Industrial Accidents

Oilfield, Construction and Industrial Accidents

The law firm of Hoffoss Devall represents people who work in some of the most dangerous jobs. We know that workers’ compensation only goes so far when those workplace hazards result in a major injury, permanent disability or fatality.

Our proven trial lawyers have been successful in holding third parties accountable for negligence, defective machinery or safety lapses, winning millions of dollars in compensation that the client and family otherwise would not collect.

If your loved one was injured or killed in an industrial accident, contact our Lake Charles office at 337-433-2053 for a free consultation. We have won verdicts and settlements for clients throughout Southwest Louisiana and statewide.

Southwest Louisiana Personal Injury and Workers’ Comp Attorneys

We routinely represent workers who suffered serious work-related injuries in:

  • Oilfield accidents (including offshore oil rig injuries)
  • Construction, demolition and road work
  • Refinery, factory and industrial plant accidents

We assist clients with their workers’ compensation claims for medical bills and lost wages, intervening if the employer or insurance carrier tries to deny or limit benefits. Where we can really make a difference, however, is in third-party lawsuits.

We have the experience and resources to investigate thoroughly and find culpable parties that would otherwise stay hidden. This has enabled our clients to recover additional compensation for pain and suffering, full replacement of future earnings, and comprehensive medical coverage.

We have traced liability to manufacturers of defective products, negligence of subcontractors on the same work site, and property owners responsible for creating unsafe working conditions. We have handled toxic exposures, fires and explosions, machinery mishaps, heavy equipment accidents, falls from heights and all manner of industrial accidents and injuries.
