Car Accident Caused by Highway Defect Results in Paraplegia

The experienced car accident lawyers at Gordon McKernan recently secured a large settlement for a client whose accident was the result of a highway defect. Our client suffered devastating spinal cord injuries and was left partially paralyzed after the incident.

An accident like this one is made more tragic by the fact that it was entirely preventable. Louisiana roads are notorious for being poorly maintained, and in the worst-case scenarios, devastating events like the one that happened to our client can be the result. Injuries from car accidents are fairly common, but catastrophic injuries such as this can change a victim’s life completely. 

As residents of Louisiana ourselves, the team at Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys knows just how dangerous our highways can be. That’s why we are committed to representing people, like our recent client, who have been injured as a consequence of the neglected condition of our state roads. We want the victims of auto accidents in Louisiana to receive fair compensation quickly, so they can begin to rebuild their lives.

We filed suit in Louisiana.
