An industrial or plant accident can result in traumatic injuries and put your livelihood in jeopardy. Injuries in the workplace can happen for a variety of reasons – including defective equipment, improper maintenance of equipment or tools, errors by supervisors or other employees, or improper storage of dangerous or explosive materials.
There are thousands of people in Louisiana who work in an industrial environment, including over 44,500 in 2017 in the extraction, pipeline and refining industries. Industrial workplaces in Louisiana can range from oil and gas refineries, petrochemical plants, offshore drilling operations in the Gulf of Mexico, warehouses, those in the logging and timber industry and on construction sites.
These are all highly-regulated and dangerous workplaces, often with many environmental hazards. However, not all workplaces are as safe as the regulations require, particularly with employers concerned about cost savings. Each job has its own risks, but industrial work has increased risk for injuries than other workplaces. Chemical plant operators, electricians, drillers, welders, roughnecks, marine mechanics, tool makers and others in industrial jobs are workers we help.
While each workplace has hazards and workers’ compensation issues – even those in an office environment – the most hazardous circumstances often happen in labor-intensive jobs with heavy equipment and hazardous materials. Lifting heavy machinery, handling dangerous chemicals and exposure to hazardous situations are a constant in these workplace sectors. An industrial accident can cause life-altering injuries. Common industrial accidents can include:
- Falling Objects
- Heavy Equipment Malfunction
- Explosions or Blast Injuries
- Chemical Burns or Inhalation
- Slips, Trips and Falls from Structures
- Burst Piping and Tubing
- Forklift Accidents

The Louisiana Work Accident Attorneys at Domengeaux Wright Roy & Edwards LLC will identify all possible sources of compensation for you after an injury in the workplace. We take pride in the legal services we provide to injured workers and their families. If you are injured at work, it is important to report the injury as soon as possible. After the injury, you generally have one year to file a workers’ compensation claim. Obtaining full compensation after an on-the-job injury or illness is vital, and our attorneys understand the process and tactics employers and their insurance companies can use to deny or discount employee claims. We understand it can be a maddening process, particularly after already having gone through a serious injury at work and the concerns about your future that follow, and our lawyers will negotiate with the insurance adjusters on your behalf.
Workers’ compensation claims are designed to provide funding for:
- Medical Bills
- Replacing Lost Wages
- Reimbursement for Miles Driven to and from Doctors Visits
- Scarring and Disfigurement
- Vocational Training If you can no Longer Perform Your Job Duties
Third-party liability exists when someone not working for the employer causes the injury. If you were injured due to the negligence of a third party, you could be able to pursue compensation through a third-party personal injury lawsuit. This is significant because workers’ compensation does not give settlements for “non-monetary” injuries like pain and suffering. There are many situations where this type of lawsuit can occur.
For instance, if a construction worker is on a job site with many other contractors, and the actions of another contractor leads to a construction worker’s injury – such as an electrician improperly installing a line and it leads to an electric burn to another worker. In many industrial workplaces, a tool, machine or device may be defective due to faulty manufacturing, which could make the manufacturer liable for any injuries that were caused by the device. Substances made by a third-party could be toxic but not labeled properly, causing workers to develop illnesses.
Many toxic chemicals used in the workplace are known to cause illnesses, injuries or death. Some toxic substances – such as lead, benzene and asbestos – lead to poisoning, asphyxiation and chemical burns, while other effects linger and may not appear for years until resulting in cancer or lung damage. These are complex cases, but employers, manufacturers of the toxins and the safety equipment that failed to protect the workers may be liable for injuries that are suffered by employees. Our Personal Injury Law Firm is highly experienced in toxic substances and chemicals.
An accident where the fault may lie not with you or your employer, but with a third party, where they have provided defective equipment, improper maintenance or an unsafe operating environment, is a circumstance where you need to seek the advice of an experienced Louisiana Industrial Accident Lawyer. Because our firm handles both workers’ compensation and personal injury claims, we have an in-depth understanding of how these laws work together.
Slips and falls, improper equipment including ladders and scaffolding, electrical burns, negligence by other employees and the improper use of chemicals are unfortunately common. If negligence is the cause of your injuries, you have the right to seek damages. Our Louisiana Workplace Injury Lawyers are here to protect your rights after a work-related injury.
