Baton Rouge Boat Accident Attorneys
Passionate, Understanding Representation for Boaters and Jones Act Seamen
The Mississippi River, Lake Pontchartrain and the entire Mississippi River Delta are some of the most heavily trafficked waterways in the entire country. From barges and oil tankers to fishing boats and personal watercraft, activities on the water are a constant. Unfortunately, all of this activity means that boat and vessel accidents happen with some frequency. If you or a loved one has suffered serious injuries or been killed in a boating accident, an experienced attorney may be able to help you recover compensation.

We represent workers throughout the Gulf Coast in serious injury and wrongful death cases, and we also represent individuals involved in recreational/pleasure boating accidents, helping to protect their rights when injured by the negligence of others. We work to help them determine the best possible options and keep them informed throughout the legal process.
