“Riddle & Brantley was founded on the principle that everyone deserve justice. It’s what we fight for every day.” -Gene Riddle
Examples of the cases we handle include:
- Truck Accident | $2.25 million —Attorney Gene Riddle settled the case after mediations that continued for weeks. Our clients were the two sons, one age 9 and the other age 22, at the time of the fatal accident. The other driver ran across the double yellow lines and hit our client head on, killing her instantly. Gene Riddle was instrumental in having a trust set up for the minor child with his share of the proceeds of the settlement.
- Motorcycle Accident | $1 million — Our client was seriously injured when another vehicle turned left in front of his cycle. He suffered multiple broken bones in his left arm resulting in more than two surgeries to correct the damage to his arm and a pelvis fracture. He incurred approximately $250,000 in medical bills and $16,000 in lost wages. Gene Riddle settled the case for the limits of the other driver’s insurance of $1,000,000.
- Premises Liability & Worker’s Compensation | $1.5 million — Our client was severely injured on a maintenance work project as a tree cutter when his employer cut a branch which fell on his head, piercing his construction helmet and fracturing his skull. Gene Riddle filed suit with another attorney at Riddle and Brantley and was awarded a judgment of $1,500,000. The Defendant’s insurance company denied insurance coverage for this accident and the matter is still being litigated. We have secured a judgment even though no funds have yet been collected.

Looking for a Charlotte personal injury lawyer?
If you’ve been seriously injured in a car wreck or other accident caused by another party, you may be entitled compensation and it is our job to help you get justice.
The laws in North Carolina can be complicated. There are specific rules of evidence that limit the manner in which your bills are presented in evidence to the jury. There is also the rule of contributory negligence which can completely bar recovery if the finder of fact determines that you contributed even one percent to the accident. A personal injury attorney with experience in Charlotte can help you navigate these laws.
Given this complexity, request a free consultation today. A personal injury lawyer at Riddle and Brantley can walk you step-by-step through the legal maze and help you recover the compensation that the law says is fair.
