Louisiana Asbestos Litigation Defense Law Firm

Keogh Cox defends local and national companies in difficult, high-stakes asbestos litigation throughout Louisiana’s state and federal courts.  Our lawyers understand the complexities of Louisiana asbestos litigation created by the pre-comparative fault principles implied in these and other toxic tort claims. We are experienced in claims following an explosion, fire or other industrial or maritime catastrophe, which involve latent, asbestos-related diseases. Our approach is to develop unique and cost-effective strategies to help businesses, insurance companies and premises owners in significant asbestos lawsuits throughout the state.  Since document management and effective, timely communication are pivotal aspects of asbestos litigation, we offer our clients an advantage – thanks to years of experience working with massive amounts of records in an efficient paperless environment.

Recent Experience Highlights

Where we started: Our client was a nationally recognized distributor of dental products and was alleged to have provided asbestos products to a dentist who was diagnosed with mesothelioma.  Given the time period involved, the client faced joint and several liability with all other named defendants. Our roadmap: Keogh Cox developed a plan to extricate the client from the case by way of summary judgment. We proved that the claimant couldn’t establish that our client provided an asbestos-containing product, or that our client failed to properly warn the dentist, who we argued was a sophisticated user. Resolution:  Keogh Cox prevailed on the motion for summary judgment and obtained a final judgment of dismissal, while the remaining defendants continued to defend the case.
