Personal Injury

Collect the damages you are rightfully owed

If you’ve suffered an injury through an accident or due to the negligence of another person, our attorneys can help you build a case to recover your losses and help ensure your healthy recovery. Enduring the difficulty of an injury and the subsequent medical care is stressful enough. Our attorneys will represent you on a contingency fee basis. That means we don’t collect any fees for the work we do unless you recover damages for your injuries.

Car Accidents

Motor vehicle accidents are the most common cause of personal injuries. Whether you were injured due to the negligence, recklessness or intoxication of another person, our attorneys are ready to help you seek the damages you deserve. Our attorneys have years of experience dealing with insurance companies and recovering compensation for our clients for medical bills, lost wages, damage to personal property, as well as emotional distress. Let us help you move on with your life.

Slip and Fall Injuries

If you have suffered an injury due to the negligence or failure to maintain a safe environment by another person or business, our attorneys can help. If you are injured inside a business, in a restaurant, or on a sidewalk, you may have a liability claim against that business. No matter the injury—big or small—our attorneys’ experience will help you recover the damages you deserve.

18-Wheeler Accidents

Accidents involving semis or 18-wheelers present unique issues that typical motor vehicle accidents don’t. The higher likelihood of serious injury, the additional governmental regulations on 18-wheelers and unique insurance coverage issues make hiring the right attorney critically important.

If you’ve been injured or suffered damage due to a trucking accident, don’t rely on the trucking company’s insurance to look out for your interests. The attorneys at Tompkins Law Firm have experience negotiating with big insurance companies in order to guarantee you get the best settlement to which you are entitled.

Let us help lift the burden

We can’t heal your injuries, but we can help alleviate the burden of costly bills and damages you’ve suffered to help you get back to a normal life after those injuries. As always, we won’t collect any fees for our services unless you recover damages for your injuries. Contact us today for a free consultation.

Social Security Disability

Social Security Disability laws and procedures are confusing. If you have applied for social security disability and been denied, you need our experience to help you navigate the complex rules and regulations of the Social Security Administration’s appeals process.
