A Back Injury Attorney That Will Fight for Your Right to Compensation

What is typically called the "neck" or "back" is a complicated structure of bone, muscle, nerves and other connective tissues. Any injury or damage to this complex system can be intensely painful, debilitating and sometimes irreversible.

To discuss your situation and your rights, please contact our Lafayette law office onlineor by calling 337-446-2370 to schedule a free consultation.

Injuries Could Manifest Over Time

Particularly in car accidents, the extent of the damage to the system may not be fully known for days, weeks or months afterward. To make matters worse, the person may appear fine despite chronic pain, limitations to motion and total fear of aggravating the damage, injury or pain. Insurance companies try to take advantage of this by claiming that the injuries are not serious and seek to limit payments. Insurance companies frequently claim that the impact was a minor or a low-speed crash, implying that the wreck caused no personal injury. This is incorrect.

One visit convinced me that Richard was the right attorney for me. Throughout the duration of our case, I could never have imagined that any team of lawyers would take so much time, be so thorough, treat me and my family as their own, and so convincingly win the case as did Richard and Richard III. I went searching for an attorney--I gained friends for a lifetime.
