crane and scaffold collapses
  • Toxic chemical exposure
  • Dangerous work site conditions
  • Electric shocks and electrocutions

At Cox, Cox, Filo, Camel & Wilson L.L.C., we work to obtain compensation for injuries and wrongful deaths occurring at construction sites.

Oakdale Area Job Site Accidents Attorneys

For many construction site accidents, workers’ compensation laws are in effect, limiting the injured party’s ability to file other claims. Nevertheless, an injured worker is free to sue a third party whose negligence led to the injury. A third party is someone who is not your immediate employer — contractors, co-workers, equipment suppliers, or other parties.
