Skilled Personal Injury Lawyers in Wilmington, NC
Located alongside the Cape Fear River, Wilmington is a historic North Carolina town known as much for its Revolutionary War and Civil War history as for its appeal as a modern movie production locale. The population in this riverside city has increased steadily since 1980, and in 2022, approximately 127,000 people resided in Wilmington.
As with many growing cities, as the population increases, so do the accidents. In Wilmington, people are injured travelling to and from work, at their workplaces, and in their neighborhoods – and many of these accidents are caused by other people’s negligence.
If you have been injured in an accident, consider seeking compensation for any harms and losses incurred. Contact the Wilmington office of the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin for a free case evaluation.

Do I Want a Lawyer For My Personal Injury Case?
Yes, we strongly recommend speaking with a lawyer about your personal injury case. North Carolina is one of the few states that follows the contributory negligence rule, which states that if it can be proved that you contributed in any way (even 1%) to the accident in which you were injured, the insurance company may be able to use this to deny your claim. An attorney can guide you on how to answer questions and try to avoid contributory negligence pitfalls.
An injury lawyer helping Wilmington, NC can also help you in the following ways:
- Getting records from medical providers
- Investigating who may be at fault
- Identifying sources of possible compensation
- Gathering evidence
- Documenting communications
- Determining potential case value
You do not have to pursue your personal injury claim on your own. And you don’t have to worry about whether or not you can afford an attorney. At our firm, we work on a contingency fee basis, which is another way of saying that our attorney’s fee is based on a percentage of the total if we recover for you.2
Simply put, you do not pay us an attorney’s fee if we do not recover compensation for your personal injury claim. This type of fee structure allows you to obtain the services of an attorney at the beginning of your case, even if you don’t have the funds.2
