What Cases Do We Handle?
Have you been injured in a motor vehicle accident, an accident involving a common carrier, or a drunk driver? No matter the case, we have experience litigating these cases and can help you every step of the way. Here is an overview of some of the cases we handle in North Carolina when you have been injured due to the negligence of another.
Auto Accidents: Every year in North Carolina, thousands of people are injured in car accidents. Unfortunately, after a car accident has struck, you may be left with severe injuries that leave a lasting impact on your life and may not know where to turn. Many people know that it is obvious to receive medical treatment as soon as possible, but how do you compensate for your losses? You may be able to receive damages for things like medical expenses, past and future lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and more. You will have to be able to show the 4 elements of your case: duty, breach of duty, causation, and harm, caused by a negligent defendant. The other party will have to be proven liable in your case, so start with an attorney who can help you through these many aspects.
Motorcycle Accidents: Motorcycle riders have very little in the way of protection like other drivers on the roadways who drive vehicles that are enclosed and thousands of pounds heavier. Motorcycle accidents can lead to unexpected, catastrophic injuries, especially when a rider is thrown from their bike. Drivers don’t always see motorcycle riders in some cases, which means that accidents can be caused by speeding, driving under the influence, failing to check blind spots, and failing to yield to those on motorcycles. All of these actions can lead to devastating results like permanent disability and even death. When a driver has acted negligently and you have been injured, you have a right to compensation.
Pedestrian Accidents: Pedestrians are owed a special duty of care by the drivers that share the roads with them because they are highly susceptible to receive the worst injuries in accidents. Negligence occurs in many of these cases, from improper lane use, unmarked crosswalks at intersections, left-hand turn accidents, distracted driving when drivers are using cell phones, and more. No matter what type of negligence caused your pedestrian accident, they have violated their duty to you and broke the law in some way. You can retain your rights by speaking to an attorney about your pedestrian accident case.
Commercial Vehicle Accidents: Businesses are thriving in North Carolina, which is why you see many commercial vehicles driving to and from businesses, transporting goods from one place to another. However, with so many commercial vehicles on the roads, there is also a higher chance of accidents. Some of these include passenger cars, vans, box trucks, delivery vehicles, and so many more. These cases are unique because either the driver of the vehicle or the company who employed the driver could be found liable depending on the circumstances of your case. You could be owed for a variety of aspects like medical expenses, pain and suffering, and more.
Truck Accidents: Truck accidents happen on a daily basis in the U.S., with many trucks dominating the roadways in certain areas. Most often you will see injuries that are catastrophic in nature tied to these accidents. They happen for a variety of reasons, like equipment failure, driving errors, avoiding the many regulations that govern trucks, and more. You may see multiple parties liable for your injuries in these cases, such as the driver or the trucking company, and even those responsible for loading cargo. If regulations have been avoided, then a driver or another party could be liable for your injuries.
Wrongful Death: Has a loved one been involved in a highly serious accident that has claimed their life? If your loved one lost their life due to an accident, you may be able to bring a claim on their behalf for aspects that have affected you or them on a financial or emotional level. This includes lost wages from your loved one, loss of companionship, and more. But you should always act quickly, as you may not have long to file.
