When you are seriously injured in a car accident, at work, in a public place, or even in your own home, your first thought may be, “How did this happen?” Sometimes accidents just happen, but in many cases, injuries result from carelessness.

Helping injured people get compensation for their losses is the job of a personal injury attorney.

Automobile Accidents

Accidents are caused by distracted or impaired drivers, speeding, and failure to obey traffic signals, faulty equipment, and other dangerous or reckless behaviors. Fortunately, North Carolina law requires all drivers to carry liability insurance. Even if you are injured by an uninsured driver, or if their insurance coverage is not adequate to cover your losses, your uninsured motorist coverage will be available.

Medical Malpractice

When a medical care professional or facility makes a mistake, the results can be devastating. You may have to undergo additional medical treatment, resulting in more expenses. You may be permanently injured or disabled. There are strict time limits and other rules for medical malpractice lawsuits in North Carolina, so it is important to consult an experienced attorney if you believe you have been the victim of medical malpractice.

Workplace Accidents

Most on the job injuries are covered by worker’s compensation insurance. Worker’s compensation covers your medical expenses and lost wages until you are able to return to work. Benefits are also available for permanent injury or disability, and death benefits may be paid to the family of a worker who is killed on the job.

Defective Products

When a design or manufacturing defect causes a product to pose a danger to its users, the manufacturer may be liable for damages, even if the injured person is not the actual purchaser. In the case of defective automobiles, for example, manufacturers are liable for injuries to the purchaser, and to anyone involved in an accident caused by the defective vehicle.

Defective Medical Devices

The damage from a defective medical device may not be discovered until long after the device has been in use. Many times, significant damage is done before the user is aware, causing additional procedures to repair or remove the device, and sometimes causing irreparable harm.

Slips and Falls

Property owners owe a duty of care to their customers and guests. The property owner’s duty is to keep the property in a safe condition, and to warn people of any known hazards.

Dog Bites

Many thousands of pets are owned by North Carolina residents. When a pet has a history of aggressive behavior, or when the owner has violated local animal control laws, the owner may be responsible for injuries caused by the pet, including injuries sustained when running away from an aggressive dog.
