Our Alexandria Work Injury Lawyers Fight for What's Fair

Getting seriously injured on the job is devastating. In just a few seconds, an employee's income, career, and future can be completely destroyed.

Facts About Work Accidents

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration was created in 1971 with the mission of reducing hazards in American workplaces. Because the economy was booming at the time, American workers were suffering an alarming rate of fatal injuries. Since 1971, OSHA has made significant progress in mitigating workplace hazards. However, employers still get away with harmful and unsafe practices. With only about 2,000 inspectors, millions of workplaces lack the accountability that would force them to maintain a safe work environment.

OSHA reported that 5,190 workers lost their lives in 2016. It is a frustrating reality that, if employers followed simple regulations, these deaths could be drastically reduced or eliminated. In an effort to encourage self-regulation, OSHA maintains a list of the most common violations it sees in American workplaces.

The most common OSHA citations include:

  • Fall protection
  • Hazard communication
  • Scaffolding
  • Respiratory protection
  • Control of hazardous energy
  • Ladders
  • Powered industrial trucks
  • Machinery and machine guarding
  • Fall protection training
  • Electrical hazards

Workers' Compensation & Work Injury Claims

In Louisiana, employers are required to carry no-fault workers’ compensation insurance. This means that, regardless of who is at fault, a worker may make a claim if injured while at work or while performing the duties of their job. However, workers’ compensation is not always the most effective way to get compensation after a serious injury.

Workers’ compensation only provides a limited amount of relief. When accidents are serious enough to cause major injuries, pursuing other sources of compensation is necessary. For example, suing a third-party contractor or manufacturer could allow you to get the money you need to pay for all your future treatment, which is typically required after a catastrophic work accident.

Benefits of a personal injury case include:

  • Obtain maximum medical relief by obtaining damages for current treatment and treatment needed in the future
  • Compensation for any physical and mental pain and suffering caused by the employer’s negligence
  • Compensation for a loss of the ability to make a living

Additionally, when employees hold their employer accountable, they help protect their coworkers from future harm. When an employer is forced to answer for negligence, they are also forced to make the changes needed at their worksite to improve safety.
