AND WRONGFUL DEATH
Our firm has a history of protecting the rights of people who have been injured by the negligence of other individuals or companies. We are relentless in providing a voice to the voiceless in courtrooms throughout North Carolina and the country, and we have a record of obtaining outstanding results for our clients in personal injury and wrongful death cases.
We firmly believe that personal injury lawsuits serve two important purposes. The first is to compensate victims for a third party’s negligence. The second is to hold the negligent party accountable for an injury or death that could and should have been avoided.
TYPES OF PERSONAL INJURY CASES WE HANDLE
What is a Wrongful Death?
A claim for wrongful death is a specific type of personal injury claim that is brought when the victim does not survive the other party’s negligence. In North Carolina, the statute of limitations for a wrongful death claim is only two years, so it is important to hire an experienced attorney who won’t make costly mistakes.
Why You Need a Personal Injury Lawyer With Experience
Our lawyers have substantial experience in personal injury cases, which include car and truck accidents, medical malpractice, workplace injuries, police brutality, and jail and detention officer misconduct. While past results do not guarantee any outcomes in future cases, we have collected millions of dollars in settlements and judgments on behalf of our personal injury clients.
Our experienced lawyers can help you determine whether you have a valid case, and if so, we will help you maximize the amount you can recover. Our firm has decades of experience going against well-funded business an insurance companies, and we don’t back down. Choosing the right law firm can mean the difference between an unorganized, sloppy case that lets the company off the hook, or a well-thought and financed, comprehensive approach that delivers justice.
HOW MUCH IS MY CASE WORTH?
Every case is different, and a number of factors influence the settlement value or how much a jury might award. For example, pain and suffering is a common component of damages and can be based on how much actual paid the victim of negligence actually experiences. Another measure of damages is lost wages, meaning, if a victim is unable to work as a result of his or her injury, that person should be compensated for lost wages. Medical bills also can factor into the value of a case. Even with health insurance, an injured party is often still obligated to pay his or her health care provider for treatment associated with an injury, and therefore, the person or company at fault should be obligated to pay.
HOW MUCH WILL A PERSONAL INJURY CASE COST ME?
We represent clients in personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that the client only pays attorney’s fees if we recover an amount on the client’s behalf. We take on personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis because we believe in every case that we take. By aligning our financial interest with our clients’, we understand how to evaluate cases and determine whether to settle them or take them to trial.
