Injury Lawyers in Fayetteville, North Carolina

Attorneys Billy and Matt Richardson have been helping injured residents of Fayetteville and Southeastern, North Carolina for decades. We are a locally owned law firm that takes pride in fighting for the rights of everyday people in our community. Put our reputation, skill, and experience on your side. We’d be honored to fight for you.

Negligence Law in North Carolina

If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident or on the job due to negligent actions of another person or entity, you may be able to recover damages for the physical, emotional and financial injuries you have suffered.

Everyone has a duty to use reasonable care as they go about their daily lives. Additional duties can arise when the government passes laws. For example, a motor vehicle statute in North Carolina prohibits passing a school bus if it is stopped on a public street. Passing a stopped school bus would be a breach of a legal duty.

Another example arises in the context of medical care. Physicians in North Carolina are required to treat their patients in accordance with the standard of care that is common in their field and their community. If a doctor fails to meet this standard of care, he or she has breached a legal duty to his or her patient.

If someone breaches a legal duty and causes foreseeable damage to another person or their property, then the at-fault party is financially liable in civil court for the damage they have caused. In personal injury cases, our firm pursues claims against at-fault (negligent) parties and seeks compensation to make our clients whole.

The Richardson Firm is your legal solution to personal injury.

Your recovery is our top priority. Our professional personal injury lawyers in Fayetteville are experienced in personal injury claims, and we will represent individuals in the following legal situations:

Car Accidents: Taking On Insurance Companies

Insurance companies are for-profit entities. In an attempt to increase their profits, insurance companies and their lawyers fight tooth and nail to prevent you from receiving the compensation you deserve. If you’re involved in a car or motorcycle accident or suffered an injury at work and are experiencing difficulties with an insurance company, The Richardson Firm is here to help.  We will work to obtain a settlement that will provide you with the financial compensation you deserve. If we cannot resolve your claim through a settlement, we will be happy to file a lawsuit and fight for you in court. Matt and Billy Richardson have a reputation throughout the state of North Carolina as fierce advocates for their clients. We’re not afraid of a battle.

Overcoming Contributory Negligence

North Carolina recognizes the defense of contributory negligence in civil cases. This defense often catches injured parties off-guard, especially if they had a previous injury claim in another state. In North Carolina, if the other side can prove that the injured party was also negligent (at-fault), then the injured party can be barred from recovering any money at all.

As attorneys representing injured parties in North Carolina, we often face weak and faulty claims of contributory negligence from insurance agents and defense attorneys. These claims are sometimes made to frustrate injured parties with a hope that they will drop their injury claim and go away. If you’ve been injured and the other side is claiming that you are also negligent or at-fault, it’s imperative to find a competent and aggressive personal injury attorney to uncover the truth and fight for your rights.
