ABOUT PECK HADFIELD
Finding the best legal remedies for those injured by the wrongful conduct of another
Personal injury cases are legal disputes arising when a person suffers an injury or other harm and another person or entity should be responsible for that harm. Although the majority of personal injury cases are resolved through negotiation, others require litigation. Peck Hadfield attorneys don’t just prepare cases for trial, they are skilled and experienced trial lawyers. When an acceptable agreement cannot be reached through negotiation, our lawyers are equally adept at obtaining the best settlement on your behalf. Some Peck Hadfield attorneys began their careers defending large insurance companies against personal injury claims. This gives our firm a unique perspective, including an understanding of the type of effective representation individuals must have when dealing with insurance companies.
Plaintiffs have only a limited time in which to file a personal injury case. This deadline, which varies depending on the type of injury involved, is set by state law known as a statute of limitations. Peck Hadfield attorneys ensure that your lawsuit is filed in a timely manner and resolved in the best possible manner. We respect your health, well-being and future and believe you have the right to be safe from the careless or reckless actions of others. Our attorneys consistently and successfully fight for our clients who have suffered devastating losses. In keeping with our goal of client success, we understand that your case is unique and therefore deserves individualized attention.

If It's important to you, it's important to us
We believe that each client deserves first-class treatment. That means we promptly return phone calls and emails, we keep our clients apprised of progress on their cases, and we strive for the quickest and most cost-effective solution to every legal problem. However, there are times when it is not possible to quickly and easily resolve a legal matter. It could be because the insurance company will only pay a pittance for serious injuries. Possibly it's because the opposing party is entirely unreasonable and won't settle. Perhaps it's because the stakes are so high that the case must be tried. In these instances, you want a law firm that will fully prepare your case, take it to trial, and protect your interests on appeal. Peck Hadfield attorneys have tried scores of jury trials in multiple state and federal courts throughout the United States. In addition, we have successfully represented our clients in numerous state and federal appellate courts. We do this because if it matters to you, it matters to us.
