Do You Know Your Rights As An Injured Worker?

If you cannot work because of a work-related accident, the medical bills and lost paychecks add up quickly. Serious or permanent injuries may force you to find different employment or stop working altogether. Who pays your medical bills? How do you support your family?

The Law Office of John W. Redmann, L.L.C., advocates for injured workers in New Orleans and throughout Louisiana. We will help you obtain full wage and medical benefits through your employer and explore potential lawsuits for additional compensation. Our personal injury attorneys hold employers, insurance companies and third parties accountable for your hardships and losses suffered in the course of doing your job.

Compensation for Financial Security and Quality Of Life

Our law firm has handled work injury claims for more than 20 years, representing workers injured in many occupations and many scenarios:

  • Maritime accidents — Ships, barges, docks, offshore oil rigs
  • Construction site accidents — Falls from heights, equipment, falling objects
  • Heavy equipment accidents — Cranes, loaders, backhoes, forklifts
  • Industrial accidents — Machinery in warehouses, factories, power plants
  • On-duty vehicle accidents — Delivery drivers, utility workers
  • Fires, explosions or chemical spills
  • Electric shock injuries
  • Back injuries from lifting
  • Any other job-related accident

If you are injured on the job, you are eligible for workers' compensation. Without legal representation, your employer and the insurance company may shortchange your claims or tread on your rights. Our role is to help you document and file your claim to ensure proper medical coverage, maximum wage benefits and protection of your interests if you have any permanent disability from the accident.

You cannot sue your employer for negligence, but you may file lawsuits against third parties such as a subcontractor on a work site, a property owner, a manufacturer or another motorist. Our personal injury attorneys have the experience and resources to establish the hazardous condition, dangerous machinery or disregard for safety regulations.

In a personal injury lawsuit, you may be able to recover damages not available under workers' comp such as full replacement of lost income or compensation for pain and suffering. Keep in mind that there are time limits on filing claims, lawsuits and appeals relating to workplace accidents and that it is important to preserve evidence of a third party's negligence.
