Dixon & Thompson Areas of Practice


We only take on cases where there are serious injuries or death or substantial disputes with businesses, insurance companies, or corporations. Frivolous lawsuits cheat everyone. Before taking on a client, we investigate thoroughly and only accept claims with merit. If there is no insurance available to compensate someone with an injury or damage, or if there’s nothing to be gained in court, there’s no point in pursuing a claim.

Personal Injury, Wrongful Death, Workers’ Compensation

We handle personal injury and wrongful death cases caused by car accidents, truck accidents, catastrophic injuries, and construction accidents. Our firm also handles serious workers’ compensation matters where there’s death or permanent injury.
