Personal Injury

We represent members of our community injured in a wide range of accidents. We also represent family members in wrongful death claims. We provide a free consultation and assist in the recovery of a variety of funds including pain and suffering, medical expenses, resulting disabilities, economic loss, property loss, and lost wages. We understand how frightening facing a sudden, life-changing accident can be. We take the time to thoroughly review your case and obtain the best possible outcome for you and your family. At Whitley Law we passionately pursue your case and you pay no fee unless we recover on your behalf.

We represent individuals injured in:

  • Vehicle Accidents
    More than a thousand vehicle accidents occur on North Carolina roadways each year. There is little a safe driver can do to protect themselves from the negligent acts of other drivers. We know what questions to ask. We have years of experience dealing with insurance companies and medical providers. We will eliminate the confusion and stress associated with falling victim to another’s carelessness so that you can focus on your recovery and reclaiming your life. We have helped many members of our communities in Brunswick, Bladen, Columbus, New Hanover, Onslow, Pender, and Wake Counties obtain fair compensation.
  • Pedestrian and Bicycle Accidents
    Pedestrians and bicyclists are particularly vulnerable to careless acts committed by negligent and distracted drivers. We know what questions to ask to protect your rights and aggressively pursue the compensation you deserve.
  • Motorcycle Accidents
    Motorcyclists are much more vulnerable to serious injury or death than other motorists involved in vehicle accidents. According to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2010 motorcyclists were thirty times more likely to be killed in an accident and five times more likely to be injured than people riding in vehicles. Not only that, the laws related to motorcycle operation and accidents can be complicated. We understand the law, how to form a strong case, and have obtained successful outcomes for clients involved in motorcycle accidents.
  • Boating and Watercraft Accidents
    We are lucky to enjoy the ocean and its miles of beautiful beaches, the Intercoastal Waterway, rivers, and lakes. Unfortunately, fun on the water can turn tragic in an instant. According to the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission, more than one hundred-fifty accidents occur on the water in North Carolina each year. We will aggressively pursue your case if you fall victim to another’s negligence on the water.
  • Slip-and-Fall Accidents
    Another’s negligence in maintaining premises can lead to severe and permanent injuries. We will fully explore the nature of the premises which led to your accident and assist in your recovery of compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages.
  • Employment Accidents
    Despite the efforts of employers, many workers suffer serious debilitating injuries while on the job. These can result from vehicle collisions on the job, accidents, and falls. We also handle claims related to injuries suffered on construction sites. Not only does a workplace injury mean you may lose your income, you may sustain a permanent injury. We can assist you in navigating the process of obtaining worker’s compensation. We will be there from start to finish so you can focus on your recovery.

Wrongful Death Claims

Losing a loved one as a result of someone’s negligence is devastating. We understand the difficult emotional and financial toll such loss can take on your family. We know that no amount of compensation can heal the emotional wounds of this type of loss. However, we know how to passionately represent you and recover the funds you need and deserve. We will handle every aspect of your case so that you can focus on moving forward with your life, confident that your financial needs will be met. We have successfully obtained judgments for families in our community following the wrongful death of a loved one.
