We Fight For You

The term “accident” implies that no one was at fault for what occurred. It was “just an accident” is the last thing want to hear as a victim of someone else’s negligence.

At Hardy, Wolf & Downing, we understand that most “accidents” occur because someone neglected to follow the rules.

The most common personal injury cases we see involve auto accidents, construction accidents, and premises liability. While these are our most common types of cases, if you were the victim of an injury caused by someone else’s negligence, we urge you to reach out to an experienced personal injury attorney to learn about your legal rights and options, even if your claim doesn’t fall within one of these categories.

A driver didn’t stop at a stop sign and rammed into your car. A truck driver was speeding to get to their next delivery and caused a collision. A driver got behind the wheel of a car after a few drinks at a party and their impaired driving caused a car crash.

If something like this happened to you, don’t go it alone. Remember, insurance companies are not on your side after an accident. Instead, they are working to protect their bottom line. As a result, they will often try to limit the amount you receive for damages with a low first offer, hoping you don’t know your rights under the law or what you’re entitled to after an injury occurs.

Protect yourself by speaking with an experienced Maine car accident lawyer.

You slipped and fell on untreated ice and snow in the parking lot of your favorite grocery store. You slashed your finger on a sharp edge of a shelving unit at your local hardware store. You slipped on water leaking from a refrigerated cooler.

Any business, property, or facility you visit should be safe for anyone who enters. Owners of the premises must ensure that their premises are reasonably safe for your use. This means addressing any unsafe conditions on the property, such as putting up wet floor signs, salting and sanding icy parking lots, or maintaining their equipment correctly.

You should reach out to an experienced Maine personal injury attorney if you had an accident that occurred because the property owner neglected to meet safety standards.

No matter the type of accident, we want to hear from you. So contact us at Hardy, Wolf & Downing today to discuss the specifics of your accident.

A crane is improperly loaded and comes crashing down. A guard on a tool is removed to help increase productivity, resulting in an injury to the user. You fall from a roof without the right personal protective equipment.

Construction sites can be inherently dangerous places for both workers and visitors. An injury can put you out of work and disrupt your life. Those in charge of the area must follow safety regulations to stop these accidents from occurring; when they don’t, they are at fault.

Speaking with a Maine construction accident lawyer can help you build a case and allow you to move forward with your life.

Workers Compensation Claims

Worker’s compensation claims can be difficult in Maine. If you are hurt while working, you are likely covered by the Maine Worker’s Compensation law. If you have a worker’s compensation claim, or think you might, Hardy Wolf & Downing may be able to help you. We typically handle worker’s compensation claims that involve third parties, (someone other than your employer at fault). We have had great success helping people in these situations recover much more than they would with only a worker’s compensation claim.

If you were hurt while at work, give Hardy Wolf & Downing a call.

You can talk to a lawyer about whether or not you have a third party claim. Our lawyers can either help you or point you in the right direction.

Either way, it’s a free consultation.
