Virtually all areas of our country have been affected by the current economy. Yet some areas experiencing economic downturns still continue to build, including the Mississippi Gulf Port region. Construction projects, new casinos, road repairs and other industrial projects continue to keep many people busy and employed. Many of these projects are the result of Hurricane Katrina.
While most employers follow safety standards to keep their employees out of harm’s way, construction and industrial accidents happen. If you have been injured at work on a construction or industrial site, a Biloxi industrial accident lawyer from our firm can help you.
