Standing Up For Injured Construction Workers

If you were hurt in a construction accident, you may be able to recover more money than workers’ compensation alone can provide. If your injury was caused by a third party – someone other than your employer, like a subcontractor – a personal injury lawyer at Weems, Schimpf, Haines, Shemwell & Moore (APLC) can help you file a personal injury lawsuit against the person who caused your injury.

By filing a personal injury lawsuit, you can seek money for pain and suffering and other damages not covered by workers’ compensation. Contact a Shreveport construction accident lawyer at our firm for a consultation.
