Experienced North Carolina Personal Injury Lawyers on Your Side
When you or a loved one becomes injured and suffers a debilitating personal injury due to the negligence of others, the experience can be devastating. Medical bills, lost wages, chronic pain, and emotional trauma can all stem from an accident that wasn’t your fault, but you don’t have to shoulder the duress alone. Led by personal injury attorney Harry H. Albritton, Jr., the legal team at Irons & Irons P.A., offers personalized attention to your case along with the knowledge and experience necessary to fight on your behalf when you’ve suffered serious injury or lost a loved one.
Understanding Personal Injury Cases
A personal injury case can be brought forth when an individual suffers serious harm due to an accident that was caused by someone else, such as hitting someone with their car because they were texting. They can also be based on an injury that that occurred due to someone else’s negligence, such as slipping on a wet floor at a shop due to a leaking pipe.
Once an attorney takes a case, there are two outcomes. Most often, the case will be settled out of court, in which the person at fault, or their insurance company, will pay a negotiated sum to the injured party and both parties will sign a written agreement considering the matter solved. On the other hand, if a settlement can’t be reached, the injured party and their attorney files a civil complaint against the person at fault alleging their negligence or careless action led to the accident or injury.
Representing Clients in All Types of Personal Injury Cases
When you need a personal injury lawyer, we represent clients with claims coming from a variety of factors. Our services include:
Car collisions are all too common and can lead to serious injury and long-term pain and suffering. If the other driver was at fault, due to distraction, reckless driving, or poor car maintenance, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
Commercial truck accidents are a bit different than typical car accidents. While they may still be caused by driver negligence or poor maintenance, the trucking company may be at fault as well as the driver. Several factors affect these claims and having a truck accident attorney fighting on your behalf can help you achieve a more favorable outcome.
Motorcycle injuries can be severe and are more likely to lead to long-term disability or even death than other vehicle accidents. Yet, too often, it’s the fault of the other driver who was driving carelessly. We will fight to get you the compensation you deserve if you were injured in a motorcycle accident.
More people are relying on Uber or Lyft to get to their destinations safely, but if an accident occurs, who pays the bill? Our injury lawyers will work to find who was at fault and hold them and the rideshare companies accountable for your injury.
When unsafe conditions lead to injury, the property owner can and should be held liable. From wet floors at a business to dangerous sidewalks around private property, if you’ve been hurt from slipping, tripping, or another type of injury due to unsafe property, you may be entitled to a settlement.
When an injury caused by someone else’s negligence leads to the loss of a loved one, the case is a wrongful death claim rather than personal injury. We represent the estate and family members of the deceased and fight for justice.
Dental malpractice is more common than most people realize, and an injury caused by poor dental care can lead to serious long-term problems. If you have experienced pain and suffering, including tooth loss, speech and eating challenges, and chronic pain from improper dental care, you may have a claim.
When a loved one can no longer care for themselves safely in their home, we rely on nursing homes to provide the care they need. Unfortunately, abuse and neglect do happen, and we will work to hold the long-term care facility accountable to secure the damages your loved one deserves and to prevent further abuse from occurring for another family.
A traumatic brain injury can lead to long-term disability, leaving you or a loved on suffering chronic pain and unable to work while dealing with medical bills and ongoing costs. If a traumatic brain injury occurred through no fault of your own, learn how we can represent you in your case to help you get the damages you deserve.
Types of Case Settlements
Whether a case is settled out of court or the settlement is determined through litigation in favor of the plaintiff, the amount received is based on several factors that can be divided into two main categories:
- Special Damages – These include specific costs related to the accident, including lost wages, medical bills, and estimates of future costs of the injury.
- Non-economic Damages – These include more “abstract” costs, such as chronic pain, permanent injury or disability, disfigurement, or emotional trauma.
Punitive damages are also a non-economic cost, but they’re factored differently. While they are awarded to the victim of the injury, they are specifically awarded as a punishment to the defendant, such as in the case of a drunk driving accident or the gross negligence of a company who sold a faulty product.
