Personal Injury Lawyer Portland

Attorneys Helping Accident Victims in Portland – 2 Office Locations

Since 1976, the Portland personal injury lawyers at Hardy Wolf & Downing have earned a reputation for winning difficult cases and pursuing justice to the fullest extent of the law. For your convenience, we offer two law offices in Portland,

Our unique Portland personal injury firm serves local communities from Auburn to Bangor. We understand that dogged determination, local connections, research skills and knowledge of the law are not enough to excel; the best law firms must also lend a sympathetic ear to the struggles of its clients, apprise them of every new development in their cases, and respond to all questions or concerns in a polite, timely manner. Our two locations in Portland make it easy to meet face-to-face with our attorneys.

Portland Business District Law Office

Hardy Wolf & Downing
477 Congress Street
Portland, ME 04104

Come visit us at The Time and Temperature Building in the heart of the Portland business district, Monument Square.  This landmark structure was built in 1924 and has historical significance for both visitors and residents. Convenient parking is available to clients in the building’s large, attached garage.

Congress Street is Portland’s main street stretching from Southern Portland to the Eastern Promenade.  Other local landmarks include Congress Square, the Civil War Memorial, and The First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church.

North Deering – Auburn Street Law Office

Hardy Wolf & Downing
222 Auburn Street St.
Portland, ME 04103

Our second (quieter) office location is just a 15 minute drive from The Time and Temperature Building. Nestled in the North Deering neighborhood of Portland, this location offers an alternative sort of convenience to those with little need to venture downtown.  The area is less congested with ease of access to all neighborhoods within Portland.

Our team is eager to accommodate our clients at whichever location is most convenient to them.

Portland car accident attorneys who get results

Many Hardy Wolf & Downing TV commercials focus on motor vehicle collisions – and rightfully so. Our toughness and passion in this particular area of law is unsurpassed. Even when faced with difficult odds in court, we’ve been able to pull through and establish a compelling case worthy of substantial award.

When a car accident left a woman with serious neck and spine injuries resulting in chronic pain, we took the case through court and won $600,000 for our client, even though her treating physician was a friend of the defense counsel and an independent medical examiner supporting the insurance company’s claim that our client should be physically able to work.

Sometimes it seems like no one will listen and the deck is stacked against you. At times like this, representation from a compassionate car accident attorney is indispensable. In a Kennebeck car accident case, three eyewitnesses said they saw our client turn directly in front of a Can Am truck. We used reconstruction experts to clearly demonstrate how the truck driver was truly at fault and won $500,000.

We went up against staunch insurance company adjusters when an uninsured motorist plowed into our client on a motorcycle, leaving him with severe pelvic fractures that required weeks of hospitalization and months of rehabilitation costs. The insurance company said our client’s policy only allowed for $50,000 in medical costs and lost wages, but we fought hard to uncover an additional $500,000 through a commercial policy on a separate vehicle he owned.

Victims do not always feel comfortable filing a lawsuit, especially when the other party is not “the enemy.” The accident attorneys of Hardy Wolf & Downing navigated a particularly emotionally-charged case where a driver fell asleep at the wheel and killed our client. We were able to recover more than $300,000 for the family of the victim, without misgivings or even having to file suit.

Choose Portland’s top personal injury lawyers

Four decades ago, senior partners William Hardy and Fredda Wolf worked on every type of lawsuit, from felony murders to workers comp cases. Gradually, the firm’s reputation for personal injury accident cases grew and we now handle this niche exclusively.

Our attorneys have worked as journalists, high-level federal court and Department of Justice workers, corporate counselors, Audubon Society staff attorneys, and legislative advocates taking on big insurance companies before joining Hardy Wolf and Downing. Your case will be handled by respected Portland personal injury attorneys who are active members of the Bar Association, Trial Lawyers Association and the National Association of Trial Lawyers of America.

If you or a loved one have been seriously injured through the negligence of another, know that you have a friend at Hardy Wolf and Downing. While the law cannot allow for the easing of all suffering, you can take a brave step toward healing by calling us at 207-878-0000 or 207-523-3499 for a free case evaluation. Clients never pay a cent unless we accept and win the case, so you have everything to gain by fully exploring all your options.
