After a serious accident, the last thing you want to do is deal with complicated and confusing legal proceedings. When you or a loved one is injured, your focus should be on rest and recovery. Boughton Law takes care of the details so you don’t have to. Collectively, we have decades of experience in personal injury law, and we see your case from all angles to achieve the best possible outcome. We also have a knack for finding outside of the box solutions using arbitration, mediation, and negotiation that can result in desired outcomes without the cost or publicity of litigation.
We act on behalf of individuals who have been injured in automobile accidents, slips and falls, marine or aviation occurrences, and doctors’ negligence. In particular, our team has focused on catastrophic injuries like spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, and chronic pain. For these scenarios, we take on the burden of dealing with medical professionals and insurance companies. We’ll complete required documents, arrange for appointments with specialists, obtain reports, find rehabilitation specialists, and prepare you for legal proceedings. We even enlist the help of qualified experts in fields such as accident reconstruction, medicine, and rehabilitation to build your case.
When unfortunate circumstances occur, our lawyers take our duties very seriously. You can count on our team for comprehensive service and skilled advice.
