Louisiana Construction Accident and Industrial Injury Attorney
Lafayette Work Accident Attorney
Construction jobsites, utilities, mills, processing plants, manufacturing plants, and other industrial worksites routinely expose workers to unsafe conditions. It is the responsibility of companies and their sub-contractors to provide safe working conditions for the employees by conducting routine safety checks of the worksite and must making sure that all equipment is functioning properly. Unfortunately, sometimes companies become lax and fail to maintain proper safety procedures, resulting in accidents and injuries.
Some of the injuries that can result from construction and industrial accidents include foot, wrist, and knee fractures, loss of limbs, back and neck injuries, loss of hearing, eye injuries, electrocution and burns. In catastrophic accidents, the brain or the spinal cord can be damaged causing severe injury and even wrongful death. If you are involved in a workplace accident, you may contact injury attorney Thomas V. Alonzo for a confidential evaluation of your specific situation.

Accident Scene Investigation
If an injury occurs, it is important to investigate the accident scene immediately in order to document conditions as they existed at the time of the accident. Worksites are active places and construction sites, in particular, can change rapidly. Vital evidence could be lost if investigators cannot view the accident site in time. Once you call injury lawyer Thomas V. Alonzo, he will go to work immediately gathering evidence, interviewing witnesses, and hiring experts to investigate the accident scene. Mr. Alonzo will determine whether the employer is at fault or if a third party might be responsible. Workers could be limited to workers compensation if the employer is at fault, but not necessarily.

Because of the extreme size and weight of the pipes, the man suffered a lower extremity injury causing nerve damage to his back and lower legs and resulting in permanent disability. Mr. Alonzo was able to get his client a settlement of $900,000.
