At The Doyle Law Offices, P.A. our founding attorney, Hank Doyle, has been successfully representing injured people in North Carolina since 1995. Personal injury claims generally arise when a person suffers bodily injury due to the negligence or carelessness of another. Typical situations that may give rise to a claim for personal injury include:
Commonly known as “trip and fall” cases. Typically, when a person falls or gets hurt because there was a hazardous condition in a home or place of business; such as uneven walkways, defective stairs, broken glass, wet or slippery walking surfaces, etc.
When dog owners fail to prudently manage their animals or allow them to run loose resulting in someone suffering a dog bite injury.
When a doctor, hospital or healthcare provider fails to provide medical care to meet the basic standard of care for the particular condition that results in injury or death to the patient;
There are situations where people who are victims of assault or physical violence can pursue a personal injury claim against the wrongdoer separate and apart from any criminal prosecutions that may take place.
In most instances, persons pursuing a personal injury claim will be dealing with an insurance company. The services of an experienced personal injury lawyer are vital in this process. When our firm is hired to represent an injured person, we take over the entire process so the client can focus on their recovery. We gather all the medical records, lost wages documentation and all other evidence necessary to present the strongest possible claim.
The next step is to present a formal demand to the insurance company for the negligent or at fault person who caused the injury. Sometimes, an agreement on a settlement amount can be reached at this stage, saving a lot of time, and getting the injured client the money they deserve quicker. In other instances, no agreement can be reached or the insurance company rejects responsibility. When that happens, we prepare the paperwork necessary and file a lawsuit against the negligent, at fault individual. The insurance company for that individual is then required to provide a defense attorney, pay the defendant’s litigation expenses and eventually will still be writing the check when settlement or a court verdict is reached.
We have over 25 years of experience with this process. We have helped hundreds of clients over the years get the compensation they need and are entitled to.
