You have the right to seek fair compensation for the damages you have incurred as the result of another person’s negligence or carelessness. These damages can include medical expenses, pain and suffering, time off of work, and damages for your family members. At Duque Law, we aggressively take on all types of personal injury cases, including car accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, construction accidents, tractor trailer accidents, workplace injuries, and wrongful death cases. Your initial consultation is absolutely free and you do not pay any legal fees until we obtain a financial recovery for you.

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) results when the head suffers a violent hit or even a sudden jolt.
