Client with severe offshore injury gets $7,150,000


Our personal injury and maritime lawyers obtained a settlement of $7,150,000 on behalf of a Louisiana client who sustained a severe offshore injury.

Our client first experienced flu and headache symptoms which continually worsened over the next several days. Eventually, he was taken off the rig and diagnosed with a “cavernous malformation” of a blood vessel on his brain stem which was bleeding. After the condition was monitored for two weeks, surgery was performed, which left him wheelchair bound and totally disabled. The defendant company claimed that his medical condition would have resulted regardless of the timing of his treatment. Through several medical experts hired by our office, we were able to uncover evidence that earlier treatment could have greatly improved his final condition, if not avoided his injury altogether. Although the defendant company had hired medical experts that disagreed with our experts, we were still able to reach a settlement that will provide money for him and his money for him and his family for the rest of his life.
