Our Injury & Wrongful Death Practice
We have three niche practices that we handle out of our Monroe, LA, office:
- Medical malpractice: Our focus is primarily representing clients in medical malpractice cases. These cases include claims against hospitals, doctors and nursing homes for negligent care that led to injuries or wrongful death.
- Product liability: We mainly handle products liability claims involving dangerous machines, dangerous drugs and defective medical devices inserted in the body, such as hip and knee implants.
- Auto accidents: We are not an auto accident mill. We do not churn through cases for quick settlements that do not do our clients justice. Instead, we carefully evaluate car accident and truck accident claims so we can seek and obtain for you full and fair compensation, whether through settlement or court.
We Care About Our Clients
We spend time with our clients. We ask deep questions, actively listen, and offer legal advice that best fits each client, each time. We are never afraid to offer honest opinions, even when those opinions lead a client to choose not to pursue legal action or to find a different lawyer.
This personalized, one-to-one approach is what helps set us apart from other law firms. We are invested in every client we represent. When you want someone who actually gets you and is here to help you through a hard time, turn to us.
We Stay Involved in Our Community
We believe in giving back to our community. Attorney Tony Tramontana volunteers his time with his church, his children’s schools and his children’s sports teams. He also stays connected to the legal community in many ways, including participating on a committee to review and make recommendations on existing Louisiana medical malpractice law.

The sheer size and weight of big-rig trucks means that truck accidents are especially dangerous.

Obtaining Full and Fair Compensation for Your Injuries
Many law firms take car accident cases in order to settle them quickly. These firms may get you money, but it could be far less than you deserve, and less than you need, to recover your health. The full extent of the damage caused in a serious car wreck may not be apparent for months. If you have already accepted a settlement, there is no going back and asking for more. You need to do it right the first time.

Severe injuries from accidents can cause life-long complications. For that reason, we’ve compiled information about the injuries we see most often. But most importantly, if you have medical bills and are losing time from work, it’s time to consult with a personal injury lawyer.
If you or your baby has suffered an injury during your pregnancy or birth of the baby, you may be entitled to compensation. Your doctor is responsible for providing you with adequate care that keeps you and the baby safe from harm. If you believe you or your baby have been hurt because of medical negligence, you may have a viable personal injury lawsuit on your hands. Your doctor may have missed failed to recognize fetal distress, failed to timely deliver your baby, missed a diagnosis, or prescribed you the wrong treatment while you are pregnant. If you or your baby has been injured, it’s reasonable to bring your case to a personal injury lawyer for a consultation to determine whether you can receive compensation.
When you break or fracture a bone during an auto accident, significant damage may be done to the bone and the tissue that surrounds the bone itself. It can take weeks or months to recover fully from a broken bone, and you may have complications for the rest of your life from this type of injury. A broken bone can be a simple fracture, or it can be a complex fracture that breaks through the skin. Whether you have broken one bone, or you have suffered a number of broken bones, this is an injury that can cause you to be out of work for a number of weeks or months.
Burn injuries can be extremely painful and can cause permanent scarring on your body. If you have been burned from high temperatures, water, chemicals, electricity or friction during an accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Burn injuries can take months for you to fully heal from, and you may suffer scarring that never goes away. Burn injuries can involve numerous skin grafts and operations in order to get the skin healthy again, and the patient suffering from a burn injury is often in pain.
Catastrophic injuries are those that can be severely debilitating. Any injury that causes permanent damage or loss of function can be considered catastrophic. These types of injuries often come with the highest level of financial compensation, because they tend to prevent you from gainful employment and are the injuries from which people will suffer the most. Catastrophic injuries include a loss of limb, severe impairment, and even death. If a loved one has died because of a catastrophic injury and you believe another party is liable for the injuries, you can file a personal injury lawsuit on the behalf of their estate.
Neck and back injuries can cause permanent, chronic pain in the area that has been injured. Whether you have suffered from whiplash, or you have strained damaged or ruptured a disk in your low back in an accident, many people find that they suffer from pain for years to come when they have a neck or back injury. It’s important to receive treatment for your neck or back injuries, as healing goes more smoothly when you receive quality care.
