Mitchell Locke Meredith

Personal Injury

Our dedicated legal team is united in considering it an honor and privilege to serve individuals and families in need. We are professional in appearance, approach and performance — but we also bring passion and empathy into each case. Our reputation for integrity, and relationships with quality medical experts and investigators, are additional key assets for our clients.

After an accident, you must focus on physical and emotional recovery. Dealing with other parts of the aftermath — including any battles with insurance companies for the compensation you deserve — simply does not support that recovery. At the law firm of Locke Meredith, Sean Fagan & Corey Orgeron, APLC, we know your ordeal can be overwhelming, and we can help.

When someone's negligent or reckless actions change your life, you should not have to take on added financial risk and worry to get the money you deserve. Relieving those burdens to the greatest possible extent, as soon as possible, is the mission of our Baton Rouge personal injury lawyers. Contact our law firm today for a free initial consultation.

Skill, Professionalism and Passion That Benefits Louisiana Families

We have won sizable verdicts and settlements for victims of car accidents, as well as trucking and motorcycle accidents on greater Baton Rouge area roadways. We pursue maximum compensation on behalf of workers injured in our factories and on construction sites, and people hurt or killed offshore on the Mississippi River, Lake Ponchartrain, and the gulf. We hold manufacturers responsible for defective products.

Led by widely respected, 25 years attorney Locke Meredith — whom you may know from television's Legal Lines and coverage of our cases in the news — we have handled wrongful death litigation and advocacy for victims of the most severe types of personal injury, such as:
•Brain damage and injuries due to head trauma
•Burn injuries incurred in fires, explosions
•Spinal, neck and back injuries
•Immediate and long-term consequences of chemical exposure
•Whiplash and other overlooked car accident injuries

If you need to know your legal options after a serious accident — or you have other pressing concerns involving workers' compensation or a denied Social Security Disability claim — please contact our attorneys now. We provide free and thorough consultations and case evaluations. You will pay no attorney fees unless we take your case and win compensation for you.
  • Our Firm recently represented a client who was employed as a seaman/deck hand on a tugboat operating on the Mississippi River. While working and performing his duties as instructed, he was injured when the tugboat captain rammed a barge without warning, causing our client to lose his balance and step over a "hog" cable. Due to the river current and other negligent actions of the captain, our client's leg was pinned between a barge tie-off and the hog cable, which pinched, smashed, and crushed his leg. It caused permanent and severe injuries to our client.
    
    His injury required numerous surgeries and skin grafts, along with IV medications for serious infections.  He also suffered excruciating pain as well as depression. He was unable to walk without aids for years, and obviously could not and will not ever perform physical work again. He still requires physical therapy and will suffer from his disabling injuries for the rest of his life. Our client still requires periodic medical care and may need more surgeries in the future, including possible amputation.
    
    Our client is a strong and determined man and is now moving forward with his life-though changed forever as it is. It was a privilege and honor to serve him, given that he has served all of us as a veteran of the war in Afghanistan.
