If you have been injured as a result of the carelessness or negligence of another person or company, you may have a personal injury claim. A wrongful death may entitle family members to compensation or death benefits. At Morrow Porter Vermitsky & Taylor, PLLC, our experienced lawyers are available to assess your case and help you pursue the full compensation you are entitled to.
Oftentimes, an insurance company will contact injured persons shortly after an accident in an attempt to resolve the claim quickly and minimize its pay out. Remember that insurance adjusters are generally well-trained in negotiation tactics. You should consult with an attorney before dealing with an insurance adjuster so that you will be fully aware of your rights. We will gladly talk with you about your claim so that you can decide whether you need to retain a personal injury attorney to represent you.
A wrongful death action in North Carolina allows the estate of the decedent to seek recovery for the benefit of the heirs of the decedent. The statute of limitations is short, so it is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible. We have achieved significant settlements, some well in excess of a million dollars. Our success speaks to our competence and ability to achieve results.
We understand how damages are calculated and will seek to maximize compensation for pain and suffering, permanent disability, disfigurement, loss of consortium (inability to work, provide services or intimacy), future medical expenses, brain injuries, closed head injuries, loss of income, property damage and death.
