Experienced & Dedicated Legal Counsel

Our Areas of Practice:

  • Bicycle accidents: Due to their lack of outer protection, bicyclists who are injured in accidents, especially accidents involving motor vehicles, are more prone to serious injuries that can include spinal cord and neck injuries and head and brain trauma. Bicyclists have many of the same rights to use the road as cars, which many drivers don’t acknowledge.
  • Car accidents: One of the leading causes of injuries in the United States, car accidents are mainly caused by human errors like distracted driving, reckless driving, drunk driving, and fatigued driving. Common types of car accidents include rear-end accidents, which can occur as a result of tailgating or failure to brake quickly, and head-on collisions, which are extremely dangerous and cause serious injuries and fatalities.
  • Drunk driving accidents: Those who drive while drunk put themselves and everyone around them on the road at risk, from other drivers to nearby bicyclists and pedestrians. Intoxication blurs vision, slows reaction times, and impairs judgment, all of which can contribute to reckless driving that causes accidents, injuries, and deaths.
  • Motorcycle accidents: Motorcyclists are also more susceptible to catastrophic injuries after motor vehicle accidents. Because they share the road with cars and are smaller, they are often more difficult to notice by drivers who aren’t alert. Cars often injured motorcyclists when they fail to see them in their blind spots before merging or changing lanes.
  • Pedestrian accidents: Pedestrians can be seriously harmed by drivers who fail to yield to them when they’re crossing the street or walking alongside the road, but cars can also strike nearby pedestrians in driveways and in parking lots if they’re not careful and actively checking their mirrors and blind spots.
  • Truck accidents: Truck accidents cause some of the most devastating injuries as a result of their size, weight, and force. Overloaded cargo can contribute to an accident, as well as other unique commercial factors such as inspection failures, manufacturing issues, or driver fatigue, as commercial truckers often have to drive long distances through the night.

We Take on the Tough Cases

Our attorneys are not afraid to take on the toughest and most complex cases. With more than five decades of combined experience and a long track record of success to back us up, we know how to investigate accidents fully to determine liability. No case is too complicated or big for us to take, and we’re not daunted by the possibility of going up against large companies.

Though victims may assume their insurance companies will give them the compensation they deserve, the reality is that insurance companies are for-profit businesses that will do what they can to avoid compensating those who are injured. Our team has faced countless insurance companies and works tirelessly and passionately to ensure our clients aren’t taken advantage of.

How Our Team Can Help

With assertiveness and resolve, we achieve justice for families devastated by serious injuries. You shouldn’t have to go into debt or declare bankruptcy in order to pay out-of-pocket to treat your injuries, especially when another party is responsible for causing them. You’ve already suffered so much – we can help you on the path to healing by recovering damages.

Our attorneys obtain full compensation for:

  • Past and future medical bills, including hospital stays, ambulance rides, surgeries, medications, and more
  • Lost income and earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Emotional distress
  • Wrongful death, which can include funeral and burial expenses, loss of companionship, and more

Our attorneys consult top experts such as trauma doctors, chiropractors, pharmacists, forensics engineers, mechanics, and accident reconstruction analysts to maximize recovery for your injuries. At trial, these experts are available to deliver clear, compelling testimony to help jurors and judges understand the extent and cause of your injuries.

Learn more about your personal injury claim by contacting our Morehead, NC attorneys at (252) 726-2000. We can assess your situation and determine whether you’re eligible to seek financial compensation.
