Personal Injury Law

Cases, especially involving injuries, can be very, very different because every person is different, and every circumstance that caused a wreck or an accident or a loss can be different.

But there are some general ideas that we look for. First, when someone calls I want to know, are you still undergoing treatment? Are you cleared from the doctor? Once we get a general handle on what’s going on with the medical bills–whether they’ll be cleared soon or could be for the rest of your life. Then we like to sit down and go over, what’s the cost of all this? What did it cost you personally?

We like to look at the economic damages; we like to look at the personal damages, and in some instances we’re looking at–you know–the mental damages: the anguish, the pain, the suffering. And I think people kind of give those short shrift at times, and sometimes that’s the worst part.

Heck, I give people a memo pad, and I say, “Start writing down how you felt today,” because two, three, four, five years later, you may not remember; you may gloss over how hard it was on that particular day to get up, to go to work, to leave to go to physical therapy, to limp around in pain, to not be able to go to your child’s basketball game, to not be able to play outside with your family.

Those are the type of things that we really want to focus on with people. And we encourage you to call us to discuss any of the types of situations below:

Client Reviews
My daughter had a second DUI and when it all seemed hopeless, Bill was able to get the charges dropped. This is a man who is extremely knowledgeable, yet still keeps his integrity which was impressive to me. He handles himself with dignity. If you hire him, you will have the best of the best, along with his expansive intellect and wisdom about the law. Please don’t feel hopeless, when you can hire such a great attorney to be on your side.
Bill Powers’ staff has handled several traffic citations for me over the years, and they exceeded my expectations each and every time. Would highly recommend anyone faced with a traffic citation or court case contact his office and they will handle it from there. M.C.
I utilized Bill Powers and his firm after my DUI infraction in December 2011. During my initial consultation he immediately made me feel at ease with his knowledge of the law and his confidence in moving forward. Not to mention a great personality. He filled me in on all the ramifications and the process as a whole. I am a realist, and did not expect miracles. But Bill is stickler for procedure and that is what you need in a crises such as this. It took a good year, and the results were more than I could ever anticipate or hope for. I would have paid more had I known the results ahead of time. If you find yourself in a similar situation, trust me, he is your go to lawyer. J SJ
