Welcome to McCoy Peterson, Ltd.

Justice Served

The Experienced Choice

 The attorneys at McCoy Peterson, Ltd. have decades of combined experience in pursuing justice for people injured by automobile collisions, defective products, unsafe construction sites or practices, motorcycle accidents, and many other causes.

We serve the legal interests of individuals injured in or out of the workplace. Due to our extensive experience in representing injured workers and their survivors, we can be particularly helpful to people whose injuries are covered by workers compensation but also allow for a claim against an at-fault person or company.

We represent our clients on a contingency fee basis, and we are paid attorney fees only when we obtain recoveries for them. No “up-front” money is required and all initial consultations are free.

If you have been injured or lost a loved one due to the negligence of others, we hope you’ll consider contacting us to discuss your legal rights and remedies. We are confident that our experience, knowledge and proven track record of success can be of benefit to you.
