Motor Vehicle Negligence

Plaintiff was injured in a rear end motor vehicle collision, which resulted in no property damage to the defendant driver's vehicle. Plaintiff sustained a concussion and despite diligent efforts to follow her treating providers' instructions, she continued to suffer from post-concussive syndrome years after the collision. Ultimately, her continued symptoms caused her to resign from her position of employment and take early retirement. In reaching a satisfactory resolution to her claim, we overcame challenges in valuation due to her pre-existing condition as well as objections to the reasonableness and necessity of her decision to resign from her employment and take early retirement.

Personal Injury - General Negligence

While playing a game of tennis, plaintiff sustained a fractured hip when a player on an adjacent court chased a ball into Plaintiff's court and blindsided him, knocking him to the ground. Following his injury, Plaintiff underwent an immediate partial hip replacement and several months of rehabilitation. Plaintiff recovered well from surgery and was deemed to need no future treatment by his treating physician. In negotiating a successful resolution to this matter, we outlined the law surrounding waivers and assumption of risk in the state of North Carolina and reached an amicable settlement which provided for non-economic damages (pain and suffering) in excess of $120,000.00.

Personal Injury: Statutory and Common Law Negligence; Breach of Contract

Plaintiff suffered a concussion and multiple compression fractures in her lumbar spine when the railing on her porch gave way and she fell to the concrete driveway several feet below. Plaintiff was a long-term residential tenant of landlord and, despite the dilapidated condition of her residence, she never complained to her landlord or provided notice of areas of concern. After being hospitalized for seven days and spending a week in a rehabilitation center, Plaintiff made a full recovery from her injuries. In reaching a resolution to this matter, we negotiated a fair settlement, overcoming defenses of lack of notice to the landlord and contributory negligence based on Plaintiff's impairment at the time of injury.

Personal Injury - Dog Encounter

Plaintiff was walking her puppy at the park when a pit bull in an adjacent yard broke through its fence and charged the Plaintiff. In an effort to protect her dog, Plaintiff became entangled in her dog's leash and fell, sustaining compression fractures in her lumbar spine. The pit bull never made contact with the plaintiff or her pet. Plaintiff's initial treatment provider failed to properly diagnose her injury, which ultimately required her to undergo a Kyphoplasty procedure, from which plaintiff healed well. Shortly following the incident, the defendant dog owner passed away from cancer. Despite facing strong defenses based on lack of notice and contributory negligence, we settled this claim pre-suit to the satisfaction of our client.
