How Can We Help You Today?
Personal injury claims are among the most common civil litigation in North Carolina courts. While most personal injury cases settle before going to trial, even if you are settling a car accident injury case you want an experienced Charlotte car accident attorney to represent you. The insurance company’s priority is to protect its profit margin, so without aggressive negotiations from a skilled personal injury lawyer, you are likely to walk away without as much compensation as you might have been able to get with the help of a lawyer. We represent clients who have suffered serious injuries because of someone else’s negligence including:
We represent clients who have been injured in all types of car accidents. You might have been involved in a hit-and-run accident where the driver left the scene and left you wondering how you are going to pay for your injuries and property damage. What happens if you become injured in an Uber and Lyft car accident? We represent client who have suffered from whiplash injuries, and in car accidents caused by drunk drivers. t can be much easier to prove negligence in drunk driving accidents and distracted driving accidents because both types of accidents are caused by the dangerous choices made by the driver and could have been prevented had he or she just made a different choice.
Queen City residents love to get out and walk our beautiful streets and ride their bicycles for fun and for earth-friendly, economical transportation. But the hazards of getting injured or killed in Car and Bicycle Accidents and Pedestrian and Car Accidents might make some people have second thoughts about the safety of walking and riding their bicycles.
Recovering compensation after a truck accident is far more complicated than for a car accident. Truck drivers are professionals. Some truck drivers work for a trucking company or a fleet operator and some are self-employed. Employers are responsible for the conduct of their employees when they are, “on the clock,” so if you are injured in a truck accident, you may be able to recover compensation from the driver and his or her employer.
Drowsy driving truck accidents occur when commercial truck drivers violate the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) hours of service (HOS) rules. Your experienced Charlotte trucking accident lawyer can find out if the driver who caused the crash that injured you was in compliance with HOS rules at the time of the crash.
Each year in the United States, more than 4,800 motorcycle riders die in traffic crashes, and fatalities for motorcyclists are 27 times more likely to occur in a crash than occupants of other vehicles. (NHTSA) Motorcycle riders would love to be able to enjoy the freedom and exhilaration of riding on the open road without the nagging worry about whether they will be involved in a car accident because a motorist did not see them in enough time to avoid crashing into them.
Because of the tremendous g-forces involved in a car accident, some survivors can end up with severe head and spine injuries that have a lasting negative impact on their quality of life and ability to work. Our Charlotte car accident lawyers have helped clients who have suffered from paralysis because of a spinal cord injury, or a traumatic brain injury that caused permanent disability.
Despite the careful engineering that goes into motor vehicle design that protects the vehicle from bursting into flames in a crash, fires still occur in car accidents and they can cause serious, permanent injuries and disfigurement. People also suffer from burn injuries because of defective products, medical malpractice injures, and workplace injuries. We help clients who have sustained serious burns because of someone else’s negligence.
While they may seem devastating at the time of the accident, most injuries will heal, and the injured person will go back to his or her daily life. Some injuries are so severe that they cause permanent injuries that do not allow injured people to enjoy life the way they used to, or do the work they did before the accident. At Warren & Kallianos, we make sure that our clients who have sustained catastrophic injuries receive the compensation they need to cover their ongoing medical expenses and to provide a quality of life despite their tragic circumstances.
The construction industry continues to be one of the most dangerous for workers. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that of the 5,190 workplace fatalities in 2016, 970 were in the construction industry. Workers sustain serious and sometimes catastrophic injuries in the construction trades, and people lose loved ones in fatal accidents, many of which are from falls.
Some examples of construction accidents which can lead to injury or death include:
Anyone who has suffered an unexpected death of a loved one knows that no amount of compensation will come close to making up for his or her loss. It will, however, pay for medical expenses, final expenses and attempt to make up for the loss of companionship, affection, parental support, and spousal consortium that loved ones will never enjoy again.
Workers who sustain injuries on the job or who are diagnosed with an occupational disease may be able to qualify for workers’ compensation. With most workplace injuries, applying for and receiving workers’ compensation is a simple process, but sometimes, your employer’s workers’ compensation insurer will deny your legitimate claim, or may force you to return to work before you feel well enough. If you are facing any type of workers’ compensation dispute, the knowledgeable Charlotte workplace injury lawyers from Warren & Kallianos are prepared to represent you and protect your right to the compensation you deserve.
Sometimes, workers who are injured in workplace accidents do not qualify for workers’ compensation benefits. This does not mean that they are not entitled to recover compensation for their medical expenses, lost time and work, and pain and suffering. Our skilled workplace injury attorneys can help hold the parties responsible for your injuries liable for your losses.
North Carolina property owners have a legal liability to maintain the safety of their property and to protect customers, clients, and other invited guests from reasonably foreseeable hazards. When a guest at a resort is assaulted in a darkened passageway, when a visitor falls on poorly maintained stairs, or a mall patron slips and falls on a slick floor the injured person may be able to hold the property owner liable for his or her injuries.
Manufacturers owe a duty of care to the consumer who will use their products to create a product that is safe and works as advertised. When a defective product causes serious injury, a skilled Charlotte product liability lawyer is here to help the injured person recover compensation.
