Many people that come to our office want to know if "they have a case." In order for us to determine if someone has a case, we must first know the type of claim that he or she has. A Personal injury claim arises when people are injured by the careless or intentional acts of others. When someone is determined to be responsible for injuring someone else, they may be liable for the injury, and it is possible that they will have to pay the injured person for their damages.
While we have handled cases in many other parts of the state, and in Federal Court, most of the cases we handle are located in Chesterfield, Marlboro, Darlington, Lee, and Dillon counties. We get many calls from North Carolina residents or persons injured just over the state line; in some cases we can help you, but in other cases, we reach out to a network of North Carolina attorneys to review the case.
There are many different types of personal injury claims. The most common types of personal injury claims that we accept are:
Slip and Fall Accidents
Nursing Home injuries
Claims Arising from Injuries at Work
Injuries suffered as a result of these types of accidents can be traumatic and life changing. We understand that your immediate goals after going through such trauma are to get your medical bills paid and covered, make sure you do not suffer financially, and to make sure you are compensated for any future treatment relating to your injury. Our experienced attorneys will discuss your situation and go over the options available to you, as well as work with insurance companies and other parties involved in your case to make sure all your needs are handled appropriately.
We offer competitive contingency fees rates which do not require you to pay out of pocket in most clear liability cases. You should always obtain verification of contingency fees in writing, before hiring an attorney.
Based upon strong word of mouth from our past clients, we have delivered legal victories for clients without Television advertising. As with anything in life, if you hire a company who advertises heavily; ask yourself, who pays for those ads?
Disclaimer: Every case is different and any result the lawyer or law firm may have achieved on behalf of clients in other matters does not necessarily indicate similar results can be obtained for other clients. Many cases are limited by the amount of insurance application to the claim and things like the County in which you were injured in, can be a major factor in the settlement or award. To ensure the utmost privacy for settlements, we provide non-exact figures of the gross settlements above which are less than the actual recoveries. It is important to remember, the actual funds you receive in compensation for your injury is affected by the contingency attorney fees, medical liens, and case expenses. In some complex cases, there is more than one firm representing the injured person.
