You may become overwhelmed by the challenges you face after sustaining injuries in an accident. The Bogalusa personal injury lawyer with Law Offices of J. Price McNamara understands the various issues that come with severe injuries.
Each personal injury case is unique because various factors must be considered when determining your eligible compensation. A Bogalusa personal injury lawyer will examine your claim, discuss your injuries, and assess whether your facts and circumstances qualifies as a viable personal injury claim.
You may be entitled to different types of monetary compensation, known as damages, that your Bogalusa personal injury lawyer may assist you in recovering. These damages may include:

If you are a passenger, you are entitled to file claims against the other involved driver(s) and your driver’s insurance company.
