Our Practice Areas

If you or someone you know was injured in an accident or suffered injustice at the hands of an insurance company while trying to get their claims paid, you may need a tough legal advocate on your side who knows how to pursue the maximum compensation allowed under North Carolina law. You may need an attorney who has experience and knows how the insurance companies operate. Not only do we know how they operate, many know how we operate – and they know we mean business.

Over 20 years of experience negotiating with insurance companies has shown us that they tend to take a claim more seriously when an attorney is involved.

Car Accidents

A 1999 Insurance Research Council study has shown that, on average, car accident victims who hired a personal injury lawyer to represent them received 3.5X more compensation for their loss than they would have on their own.

If you've been injured in a car accident and believe you have been permanently or seriously injured, contact us right away or call 1-866-900-7078.

What is the first thing I should do if I've been in a NC auto accident?

"It is important to take the right steps in order to try to preserve your legal rights so that you may have a strong case when it is time to pursue legal compensation for your injuries and your property damages. If you have been in an auto accident, the first thing you should do is call for police and medical assistance."

Workers' Compensation

At the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin, we understand workers' compensation law and the difficulties of a workers' compensation case. Our team features several North Carolina Board Certified Specialists in workers' compensation law, as well as workers' compensation attorneys who have several years of experience working as workers' compensation defense attorneys.

Trucking Accidents

If you have suffered injuries as a result of a tractor trailer accident, semi-truck accident, transfer truck accident, or any other type of commercial truck accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. A skilled truck accident lawyer with experience may be able to help sort through these complicated commercial truck accident claims and guide you through the process.

Personal Injury

We know that accidents and injuries are, unfortunately, an inevitable part of life. But just because accidental mishaps are common does not resolve the pain and suffering injuries can cause. This is especially true if that injury could have been avoided, and resulted from someone else's negligence.

Social Security Disability

If you have been disabled and cannot work, you may be entitled to benefits under OASDI. An attorney who is a North Carolina Board Certified Specialist in Social Security Disability Law may be able to assist you with sorting out the benefits you should apply for and with coordinating those benefits with others you may be receiving, including workers' compensation benefits. The US government is no entity to try to take on, yourself – especially if you are disabled. Denials are par for the course. Let us try to help you get off the disability denial hamster wheel and get you the benefits you deserve. We offer a free case evaluation. Contact us right away or call 1-866-900-7078.

Property Damage Claims

In a large-scale disaster like a North Carolina hurricane, mayhem can quickly take hold and rule the day. Thousands of insurance adjusters will often be rushed to affected areas to assess damages as quickly as possible and – mistakes can happen. There’s no shortage of horror stories about some insurance companies denying, delaying, and misclassifying claims. And this can leave property owners in a real financial bind. (Some Hurricane Katrina victims didn’t get paid for over a decade. Others never got paid at all.) We will help you fight the insurance company for all the damages you are potentially owed.

Eminent Domain

The government can take your property for public projects, such as road widening, installation of utility lines, or construction of new schools or police stations. However, the government has to prove that your property is necessary for such projects, and it has to pay you just compensation for your property. What the government defines as “public use,” “necessary,” and “just compensation” may not be correct. An experienced eminent domain lawyer may be able to help you fight the taking of your property or fight for the full compensation you may deserve. Contact us or call 1-877-393-4990 for a free evaluation of your case.

Whistleblower Claims

Fraud against the U.S. government costs American taxpayers (i.e., you) billions of dollars each year. That's why the government needs you to protect us from companies who cheat, and they may compensate or reward you for doing so. It is not always easy to come forward, but many whistleblowers who do have been rewarded handsomely. If you suspect fraud against the federal or state government, let's talk. Contact us or call 1-844-520-2889.
