Boating Accident Attorney

Injured a North Carolina boat accident?
Thousands of people in North Carolina choose to spend their leisure time on the Atlantic Ocean or on one of the State’s many lakes or rivers. While recreational boating is a source of great fun and enjoyment for many people, a day on the water can quickly become every person’s worst nightmare when a boating accident occurs. A boating accident can result in serious consequences to those involved, including debilitating injuries and even death.

We offer experienced representation to victims of boating accidents throughout North Carolina. After a serious boat accident, the victims on board may not know where to turn or who they should go to for help. If you or someone you love was involved in a boating accident, a skilled North Carolina boating accident lawyer at our office can review the facts of your case to determine whether or not you may have a valid personal injury claim. If you have grounds for a lawsuit, you can trust our skilled legal team to help you file a claim against the appropriate parties and make sure your rights and best interests are protected throughout the legal process.

Causes of Boating Accidents
You may be entitled to compensation if you can prove the accident occurred as the result of another person’s negligence. Some examples of negligence that may lead to a boating accident lawsuit include:

  • Boating under the influence
  • Reckless boating
  • Driving the boat at excessive speeds
  • Overloading the boat with too many people
  • Failing to abide by boating safety laws
  • Operation inattention

As long as you are able to prove negligence and establish liability, you could stand to recover damages for your pain and suffering, mental anguish, lost wages, loss of benefits, medical bills, property damage, and decreased quality of life.

Bicycle Accident Lawyer

Injury Attorney for North Carolina Bike Accident Victims
An experienced attorney can help you take legal action if you were struck by an at-fault motorist while riding your bike. Unfortunately, bicycle accidents occur more often then we’d like to believe. When a person riding a bike is struck by a car, truck or other motor vehicle, it is not uncommon for the bicyclist to suffer from any number of serious injuries. Drivers and passengers in vehicles are protected by steel doors, windshields, airbags, and a seat belt. Aside from their helmet, bike riders have no protection during an accident. As such, a bicyclist may suffer brain damage, paralysis, back or spinal cord injuries, internal injuries, disfigurement, permanent disability, or even death.

Recovering Compensation in a Bicycle Accident Case
The cost of treating the injuries sustained in a bicycle accident can easily escalate into possibly hundreds of thousands of dollars-a figure most people cannot afford, especially when their injuries keep them out work. Fortunately, accident victims may be able to recover compensation if they can prove another person was at fault for the accident. However, because North Carolina is a “contributory negligence” state, the defense can avoid paying damages by claiming the victim was partially at fault.

At our law offices, our legal team is prepared to work hard to get to the bottom of your case. Our staff is comprised of attorneys, insurance adjusters, accident investigators, and paralegals, all of whom work together to prepare a strong claim that helps maximize our clients’ chances of recovering a fair settlement. When faced with this difficult situation, you can depend on our staff to provide you with the legal guidance and support you will need as you seek compensation for your injuries.

With almost two decades of experience, we have the knowledge, resources, and skill to handle even the most complex and difficult bicycle accident claims. We are fully committed to protecting our clients’ best interests, and helping to make sure any rights to recovery are honored and upheld. Helping our clients recover the compensation they may rightfully deserve is our number one priority!
