Goldsboro Personal Injury Lawyer
Need a Personal Injury Lawyer in Goldsboro?
If you were injured because of someone’s negligence or intentional actions, then you have the right to seek compensation from those responsible — and a Goldsboro personal injury attorney can help. Depending on the circumstances that caused your injuries, you may be able to file an insurance claim, workers compensation claim or personal injury lawsuit. Motor vehicle accidents, dog bites, slip and fall accidents, bad drugs, and defective products and medical devices are all common reasons for injury claims. However, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit for any kind of accident. The compensation can help you cover the cost of your medical bills, lost wages, permanent injury and other related expenses.

Once we accept your case, we act aggressively on your behalf until your claim is resolved.
What Kinds of Claims Does a Personal Injury Attorney Represent?
At Riddle & Brantley, our personal injury lawyers have wide-ranging experience in a variety of personal injury practice areas in Goldsboro and throughout North Carolina. In addition to truck and motor vehicle accidents, we handle claims involving:
- Child Injuries. A child injury case may be more complex than a typical personal injury claim. The long-term effects of an injury may affect the child’s entire future and impose a heavy financial burden on the entire family.
- Dangerous Drugs. Many over-the-counter and prescribed medications pose serious health risks, and manufacturers may be liable if you’ve suffered injury as a result.
- Defective Products. Defects in consumer products, including auto parts, children’s toys and household chemicals, can cause serious injuries to users.
- Energy Drink Injuries. The high amounts of caffeine and other substances in energy drinks can cause cardiac arrest and seizures as well as other dangerous conditions.
- Firework Accidents. A defective firework or negligent handling can cause dangerous explosions. Severe lacerations, amputations and wrongful death may result.
- Long-Term Personal Injuries. Certain injuries may cause long-term conditions that may take weeks or months to heal, if they heal at all. For example, spinal cord and traumatic brain injuries are often permanent. Even broken bones can have long-term consequences. Additionally, scarring and disfiguring injuries may have long-term psychological effects in addition to physical results.
- Mesothelioma. Asbestos exposure can case mesothelioma lung cancer, which usually takes decades to develop. Nevertheless, you can often collect compensation for this condition and other toxic exposure illnesses.
- Premises Liability Claims. Property owners have a duty to take reasonable steps to protect guests and visitors from dog bites, slip and fall accidents and other dangerous conditions. Otherwise, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit against the owner.
- Sexual Assault. According to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, one in five women and one in 71 men will be sexually assaulted at some point in their life. Sexual assault can result in severe, long-term physical, mental, and emotional injury.
