Compassionate & Caring Representation

At the Law Office of James H. Wood PC, we know that when a person has been severely injured or when a family has lost a loved one in a personal injury or wrongful death case, there are often overwhelming problems. These problems include unpaid medical bills, job loss, lost wages, funeral expenses, physical pain, emotional suffering, despair, depression, anger, frustration, guilt, and grief. We understand the difficulties you are facing.

You need to know that you are not alone. Our firm can help you. James Wood will personally participate in your case from start to finish. When James is out of the office, he is normally available by cell phone or email. We believe in aggressive yet compassionate representation. Nothing can change what has happened to you or take away your physical and emotional pain. But we will be there for you. We will care about you as a human being who has suffered a horrible loss and not as just another client or number.

We believe that spending time with our clients is the most important part of our job. We cannot properly represent you unless we walk in your shoes and experience what you are experiencing.

Types of Injury Claims

Our practice is limited to personal-injury, wrongful-death, and civil-rights cases. We do not represent clients in other areas of the law, such as family law, breach of contract, and commercial litigation. We limit our practice to personal-injury, wrongful-death, and civil-rights cases so that we can provide the best representation we are capable of providing in those areas of the law.

We handle a wide range of injury cases including:

Timing Is an Important Part of Prosecuting Your Case

If you have been injured or if you have lost a loved one due to negligence, recklessness, malice, or greed, timing is often an important part of prosecuting your case. Witnesses will need to be interviewed before their memories fade. Accident sites will need to be inspected and photographed before they are changed. Dangerous products will need to be examined and photographed before they are altered or repaired. Medical records will need to be gathered. At our firm, we have the resources to properly and promptly investigate your case.
