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.
At Duque Law we handle all types of personal injury cases, including car accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, construction accidents, tractor trailer accidents, workplace injuries, and wrongful death cases. We provide all potential clients with a free legal consultation, in which we can evaluate your case and which gives you a chance to get to know us before hiring us to represent you. If we choose to work together, you do not pay any legal fees until we obtain a financial recovery for you.
