WELCOME: Lake Charles Injury Lawyers

Choose Your Lawyer Carefully

When hiring an attorney or law firm to handle your personal injury case, you want to make sure that your legal team is personally involved, reliable, and has the experience to achieve results that meet your goals. We always advise our clients to choose their lawyers carefully. Our attorneys have extensive experience handling personal injury claims and provide the highest quality of service and advocacy in every case.

A Legal Team You Can Trust

Our lawyers and staff offer strategic advocacy you can rely on when a legal problem arises. We understand the challenges experienced by personal injury and wrongful death clients, and can work to resolve your case without litigation, when that best serves your interests. Our comprehensive approach includes the handling of property damage claims as well as medical-payments claims, without costs to our clients.

Pioneering lawyers in personal injury, toxic tort and exposure litigation

Our attorneys’ knowledge of personal injury cases has allowed our firm to help serious injury victims and families devastated by wrongful death for over 50 years, backed by a combined 280 years of litigation experience. Our firm is AV-rated* under Martindale-Hubbell’s peer-review system which is the highest rating a law firm can achieve.  Additionally, attorneys William B. Baggett and Roger G. Burgess have also received the prestigious ranking of Best Lawyers in America.

We have extensive experience with a variety of cases:

  • Toxic torts and chemical exposure
  • Work-related accidents
  • Negligence
  • Professional malpractice

National Recognition

In addition to being listed as an AV-rated* firm and having members being chosen to the Best Lawyers in America, the firm has obtained national recognition. Attorney William B. Baggett, Jr. exposed the vinyl chloride industry conspiracy of silence and was depicted in the Sundance Film Festival award winning documentary “Blue Vinyl,” the Sundance Film Festival award winning documentary “Fuel,” the PBS documentary “Trade Secrets” with Bill Moyers and a 12-part, year long, series in the Houston Chronicle entitled “Toxic Secrecy.”

Personalized service and a solid reputation for results

Our firm focuses on a tradition of service and result-driven advocacy. We are a family-oriented practice, and we understand the importance of personally knowing our clients so we can best represent their interests. While we know how to resolve cases quickly and efficiently without litigation, we are also prepared to take any case to trial to protect your rights. We work closely with investigators and expert consultants who help us explain your injuries and need for compensation. If it appears that your case should be filed in a jurisdiction in which we do not practice, we can often help you through our professional contacts to find appropriate representation in that jurisdiction.
