New Orleans Environmental & Personal Injury Attorneys

 

Serving clients in Louisiana and nationwide

 

Oil and gas are a source of wealth for a host of individuals and businesses and have contributed to regional economies in many states. Louisiana produces or transports more than a third of the nation's oil and a quarter of its natural gas. Yet, along with the positive aspects of an important industry, there are dangerous oil and gas exploration by-products that negatively impact humans, wildlife and the environment.

 

At SmithStag, LLC, located in New Orleans, oil and gas production related cases are one of the focal points of our plaintiff-oriented personal injury, environmental, toxic tort and mineral royalties law practice. Our firm’s founding partners are pioneers in the field of oilfield waste litigation, namely “naturally occurring radioactive materials” (NORM) and “technologically enhanced radioactive materials” (TERM), which are harmful to humans. Clients look to our firm to tackle tough problems and pursue justice when serious injury arises due to oil and gas industry negligence.

 

The legal services we offer individuals, businesses and communities extend to products liability, maritime law, mineral royalties and general litigation throughout Louisiana. Through close affiliation with law firms in other jurisdictions, SmithStag also represents clients in many other states, including West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Texas, Mississippi, Kentucky, Alabama and Florida.
