EXPERIENCED LOUISIANA CONSTRUCTION INJURY LAWYERS FOCUSED ON HELPING YOU
Louisiana Construction Site Injury Lawyers
Construction sites are among the most dangerous workplaces in America. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that roofers, for example, suffer 57 deaths per 100,000 workers* in America.
In a typical year, workers in heavy construction face nearly a 10 percent chance** of suffering a reportable injury or losing their lives on the job. In 2017, one in five worker deaths in private industry across the United States were in construction, according to the United States Department of Labor. Excluding highway collisions, the leading causes of death for construction workers were:
- Struck by object
- Caught or compressed by equipment or objects
- Caught, struck, or crushed by collapsing structures, equipment, or material
In most cases, injured workers in Louisiana are covered by the state’s workers’ compensation insurance, but workers’ comp payments do not make up the full amount of lost earnings and other financial damages.
If you were injured while working as an employee or subcontractor on a construction site anywhere in Louisiana, call the Louisiana construction injury lawyers at Domengeaux Wright Roy & Edwards LLC.

We understand that seeking legal action can be a difficult process, particularly after already having gone through a serious injury at work and struggling with concerns about your future. 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 who is not working for the employer causes the injury. You could be able to pursue compensation through a third-party personal injury lawsuit if you were injured due to the negligence of a third party.
Pursuing Third-Party Lawsuits After an Injury
This is important 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.
As an example, 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. This could happen when an electrician improperly installs a line and it leads to an electric burn to another worker.
A tool, machine, or device may be defective due to faulty manufacturing in many industrial workplaces. This could make the manufacturer liable for any injuries caused by the device.
EXPERIENCED IN TOXIC SUBSTANCES & CHEMICAL CASES
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. Other effects may not appear for years until resulting in cancer or lung damage.
