Workplace injuries in Louisiana are not limited to high-risk professions. Workplace injuries can occur in an office, a hospital, mall, movie-theater, warehouse, retail store or a garage.
Some sustained injuries can be moderate and are caused by repetitive tasks that may only require a short recovery time. Other injuries are more catastrophic and can be career-ending or fatal.
It is overwhelming to find yourself in a situation where you are facing exorbitant medical expenses while also being out of work for several months. Fatal accidents leave a family not only grieving the death of a loved one, but also fearing an uncertain financial future without a primary wage earner.
Accidents that occur in the workplace create complex injury claims. Some accidents require filing worker compensation claims. Others workplace accidents are considered third-party personal injury claims. Regardless of the severity of the accident and the complexity of the claim, the attorneys at DeJean Law are dedicated to protecting your rights and maximizing the compensation you are entitled to under Louisiana law.
