Helping Injured Divers Pursue the Compensation They Deserve

If you are suffering from decompression sickness (“the bends”) or any other illness or injury after a commercial deep sea diving accident, you may have a legal claim against your employer or another business or individual under the Jones Act or another state or federal law.

At the law firm of Domengeaux Wright Roy & Edwards, L.L.C., our Lafayette commercial diving accident lawyers are committed to pursuing fair compensation for injured divers in Louisiana and beyond. We can help you understand your legal options and seek the results you deserve.

Investigating Your Case and Pursuing Your Injury Claim

Commercial divers rely heavily on others for their safety. Dive supervisors and other workers at the surface must act carefully and methodically to avoid causing serious injuries, and the manufacturers of tethers, air hoses and other equipment also have safety responsibilities.

If you have been seriously injured or permanently disabled in a commercial diving accident, our attorneys can help you hold the responsible parties legally accountable.

While the bends are the most common type of deep sea diving injury, our firm also frequently represents clients who have suffered crush injuries and other injuries. We are committed to exploring all available legal options for helping our clients get the compensation they deserve.
