Personal Injury Attorneys in Monroe, NC
Sustaining an injury in a motor vehicle collision, dog attack, or some other accident can be a devastating and life-changing event for you and your family. You may require expensive medical procedures, physical therapy, and ongoing medical costs. Bad accidents can also leave victims with emotional distress, limited mobility, and alter their ability to enjoy life. On top of all this, insurance companies may try to pressure you to settle before making a full recovery and prior to speaking to an attorney. This is how they prevent paying larger claims related to significant or lasting injuries.

The Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Car accidents are a leading cause of personal injury in North Carolina. According to a report by NCDOT, there were 247,214 traffic crashes reported within the state in 2020 alone, resulting in over 105,382 injuries and 1,658 deaths. If you were injured or lost a loved one because of someone speeding, running a red light, failing to yield, texting and driving, or operating a vehicle while impaired, you are entitled to monetary compensation.
Dog bites can result in severe injuries that can require surgery and, in some instances, long-term care. Furthermore, because of the violent nature of these injuries, pain, suffering, and emotional distress are common. Fortunately, North Carolina allows dog-bite victims to hold pet owners liable when their animals cause injuries, regardless of whether the accidents happened on public or private property. Our office helps dog-bite victims evaluate their case options and pursue settlements for any injuries they sustained.
Premises Liability Claims
Premises liability claims hold property owners responsible for accidents that occurred within their residence or business. Property owners have a legal responsibility to maintain an environment that is safe for visitors, which means keeping it free of hazards like slippery or uneven walkways, broken elevators, exposed lead, exposed construction sites, and so forth. If you were hurt on someone else’s property, contact our office for a case evaluation.
In the very worst cases, a serious accident caused by someone else can result in fatal injuries to a family member. This can be one of the most painful life experiences. It can leave you having to pay funerary expenses and outstanding medical bills, all while grieving the loss of someone you love. Although nothing can fix the pain of your loss, North Carolina at least provides a pathway for you to recover monetary damages and make up for lost wages. We help surviving family members or representatives file claims on behalf of their loved ones.
