The Personal Injury Law Practice:
We handle all types of personal injury cases, especially claims resulting in injury from car, motorcycle and tractor trailer wrecks and defective products. We handle injury cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning our fee will be a percentage of the amount of money that we collect on your behalf. At Mitchell Blackstock, you won’t be dealing with an adjustor or paralegal. Your case will be receiving the personal attention of one of our attorneys, who will be available to speak with you most anytime about the progress of your case. While we are able to obtain favorable settlements in the overwhelming majority of injury cases, we are fully prepared to go to court if that is what is necessary.
