At Baggett, McCall, Burgess, Watson & Gaughan, LLC, we focus on making sure that personal injury victims and the families of wrongful death victims are fairly compensated for their losses. When choosing your attorney, it is important to consider whether you will be able to fully trust and depend on your legal team to handle every aspect of your case, from investigations, to negotiations and settlement and through complex litigation when necessary.

The law provides consequences for citizens and businesses that fail to adhere to certain standards of behavior and competence. When one party’s negligence causes injury to another person, the law provides a remedy. If you or someone you love has suffered as the result of another’s action or inaction — either intentionally or accidentally — please contact us to protect your rights. Choose your lawyer carefully.
