Personal Injury Lawyers
What to Expect from a Personal Injury Lawsuit
Don’t let the word “lawsuit” discourage you from talking with an attorney. More than 95 percent of cases settle before going to court, but if we have to take your case to trial, we’re ready to fight relentlessly for your right to compensation. You deserve an advocate that will stand up for you no matter what. That’s what we’re here for.
Insurance companies will often do whatever they can to avoid paying you the compensation you deserve. Our attorneys have more than 220+ years of combined experience fighting to hold these carriers accountable. Studies show that those who hire an attorney recover roughly 3 times more compensation on average than those who represent themselves.
North Carolina Personal Injury Laws
We know the North Carolina legal system inside and out. Every case is unique, but there are two primary factors that you need to consider when filing an injury claim or lawsuit:
1. statute of limitations.
Statutes of limitations are deadlines for filing a claim or lawsuit. In most cases in North Carolina, you have 3 years from the date of injury to file a personal injury claim, and 2 years from the date of death in wrongful death claims. Don’t wait to contact an attorney — the clock is ticking.
2. contributory negligence
North Carolina is a contributory negligence state, which means that if you are even partially responsible for an accident, you are barred from recovering compensation. However, our injury attorneys have extensive experience handling cases in which our clients are alleged to have contributed to the accident. We have tried and won many cases where defendants used the contributory negligence defense and we are ready to help you.
If you’ve been injured in North Carolina, don’t wait to contact our attorneys — the longer you wait, you risk missing the statute of limitations, and you may forfeit your right to compensation for your injuries. We are ready to help however we can. Please contact us today for a FREE, no-obligation case review.
Those who hire an attorney recover roughly 3 times more compensation on average.
The aftermath of an injury can be overwhelming. You don’t have to go through this alone. Contact Riddle & Brantley for a FREE, no-obligation case review.

What Our Clients have to say
“This settlement changed me and my family’s lives.”

I will always be thankful because this settlement changed me and my family’s lives. Thank you for a job very professionally done.”
“It was nice to see Riddle and Brantley put me and my needs first.”
“I took my case to Riddle & Brantley and found a great group of legal professionals and lawyers. The attorney working on my case was absolutely great. It was nice to see Riddle & Brantley put me and my needs first. I would strongly recommend contacting this firm to handle your needs. They get five stars from me … Kellie Felton was my case manager and what a lovely person, personality and with all the work she is doing she still found the time to handle my case on a personal level, which I feel takes a special person to do that. I have nothing but strong praises for Kellie.”
“They turned a heartbreaking situation completely around.”
“November 2017, my brother, passed away. I was his beneficiary for his life insurance to ensure his wishes were handled accordingly. However dealing with his employer and the insurance company became a living nightmare. At the end of my rope, I contacted Riddle and Brantley’s Law Firm in February 2018. Just in time too, there were only 3 days remaining before his life insurance would have went to the estate. IMMEDIATELY, Gene and his assistant met with me and started working on my behalf that day. I felt when I left that finally my brother’s funeral will be taken care off and I could fulfill my promise to my brother. Gene and staff stayed in contact with me throughout the entire case. If I should ever need an attorney in the future, I will be going straight back to Riddle & Brantley’s office. They turned a heartbreaking situation completely around. Gene would not just take the insurance company’s word, he pressed through and won the case on behalf of my sweet brother, Jimmy.”
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.
