The outcome of a particular case cannot be predicated upon past results. The summaries should not be construed to create any sort of expectations -- every case is different and must be evaluated separately, upon a variety of factors unique to each case.

  • Judgment - $900,000.00 – Wrongful Death

    We recovered $900,000.00 for the family of a doctor who was attacked and killed by a pack of dogs in 2014.  The victim was visiting family in North Carolina to attend the baptism of his niece.  He went for a walk and never returned.  Rockingham County Sheriff’s Deputies discovered the victim across the street from the property of owners of numerous dogs who had been allowed to run loose throughout the neighborhood many times.  We filed suit against the owners of the dogs and successfully obtained a judgment in Rockingham County Superior Court.


  • Settlement - $625,000.00 – Wrongful Death

    We obtained a settlement in a civil wrongful death action for the family of a laborer who was killed when his vehicle was struck by a tractor trailer on I-77 in Surry County, North Carolina.  The decedent was driving home from work one evening when, evidence showed, a tractor trailer rig failed to stop and collided with his car, ejecting him onto the roadway.  We filed suit against the driver and trucking company.  We discovered evidence that the driver had violated several federal trucking regulations about the hours he was driving without sufficient rest breaks.


  • Judgment - $600,000.00. – Construction Injury

    We obtained a judgment for a man seriously injured by a water line that had not been properly depressurized and exploded.  We filed suit against the utilities contractor who failed to follow proper procedures for tying off the water line in order to allow additional utility work to commence.  When the contractor did not pay, we obtained a judgment and enforced payment.


  • Settlement - $300,000 – Auto Accident

    We obtained a settlement of $300,000 (maximum insurance coverage) in a civil action for a man who was injured when his vehicle was struck head-on by an oncoming vehicle in Randolph County, NC.  Our client was returning home from work.  He sustained multiple serious injuries.  Unfortunately, the at-fault party carried insufficient liability insurance to fully cover our client’s injuries.


  • Settlement - $300,000 – Auto Accident

    We obtained a settlement of $300,000 (maximum insurance coverage) in a civil action for a family struck by a drunk driver who failed to stop at a stop sign and collided into our clients’ vehicle.  The T-Bone style collision caused serious injuries to our client.  Our client had an infant in the rear of the car and, because the infant was riding in an approved child safety seat, the infant survived with nothing more than a few minor scrapes.  It reminds us that child safety seats are so important for the safety of our kids, because you may be a careful driver but you never know when someone in another vehicle may be intoxicated or driving recklessly, endangering everyone else on the road.


  • Settlement - $300,000 – Auto Accident

    We obtained a settlement of $300,000 (maximum insurance coverage) in a civil action for a family hit broad-side by an oncoming vehicle that crossed over the center line.  The collision caused our clients’ vehicle to overturn several times.  The at-fault driver denied that he crossed the center line and accused our clients of crossing into his lane.  We hired an accident reconstruction expert to investigate the physical evidence in the roadway and he was able to determine that the point-of-impact occurred in our clients’ lane of travel, thus proving that the other driver crossed over the center line.


  • Settlement - $350,000 – Workers’ Compensation

    We successfully negotiated a settlement of workers’ compensation benefits for a man who was suffered a serious back injury while doing construction work resulting in several disc herniations that required a fusion surgery.   We hired a medical expert to calculate future medical needs in order to prove that our client will have significant medical costs in the future.


  • Settlement - $245,000 – Workers’ Compensation

    We successfully negotiated a settlement of workers’ compensation benefits for a man who was permanently injured when a heavy pipe fell onto his upper body in a boiler room at his job.  We represented him to ensure that he received over $1 million in medical treatment benefits and disability benefits prior to the settlement.


  • Settlement - $225,000 – Workers’ Compensation

    We successfully negotiated a settlement of workers’ compensation benefits for a man who suffered a right foot crush injury resulting in amputation of the foot.  Our representation during the case helped him to receive medical treatment benefits, a prosthetic foot, and disability benefits prior to the settlement.  The settlement was invested so that our client will receive future annuity payments to ensure that he will be able to receive the ongoing medical treatment he will need.


  • Settlement - $260,000 – Fall from Stairs

    We obtained a settlement of $260,000 in a civil action for an Army veteran who was injured when he fell down a flight of exterior wooden steps that led from his second-floor apartment to the parking lot in Davie County, NC.   The apartment complex denied liability.  We were able to uncover evidence that the steps had not been properly maintained and were in violation of building code, and that many other staircases in the same apartment complex were substandard as well.  This man had no other option for entering and leaving his home and had reported the problems with the stairs to management numerous times with no remedial action taken.


These are just a few of over five-hundred cases that our firm has handled for clients who have been injured at work or by someone else’s negligent acts.  We pride ourselves in lending a strong voice to people who, by no fault of their own, are trying to heal and yet are forced to fight against powerful insurance companies who deny them the fair compensation that the law aims to provide.  We cannot heal the damage but we believe our vigorous representation allows families to move forward and to obtain a measure of justice.
