Attorneys with a national reputation for excellence
Another primary factor of any personal injury claim is the amount of damages which a victim is entitled to pursue.
Louisiana is a comparative negligence state, which means that even in the most egregious of accidents, if a court
determines that the victim was 10 percent at fault, the total damages must be reduced by 10 percent.
A victim’s damages may be classified into actual, general, or punitive. Actual damages include anything which has
an economic impact, including:
- Medical Expenses
- Lost Income
- Property Damage
- Other Out-of-Pocket Expenses

Oilfield Catastrophe Settlement
Our clients were injured by an incident involving a high pressure gas release in an oil and gas field. The settlement will allow for 24-hour care for one client, who is brain injured, and lifetime income and care for another who suffered severe orthopedic injuries and a minor brain injury.
Sexual Abuse Settlement
Our clients were residents of orphanages run by the Catholic Church for disadvantaged children. We were able to prove that physical and sexual abuse occurred to our clients at these institutions.
Wrongful Death Settlement
A volunteer firefighter was struck and killed by a motorist at the site of a hazardous material spill. The firefighter’s widow, our client, and their minor children won a jury verdict for a wrongful death survival action against the State of Louisiana, proving it was liable because it failed to secure the initial accident site.
Personal Injury Settlement
Our client suffered serious personal injuries when a bus driver waved an automobile into the path of her vehicle. The jury returned a verdict of $500,000 and the Defendant appealed. The appellate court raised the $500,000 award to $897,147.93.
