Personal Injury

If you or a family member has suffered physical, emotional, psychological and/or financial damages as the result of another’s negligence, you have a right to take legal action by filing a personal injury lawsuit.  Our firm represents victims throughout North Carolina. Since 1995, we have filed suit and litigated cases in all 100 counties of North Carolina.

In the past several years, our firm has achieved excellent results in multiple significant claims for our clients in personal injury matters. Some were litigated through trial, and others were settled before filing suit. For example, in one case in 2017 we obtained a settlement of $600,000 for a personal injury lawsuit we filed. We try very hard to obtain the best result for our clients.

Every member of our firm is fully invested in each personal injury case.  We invest our time, our resources, our experience, and our professional reputations into every case we accept.

Our law firm has filed suit against many large corporations and big businesses, and we have achieved success in many cases.  With that said, every case involves a degree of uncertainty and a degree of risk.  Our lawyers understand the anxiety and worry our clients experience.  Although it can take a long time to reach a verdict or a settlement in a case, you can count on our law firm to be at your side for however long it takes to achieve justice on your behalf.

Most of our clients have been ordinary people facing the biggest challenge of their lives due to a serious and traumatic injury.  They have been children hurt in bike accidents, workers burned in explosions, motorcycle riders who were seriously injured, and construction workers who fell from cranes.  We also represent families who have lost a loved one to wrongful death.

What all these people have in common is that their injuries were serious, their lives were changed, and they all chose to work with us.  They knew that having a respected law firm working on their behalf would help them achieve the financial recovery they needed.

 

Car Accidents:

Car accidents have long been a common cause of personal injury and death.  When filing a personal injury claim, an injured person can hold responsible the driver(s) liable for their negligent driving and recover the damages they suffered.  Was your car accident caused by the other driver’s negligence or other auto defects?  Our in-house investigators and attorneys know how to analyze your case to find out who is responsible.

 

Truck Accidents:

Commercial trucks pose significant dangers to other drivers on our public roads and highways.  Our lawyers are familiar with the federal trucking laws and regulations, and are passionate about fighting on behalf of injured truck accident victims.  Our attorneys understand federal regulations and will hold those who disregard these standards accountable when their negligence causes accidents, injuries, or death.

 

Wrongful Death:

When the negligence, carelessness or misconduct of another causes death, in North Carolina certain surviving family members of the decedent have a right to file a wrongful death claim to recover damages.   Our lawyers compassionately guide families through this difficult experience and act to hold responsible parties accountable.

 

Catastrophic Injuries:

Catastrophic injuries are injuries that result in physical damage that results in the need for serious medical treatment and/ or long-term care.  Our firm represents catastrophically injured victims and we are prepared to handle even the most challenging of cases, including head, neck and spine injuries, traumatic brain injuries, burn injuries, paralysis, and other claims where the client has been severely and irrevocably injured.

 

Bicycle Accidents:

By law, bicyclists are considered vehicles with the same rights and responsibilities as drivers of automobiles.  When bicyclists obey the rules of the road yet still suffer injuries in accidents caused by careless drivers, they have a right to pursue compensation.  When a bicyclist and a motor vehicle get in an accident, the cyclist rarely walks away.  Our law firm stands up for the rights of injured bicyclists and helps them obtain just compensation for damages.  We also represent motorcycle accident victims.

 

Motorcycle Accidents:

Motorcycle riders face high risks of suffering injury and death during a motorcycle accident.  By helping riders prove the negligence of other drivers and fighting aggressively, our lawyers can secure the compensation inured riders deserve.

 

Premises Liability:

Premises liability is an area of law that hold premises owners accountable for the injuries visitors and guests suffer while on their property, including those arising from slip and fall accidents.

 

Medical Malpractice:

Doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals are required to uphold a certain standard of care when diagnosing and treating patients.  When they fail to do so, patients and families can hold them liable by filing a medical malpractice claim.  Common types of medical malpractice claims include birth injuries, surgical errors, emergency room errors, diagnostic errors, and the like. Our attorneys have in excess of 70 years experience handling these type of claims.

 

Pedestrian Accidents:

Drivers are required by law to be aware of the pedestrians with whom they share the roads.  When pedestrians suffer injuries or death caused by a driver who disobeyed traffic laws or drove negligently, our firm can work on their behalf to ensure that justice is obtained and that careless drivers are held liable for compensating victims.  On a sidewalk or in a crosswalk, pedestrians are vulnerable to negligent drivers.
