Justice for Hickory and North Carolina
With a population of just over 40,000 people, Hickory is the largest city in the Hickory-Lenoir-Morganton metropolitan statistical area. Incorporated in 1870, Hickory was once best known for its textile and furniture industries but more recently has developed a reputation for fiberoptic cable manufacturing and technology. Today Hickory is home to some of Apple and Google’s largest data centers.
Lenoir-Rhyne University is also located in Hickory. Founded in 1891, Lenoir-Rhyne is a nationally recognized liberal arts institution serving more than 3,000 students.
Hickory is also located just off I-40, one of North Carolina’s busiest interstates. All that traffic and construction associated with the region’s growing economy mean that injuries are unfortunately common. 13 people were involved in fatal car, truck, and motorcycle accidents in Hickory in 2017 alone.

Here are just a few of the recent settlements and judgments we’ve won for our clients. For more information, please visit our Riddle & Brantley case results page.
- Wrongful Death | $3,000,000 — Attorney Donald Dunn represented the family of an assisted living resident who died after contracting Hepatitis B as a result of staff mishandling medical equipment. The case was litigated in Wayne County Superior Court resulting in a judgment of $3,000,000 on behalf of the victim’s family.
- Auto Accident | $2,250,000 — Managing partner Gene Riddle represented the family of a woman tragically killed in a head-on accident involving a negligent truck driver. Riddle knew the family personally and quickly organized a complete crash scene investigation, including accident scene reconstruction. After informing the insurance company of his intent to file suit, the case entered mediation, where Riddle won a $2,250,000 settlement for the victim’s family.
- Motorcycle Accident | $1,000,000 — When a passenger on a motorcycle suffered traumatic brain injury, memory loss, and multiple fractures after the driver lost control on an S-curve, attorney Gene Riddle took the case. Prior to suit being filed, Riddle negotiated a $1,000,000 settlement with the insurance company — the limits of the policy in question.
