HURT?  We can help.


Being injured or ill can be physically painful, debilitating, emotionally exhausting, and financially devastating. Millions of American families are left in debt after receiving medical attention for an injury and others suffer from the impact of missing work, whether for a short time or a lifetime.  Even more walk around with painful or disfiguring injuries that medicine simply cannot fix.  Their families often suffer with them.


If you or someone you love has sustained any type of injury in an accident caused by another person or business, it is important that you have a Stevens and Ward personal injury lawyer review your situation immediately.  We have recovered over $130 million for the victims of injuries in just the last decade and our combined 47 years of personal injury legal experience can help insure your claim gets the respect, and compensation, it deserves.  We have a large, friendly, capable and creative staff to support the needs of your claim.
