Personal injury law is a broad area of the law that covers everything from car accidents and truck crashes to premises liability and product liability. Our New Orleans injury law firm handles three specific types of personal injury cases. Our attorneys represent injury victims and their families as they seek justice and compensation for their injuries, losses, and damages.
Defective Medical Devices
Our attorneys are nationwide product liability attorneys for victims who have been injured by defective medical devices. Some of the cases we handle include lawsuits and claims involving:
- 3D Max Hernia Mesh
- Alere Home Monitoring Device
- Atrium C-Qur Mesh
- Bard IVC Filter Complications
- Bair Hugger™ Forced Air Warming Blanket

Defective and dangerous medical devices cause serious injury and death. We help victims and their families recover compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages from the corporations liable for manufacturing and selling these defective medical devices.
Pharmaceutical Litigation – Drug Side Effects
Medications are supposed to help make us better; however, not all medications are safe to use. While most medications have side effects, some medications are dangerous. Our nationwide defective drug attorneys handle a variety of cases involving defective and dangerous drugs including:
- Onglyza / Kombiglyze
- Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs)
- Testosterone Replacement Therapy
As experienced pharmaceutical liability attorneys, we help individuals and families hold drug manufacturers responsible for their reckless, careless, and negligent acts that result in injuries and deaths.
Traffic-Related Accidents and Wrongful Death
Our New Orleans personal injury law firm also handles cases involving car accidents, truck accidents, and wrongful deaths. Being injured in a traffic-related accident can result in substantial financial, emotional, and physical damages. In some cases, the insurance company for the at-fault driver or party refuses to negotiate a fair and just settlement for the accident victims. Our attorneys protect the rights of our clients to receive full compensation for all damages.
When you are injured in a traffic accident or you lose a loved one, you deserve to be treated with respect. When an insurance provider offers a low settlement, that company is not only trying to get out of paying a fair settlement; it is also acting disrespectfully. In some cases, the actions could be considered bad faith. We encourage you to consult with one of our attorneys before you accept a settlement offer, provide statements, or sign releases.
