Covington Workplace Injury Attorneys

When workers suffer serious injuries on the job, their immediate thought usually is to submit a workers' compensation claim. There are situations in which an injured employee can make a personal injury claim in addition to collecting workers' compensation. These include incidents where an injury was caused by the negligence of a third party, such as an independent contractor, or by a defective tool or a piece of equipment.

We work with injured workers from a broad range of industries, offshore refineries and other maritime workers, construction workers, industrial employees, laborers, law enforcement officials and office workers. Talk to us today.

The knowledgeable personal injury lawyers at The Truitt Law Firm will review the facts involved in your workplace accident to determine if filing a personal injury claim also makes sense. We add value to our clients' cases by maximizing the amount they recover. If we review your workplace accident and do not feel it warrants a personal injury claim, we'll tell you as much. If the facts show that you do have a strong case, we will represent you on a contingency basis, meaning you will only pay attorney fees if we obtain a recovery for you.

Our law firm also has a strong track record of defending insurance providers, self-insureds and employers in personal injury claims. Our thorough knowledge of Louisiana law in this area, combined with our experience handling both sides of these cases, allows us to accurately anticipate the opposing counsel's strategy and develop a strong counterargument.
