Injured in a Construction Accident?


New Orleans can Count on GCJ Law to fight for their rights

Construction workers have it rough. You work in one of the most dangerous industries in our country, and yet our infrastructure would crumble without you. You literally put your life on the line to build indispensable infrastructure, homes, commercial properties and more.

The construction industry sees thousands of injuries within a year, with on-site accidents at worksites accounting for an alarming 1 in 5 workplace fatalities in 2016.

When the nature of your job is dangerous, you count on proper safety policies and procedures to help keep you safe. Unfortunately, construction accidents still happen, and rules, precautions are not always followed. Negligence and oversight happen, as does equipment failure and human error. All of which can result in catastrophic life-altering injuries (or worse).
