At Kerrigan, Estess, Rankin, McLeod & Thompson, LLP our law practice is dedicated exclusively to individuals and families who have suffered serious personal injury and accidental death. We understand how insurance companies take advantage of the confusion and vulnerability of accident victims and their families, undermining legitimate claims and offering unreasonably low settlements.

Our lawyers prepare each case as if it will go to trial, and we have a record of successfully recovering large settlements and jury verdicts on behalf of our clients. We bring to bear all the resources necessary to maximize recovery, from investigating every aspect of your case to locating experts who can deliver powerful and persuasive testimony regarding the extent and cause of your injuries. We work closely with accident reconstruction engineers, doctors, product developers and other specialists to identify strengths and weaknesses and help us formulate the best arguments possible.

From our home office in Pensacola, Florida, and locations in Panama City, Fort Walton Beach, Port St. Joe and Crestview, our skilled and compassionate attorneys represent clients with a variety of injuries and losses:

Importance of Investigation

Timely investigation is one of the most critical aspects of an injury or death case, whether caused by an automobile accident, medical malpractice, defective product or other negligence.

 

As soon as a client retains us, our dedicated and skilled investigators begin to uncover and preserve evidence, interview witnesses, and identify special needs. We encourage you to consult with an attorney immediately following an injury or accidental death—before memories fade, evidence degrades or crucial witnesses can no longer be located.

 

If you or a loved one has been injured due to the negligence of another, contact Kerrigan, Estess, Rankin, McLeod & Thompson LLP today. We will work tirelessly to protect your rights and get you the compensation you deserve.
