Personal Injury

This area of practice is available in Cumberland county (NC).

Injured in a car wreck? Slip and fall? Chemical burn or malfunctioning equipment?

When you’re injured due to someone else’s negligence, that’s as personal as it gets. Without a legal team, it can mean the difference between bearing the hardship on your own and holding the responsible party accountable to recover what you may be entitled to under the law.

Before speaking to insurance adjusters or accepting a settlement, consult the High Performance Law™ team at Hutchens Law Firm. For personal injury cases, we offer no-cost initial consultations and contingency fees in personal injury cases — so if your case is not won, there is no fee for you to pay.**

Our Personal Injury attorney will vigorously pursue your claim so you can focus on healing emotionally, physically and financially. We may help you recover:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages (past and possibly future)
  • Pain and suffering
  • Post-traumatic stress
  • Punitive damages as a deterrent to future negligence
     

*Note: Each case is different and must be evaluated on its individual facts. Prior results are no guarantee of future outcomes.
**Note: Clients are responsible for costs in addition to attorneys' fees. Percentage of attorney fees is calculated before deducting costs.

What if it’s the fault of an individual, and that person doesn’t have money to compensate? Sometimes the individual at fault believes he or she has no insurance available to compensate you. If that is the case, we will look to other insurance coverage – maybe even your own. If we find there is no insurance from those sources, we will do everything in our power to try to obtain a judgment in your favor and then help you enforce and collect that financial judgment – whether it’s a direct payment, seizure of assets, or otherwise.

Most often, we are up against the responsible party’s insurance company. This can happen in the case of auto accidents or corporate negligence. Whatever the cause, the job of the insurance company is to protect its own financial interests and limit what it compensates you. We have the legal know-how, experience, and tenacity to act as your representative and fight for what you may be entitled to under the law.
