Catastrophic injuries often occur as the result of activities covered by maritime law, such as Gulf of Mexico oil exploration and production and commercial and pleasure boating activity, medical malpractice and defective drugs and medical devices. In a catastrophic injury claim, long term care, future hospitalization and surgery, prosthetic devices, pain and suffering, must all be taken into account to pursue the compensation to which you are entitled. We have tried catastrophic injury cases throughout the state of Louisiana in virtually every parish and state district court, state court in Mississippi and Alabama, as well as a number of federal courts in these locations. We understand the process of getting results in a case of serious injury or wrongful death. From reconstructing the accident to demonstrating liability and proving damages, we are experienced trial lawyers who assist clients in even the most complex situations.
Serious injuries may include amputations, brain injuries, paralysis, spinal cord injury, burns, and more. Closed head injuries and brain damage may require the attention of specially trained experts to truly understand the impact on the lives of the victims and their families. Whatever the injury, an experienced attorney should be consulted to ensure that you are treated fairly and that you get the help you deserve.
