Law Firm Representing Construction Workers in Louisiana and Mississippi
Under most circumstances, injured workers cannot sue their employers, even when they suffer severe injuries on the job. However, if the negligence of a party other than the employer caused the accident, you may have a viable lawsuit for damages.

Construction Site Accidents
If the injury (or wrongful death) occurred in the normal course of work, benefits are limited to workers’ compensation. However, if a third party who is not in "the line of employment" was negligent, there may be grounds for legal action.
- When a security worker on a job site tripped and fell over a sprinkler system canister, we successfully sued the contractor for improper installation.
- You cannot sue if a co-worker or boss was negligent in setting up equipment. However, the manufacturer or owner of rental equipment could be liable for a ladder fall or scaffolding accident if the apparatus collapsed due to a structural defect.
- A subcontractor could be liable for workplace safety hazards' causing injuries to another crew on the same job site, while the general contractor may or may not be liable.
