Personal Injury Lawyer in New Bern
Helping You Take Action Following Your Injury
Accidents happen. No matter how careful we are or what precautions we take, there is always the possibility that someone else will be careless or negligent and therefore cause you or someone you love to be seriously injured. At the Whitley Law Firm, we are committed to helping clients throughout New Bern who have been injured and are in need of a personal injury lawyer to help them through this difficult time.
Personal injury accidents are no laughing matter. They can cause a host of serious and life-threatening injuries for the accident victim. Some of the types of injuries we commonly see in our office include
brain & spinal cord injuries, broken bones, neck and back injuries, burn injuries and permanent scarring and disfigurement. In the worst cases, we handle
wrongful death claims for those family members of those who did not survive their tragic accidents or injuries.
Why a Settlement is Important
Physical injuries can quickly incur thousands of dollars in medical bills, and not to mention lost income for the victim. Lost income can make paying for necessary medical treatment, medication and everyday living expenses next to impossible for the accident victim, especially in those cases where they do not have their own medical insurance to cover the costs of medical care.
What's more, in most personal injury cases, the dependents and spouses of the accident victim are personally affected by the accident as well. Without the accident victim being able to care for his or her children and spouse, the victim's family can suffer the devastating effects of losing the income their injured family member used to provide. This hardship is in addition to the emotional turmoil the family experiences from losing their loved one.
Our Firm's Areas of Practice
In reviewing the circumstances of your case, an experienced New Bern personal injury attorney at our law offices can determine how to best approach the process of holding the negligent party responsible for their actions. We can evaluate the worth of your claim and see what type of financial damages you may be able to receive, such as money for medical bills, lost earnings, emotional damages, future losses or expenses, and more. Our goal is to give you the information that will help you make informed decisions about your case.
There are numerous different circumstances that may warrant a New Bern personal injury claim, which is filed when someone causes injury to another person due to negligence, recklessness or intentional wrongdoing. Auto accidents are the most common reason for personal injury claims. These can include accident that involve
motorcycles and various other types of vehicles. In fact, even
pedestrians can also be injured in auto-related accidents. Sometimes, a
drunk driver is the party that caused the accident to occur. Other types of personal injury cases our firm handled include those related to
slip and fall accidents,
dangerous and defective products and many other areas. Regardless of the circumstances of your claim or the extent of injury sustained, a personal injury attorney at our law offices can offer you a free consultation to discuss the case and what we can do to assist you.
