Accident and Injury

Desensitization To Construction Can Lead To Injury

In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, everyone in southeast Louisiana knows that construction and infrastructure restoration is a way of life, and probably will remain so for years to come. Although we’re encouraged by the signs of recovery all around us, it’s easy to forget that construction is an inherently dangerous business and accidents can and will happen. If you or someone in your family was injured in a construction vehicle accident, contact a knowledgeable personal injury attorney to learn about your rights and most promising legal alternatives. Call the Charbonnet Law Firm in New Orleans or Metairie for a free consultation.

Navigating The Complexities Of Contractor Liability

Accidents involving construction vehicles can present many challenges for the personal injury lawyer. Many subcontractors are small, poorly organized, and underinsured. Some major subcontractors or materials haulers come from out of state, and will have the right to remove any substantial claims against them to federal court. In some cases, the issues of negligence and causation will be so complex that we’ll need to sue several defendants to make sure that any combination of them can be held accountable for your injuries and damages.
