Personal Injury

We're Here For You

The experienced personal injury attorneys at McCamy, Phillips, Tuggle & Fordham, LLP, are aggressive advocates for clients litigating personal injury claims. Personal injury is the wrongful injury of one person through the fault of another. A fatal injury can result in a wrongful death claim.

A Qualified And Respected Team

Our highly skilled attorneys keep current with the most recent developments in personal injury law. Our firm retains well-qualified experts in medicine and economics to support our clients' cases. Our attorneys examine cases from every point of view. Traditional thought is that an attorney must represent defendants or plaintiffs, never both. Yet our corporate and insurance clients tell us time and again that defense lawyers who have a strong plaintiff practice bring balance and perspective to the negotiating table. The injured get the benefit of attorneys with defense experience.

Cases We Represent

We represent corporate and individual clients in claims alleging many types of negligent misconduct, including:

  • Auto accidents: There are approximately 6 million car accidents on U.S. roads and highways, and over 40,000 people die in car accidents every year, with millions of injuries reported.
  • Trucking accidents: Truck crashes result in over 5,000 fatalities and 150,000 injuries each year on our nation's roads and highways. Large trucks are involved in multiple-vehicle fatal crashes at twice the rate of passenger vehicles. Almost 800 large truck occupants, mainly truck drivers, die each year in these crashes.

Personal injury claims can also include:

  • Bus accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Workplace injuries
  • Train and railroad accidents
  • Plane crashes
  • Helicopter crashes
  • Construction accidents
  • Motorcycle, boat and bike accidents
  • Defective prescription drugs

  • Workplace injuries
  • Workers' compensation
  • Recreational accidents
  • Dog bites and animal attacks
  • Fires or explosions
  • Drowning

Anyone who is found to be negligent or reckless can be held legally accountable for causing harm to another individual. In fact, negligence is the determining factor in all injury cases — which is why an injury lawyer is vital for your case.
