Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Claims
Our goal is to obtain full and fair compensation for our clients either by settlement or at trial. A full and fair settlement can only be obtained if the insurance company is persuaded that the injured person is ready, willing, and able to aggressively and competently present their evidence to a jury. With over 50 years experience and proven ability in the trial of these cases, our firm has established a reputation which helps to assure that our clients' claims will be evaluated with the knowledge that we will be willing and able to present their claim in court. It is our policy to treat each case from the beginning as if it is definitely going to trial in order to be prepared to negotiate from a position of strength and to go to trial if negotiations fail.
Why You Should Consult an Attorney
Liability insurance companies are obligated to protect the person who caused the injuries and have no duty to act in your best interest. Thus, the person causing injury is well represented by their insurance company (with all of its vast resources, professional trained adjusters, and experienced attorneys) putting you at a tremendous disadvantage without the assistance of an experienced attorney.
Also, the law of North Carolina allows compensation for numerous types of damages caused by injury or death but it provides no fixed formula for calculating the amount of compensation due. What is fair will vary greatly from case to case depending upon the circumstances and the evidence presented.
Our attorneys provide consultation at no cost. If we do accept your case, we will do so on a contingent fee basis - which means you will pay no legal fees unless we successfully resolve your case.
