Skilled Industrial Accidents Lawyers in Lafayette, Louisiana

Louisiana has a growing industry of petrochemical plants and advanced manufacturing facilities. According to the Energy Information Administration, Louisiana is second in the entire United States for crude oil production and third in natural gas production. Besides being one of the country’s largest suppliers of energy products, Louisiana also hosts a number of large steel manufacturing companies. The benefits to the state in terms of jobs and opportunity is vast, but it can also cost hard-working men and women their safety.

Companies often prioritize profits over the safety of their workforce. This can manifest itself in several ways, such as disregarded safety protocols, oversight, training, and proper protective equipment, or outdated facilities that create dangerous work environments. Unfortunately, this kind of neglect can frequently lead tragic accidents and injuries, as industrial jobs carry a significant risk of serious injury or death.
