Do you have a personal injury case?
Many factors determine whether you have a personal injury case. If you’ve been injured in High Point or elsewhere in the Piedmont Triad, you’ll want to consult with a lawyer experienced with North Carolina injury law.
Your personal injury attorney will be able to evaluate your case and advise you on your legal options.
Keep in mind that in most cases (though not all), the North Carolina Statute of Limitations gives you 3 years to file a personal injury claim or lawsuit. If death results, then the time period is only 2 years. In NC, the rule of Contributory Negligence also means that you must demonstrate that you did not contribute to the cause of the accident.
Your personal injury lawyer will be able to walk you through these important details and advise you on your best legal options.
Have you been injured due to someone else’s negligence?
Before you do anything else, call 911 and seek medical attention.
Not only is it important to care for your health and safety, but your medical records typically represent an important part of any potential personal injury claim or lawsuit. Therefore, your treatment is a very important part of your claim.
Once you have attended to your safety and well-being, consider contacting an experienced a Riddle & Brantley personal injury lawyer with experience in High Point.
Keep in mind that there is no such thing as the “best personal injury lawyer.” Every case is different. However, you should look for an attorney with experience representing clients involved in similar accidents. You’ll also likely want an attorney familiar with High Point and the surrounding area.
You should also consider a potential attorney’s case results.
For example, here are just a few settlements and judgments we’ve obtained for clients in North Carolina:
- Wrongful Death | $3 million —Riddle & Brantley attorney Donald Dunn won a $3 million judgment for the family of a victim who died after contracting Hepatitis B due to an assisted living facility’s mishandling of medical equipment.
- Personal Injury | $1.5 million — Managing partner and attorney Gene Riddle won a $1.5 million judgment for a client injured when an employer cut a tree limb that accidentally dropped on his head. The employer did not have workers compensation coverage, so a lawsuit was filed and won. We are still litigating the insurance coverage on this claim to recover the judgment awarded.
- Auto Accident | $800,000 — Attorney Gene Riddle filed suit after our client suffered serious injuries in an auto accident caused by the Defendant driver making an illegal turn. The suit was contested by the Defendant’s counsel and settled prior to trial for $800,000.
- Worker’s Compensation | $786,000 — Attorney Gene Riddle represented a client who was shot and suffered a disabling injury while working in law enforcement. Following extensive negotiations, the case settled for $786,000.
