The Townsley Law Firm Attorneys

Award-Winning Representation

Serving The Lake Charles Area Since 1975

The Townsley Law Firm has experience handling a wide range of cases

Personal Injury & Wrongful Death

Surviving family members can pursue a wrongful death case against the negligent party responsible for their loved one’s death. Compensation could cover losses such as funeral expenses, loss of earnings and benefits and medical bills.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Traffic-related accidents can cause injuries and fatalities to the occupants of the vehicles. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimated motor vehicle traffic crashes resulted in 38,680 deaths in 2020.

Medical Malpractice

Nurses, surgeons, physical therapists, and other healthcare professionals must follow necessary procedures to keep their patients safe. A medical error can lead to an injury, illness, or death. Medical providers can be held liable for causing harm to a patient.

Workplace Accidents

Occupational injuries and illnesses occur in every job industry. It doesn’t matter if you’re a data entry professional or handle dangerous machinery – you could sustain an injury while performing your work-related duties.

Defective Products

Even if a consumer uses the product as intended, an injury can occur due to the inherent danger created by a manufacturing defect. Manufacturers can be held liable for providing defective products to the public.

Social Security Disability

Social Security is one of the primary financial benefits available to people who have disabilities. Our attorneys know how to navigate the red tape to help you get the benefits you need as quickly as possible.

Hurricane Damage Claims

Filing an insurance claim is necessary if a hurricane damages your business or home. If your insurance carrier denied, delayed, or underpaid your claim, The Townsley Law Firm could help get you the money you’re owed.

Premises Liability

Property owners are supposed to provide visitors with safe property conditions or provide adequate warning of hazards. The owner could be at fault for the dangerous conditions on their property, resulting in a guest’s injury.

Nursing Home Abuse

The staff at nursing homes should provide quality care to residents. Abuse and neglect can occur, causing injuries or death to a patient. For example, a nurse might forget to turn a bed-bound patient, leading to bedsores.

Birth Injuries

If you believe your baby was harmed through medical negligence, The Townsley Law Firm can help you pursue justice. Our attorneys have successfully sued physicians and hospitals for medical malpractice resulting in birth injury or infant death.

A Reputation Earned From Results

The Townsley Law Firm is known for aggressively pursuing compensation from big insurance companies, major corporations, medical providers and other entities. We seek to find justice for our clients through fair compensation for difficult losses. In some cases, that means using our time-tested trial skills to resolve the matter in front of a judge and jury. In others, we can get justice through careful negotiation. At the end of the day, our experience means we can follow the right path for your case.

In our four-plus decades of practice, we have recovered millions of dollars for victims of auto accidents, medical malpractice, maritime and offshore accidents and other types of accidents. Beyond personal injury claims, we also help injured people with workers’ compensation, Social Security disability and can even represent insurance policyholders in hurricane and natural disaster claims.
