Serious Personal Injury/Wrongful Death
We represent individuals and family members who have been wrongfully injured or killed. The financial, physical and emotional stress caused by the negligent and reckless actions of others can be significant, and our team is here to help you receive the compensation you deserve. Taking legal action not only benefits you and your loved ones, it’s integral in deterring future tragedies.

Maritime Law/Injuries at Sea

We represent workers involved in Jones Act cases, unseaworthy vessel cases, cruise line cases, pleasure boats and other maritime injury and wrongful death cases that occur on water.

Defective Products/Medical Devices
Have you been injured by a dangerous product or medical device? Companies are legally required to manufacture safe goods – if they failed to do so and you have suffered an injury that could have been prevented with proper warning, you have the right to take legal action. Eric O’Bell and his firm have represented hundreds of individuals and recovered millions involving a variety of products and drugs.

Complex Business Disputes
If you are in a business dispute with another company, your former partners/and or employees, our firm can help. We have fought aggressively for our clients in commercial litigation cases involving a wide variety of business disputes. Our attorneys have experience litigating commercial cases in state and federal courts throughout the State of Louisiana as well as before the American Arbitration Association. We have fought for businesses of all sizes and types, including sole proprietors, corporations, partnerships, and limited liability companies. We handle a full range of commercial and business disputes, including breach of contract disputes, contract interpretation, unfair competition, business torts (including fraud, misrepresentation, and negligence), statutory claims, and consumer protection issues.

We are dedicated to protecting the rights of consumers and businesses that suffer from harm, either from defective drugs, injuries, fraud or other tragedy. When a large group of people or businesses suffer a similar circumstance, our firm can file a class action lawsuit to best ensure everyone’s voice is heard and justice is served. We know what it takes.

Securities Litigation
We represent both individual and institutional investors in cases against publicly traded companies, registered investment advisors and claims against employers for retirement or ERISA benefits.

Insurance Claims
Are you having difficulty with your insurance company regarding a property damage, life insurance claim, health disability claim. Unfortuately, insurance companies often avoid compensating their customers by denying, delaying, and undervaluing claims. Our firm has represented hundreds of clients and businesses in claims against their own insurance companies. If you feel you have not been treated fairly, call us for a free evaluation.
