If you’ve recently experienced a personal injury due to a car accident, work-related event, or simply from a slip and fall, you deserve to be compensated for all injuries caused from that accident. To take effective legal action, you need to find the best personal injury lawyer. While there are many attorneys willing to represent clients in North Carolina, it’s vital to find the top firm to help you achieve the best legal outcome possible. 

Personal Injuries: The Need for a Qualified Attorney 

There may be a question of why someone may need an attorney for a personal injury. Often, it’s because a person has fallen victim to not getting the appropriate compensation they deserve from the person or company responsible for their injury. 

A personal injury may entail: 

  • A broken bone
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Burns, cuts, or lacerations
  • Spinal cord, neck, and back injuries
  • Nerve damage
  • Chronic pain and paralysis
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder

Personal injuries may be as a result of: 

  • Automobile Accidents 
  • Truck Accidents 
  • Rideshare Accidents 
  • Motorcycle Accidents
  • Slip and Fall Injuries
  • Nursing Home Abuse 
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Wrongful Death 

An experienced personal injury lawyer can fight tirelessly on your behalf to help you get the proper justice you deserve. And if your case permits it, there are also attorneys for medical malpractice cases. Malpractice cases are when a healthcare professional (nurse, doctor, or caregiver) injures or harms a patient because they were not able to conduct their job in a correct manner.  

Medical malpractice includes: 

  • Nursing Home Abuse or Negligence
  • Wrongful Death
  • Birth Injuries
  • Reactions to Incorrect Medication
  • Worsening Conditions Due to Improper Treatment or Diagnosis

If you were in a situation where improper medical treatment led to a serious personal injury, it’s crucial to contact an experienced legal expert to help you get the settlement you are owed.

Finding the Best Personal Injury Lawyer

One negligent action can lead to a world of suffering, and if you obtained a personal injury as a result, you need a leading representative to ensure you receive a fair settlement. Before choosing the first law firm in a Google search, it’s essential to consider a variety of factors to ensure you pick an experienced partner. 

Define Your Needs

So, what does it mean to find the best personal injury lawyer for you or your loved one? Well, first, you must define your needs and what exactly you're looking for. For example, if you’ve experienced a neck injury from a car accident and have yet to file a claim regarding the accident, it may be best to reach out to a lawyer who specializes in this area of legal practice. 

It’s also important to consider the specifics of your personal injury case, like the type of injury sustained, medical bill expenses, the severity of damages, and any unique circumstances surrounding the incident, to ensure you reach out to an attorney with experience in that realm. Selecting the right partner to fight for your case may seem difficult, but by defining your needs and finding a lawyer who has the same values as you, you can be on your way to a settlement as someone who is not just a victim but someone who was wrongfully treated. 

Consider their Reputation 

It is very important that you choose a qualified attorney with a good reputation to represent your personal injury case. You want someone who will have your best interests at heart, and in order for you to truly trust someone, you have to know that they are qualified for the job. The only way for you to know that they are qualified is to know that they have taken on cases like yours before with satisfying results.

Research Successful Lawsuits 

While not every case will end up in a win, a history of positive outcomes can help you choose the best personal injury lawyer for your case. 

Irons and Irons was able to settle a recent personal injury case involving Brenda Wilmot, an airline pilot for Southwest Airlines. Brenda was stopped in traffic when a truck driving for C.A.V.E. Systems rear ended her, driving at 20 miles mph. While Wilmot did not immediately seek medical attention, she realized she was having pain in her head, neck, back, and right arm and hand the next day. She began to experience seizures when she was diagnosed with a concussion by a neurologist. Her injuries led her to be unable to perform her job duties as an airline pilot.  

Attorney Harry H. Albritton represented Brenda Wilmot’s personal injury case. Instead of settling in court, the plaintiff and the defendant sat down for mediation. In December 2020, a settlement of $850,000 was reached after just two weeks. Irons and Irons' approach involved settling outside of court, leading the plaintiff to a more favorable outcome. 

The plaintiff will be awarded damages, and it’s a much quicker process than settling in court or going through a trial. Some cases in court can take months, even years, before a settlement is made. There is also the benefit of less stress when settling outside of court. The legal process of settling in court can often induce significant stress, making an out-of-court settlement a preferable option for victims. This approach simplifies matters and alleviates the burden on the victim.
