Personal injury claims include auto and trucking accidents, on-the-job injuries, premises liability cases, toxic exposure cases, products liability cases and many kinds of negligence in between. The legal theory for many personal injury claims is negligence, meaning that a person or business failed to act in a reasonably prudent manner, which results in harm or injury to another person. If you or a loved one has been injured by someone else’s negligence or wrongful conduct, you may be entitled to compensation and should take action sooner rather than later. Personal injury claims are governed by a strict statute of limitations, meaning that an accident victim can lose their rights if they fail to take action in a timely manner. A Raleigh based personal injury attorney can help determine whether you are entitled to compensation as a result of your injuries.Wrongful Death
When the negligence of a person or business results in an accident victim’s death, the surviving family members may be able to pursue a wrongful death claim against the defendant(s). Under North Carolina and Virginia law, a personal representative of the decedent’s estate may be able to pursue a wrongful death claim in an effort to hold the defendant(s) responsible for their wrongful conduct in causing the death. After establishing that the victim’s death was caused by the defendant’s negligence, surviving members may be entitled to compensation for things such as medical bills of the decedent, funeral expenses, burial costs, loss of the victim’s earnings and earning capacity, pain and suffering of the victim, and the loss of the victim’s services and support to other family members. North Carolina and Virginia wrongful death claims are governed by a strict two-year statute of limitations so it is important to contact a Raleigh based personal injury law firm to discuss your potential wrongful death claim as soon as possible.Car Accidents
Car accidents are likely the most common examples of personal injury cases. In order to prove your right to compensation after a North Carolina or Virginia car accident, you will need to establish that your injuries were caused by a defendant’s failure to act as a reasonable and prudent person would have acted under the circumstances. An accident victim must also show that they would not have suffered injury in the absence of the defendant’s careless or wrongful conduct. At Burton Law Firm, we have held negligent drivers responsible in car accident cases involving distracted driving, texting and driving, intoxicated driving, and many more. Contact our Raleigh personal injury attorney today to let our experience work for you.Trucking Accidents
Trucking accidents generally involve more serious injuries because of the forces involved and heavy loads carried by over-the-road truckers. In addition to the general duties to operate vehicles in a safe and prudent manner, commercial drivers and trucking companies are bound by certain laws and duties, including those set forth in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. If you’ve been injured as a result of a trucking accident, you may be entitled to compensation from the truck driver as well as the company that employs. The trucking company may be responsible simply as a result of the fact that they employ the driver but may bear direct responsibility for your injuries based on other circumstances including their failure to properly train the driver, violation of company policy or state or federal law, or violation of hours of service requirements. Burton Law Firm has substantial experience battling trucking companies and their insurance carriers and is proud to provide a voice for those fighting for reasonable compensation as a result of a trucking accident.Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle accidents are increasingly common and can result in serious and catastrophic injuries to motorcycle riders throughout North Carolina and Virginia. In many circumstances, motorcycle accident victims experience broken bones, head injuries, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, or other devastating injuries that widely impact the victim’s ability to work and engage in activities of daily living. Burton Law Firm has substantial experience representing motorcycle operators that have been injured by the wrongful conduct of another and, in each case, our Raleigh personal injury law firm fights to maximize compensation for motorcycle accident victims.DUI Accidents
Everyday, citizens of North Carolina and Virginia are injured by intoxicated drivers who take to the streets under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Despite widely known dangers associated with intoxicated driving, statistics demonstrate that accidents caused by intoxicated drivers are increasing year after year. Under North Carolina and Virginia law, if you have been injured by an intoxicated driver, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, future medical costs, loss of earnings and earning capacity, and pain and suffering. You may also be entitled to collect punitive damages from the personal that caused your injuries. While compensatory damages are meant to restore the injured party to the capacity they occupied before the accident, punitive damages are intended to punish the defendant for their wrongful conduct in causing the injuries in the first place. If you’ve been injured by an intoxicated driver, you need the service of an experienced personal injury law firm that can help collect all damages to which you are entitled.Business Litigation
