PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEYS WHO CARE ABOUT YOU
We Get You The Maximum Compensation
Often, the insurance company for the person who caused the injury will try to settle with you before you have an opportunity to retain an attorney. The reason for this is that the insurance company knows it can probably settle the case for less money if you do not have a lawyer. We will investigate your case and obtain the necessary witness statements, documents, photographs, and other materials to protect your rights.
We Vigorously Investigate Your Situation
There is no charge for your first visit or telephone call. All your questions will be answered, and there is no obligation. We never charge a fee unless we obtain a recovery for you. Our fee is a percentage of your recovery. We will advance all costs for investigators, experts, filing fees, and other expenses associated with trying to obtain the maximum recovery possible. If a recovery is not made, you pay us nothing.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if I need a personal injury attorney?
If you or a family member becomes injured because of someone else's negligence, you can benefit from speaking to a personal injury lawyer. Often, the insurance company for the person who caused the injury will try to settle with you before you have an opportunity to retain an attorney. The reason for this is that the insurance company knows it can probably settle the case for less money if you do not have a lawyer. We will investigate your case and obtain the necessary witness statements, documents, photographs, and other materials to protect your rights.
How long do I have to file a claim?
You must file your case within the statute of limitations—a fixed period of time dictated by the law. In North Carolina most personal injury cases have a three-year statute of limitations and wrongful death cases have a two-year statute of limitations. There are some exceptions to this, however, so every case must be individually reviewed by an attorney. For an explanation of these time limits, always consult with a lawyer experienced in these matters.
Will I have to go to court?
If the insurance company for the person who caused the injury is willing to offer a fair settlement, you do not have to bring a lawsuit in order to obtain a recovery. We are skilled at negotiating settlements without filing lawsuits. In the event the insurance company is not willing to negotiate fairly, we will then proceed with filing a lawsuit, if you so desire.
Who may bring an action for damages in a personal injury case?
A competent adult, who is age 18 or older and injured, must bring the lawsuit in his or her name. A minor or an incompetent adult must have a lawsuit brought by either his or her parents or a court-appointed guardian.
I was injured but may have been partly at fault. Can I still sue?
Maybe. In many North Carolina cases, the doctrine of contributory negligence may prevent you from being able to make a claim for your injuries. There are exceptions to this rule. We recommend talking with one of our experienced injury lawyers to analyze you particular situation.
