At the law offices of Simien and Simien we proudly offer comprehensive legal counsel to injury victims throughout Louisiana, Texas and other parts of the country with appropriate local counsel association. Our entire compliment of attorneys and support staff are able to cater almost all areas of personal injury litigation.
This list includes (but is not limited to):
- Wrongful Death
A Wrongful death case involves a claim for the premature death of an individual through the negligence or fault of a third party. Often, such claims are the result of an automobile or other accidents that lead to the loss of an innocent life.
- Maritime and Offshore Accidents
Maritime and Offshore work can be dangerous. Those working on vessels or in the oil and gas exploration and/or production business can be injured or killed. There are several laws that protect the rights of maritime and offshore workers.
- Automobile Accidents
Seeing Automobile Accidents is almost a daily occurrence. Many of these accidents occur because some drivers don't take the responsibility of driving seriously.
- 18 Wheeler Accidents
Big rigs, 18 wheelers, and tractor trailers typically weigh about 80,000 pounds. The responsibility of driving an 18 wheeler is massive, because one mistake can cause tragic injuries and death.
- Tire De-tread and Roll Over Accidents
Defective tires may de-tread and lead to serious, severe and debilitating injuries and even death. There are hundreds of serious accidents every year, many related to tire failures.
- Spinal Cord and Paralysis Injuries
Accidents can cause devastating injuries, including paralysis and other serious spinal cord injuries. Some studies have estimated that over 50 percent of all paralysis injuries result from accidents involving 18 wheelers, commercial and other trucks, cars and motorcycles.
- Oil Field Waste
If you or your family owns land which is currently being used or in the past has been used for oil drilling operations, or a pipeline carrying petroleum or natural gases, you may need to explore possible contamination of your land and property by those operations.
- Mass Torts
Mass torts are brought on by large groups of people that have been injured on a large scale by the same company, or entity, and are typically consolidated into one court room under one single judge.
Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer where malignant cells are found in the mesothelium, a protective sac that covers many of the body's internal organs. Between 1940 and 1979, approximately 27.5 million people were exposed to asbestos.
- Primary Pulmonary Hypertension (PPH)
Primary Pulmonary Hypertension (PPH) is a rare and incurable lung disease. It progresses over time and causes overwhelming pressure in the pulmonary artery that connects the lung to the heart.
