How Can an Injury Lawyer Help?
Personal injury cases can be complicated, time-consuming, and stressful. Whether you’re filing an insurance or workers compensation claim, or filing a lawsuit, having someone on your side who knows the ins and outs of the legal system can make a big difference. A recent study showed that those who hire an attorney recover over 3 times more compensation on average than those who represent themselves.
Whether it’s organizing accident investigations or handling court filings, helping arrange medical care, or negotiating with the insurance company, an attorney at Riddle & Brantley can handle all aspects of your case.
Every case is different, but one thing is true of every accident:
There is a lot to be done if you’re planning to file a claim or lawsuit seeking compensation for your injuries… and even more to be done if you want to win your case.
A Riddle & Brantley attorney can handle all aspects of your case, including:
- Investigating the accident site
- Obtaining the official accident report
- Securing surveillance and/or dash cam footage
- Hiring expert witnesses including accident reconstructionists
- Referring you to appropriate medical care
- Finding and interviewing witnesses
- Tracking down the at-fault party in hit and run cases
- Making a statement to the insurance company
- Helping you manage expensive medical bills
- Communicating with law enforcement
- Calculating long-term financial damages
- Negotiating with the insurance company
- Negotiating with defense counsel
- Representing you in mediation or arbitration proceedings
- Handling litigation, including court filings, hearings, and trial
- Setting up trusts and/or guardianships to ensure long-term care
- and more…
Filing a claim or personal injury lawsuit can be overwhelming. An attorney can handle all of these tasks and help you navigate the process with minimal stress.
“How Long Do I Have to File an Injury Claim or Lawsuit?”
Personal injury claims in North Carolina are governed by the state’s Statute of Limitations, which is essentially the deadline by which an injury claim or lawsuit must be filed. There are some exceptions, but in general, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in North Carolina is:
- 3 years from the date of injury in personal injury claims
- 2 years from the date of death in wrongful death claims
If you’ve been injured in Greenville, don’t lose your right to justice and compensation by missing an important deadline. Our attorneys can help you manage every aspect of your case and make sure your claim is filed within the statute of limitations. In work injury cases, we can also ensure that the proper forms are filed with the NC Industrial Commission. In disability cases, we can make sure that you meet filing deadlines ordered by the Social Security Administration. Don’t stress about deadlines in your personal injury claim — call (252) 397-8620 for a free consultation with a Greenville NC accident lawyer and let’s see how we can help.
“How Much Will a Personal Injury Lawyer Cost?”
Hiring an attorney doesn’t have to be expensive. In fact, many injury lawyers — including Riddle & Brantley — work on a contingency basis. That means there is no upfront cost, and there are no attorney fees unless you win financial compensation. This is true regardless what type of accident or injury case we help with — car accidents, truck accident, workplace injuries, wrongful death cases, etc.
For a FREE consultation, please call our lawyers at (252) 397-8620, or complete the convenient form below. There is no obligation, and there are never any attorney fees unless we win your case and get you financial compensation.
Settlements and Judgments
In more than 35 years of service to injured North Carolinians, our experienced attorneys have secured hundreds of millions of dollars in compensation for our valued clients (see disclaimer below). Recent wins include:
- $9,450,000 | Truck Accident & Wrongful Death — Our attorneys fought for justice in a heartbreaking case where a family of four was killed in a terrible tractor-trailer accident. We investigated the crash, proving liability with accident reconstruction and even the subpoena of Google Maps traffic data. We filed multiple lawsuits against the at-fault driver and a pavement marking company we determined to be liable, as well, ultimately securing $9.45 million in total compensation in separate settlements.
- $2,750,000 | Car Accident — Riddle & Brantley represented the victim in a terrible head-on car accident that resulted in serious injuries. We recovered $2.75 million in arbitration, which was immediately followed by a separate $1 million declaratory judgment.
- $2,750,000 | Workplace Accident — We represented a construction worker who was hit by a tractor-trailer at the worksite, suffering serious injuries including the loss of his right leg below the knee. Attorneys Gene Riddle and Adam Smith filed separate personal injury and workers’ compensation claims, negotiating $2.75 million in total compensation after a hard-fought legal battle, that included filing a lawsuit against the trucking company.
- $1,625,000 | Pedestrian Accident — We were hired by an outside law firm after their client’s pedestrian accident claim was originally denied. We investigated the accident and determined that the driver involved had been negligent and entered mediation with the insurance company, ultimately securing $1.625 million in compensation for our valued client.
- $1,500,000 | Personal Injury — Our injury attorneys represented a worker who suffered debilitating head injuries when a tree limb being cut by his employer fell on his head. The employer did not have workers’ compensation insurance so we filed a lawsuit, eventually securing a judgment in favor of the plaintiff awarding $1.5 million.
