Domengeaux Wright Roy & Edwards, L.L.C. , with offices in Lafayette, Louisiana, has extensive experience protecting the interests of people injured in offshore accidents. Our attorneys regularly work with drillers, roustabouts, tool pushers, derrick men, roughnecks, oil rig workers, deckhands, and mates who have suffered personal injuries.
Maritime and oil rig workers are in one of the nation’s most dangerous professions. Amputation, back and spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, and severe burns are not uncommon. Whether an injury occurred on a jackup rig, fixed platform, semi-submersible, or a drill ship, our firm has the experience and resources to protect our client’s current and future interests.
Most Louisiana offshore workers are protected by the Jones Act. Our firm has been handling Jones Act and other Seaman claims for more than fifty years. We have developed a national reputation for handling maritime personal injury cases and earned the largest verdict ever awarded in the state of Louisiana in a maritime accident, forty-three million dollars. While this verdict was revised on appeal, it demonstrates our ability to effectively represent our clients at trial as well as in settlement negotiations.
At Domengeaux Wright Roy & Edwards, L.L.C., we have a comprehensive understanding of the maritime and oil and gas industries. Since we have handled these cases for more than fifty years, we understand the special nature of these cases. We already know the law, so we can focus all our efforts on ensuring our clients receive optimal compensation for their injuries.
