We Know Mainers
Part of what sets the personal injury attorneys of Hardy Wolf and Downing apart from the competition is the fact that we know Maine. Together, our appreciation for and understanding of the people of this state help us communicate effectively with jurors and connect with them on a personal level.

Our decades of practicing in Maine have facilitated our achievement of a level of success that perhaps would have been impossible otherwise.
We are Experts in Maine Accident Law
Many, if not most accident cases in Maine will rely heavily on negligence law in determining their outcomes. Plaintiffs in personal injury matters are typically required to demonstrate that:
- The defendant had a duty of care to the party harmed
- The duty was in fact breached
- The breach caused the plaintiff’s injury
- The injuries caused actual harm
While it can sometimes be difficult to place a dollar value on a given case and assemble the evidence necessary to substantiate it, we at Hardy Wolf and Downing possess the resources necessary to do just that. Our vast network of medical experts, economic loss analysts, case investigators, and legal support staff works collectively to build the most effective case on behalf of each client, exhaustively interviewing witnesses and reviewing all pertinent records.
We understand that the debilitating injuries resulting from accidents of every type can place entire families on the financial brink. For that reason, we pledge to work tirelessly to recover every available dollar of financial compensation, which can include:
- Current, past and future medical bills
- Physical therapy costs
- Emotional distress
- Pain and suffering
- Accessibility modifications to the home
- Lost wages
- Diminished earning capacity
- Loss of relationship and support
Our firm’s strategic approach and decades of experience in conducting successful negotiations with insurance carriers throughout Maine have led to millions of dollars in recovery for our clients. While we place a high priority on securing the financial recovery you and your loved ones need to regain your financial footing, we also realize that aggressive advocacy in the aftermath of a traumatic accident can lead to important behavioral or policy changes on the part of defendants that prevent future harm to others
