Your finances are the last thing you want to worry about after suffering injuries in an accident. An experienced Jennings personal injury lawyer can help you obtain the monetary compensation you deserve for your injuries and losses. J. Price McNamara understands the importance of swift and aggressive action so you can focus primarily on healing.
