Greensboro Personal Injury Attorneys Pursue Payment for Victims
North Carolina firm fights to hold negligent parties accountable
With approximately 300,000 residents, Greensboro is the third most populous city in North Carolina and the focal point of the Piedmont Triad region that also includes High Point and Winston-Salem. The area has a great deal to offer families, businesses and students, but with so much activity, accidents do occur and sometimes lead to serious injuries. Sigmon Klein, PLLC represents personal injury and wrongful death clients throughout the area and is a strong advocate for plaintiffs who seek appropriate compensation for the harm they’ve suffered. In cases stemming from car crashes, falls, defective products and other examples of negligence, we press to secure justice for victims.
Do I need a lawyer?
We handle a wide array of personal injury and wrongful death claims, including matters where individuals were hurt due to:
- Vehicle accidents — As accomplished auto accident lawyers, we understand how to make the strongest possible argument for liability even in complex cases involving multiple vehicles and vastly different accounts.
- Slip and fall incidents — If you’ve been hurt in a fall caused by unsafe conditions on someone else’s property, we’ll advise you of the likelihood of a successful premises liability claim.
- Defective products — When a product injures someone because of a design, manufacturing or labeling defect, our firm works to hold the negligent party accountable.
- Dog bites — Even if a pet owner was not actually aware that their animal was dangerous, an injured victim may still have valuable rights. Contact us for a free consultation about your dog bite case.
In every case we take on, our firm works diligently to prove defendants’ fault by locating key witnesses, collecting evidence and retaining the necessary experts. You can count on us to stand up for your rights against insurance companies and make every legal effort to maximize the amount you receive in a judgment or settlement.
How much does it cost?
Don’t let financial concerns pressure you into accepting an inadequate settlement. We handle personal injury cases on a contingency basis, so clients pay us a percentage of any financial recovery they collect through a verdict or settlement. We know how tough covering household expenses can be during the healing process, so our lawyers press to secure a fair resolution as quickly as possible to relieve the burden on the people we represent.
What damages can a personal injury victim collect?
Typically, plaintiffs in North Carolina personal injury cases can collect two different types of damages: economic and noneconomic. Economic damages are available for tangible losses resulting from the defendant’s negligence and can include payment for medical bills, lost income and rehabilitation expenses. Noneconomic damages address other types of harm, such as the pain and suffering you endured, the loss of enjoyment in your life and any lasting disfigurement arising from the incident.
How long do you have to sue?
In most North Carolina personal injury cases, you have three years from the date of the injury to file a lawsuit seeking damages from the responsible party. This period can be extended if the victim is a minor or is not capable of exercising their legal rights due to physical or mental incapacity. When a child is injured, his or her parents can initiate a claim on the youth’s behalf. Even if you have a long time before the statute of limitations expires, it’s important to act quickly so that critical evidence and witnesses can be located.
