Fighting for Your Maximum Compensation

Our team works hard to help each client maximize their claim. We know that after a serious injury, you will need compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. Insurance adjusters seem to conveniently forget this when it comes time to offer you a settlement for your injuries. The amounts that they draft are notorious for being minimal and unusable, even when it is obvious that the accident was not your fault at all. Let us fight for you until you get the results you deserve.

At our office, our approach is simple: push a defendant to settle for top dollar or take the case to trial. We are willing to put in the time and work to settle your case efficiently and effectively. Whereas many personal injury cases can drag on for years at a time, we are proud to be able to say that we have completed most of our cases within 12 months.

Preparing Your Serious Injury Case from Day One

A serious injury is sure to spark a catastrophic personal injury case. The negligent or liable party will not want to accept any responsibility for harm so catastrophic or permanent, knowing that their behavior has potentially damaged both their reputation and their pocketbook. If you want to strengthen your chances of winning the compensation that you require and deserve, there are three big steps you should never forget.

  1. Get medical attention: Your health and wellbeing needs to be paramount during your injury case. Do not put off proper medical treatments because you are afraid that you will not be able to afford them. Remember that when you have Duck Law Firm, LLC in your corner, you have a hard-hitting and aggressive attorney who does not take no for an answer. If things go our way, the liable party will be paying for all of those treatments anyway!
  2. Collect evidence: If you did not have the time or ability to take photographs and gather witness testimonies yourself at the time of the accident – unlikely if your injuries are severe – do not worry. Someone out there has assuredly done it! Police and paramedics often snap pictures or take detail accounts for their own use, but we can request copies of them for your case. We might even be able to track down passerby who saw the accident unfold.
  3. Retain an attorney: The uphill battle a serious injury case represents looks daunting, until you get a powerhouse lawyer at your back. All the legal hardships and complications that could arise in your case will feel like a breeze when you let our Lafayette personal injury attorney handle them for you. You were seriously injured, so you should be resting and relaxing. We can take care of the rest on your behalf.
