Our reputation gets the results you need to move forward.

Accidents are never fair, especially when they come at the expense of your body, vehicle, and livelihood. Losing your job because you do not have transportation due to a collision and facing a mountain of medical debt related to what could be lifelong health problems calls for immediate attention. There is no reason you should pay for the negligent or reckless actions of others.

But the actions you fail to take after an auto accident, wrongful death, or catastrophic injury could cost you more. Getting the best result in a personal injury case depends on taking the first step: seeking legal counsel from experienced attorneys who understand accepting the easy settlement rarely serves clients.

Other firms know Peddicord & Townsend stands prepared to see personal injury claims go to trial, giving our clients the upperhand. Our clients come to us having suffered from car accidents, wrongful deaths, medical malpractice, slip and fall, dog bites, and catastrophic injuries--such as loss of limbs or sight.

Money is not important; you are.
