At the Duque Law Firm, we help injured accident victims battle against insurance companies, so that they can obtain the compensation that they deserve. As you you know, insurance companies aren’t always eager to pay out claims to accident victims. This is even more true when an accident victim has been severely injured, and the damages escalate. You have the right to seek fair compensation for your damages, which can include medical expenses, pain and suffering, time off of work, and damages for your family members.
We handle all types of personal injury cases, including motorcycle, car and bicycle accidents, construction accidents, tractor trailer accidents, workplace injuries, and wrongful death cases. The initial consultation is free and is the time when we will evaluate the merits of your case and you have a chance to get to know us before hiring us to represent you. If we choose to work together, you pay no legal fees until we win a financial recovery for you.

Construction is happening at a rapid rate in Highland and accidents to employees and bystanders can happen daily as a result.
