Offshore Injuries

We Are Louisiana Offshore Injury Lawyers

Put Louisiana Offshore Injury Lawyers on Your Side

If you have been injured while working offshore, you need experienced Louisiana offshore injury lawyers to help you get the compensation you deserve.

The Louisiana offshore injury lawyers of Domengeaux Wright Roy & Edwards LLC take tremendous pride in our understanding of the maritime industry and our ability to represent you.

A substantial part of our practice for over six decades has been dedicated to representing clients who have been injured while working offshore and helping those who have lost loved ones in Louisiana maritime and offshore incidents along the Gulf Coast and worldwide.

Offshore Injuries Demand Experienced Lawyers

Offshore injuries and maritime laws can be extremely complex, far more complicated than other personal injury cases or workers’ compensation claims. The impact of an offshore or maritime injury can be catastrophic.

Experience and knowledge of vesselsplatforms, structures, the different types of offshore catastrophes that can occur, and how these apply to federal and state laws are important for all Louisiana offshore injury lawyers to have a deep background in.

Too often when a maritime worker is injured while on the job, an employer and its insurance company attempt to pressure the injured employee, deny compensation, or offer a low settlement.

You need the experienced representation of Domengeaux Wright Roy & Edwards LLC looking out for you.

We Send a Strong Message for Our Clients

In many cases, an insurance company will offer a settlement before the victim is aware of the full extent of their injuries and while they are distressed about medical bills and other mounting costs.

We will send a strong message that you intend to be treated fairly and you want to recover the maximum possible compensation for your injuries and suffering.

Trust the Louisiana offshore injury lawyers of Domengeaux Wright Roy & Edwards LLC to handle your case.

Help for Injured Louisiana Offshore Oil Workers. Call 337-291-HURT for Louisiana Offshore Injury Attorneys


Offshore oil platforms are located in dangerous environments. Serious injury or death can occur in several ways. They can happen from injuries on:

Catastrophes can occur while workers are being transported to the platform, from diving injuries, due to mistakes with the equipment used on the platform, or from fires and explosions.


The Louisiana offshore injury lawyers of Domengeaux Wright Roy & Edwards LLC represent injured clients and family members of offshore and land-based oil and gas workers who have died in fatal catastrophes.

Many we have helped come from catastrophes and injuries in the oil and gas industry. The U.S. Energy Information Administration documents that many of the nation’s largest oil fields are found off Louisiana’s coast. A large share of the federal oil production from the Gulf of Mexico comes ashore in Louisiana.

Maritime workers make this possible. Often, they need to be protected after negligence, mistakes that are made, or they are operating in unsafe working conditions when corners are cut to boost profits.
