Proven Louisiana Injury Attorneys for Your Burn or Limb Loss Claim

Every serious injury case is unique, not only in terms of who caused the injury and should be held accountable under the law, but also in the extent of the injuries and overall consequences borne by the victim. The loss of a limb or other body part, as well as burns and lacerations that can leave permanent scarring, may be described for legal purposes as “disfigurement.”

Louisiana laws governing personal injury claims specifically cite the right to recover damages for permanent disfigurement or disability. Disfigurement is also a specific consequence called out in many maritime injury cases requiring action under the Jones Act or other applicable statutes.

Targeting Maximum Financial Recoveries for the Permanently Injured

Ensuring that permanent injuries are considered disfiguring and valued accordingly in the settlement or verdict is a clear strength for the dedicated attorneys of Dodson & Hooks, APLC. Our practice is focused on total advocacy for people in need of compensation for injuries including:

  • Limb loss, amputation injuries affecting fingers and toes, and other forms of dismemberment
  • Burns suffered in fires, explosions and electrical accidents — often requiring a lengthy, painful recovery and multiple costly surgeries
