Have you or a loved one suffered paralysis?
Estimates say nearly one in 50 people live with some form of temporary or permanent paralysis—the complete or partial loss of motor function in a part of the body. Those diagnosed with paralysis often require physical or occupational therapy, vocational training, or psychological counseling long after their initial injury.
The experienced team of attorneys at Gauthier Amedee understand the physical, mental, and financial costs associated with paralytic injury. That’s why we work hard to ensure our clients get the just compensation for any debilitating injuries they may have sustained.
If you or a loved one has become paralyzed in an accident through no fault of your own, contact the experienced Louisiana paralysis attorneys at Gauthier Amedee for help at (225) 647-1700.
