New Orleans Industrial Accident Attorneys

Representing Louisiana’s Industrial Workers. Over $1 Billion Recovered.

Industrial workplaces are dangerous. Employees must work in close proximity to heavy machinery, chemicals, and complex equipment. A single mistake can cause an accident that leaves a worker suffering a catastrophic injury that changes the course of their life or even causes their death. Severe burns, crush injuries, amputation, and toxic exposure are all possible consequences of an industrial accident. Injured workers deserve the best medical treatment and compensation to replace lost wages, plus more.

As New Orleans industrial accident attorneys, we at Clayton, Frugé & Ward know the challenges workers face when they try to recover fair compensation. We have seen too many employers and their insurance companies delay payment, offer low settlements, or even deny responsibility altogether. We stand up against these unethical practices and help injured industrial workers get the recoveries that help them build bright, stable futures for themselves and their families.

We handle industrial injury cases in New Orleans and across Louisiana involving:

  • Mining accidents
  • Drilling rig accidents
  • Warehouse accidents
  • Plant and refinery accidents

What to Do After a Louisiana Industrial Accident

The time after an industrial accident is confusing. It is also critical. What you do and say (and what you don’t do and don’t say) can have a direct impact on your ability to recover compensation for your injuries.

If you’ve been harmed in a Louisiana industrial accident:

  • Tell your employer.  
    Make sure you report any work injury to your employer quickly. Tell your supervisor or manager in writing and keep a copy for your records. If you’re a union member, you may also need to report your injury to your union representative.
  • Get medical help.  
    Always see a doctor after an accident, even if you don’t believe you were seriously injured. Tell the doctor what happened so they know what to look for. Getting medical attention early on is the best way to protect your health.
  • Follow your doctor’s orders.  
    Be sure to follow your doctor’s treatment plan, so you have the best chance of recovering. You may be asked to see the company doctor, but remember you can choose your own doctor if you are unhappy with your treatment.
  • Talk to an attorney.  
    Involving a Louisiana industrial accident attorney is the best way to protect your interests after a serious injury. If your employer, their insurance company, or any other person or company tries to interfere with your right to compensation and your ability to recover, your attorney can defend your interests and protect your well-being.
