Accident Overview

Many injury claims concern an accident of some kind. Car accidents, slip and falls, dangerous products and construction collapses all have the potential to cause severe injuries, permanent disability and/or wrongful death. In most cases, you can file a personal injury claim after an accident to recover compensation for your medical bills, wage loss and other damages from the liable party. If the accident occurred while you were performing your job, then you may file a workers compensation claim with your employer in addition to third party lawsuits. No matter what kind of accident caused your injuries, an attorney can assist you in filing a claim. Having legal counsel on your side can protect your right to full and fair compensation.

What Kinds of Accidents Does Our Law Firm Represent?

If you or a loved one has been hurt in an accident, then turn to Riddle & Brantley for compassionate representation. We handle virtually all types of accident claims, including:

  • Car Accidents – A car crash can change your life in an instant. Unfortunately, auto accidents are among the leading causes of death in our state and nation. If you or a loved one suffered injuries in a car accident, then you need a car accident lawyer in Goldsboro you can trust. If the crash was not your fault, then you should not have to suffer the consequences.
  • Construction Accidents – Workers in the construction field face danger every day from negligent employers and contractors. In fact, construction accidents cause one in five on-the-job deaths in the nation. After a work injury, we can pursue benefits through the workers compensation system. If possible, our personal injury attorneys will also file claims against third parties for additional compensation.
  • Truck Accidents– Large commercial trucks are a constant presence on our highways. Truck drivers are under pressure to deliver on time. Thus, they may take risks that result in death or serious personal injuries. Defective equipment, improperly loaded cargo and poor maintenance can also cause accidents.
  • Motorcycle Accidents – Motorcyclists are among the most vulnerable travelers on the road. An accident can leave a motorcyclist with disabilities for a lifetime, particularly if the brain or spinal cord sustains damage.
  • Bike Accidents – When a motor vehicle hits a bicycle, the bicyclist usually suffers the most serious injuries, especially if the cyclist is a child. If another vehicle hit you while riding a bike, we can help protect your rights.
  • Pedestrian Accidents – A pedestrian accident carries a high risk of wrongful death, catastrophic injury or permanent disability. If a driver’s inattention or other mistake caused you harm, then you have the right to pursue compensation.
  • Work Accidents – An accident can occur in any workplace, even an office or hospital. A work injury can cause serious medical expenses and loss of income. Workers compensation exists to provide benefits that cover these kinds of costs. We understand the workers comp system and will work to help you get the benefits you deserve. Additionally, we even have North Carolina State Bar certified specialists in Workers Compensation on our staff.
  • Slip and Fall Accidents – Slip and fall accidents can be serious and even deadly. Permanent, disabling brain and spinal cord injuries can be the results of falls. If the owner of the property is responsible for the condition that caused your slip and fall accident, then we will work to hold that party accountable.
