Typical Injuries that Require an Attorney in Charlotte

Dealing with Charlotte personal injuries that could have been avoided with the reasonable care of someone else is a situation made more painful when you have to pay out of pocket for some or all expenses.  While even moderate injuries are likely to see the fullest compensation with the help of an attorney, serious injuries absolutely require an injury lawyer. 

Moderate injuries

A lawsuit is not always required to receive full compensation for personal injuries.  In Charlotte, the following types of injuries can benefit from the assistance of a skilled attorney who can negotiate an out-of-court or insurance settlement:

  • Broken bones
  • Whiplash
  • Non-critical head injuries

Whenever full recovery is expected within a relatively limited period of time, you generally do not need to take your case to court.  But, you do need a skilled attorney to ensure you receive full and fair settlement for your claim.

Severe injuries

Many serious injuries can heal over an extended period of time.  Unfortunately, many result in permanent disability, potentially requiring a lifetime of specialized care.  In these cases, your best chances for receiving the compensation you deserve are to take your case to court before a jury.  A local Charlotte personal injury law firm with extensive courtroom experience is required to ensure you obtain full compensation for the past, present, and future potential costs for injuries like the following:

  • Severe head and brain trauma:  The brain is the control center for the entire body.  The results of brain injury can include damage to virtually any bodily functions, including sensory capabilities, the functioning of the organs, and movement.
  • Neck and spine injury:  The spinal area is extremely delicate.  It is easily injured and often difficult to repair.  Injury to this area can result in loss of ability or full paralysis of the arms and legs.
  • Internal organ injuries:  Damage to the internal organs causes loss of function to whatever bodily functions they control.  In the best cases, organs can be repaired or replaced.  In other cases, these injuries can require a lifetime of treatment or mechanical support.

When in doubt, seek legal assistance

The support of an injury lawyer in Charlotte can include providing up-front advice in handling your own case, representing your interests in court, or anything in between these two extremes.  In most cases, the first consultation is provided at no charge.  And, the most experienced attorneys take your case on a contingency basis—there is no charge until you win your case.
