According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics in 2012, the rate of “nonfatal occupational injury cases requiring days away from work was 112 cases per 10,000 full-time workers”. That’s why our workplace injury lawyer is committed to getting you the compensation you deserve. Workplace injury usually refers to discrete occurrences that happen in the course of work. Your employer’s worker’s compensation insurance will usually cover loss of income and medical expenses.
At McGinity Law Firm, we know that the costs of income and medical expenses are not all you have to deal with. You deserve max compensation for your injury. Personal injury attorney Douglas McGinity has over 15 years of experience awarding max compensation for workplace injuries. If you need a Louisiana workplace injury lawyer, stop by our Covington, LA office or call 504-581-2222 to set up a free consultation.
There are additional claims we can make to compensate you for damages caused by your injuries other than Worker’s Compensation. These include:
Injuries caused by your employer’s negligent or intentional conduct. If your employer has purposefully injured you, you might be able to sue outside the worker’s compensation system.
Injuries caused by a toxic substance. If you were exposed to a toxic substance, you may receive compensation from the product’s manufacturer. Sometimes these cases prove to be difficult because the effects of the toxic substance may not show up for years. However, our experienced lawyers are fully prepared to review the facts to prove causation.
Injuries caused by a defective product. In this case, the manufacturer of the equipment could be held liable if they failed to address known problems with the machinery.
