Employees in any industry should be able to expect safe conditions at their workplace. Unfortunately, that is not always the case, and some industries are more predisposed to having on-the-job incidents than others. For instance, construction workers and factory employees are typically at a higher risk of being hurt while they’re at work than the average officer worker. Such was the case with Yancy J. Landry, a Louisiana man who has filed a lawsuit against Energy Logistics Inc., after allegedly being injured at work.

The Case

Landry alleges that when he transported a shipment to the Energy Logistics Inc. dock, a forklift operator unstrapped a jack and knocked a pipe onto his foot, injuring him. He says that after that incident, he sought treatment at an emergency room for injuries to his right foot, and claims that the cause of his injuries was Energy Logistics Inc.’s failure to hire competent workers and equipment to unload the shipment he had transported there.

Energy Logistics Inc. is also accused of failing to follow safety procedures, failing to observe Landry’s whereabouts, and failing to provide a safe place to work. Landry is seeking an unspecified amount in damages for physical pain, mental pain and suffering, loss of life’s pleasures, loss of enjoyment, permanent disabilities, and loss of future earnings. No further details are currently available regarding the nature of Landry’s injuries.

How Lawyers Help Workers Compensation Cases

Getting legal counsel involved when you’re dealing with a case of workers’ compensation is extremely helpful. Not only will they have more experience dealing with insurance companies and liable parties than the average injured person will, they also know the best ways to go about seeking the most compensation available for you.  Workers compensation lawyers have seen plenty of different cases involving injuries that have happened at their clients’ workplaces, and will be able to advise you on what you’ll need to do to get the compensation you deserve.

If you’re ever injured at work, always make sure you seek medical attention first, and as soon as you can, report the incident to your employer and file a claim—then contact a lawyer.
