Goldsboro Injury Lawyers Ready to Fight for You
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.
Mr. Riddle and Mr. Brantley help clients in cases involving personal injury, workers’ compensation, and Social Security Disability.
Attorney Riddle is a member of such prestigious organizations as Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, The National Trial Lawyers Top 100, The National Association of Distinguished Counsel, and Super Lawyers. He also maintains the highest rating from Martindale-Hubbell, AV Preeminent.
Mr. Brantley is also a member of Million Dollar Advocates Forum and is recognized by the North Carolina State Bar as a Board-Certified Specialist in Workers’ Compensation.
The Goldsboro legal team also includes associates Donny Dunn and Adam Smith. Mr. Dunn is the firm’s senior litigator and has been involved in many trials, and handled thousands of injury cases. He represents victims in motorcycle wrecks, truck accidents, auto accidents and other cases involving personal injury, wrongful death, and class actions. His past settlements and judgments earned Riddle & Brantley invitations into a couple categories of the Litigator’s Award.

Goldsboro Legal 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 Wayne County Courthouse is located at 224 E.

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.
Attorneys Chris Brantley and Adam Smith are NC Board-Certified Specialists in Workers’ Compensation. This means they have been recognized by the North Carolina State Bar for their experience and competence handling these specific types of cases.
