New Orleans Catastrophic Injury Attorneys

Helping Victims of Catastrophic Accidents in Louisiana

Catastrophic injuries are the most traumatic and life-changing injuries a person can sustain. They can occur as the result of an automobile accident, industrial accident, fire, defective equipment, sports injury or due to other negligence. It is a heartbreaking situation that affects everyone in the family.

To say that catastrophic injuries have a profound effect on accident victims and their families is an understatement. Unfortunately, in addition to the emotional aspects of a serious injury, the financial strains, including the high cost of physical rehabilitation, adaptive technology, in-home assistance and your bills generally can also be unmanageable. But we’re here to help.
