Personal Injury
Personal injury litigation involves many types of claims. From auto accidents to property damage claims, plaintiffs are able to sue to obtain compensation for their losses. With personal injury claims, attorneys must evaluate success of the claim based on the circumstances of the injury. Attorneys will request accident reports, photos, witness testimony, etc., when determining how to proceed with a lawsuit.
In North Carolina, most civil actions under personal injury have a three-year statute of limitations or period of time in which a person can bring an action for an injury. An injury occurs when a person is physically injured or if a person is deprived of use of their moveable or tangible property. Attorneys are instrumental in settlements or litigation of claims when individual cannot solve claim-related issues on their own.
Workers’ Compensation/On-the-Job Injury
Workers’ compensation law allows persons injured or disabled during the course of their employment to obtain compensation for care and living expenses. There is a division created by state and federal workers' compensation laws. State claims are brought in a designated court in a state as defined by the controlling workers’ compensation law of each state. Federal workers' compensation claims are filed with the Division of Federal Employees’ Compensation.
In North Carolina, workers’ compensations claims are filed with the North Carolina Industrial Commission. Filing a claim with the North Carolina Industrial Commission offers an injured or disabled worker an opportunity to have injury-related expenses paid without pursuing a lawsuit. In North Carolina, injured or disabled workers must file workers’ compensation claims within two years of the alleged injury. If a claim is not filed within two years, the claim is barred by the statute of limitations. A statute of limitation is the period of time in which a person must file a claim against another person or entity. When claims are filed within the two-year period of time, claims are heard by deputy commissioners and commissioners. Appeals from full commission decisions are heard by the North Carolina Court of Appeals.
Real Estate
Real estate law involves ownership, use and enjoyment of real property. Real property includes land and things affixed to the land. Also, real estate attorneys are involved with the purchase of property by completing closings for the purchase of land, advice on transfers of property between person, and leasing or renting of corporate and personal property. Attorneys also aid in the interpretation of local, state and federal laws that govern property-related transactions.
Due to the complexity of most real estate transactions, clients seek the service and guidance of real estate attorneys to ensure that transactions run as smoothly as possible.
Criminal Law
Criminal law involves prosecution of people for committing what the government has deemed a crime. A crime is the commission of an act or omission that is forbidden at common law or by the government. Crimes are classified as misdemeanors or felonies. Misdemeanors warrant sentences of less than one year. Felonies warrant sentences of more than one year. Persons who break laws face incarceration, fines or both.
Criminal law attorneys aid clients in navigating and alleviating the criminal charges against the client. Depending upon the type of charges against a client, attorneys are able to appear for clients. These situations general involve traffic tickets. However, if a client faces more serious charges, the attorney will appear with the client.
