Casualty, Personal Injury, Products Litigation

The Thibodeaux Law Firm, LLC has a core of attorneys skilled in representing manufacturers,  insurers and business owners in controversies involving personal injuries, industrial accidents and allegedly defective products. A firm member participated in the first lecture series following passage of the Louisiana Products Liability Act in 1988.  The firm successfully defended and obtained one of the few defense verdicts arising out of the ATV litigation explosion of the 1980s. Constructors of immovable (real) property now have clearer rights under Louisiana's statute of repose (peremption) to be insulated from liability long after the completion of their work, in part from results obtained by The Thibodeaux Law Firm attorneys.  Corporations that employ subcontractors have reconfirmed insulation from tort liability to employees of their subcontractors. Ever on the leading edge of the law, the firm has:  (a) obtained one of the first rulings in the country that handgun manufacturers cannot be held responsible for injuries sustained by innocent victims of criminal handgun violence; (b) confirmed the right of an employer to be insulated from wrongful discharge liability to an employee terminated for environmental pollution; and (c) caused Louisiana courts to precisely define the coverage limitations of surplus lines insurers in the absence of statutory or regulatory guidelines.
