Baton Rouge Workplace Accident Attorney
Have you been injured in a workplace accident?
You deserve to work in a safe environment and employers are responsible for minimizing risks. Unfortunately, an accident can occur at a moment’s notice. Oftentimes, workplace accidents can be caused by many factors out of the employee’s control. This might include defective equipment or hazardous materials, or negligence from an employer or co-worker. An injury can also occur if the employee is making repetitive movements or lifting heavy items without proper rest.
Workers’ compensation typically covers most on the job injuries, however when accidents are caused by the negligence of an employee of another company, you may be able to pursue further compensation for pain and suffering. By discussing your case with a Baton Rouge workers’ comp attorney, you can get a better idea of how to approach your claim.
Why You Need to Seek Compensation for Your Injuries
Your injuries may be causing you intense suffering, not only physically, but also emotionally and financially. You may be forced to take unpaid time off from work, resulting in a loss of wages, or have extensive medical bills. It can be a nightmare if you are struggling with these issues on your own.
Some examples of workplace injuries might include:
- Spinal cord injuries, disk injury to the neck or back
- Slip-and fall
- Back injuries
- Brain injuries
- Cardiovascular conditions
