New Bern combines a pleasant, small-town atmosphere with plenty to do and see. But if you’re suddenly injured due to a careless or reckless act, you might not be able to enjoy your favorite activities. You could be facing a long, painful recovery as you miss work and watch your medical bills pile up. Fortunately, the law entitles you to compensation for injuries caused by someone else’s negligence, and the Carolina Law Group is ready to help you secure a fair financial recovery. Drawing on decades of experience, our personal injury attorneys aggressively pursue the full compensation you deserve. We thoroughly investigate the circumstances of your accident to identify the liable parties, then work tirelessly to hold them fully accountable.
In our personal injury practice, we handle a wide range of cases, including claims arising from:
It’s important to know that North Carolina law follows the doctrine of pure contributory negligence. This means that if you are even one percent at fault for an accident, you cannot demand any compensation. As your attorneys, we not only advance your legal argument but vigorously counter allegations of contributory negligence.
The point of personal injury law is to recover full compensation for harm traceable to the defendant’s negligence. You can recover economic and noneconomic damages. Your economic damages could include your present and future medical bills, as well as your present and future lost earnings due to the injury. Your noneconomic damages might address physical pain and mental suffering, loss of quality of life and loss of enjoyment of life.
Some damage amounts, such as your current bills, are easily quantified. But the questions of whether your injury will require future medical care or how long your suffering will continue are often impossible to answer precisely, so it’s harder to put a dollar amount on those demands. For this reason, it’s vital to choose an experienced attorney who has had success with injury cases like yours. Our firm has ample experience to handle even the most serious, catastrophic injury cases, including those involving conditions such as:
These are the types of injuries that change a person’s life forever. Your damage award or settlement should reflect that reality. Our firm is also prepared to help grieving families with claims for a loved one’s wrongful death.
