Personal Injury Attorney
If you have been the victim of negligence that caused a serious physical, mental or emotional injury or impairment, you may have a case for personal injury compensation. We help injury victims whose lives have been changed by car accidents, medical malpractice, birth injuries, equipment or product design defects/malfunction, and intentional torts such as sexual molestation claims or sexual abuse claims. No one can undo the injury you have suffered. We cannot unbreak a bone, or reverse the emotional trauma that has happened as a result of molestation or abuse. What we can do; however, is help you recover and transition into life after your personal injury accident.
At the law office of Michael Scott Petty Attorney at Law, we work with people throughout North Carolina, pursuing maximum compensation from at-fault parties and their insurance companies.
Getting Results From Insurance Companies
In many cases, our clients come to us after an already arduous struggle for the collection of benefits. They do not get their phone calls answered by insurance companies, the compensation they have been offered is dramatically undervalued, and they are still struggling to get the medical attention they need.
We can help you in cases of catastrophic injuries, such as those related to:
- Car accidents
- Trucking accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Birth injuries and birth defects (i.e., cerebral palsy)
- Intentional tort cases (i.e., sexual abuse and molestation cases)
- Alienation of affection and criminal conversation (as related to adultery and contributing to the destruction of a martial relationship)
Should I Accept My Initial Injury Claim Settlement?
Our intimate understanding of insurance coverage and the claims process plays a large role in our success at Michael Scott Petty Attorney at Law.
Mr. Petty is a long-standing North Carolina trial lawyer and experienced arbitrator who has handled a wide range of unique cases, including the effective resolution of thousands of dollars worth in uninsured and under-insured motorist cases.
He collaborates with economists, medical professionals and lifetime-care planning experts to determine what level of compensation would reflect his clients’ initial and long-term needs — something many initial settlement packages fail to address.
Insurance companies aim to limit the amount of money they pay out for claims and maximize the money they collect in premiums. Driven by profit, not by your medical care, they will often offer initial settlements that provide the bare minimum allowed by policy guidelines.
If you are not being provided the care you need and the compensation you deserve, we will prepare to litigate your case and take it to trial. While many cases still settle outside of court, we know we are equipped to be successful there when necessary.
