Personal Injury and Wrongful Death:

Our firm represents persons injured by others. These cases range from automobile, truck and motorcycle wrecks to malpractice by health professionals. But all these situations have one thing in common: physical injury accompanied by pain. No one wants to be hurt by someone else; but, if they are, then they deserve just compensation. Insurance companies, on the other hand, have the opposite goal: wear down the injured person and minimize monetary recovery. Our attorneys believe that representing an injured party gives them the opportunity to help someone and we will work hard to maximize the recovery.

Please be aware of the North Carolina statute of limitations in personal injury cases. The statute for any personal injury caused by the negligence of another is three years from the date of injury and that includes medical malpractice. The time limitation for filing a lawsuit in a wrongful death case, however, is only two years from the date of death.

We have obtained compensation for certain clients in excess of one million dollars. But that does not keep us from representing clients in smaller cases. We also evaluate every injury case not only in terms of negligence by some other person but also as to product liability, for example, crashworthiness of an automobile.
