"...with Jim fighting on my behalf I ultimately received justice."
"There is a deep sense of reassurance to have someone in your corner. An advocate. Someone who is willing to roll up their sleeves and fight on your behalf. Jim is that person. I was was in an auto collision over four years ago and I quickly learned how helpless one can feel dealing with an insurance company while trying to rehabilitate. After a year and half of frustration I found Jim. It was such a relief. Jim focused first on my injury, making sure I was receiving exceptional medical care and then on my case. He made a frustrating process manageable. He was a pleasure to work with and made me feel like more than a client. The case ended in court and with Jim fighting on my behalf I ultimately received justice.”

At Dixon & Cannon, Ltd. we understand slip and fall cases. We know that all too often injured people are victimized twice in these types of cases–first when they are hurt on the property, and second when the property owner attempts to shirk responsibility by blaming the injured person’s own carelessness.
Because we were senior trial attorneys for insurance companies, we know what claim representatives look at when evaluating whether their insured person is responsible for the injury. We also know the type of expert testimony that can help prove the existence of a dangerous condition on a property. We look forward to using this knowledge, along with our negotiation and trial skills, to represent you in your slip and fall case.
