We are Louisiana Offshore Accident Lawyers. Make the Wright Call.

Experienced. Skilled. Louisiana Offshore Accident Lawyers Focused on Helping You.

If you have been injured while working offshore, you need experienced Louisiana offshore accident attorneys to help you get the compensation you deserve. Offshore injuries and maritime laws can be extremely complex, far more complicated than other personal injury cases or worker’s compensation claims. The impact of an offshore accident or maritime injury can be catastrophic. Experience and knowledge of vessels, platforms, structures, the different types of offshore accidents that can occur and how these apply to federal and state laws are important factors for all Louisiana offshore injury lawyers to have a deep background in.

The Louisiana Offshore Accident 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 five 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 accidents and offshore accidents, along the Gulf Coast and worldwide.

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. In many cases, an insurance company will offer a settlement before the victim is aware of the full extent of their injuries and 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 Accident Lawyers of Domengeaux Wright Roy & Edwards LLC to handle your case.

If you have been injured through no fault of your own, you need to immediately seek legal representation. Domengeaux Wright Roy & Edwards LLC offers a FREE initial consultation to evaluate your case. If you DO NOT recover damages, we DO NOT charge a fee.

Types of Offshore Accidents & Injuries

Offshore and maritime workers have demanding job descriptions, but they should not be placed at undue risk.

  • Asphyxiation in enclosed spaces
  • Chemical burns
  • Falls overboard
  • Slip and fall accidents on deck
  • Exposure to hazardous chemicals
  • Fires and explosions
  • Back, neck, hip, and leg injuries
  • Commercial fishing accidents and injuries

Help for Injured Louisiana Offshore Oil Workers. Make the Wright Call, Today. 337-291-HURT for Louisiana Offshore Accident Attorneys

Offshore oil platforms are located in inherently dangerous environments. Serious injury or death can occur in several ways, from accidents on crew boats, work boats, barges, floating rigs, drill ships, helicopters or while being transported to the platform, diving injuries, mistakes with the specialized equipment used on the platform, fires and explosions. The Louisiana Offshore Injury Attorneys of Domengeaux Wright Roy & Edwards LLC represents injured clients, as well as family members of offshore and land-based oil and gas workers who have suffered or died in fatal accidents.

Many we have helped come from accidents and injuries in the oil and gas industry. The U.S. Energy Information Administration documents that a majority of the nation’s largest oil fields are found off Louisiana’s coast and 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 have been made, or they are operating in unsafe working conditions when corners are cut to boost profits.

The Louisiana Offshore Injury Lawyers of Domengeaux Wright Roy & Edwards LLC are committed to protecting the hard-working folks who make all of our lives more comfortable.

Put our experience on your side and get the help you deserve. We understand your needs, and we will fight for your rights. Our Louisiana Offshore Injury Lawyers have represented injured oil workers, rig service workers, deck hands, crewmen, divers and inland water workers. It is crucial to speak with experienced Louisiana Offshore Injury Lawyers as soon as possible following a work-related injury. Make the Wright Call.

We will work diligently to ensure employers are held accountable by paying the maximum amount for your injuries.

If you are injured while being transported to an offshore oil platform or while on any movable platform, you are not covered by state law.

The Louisiana Offshore Accident Attorneys of Domengeaux Wright Roy & Edwards LLC know what steps to follow and how to help. We may have to prove liability against your employer, a third party or the vessel. It’s often complicated but important when it comes to your health, family and livelihood. It takes a dedicated team of Louisiana Offshore Injury Lawyers working for you.
