Class Actions Lawsuit Attorneys
If you were injured because of a recalled product, company that falsely advertised their product or that failed to disclose the facts and risks of their product; you may be eligibile to participate in a class action lawsuit. Our class action lawyers have experience fighting to hold people accountable in this type of case.
If you were injured or lost a loved one because of the carelessness or negligence of a company or entity, we can help. We pride ourselves in aiding victims and fight hard to give them a voice and pursue justice on your behalf. Although mesothelioma lawsuits are what earned our law firm so much recognition over the past few decades, we have also earned successful verdicts and settlements for other cases.
Mesothelioma cases are particularly high in the state of Louisiana because of the large number of chemical plants and manufacturing companies. Unfortunately these are some of the industries that have historically exposed employees to asbestos the most.
