If you've been seriously injured in an accident or due to medical malpractice, finding the right Maine personal injury lawyer to protect your rights and interests can seem overwhelming. With all those TV lawyers out there acting tough, it's hard to know what to believe and who you can trust.

All top-rated guidebooks on how to choose the best personal injury lawyer focus on four important factors you should consider: (1) the lawyer's experience handling personal injury cases and taking cases to trial; (2) the results that the lawyer has obtained for his clients; (3) the lawyer's reputation for trustworthiness and honesty; and (4) overall client satisfaction.

At Peter Thompson & Associates, our hard-earned reputation as Maine's premier personal injury law firm was built on two decades of obtaining excellent results for our clients and treating our clients with respect. Attorney Thompson's legal team consists of award-winning attorneys with over 60 years combined experience in personal injury law, expert case managers, paralegals, private investigators, and board-certified physician consultants. Unlike most other firms, we work as a team, bringing together our experience and expertise, and thereby achieving the best possible results for our clients.

And we've proven that this approach works. Our track record includes several nationally-reported victories and precedent-setting court decisions, as well as over 100 successful jury trials. In 2016 alone, our Maine personal injury attorneys have obtained over $15,000,000 for our clients and were voted, for the 9th year running, "Best Personal Injury Lawyer" in both Portland and Bangor.

Individuals and families who have been seriously injured in accidents trust us to handle their cases not only because of our reputation for obtaining excellent results, but also for giving our clients the compassion, respect, and attention they deserve. Our clients have rated our firm 4.9 out of 5 stars for "Quality of Service," "Communication Ability," and "Responsiveness," with 100% stating that they “would recommend” our firm to others. (Click here to see actual client survey responses.) At Peter Thompson & Associates, every client matters to us.

We Fulfill Our Promises.

Being the best means more to us than just winning cases--it is just as important to us that our clients can trust that we will fulfill our promises to them. Our reputation for honesty and integrity earned us an "A+" rating from the Better Business Bureau, its highest rating. "The ratings represent the Better Business Bureau's degree of confidence that a business is operating in a trustworthy manner and will make a good faith effort to resolve any customer concerns."

Attorney Thompson has also received a “Very High” ethical standards rating from Martindale-Hubbell, a well-respected peer review organization that receives input from judges and others in the legal community.

Our Maine Personal Injury Lawyers Represent Accident Victims Statewide.

Attorney Thompson has represented injured Mainers from almost every town and city throughout the State. Because most insurance companies and their attorneys are based in either Portland or Bangor, we maintain offices in those cities. If you don’t live near one of our offices, we’ll come to you. We routinely do home and hospital visits. If you’d prefer to meet in an office, we can arrange to meet you in conference room in or near your home town at a time that is convenient for you. We have office meeting locations in Kittery, Wells, Sanford, Kennebunk, Biddeford, Old Orchard Beach, South Portland, Portland, Westbrook, Gorham, Falmouth, Yarmouth, Freeport, Brunswick, Bath, Lewiston, Auburn, Gardiner, Augusta, Waterville, Skowhegan, Camden, Rockland, Belfast, Newport, Bangor, Ellsworth, Bar Harbor, Machias, Calais, Houlton, and Presque Isle.

We strive to make the entire process as easy as possible for you. Almost all of the information we need to put your case together can be obtained over the phone, by mail, or email.

Injured while visiting Maine but live out of State? No problem.

Attorney Thompson also represents many people who live out-of-state who were injured during a trip to Maine. In the vast majority of cases, we can successfully settle cases for our out-of-state clients without requiring them to return to Maine.

If you don’t collect money, you don’t have to pay for our services.

Because the vast majority of our clients cannot afford to hire an attorney, we represent accident and medical malpractice victims on a contingent fee basis, which means we are paid a percentage of what you recover. (The percentage varies based on the type of case. Call or email us for specifics.)

Our goal: Obtaining settlements for our clients that are significantly greater than if they handled their cases on their own.

If you’re concerned that paying for our services will result in you receiving less money than if you settled the case on your own, consider this: the insurance industry’s own studies have shown that people who have an attorney handle their cases receive, on average, significantly more compensation than if they handled their cases on their own. The Insurance Research Council (IRC), an organization funded by insurance companies, performed a study in 1999 that compared settlements paid to accident victims who hired lawyers with the settlements received by people who handled cases on their own. The IRC study showed that, on the average, people represented by a personal injury attorney received 3 ½ times more money than those who didn’t hire a lawyer. Bottom line: in the vast majority of cases, hiring an experienced personal injury attorney will result in more compensation for you, without the hassle and stress of having to deal with an insurance company.

Client Reviews
"The best thing about working with PT&A is the quality of service you provide. In my view, my personal injury case carried as much importance to the PT&A team as it did to me. That is immeasurably significant. PT&A did an excellent job providing counsel, gathering pertinent case information, communicating updates and progress, developing a comprehensive settlement demand package, and corresponding with multiple insurance company adjusters. PT&A's leadership and experience in personal injury cases produced the best possible outcome for me."
