Charlotte Injury Lawyers Ready to Fight for You
Charlotte is the largest city in the state of North Carolina with a population of 859,000 in the city and almost 2.5 million in its metro area. It boasts the 4th fastest job growth in America and 100 new residents move to the Charlotte area every day.
We are proud to be home to the Carolina Panthers and the NASCAR Hall of Fame.
800,000 people commute to work in the Charlotte metro area every day and 61% of them have at least 2 cars in the garage. I-85, I-77 and I-485 crisscross the Charlotte area. Construction is booming all around. With all this activity, it is no wonder that the roads are littered with serious accidents every day and that workers are hurt on the job every day of the week. In 2017, Charlotte ranked 3rd among North Carolina cities with the most motor vehicle accidents.
When you’re injured through no fault of your own, you may be entitled to compensation. The Charlotte personal injury attorneys at Riddle & Brantley have more than 225 years of collective experience in North Carolina fighting for victims of accidents resulting from the negligence of others. We’ve been able to recover millions of dollars for our clients, including compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and even pain and emotional suffering (see disclaimer below).
Many of our attorneys and staff have close personal ties to the Charlotte area. Founding partner and attorney Gene Riddle’s father grew up in the area and his grandparents worked in the textile mill in nearby Kannapolis.
Our personal injury lawyers handle all types of personal injury lawsuits in the Charlotte, NC area and have the resources necessary to take cases to trial to ensure our clients receive the compensation they truly deserve. We frequently handle cases in district and superior courts in the Charlotte area, including at the Mecklenburg County Courthouse (pictured below).
Remember, because North Carolina has a Statute of Limitations requiring lawsuits to be filed in a limited timeframe, it’s important to act quickly. In most personal injury cases, this time period is usually three years from the date of the accident, unless the victim is a minor or has a disability. In cases involving death, the time period is usually two years from the date of death. Contact one of our personal injury attorneys for immediate assistance.

Do I Have a Case?
When our firm takes your case, our attorneys must establish that your injuries were the result of another person or organization’s negligence. Our investigators are diligent in collecting the evidence necessary to support your claim.
We even have retired law enforcement officers on staff to lead investigations into accidents. We also frequently bring on outside experts to provide testimony to support our clients’ claims. In one recent truck accident and wrongful death case, we even subpoenaed traffic data from Google Maps to prove liability. We were able to secure $9.45 million in total compensation from the insurance companies (see disclaimer below).
The theory of negligence lies behind most personal injury cases, which simply means there was a failure to exercise reasonable care to protect another from harm. In helping you recover the proper compensation, your Riddle & Brantley Charlotte personal injury lawyer will dedicate him or herself to demonstrating these circumstances.
If you believe another person’s negligence caused or contributed to your injury, contact us for a free case review.
Charlotte Courthouse Information
Personal injury cases are filed and tried at the District Court or Superior Court of North Carolina’s court system. Many cases are settled without the need for a trial, but we are prepared to go to court if a settlement cannot be reached. The Mecklenburg County Courthouse is located at 832 East Fourth St., Charlotte, NC 28202.
Charlotte Workers’ Compensation Information
Workers’ compensation hearings are often necessary to get benefits for an injured worker. Workers’ comp claims are handled by the North Carolina Industrial Commission. That agency resolves
disputes related to an injury on the job, an illness acquired through work (occupational disease), or deaths at work.
Deputy Commissioner Hearings are held in various locations in eastern North Carolina, including Greenville, Williamston, Elizabeth City, Tarboro, Wilson, Benson, New Bern, Fayetteville, Burgaw, and Bolivia. The North Carolina Industrial Commission holds Full Commission Hearings in Raleigh at its offices at 430 N. Salisbury Street, Raleigh, NC 27603.
