Personal Injury Lawyers
We don't plan for accidents to happen, but they can leave us at a serious loss when they do. Because they are so unpredictable, questions begin to mount about how you will pay your bills and provide for your family. In most cases, the financial, physical, and emotional setbacks of a serious accident turn out to be far more complicated than many people initially anticipate. Nothing is the same as it was before the accident, and you don't know whether it will ever be again.
A personal injury claim can help you in your financial recovery, allowing you to focus on reclaiming your life after an accident. Unfortunately, insurance companies and negligent parties have a way of making you feel helpless and overwhelmed by trying to shift responsibility to you. However, victims are not without recourse and may be entitled to compensation for their losses, giving them a real chance to recover physically and financially.
At Henson Fuerst, your recovery is of the utmost importance to us. We'll deal with the insurance company, the paperwork and fight to secure the long-term financial recovery you need to support you and your family now and in the future. We pride ourselves on providing our clients with the highest level of customer service and are committed to protecting their rights against negligent parties and insurance companies.
The Insurance Company Doesn’t Care About What You’ve Lost
Dealing with insurance companies can be intimidating. Rather than considering a victim's needs, many insurance adjusters only focus on minimizing the compensation they payout. They work for the insurance company, not for you, so their objective is to make money. They may offer a low-ball settlement and attempt to pressure you into settling quickly. They aren't there to make things easy for you, no matter how much you're struggling.
You don't have to accept their offer and should not settle when your future is on the line. Your injuries matter and getting the compensation you need for medical expenses and treatment matters. You need someone who will stand by your side and fight for the compensation you need to recover.
Your Case Is About More Than Money. It’s About Making Things Right.
Unlike the insurance adjuster, your personal injury lawyer at Henson Fuerst will always have your best interests at heart and will fight tirelessly on your behalf. You and your family's needs are our top priority, and we'll treat you with the fairness, compassion, and understanding you deserve. We are passionate about making a difference in the lives of our clients, and we’ll do everything we can to help you get the compensation you need to restore your freedom and quality of life. No matter the type of personal injury you're facing, we're here to help. Contact us today by calling 919-781-1107 or by submitting a free consultation form online.

How Do I Know If I Have A Personal Injury Claim?
It's not always obvious whether or not an accident victim has a valid personal injury claim. By definition, personal injury is a term that refers to situations in which a person has the legal right to sue another person or entity for harm caused by their illegal actions. In general, a personal injury claim may occur when three essential factors are present:
- The responsible party was careless (negligent).
- The negligence caused the personal injury.
- The injury resulted in harm (compensatory damages).

What If The Other Party Denies Responsibility?
Regrettably, this is very common. Legally liable individuals are rarely prepared to step forward and assume full financial responsibility for their actions. That is why it is critical to hire an experienced North Carolina personal injury lawyer to help you establish a solid claim and actively negotiate with the other party's insurance company and defense attorneys to hold them accountable.
How Much Time Do I Have To File A Personal Injury Claim in North Carolina?
The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in North Carolina permits an injured individual three years from the date of the injury to bring a lawsuit in civil court. However, there are numerous components to the statute of limitations, and certain variables might affect the length of time you have to file a case.
How Much Is My Claim Worth?
It is very hard to assess the worth of a case immediately following an accident. The amount of compensation you should receive for a personal injury claim is determined by several criteria, some of which require the help of a personal injury attorney to identify, such as:
- Medical costs
- Both present and future lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of companionship
