While our lawyers give every client the attention and dedication they deserve, the outcome in this client’s case was specific to his or her case. Each case is different, and the outcome of any case depends upon a variety of factors unique to that case.

North Carolina Personal Injury Laws

Every personal injury case governed by certain laws in the North Carolina civil justice system. While every situation is unique, there are several laws that affect most personal injury cases:

1. statute of limitations. Statutes of limitations are deadlines for filing. In North Carolina, a plaintiff has three years after the date of injury to file a personal injury suit and two years from the date of death for a wrongful death claim. Don’t miss your deadline, or else you could lose the right to file.

2. shared fault laws. If a plaintiff shares a percentage of liability for an accident, it could impact how much he or she gets for the lawsuit. North Carolina is a contributory negligence state, meaning any percentage of fault will bar the plaintiff from recovery. It’s important to hire a lawyer to help prevent this from happening. Our attorneys have tried and won cases where the defendants argued that our clients contributed to the accident.

Don’t wait too long to discuss your claim with an attorney. Waiting could put you at risk of missing a crucial deadline and forfeiting the opportunity to obtain compensation. The courts only grant exceptions in rare cases. Contact us right away for your best chance at securing compensation. Our initial consultations are always confidential and free.

What to Expect from a Personal Injury Lawsuit

Don’t let the word “lawsuit” discourage you from seeking legal counsel. Most personal injury cases successfully settle without ever entering the courtroom. Contacting a lawyer does not necessarily mean a lengthy legal process; an experienced personal injury attorney can actually expedite the process and get the results you deserve as quickly as possible.

Often, the knowledge that you have the power to go to court is enough to help convince an insurance company to settle your claim for more money. Insurers don’t want to go to court, where they may have to pay attorney’s fees and court costs. When you retain an attorney, you’re telling the insurance company that you aren’t afraid to go to trial. If a settlement doesn’t get the results you want, however, we’ll take your case to trial in pursuit of full compensation.

With an attorney by your side, the legal process is much less daunting. We’ll take care of all the legwork on your case, filling out and filing your claim well within the state’s deadline. You won’t be in the dark about your lawsuit, either; we’ll keep you informed every step of the way. When we take over your case, you can rest assured it’s in good hands.

Adopting a Pet and Support the Humane Society

There’s no better companion than an animal! If you saw Coconut’s debut in our 2011 public service announcement, you know the Riddle family’s position on how an adopted pet can enrich your life and the lives of your family members. Not only does a pet bring love and companionship into your home, there are proven health effects to owning a companion animal, such as lessened anxiety, lower rates of depression and lower blood pressure.

Do yourself a favor. Visit a pet shelter. Adopt a cat or a dog. It will change that animal’s life, and it will change yours forever.
