Injuries Happen – We’re Here to Help

No one wakes up and thinks, “Today, I’m going to get hurt.” Part of the stress of an injury is that it can completely destroy the comfort of a routine. When someone else’s negligence or maliciousness results in an injury, you want to be sure your rights are protected.

Whether it’s a dog bite, defective product, electrocution, etc., the person at fault for your injury should be held liable for making you whole. Contact our team of Durham injury lawyers – we fight hard for our clients.

Helping Those Hurt on the Job Is Our Job

As a part of the Research Triangle, Durham is a hot spot for medical and research jobs. The types of jobs are diverse, however. Duke University and Health Systems, CREE, and IBM are just a few big names you’ll find, plus the growth Durham is experiencing means more construction jobs. When something happens at work, and you’re hurt, know that you’re not alone.

North Carolina has a workers’ compensation system in place to care for injured workers. We have several NC State Bar Board Certified Specialists in Workers’ Compensation Law on our staff. If you’re hurt and don’t know where to turn, turn to an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer in Durham.

The Gregson Street overpass, a sort of Durham landmark due to tall trucks crashing into it.

Put Our Experience in Your Corner if You Are Injured on the Road

This is sort of a Durham landmark because a nearby office worker set up a camera to record the trucks that, too tall to fit beneath, crash into the bridge – even after a traffic light was set up there in 2016 to prevent the activity. In 2019, there were 9,898 crashes in Durham alone, which led to 3,645 injuries and 22 fatalities. Car accidents are common. Throughout the county in 2019, there were also 64 motorcycle crashes that resulted in 53 injuries and one fatality.

If you’ve been injured in an accident, contact our car accident attorneys in Durham to discuss your situation as soon as possible.

Disability Denied? Don’t Give Up

There are many people who are disabled and simply unable to work consistently enough to earn a living. For those people, Social Security Disability may be able to help. But what happens when an application is denied? The fact is, almost half of all decisions rendered by Administrative Law Judges in the area are denials.

But there may be hope. An experienced Social Security Disability lawyer in Durham can help you appeal for the compensation you may deserve by gathering information and evidence, and focusing on the critical details. Call us to discuss your case!
