Girdwood & Williams is experienced at using every resource at our disposal to help you obtain a successful settlement or verdict.
If you are injured on the job, you may have difficulty making ends meet because of missed work and find your medical bills stacking up. In North Carolina, employers with three or more employees are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. Depending on your case, you may be entitled to weekly checks, medical treatment and payment for any permanent disabilities or a lump sum settlement.
Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a serious crime, not just a traffic violation. In North Carolina, this offense is known as Driving While Impaired (DWI). Those charged should seek representation by an attorney experienced in these cases. There are immediate license implications once charged, and it’s important to prepare your defense at an early stage.
When you lose a loved one due to another person or entity’s negligence, family members can be entitled to significant compensation. A civil lawsuit can be brought against parties that were negligent and contributed to the death. These lawsuits can be brought even if criminal charges are also being sought.
Social Security Disability is a program managed by the Social Security Administration (SSA), an agency of the federal government. Many claims are initially denied, but appeals are often successful, especially when the person appealing has competent legal representation.
By their very nature, motorcycle and bicycle accidents can cause catastrophic physical injury. The pain and suffering associated with these injuries can be significant, not to mention the time out of work and the high medical bills that come along with severe injuries. We can help.
The penalties for alcohol and drug offenses vary widely. They can range from loss of your drivers’ license to significant jail time. North Carolina has programs in place to allow first time offenders to earn a dismissal. Don’t represent yourself; you should seek representation from an experienced criminal attorney like those at Girdwood & Williams.
