Helping You Recover from Your Accidental Injury
As a victim of a personal injury accident, you may be entitled to seek compensation for the medical expenses that you have had to endure because someone else was negligent. “Duty of Care” is a legal term that you often hear in reference to personal injury claims. It refers to the obligation we all have to make sure our actions do not harm others. If someone knows there is a danger and doesn’t take action to prevent an accident, he or she has abandoned his or her duty of care.
For example: If the host of a party serves alcohol to an intoxicated guest who then causes a car wreck, the host may be held responsible. This social host law is one that our firm helped to establish in North Carolina. A truck driver who knowingly carries a load that is too heavy can cause an accident. If he knew the weight exceeded the legal limit, he is said to have abandoned his duty of care.

Loss of Use of a Body Part
Compensation depends on how greatly the loss of a limb, eye or other body part affects your enjoyment of life or your earning capacity.
Loss of Consortium
A personal injury accident attorney can file a claim on behalf of your spouse for the loss of intimacy and companionship caused by the injuries suffered in the accident.
Additional Forms of Personal Injury Compensation
Under certain circumstances, our team can pursue additional forms of compensation for clients who have suffered a personal injury accident. Punitive damages can be pursued for gross negligence and caregivers misconduct. Punitive damages are used to punish liable parties and to make them reconsider making the same mistakes twice. Wrongful death damages can be sought if the negligence or misconduct resulted in the death of a child, spouse or parent.
