Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Claims
Accidents happen all the time. However, if the accident or injury was caused by someone's negligence, that person or business should be held responsible for their actions. In a personal injury accident, the injury victim can get damages for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. If the accident resulted in the death of a loved one, the family may be eligible for compensation for their loss.
Jobs in the maritime industry can be dangerous and every year, thousands are injured on ships, at sea, or at harbors and docks. State and federal laws provide that individuals injured in maritime accidents can be eligible for wage replacement, medical expenses, and other damages after an accident.
Traffic Tickets and Moving Violations
The court is generally not interested in hearing about why you did not deserve a ticket. Instead of trying to fight a traffic ticket on your own, a traffic ticket lawyer can appear on your behalf, handle the ticket for you, and help you avoid the time and expense involved in having to take time off of work to go to traffic court.
North Carolina workers' compensation laws are supposed to provide medical treatment and compensation for workers who are injured on the job. However, the insurance company or employer may deny a workers' comp claim or stop benefits, leaving the injured worker unable to earn a living. A workers' comp lawyer can fight to get a claim approved or benefits reinstated.
