Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law
The Affolter Gannon law firm is uniquely suited to fight for the rights of victims injured in accidents because Mike Gannon and Dick Affolter used to be among Vermont's premiere insurance defense lawyers. The AG team were the attorneys insurance companies called when claims were asserted against them. In fact, Mike and Dick received awards from insurance companies and were asked to instruct their adjusters how to handle legal issues. A little more than ten years ago, AG made the decision to "switch teams" and to represent injured claimants who are being treated unfairly by insurance companies. We...

I have been practicing law in Vermont since 1979 and am a founding partner of the firm.

For me, being an injury lawyer all started with a batch of homemade cookies.
Well, maybe it started a little bit earlier…

The other day my mother pulled something out of the basement, framed it and put it on my desk.

While it wasn’t a box of old cookies (which I will get to in a moment) it was my political platform for running for third-grade class president.

Like the Constitution, it set out a framework based on equality and justice for all.

I laugh at it now, because, in this day and age, what kind of equality and justice would I have needed to...

Injured in an accident?

When a person is injured, tort law will govern whether that person may be compensated for the injury, the amount of compensation that may be recovered, as well as which parties will be liable for the injury. Tort law, also known as injury law, comes from federal and state codes, as well as judicial opinions from prior cases. The amount of damages a plaintiff to a personal injury action may receive can be determined by statute, or by a judge or jury. Typical recoveries may include compensatory damages (e.g., lost wages, medical bills, etc.) and in particularly egregious situations, punitive damages. In some cases, a plaintiff may recover certain non-economic damages such as pain and suffering, loss of consortium, or loss of enjoyment of life.

Personal injury lawyers help injured people seek compensation from those who have harmed them. Some injury attorneys focus on a specific type of case, such as truck accidents, car accidents, slip-and-fall injuries, medical malpractice or products liability cases. If a person is injured as a result of criminal behavior, it may be appropriate to pursue a personal injury lawsuit in addition to the state's criminal investigation or prosecution.

Many personal injury attorneys offer a free consultation to evaluate your claim.


Negligence: Failure to use care which a reasonable and prudent person would use under similar circumstances.

Joint and several liability: A legal doctrine that makes each of the parties who are responsible for an injury, liable for all the damages awarded in a lawsuit if the other parties responsible cannot pay.
