Life is characterized by uncertainty. This inability to foretell what will happen to us is by far one of the things that make life interesting. When an unexpected event occurs and leaves you injured the activities of daily living can become very difficult.
Our bodies are built to be resilient but an injury to the body or mind can be difficult to overcome. North Carolina personal injury law is the forum in which injured parties attempt to hold the at fault party responsible for their actions. It includes automobile accidents, injuries at work, medical malpractices, slip and falls, deliberate negligence, and everything else in between. Personal injury law protects a person from these events by helping them recover their losses.
The largest segment of personal injury law cases in Charlotte, and by extension, North Carolina is automobile accidents. Given the abundance of vehicles on our roads today this is not surprising. North Carolina law holds that the driver (and owner) of a vehicle are in control of the vehicle and are responsible for any accident the vehicle is involved in. Where a person suffers bodily harm because of accident personal injury law can help the injured party get the compensation they deserve.
Recovering from Your Personal Injury
Depending on the kind of injury the recovery process can be quite demanding. For example, when someone has experienced a significant injury it is not unusually to have an extended hospital stay. An unfortunate reality in North Carolina is that medical care (especially hospital stays) is extremely expensive. When the injury is emotional distress, inflicted either intentionally or through negligence, the result is an unsettled state of mind. For both types of cases the healing process can be long and extensive. During the healing process the at fault party’s insurance does not make any payments. As such, it can be a very taxing time physically and financially.
Credible personal injury attorneys in Charlotte are specialized in this area of law, technically referred to as tort law. They offer legal representation, with the aim of seeking recompense for whatever affliction the victim has had to endure. A credible attorney can explain your rights and options after you suffer an injury. Further, your attorney should be able to explain what type of compensation you are entitled to receive. These could range from medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and emotional distress to permanent injury and scarring. A good personal injury attorney will ensure that the right kind of compensation is awarded for your kind of injury.

"The first attorney I contacted was one of the many who sent me a flyer or letter after I was hit by a car. That attorney’s assistant did not even put my call through when I told her I thought I had only soft tissue damage. So I looked and found Matthew Fleishman. That was one of the best phone calls I’ve ever made! My call was put right through to him. Attorney M. Fleishman urged me to keep seeing a doctor when my pain persisted and he was so right. I ended up having 2 surgeries as a result of that wreck. He was patient and always returned my calls. He worked hard on my behalf. I was very happy with his level of service and the compensation I received for my injuries."
