We don’t practice in every area of law. Instead, Jackson Jones specializes in personal injury cases. For over a decade, Clint Jones has worked in this area of law, focused on handling personal injury cases, first as a defense attorney, and then as a plaintiff’s lawyer, and in so doing has developed a wealth of experience having successfully litigated hundreds of cases. At Jackson Jones, we use a team approach. We learn about our client, their circumstances, and their needs. And we pursue their case in a workmanlike manner, with the client’s best interests as the foremost objective.
Persons injured at work often benefit from consultation with an attorney. Generally speaking, there are two types of worker compensation claims, one where the injury occurs at work and is the result of some condition or instance that is created wholly by the employer or its agents. The second is a situation where the person is on the clock but is injured by a third party that is not associated with (in the control of) the employer. For instance, an employee may be driving to a job site, and be involved in an accident with another driver. In that case, the employee has a potential claim against the third party. Jackson Jones provides free consultations to those injured at work, to help them understand whether they have a viable third party claim, or whether their claim is limited to the remedies available under the Worker’s Compensation system.
