    About Scott Vicknair

    Growing up in Louisiana, the ocean has had a huge impact on our lives, and we know that seamen, longshoremen, and roughnecks are dedicated workers that take huge risks every single day. We have accomplished attorneys who know the offshore industry and have years of experience handling Jones Act, Longshore Act claims, and other maritime-based injury cases.

    Additionally, our New Orleans personal injury litigators have spent decades managing the following types of claims: motor vehicle collisions (including trucks and motorcycles), slip and falls, premises liability, defective products, catastrophic incidents, wrongful death, and other injury claims for our clients.

    We strive to provide consistent levels of service and go for the win in every case we handle, no matter the size. Why? Because to us, you’re a client, not a number, and we’re dedicated to your success. Our dedication to winning defines who we are as a firm.

    Worried about affording a New Orleans injury compensation attorney? Don’t be. You do not pay unless we secure compensation for you.

    Personal Injury Victims:

    Stop Getting Underpaid by the Insurance Company

    Your insurance company wants you to believe they will protect you when the worst happens. Sometimes they do, but they always pay as little as possible. Accident victims need help fighting with the insurance company. Our lead personal injury attorney, David Vicknair, created this FREE eBook for Louisiana accident victims.

From car accidents to complex oil rig injuries, we will fight to make sure you and your needs are taken care of.

      We Provide Experienced and Focused Representation

Other firms shortchange their clients by using shortcuts or only going halfway to save money, but that’s just not our style. We consistently put in the time, effort, and resources to go that extra mile for every client every single time.

      When contacting their team I was pleasantly given help by a person named Johnson on their team. He was very professional and easy to work with. He even answered all my questions swiftly and put it in layman’s terms for me when I didn’t understand everything immediately.

      Shopping for a personal injury lawyer was not at all what I had envisioned for my week and will admit the whole process sounded daunting. I am so thankful for the time Hannah Selman spent answering all of my many questions and somehow offering answers to the questions I did not yet know to ask. She was extremely professional and very knowledgeable throughout the whole interaction.

      quote
      Johnson was very professional and polite gentleman. When we spoke over the phone, they way he requested medical records was patient and understanding rather than other some people who usually just demand them. He took the time to ask about my day, which made me feel valued and appreciated.
