Fayetteville Personal Injury Lawyer Fighting For Your Rights
We can handle your injury claim or file a lawsuit on your behalf
You reasonably expect to be safe when you’re on someone else’s property in Fayetteville, North Carolina. That’s why it can be so upsetting and confusing if you or a loved one sustain a serious injury due to dangerous or hazardous conditions in a parking lot, restaurant or another public place. The same goes for being attacked by a dog or another animal in public. No one expects to that happen. Unfortunately, such incidents take place all the time.
If you or a loved one were hurt in a personal injury accident, it’s critical that you take strong legal action to protect your rights. Otherwise, your injury might not get the attention it deserves. In addition, you might not get the money you need for medical care, replacement income and other injury-related expenses. Fortunately, you’re not alone. We can help.

What is a personal injury?
A personal injury accident is any type of accident that happens due to someone else’s negligent or reckless behavior. Some of the most common – and most serious – types of personal injury claims include cases involving:
- Slip and fall accidents on someone else’s property, often due to dangerous or hazardous conditions on a sidewalk, in a hallway, at a swimming pool or another public space.
- Nursing home abuse and neglect cases involving illnesses or injuries to residents due to actions or inaction of nursing home employees. Examples include nursing home infections due to neglect and injuries due to abusive nursing home staff members.
- Dog bites and animal attacks caused by unsupervised dogs on someone else’s property or other dangerous conditions.
- Wrongful death accidents in which a family member dies due to the negligent actions of someone else.
Is this how your accident happened in Westover or Terry Sanford? Or are you dealing with a different type of personal injury claim in another neighborhood in Fayetteville? Whatever the circumstances of your injury, our law firm can help you file a claim or a lawsuit on your behalf. We also handle cases involving workers’ compensation and Social Security Disability claims in North Carolina.
What are my options?
In many cases, you often have three options available to you after your injury. These options include:
- Accept a settlement claim from the at-fault party. This is often the insurance company for the person or company responsible for causing your injury accident.
- Ask for more money or negotiate a better settlement offer, especially if the at-fault party’s insurance company made a lowball offer that doesn’t even come close to covering all your accident-related expenses.
- File a lawsuit or take other legal action in Cumberland County, especially if the at-fault party’s insurance company refuses to negotiate and acts in bad faith.
In each case, an experienced lawyer can work with you and make sure your rights are respected after an injury caused by someone else’s reckless or negligent behavior.
Who can I sue?
North Carolina has a fault-based insurance system. That means the at-fault party is responsible for compensating injury victims for their medical expenses, replacement income if they cannot work during their recovery and other accident-related expenses.
As a result, you can take legal action against the person or business responsible for your injury. Often, this is the property owner or business owner where your accident took place. The same is true for dog bites and animal attacks. As for nursing home injuries, you will often need to take legal action directly against the nursing home.
Keep in mind you only have a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit or take other legal action. In North Carolina, that deadline (known as the statute of limitations) is generally three years from the date of your injury. Three years might seem like a long time. But the longer you wait, the harder it often gets to find the evidence you need to build a strong legal case. An experienced lawyer can help you demand the justice you deserve after your injury accident.
