4 Reasons You May Need Our Durham Law Firm

Whether it’s to write a will or close on a house, at some point in their life, most people retain the services of a lawyer. Statistics posted on Quora state that less than 50 percent of people in criminal court represent themselves – and, of those that do, very few win their case.

While you may not be in criminal court, it’s equally important to have a lawyer represent you in personal injury, workers’ compensation or medical malpractice suits. Your quality of life and financial future could be at stake, so let a local Durham law firm help ensure that you receive the best outcome.

Here are four reasons you may retain the services of a law firm:

Car Accident Injuries

If you’ve been injured in a car accident, you’d like to think either your insurance company or the other driver’s insurance company will pay for your car repairs or a replacement vehicle, your medical bills, and even compensate you for time lost at work.

But in most cases, the insurance company will fight your claims; the insurance company doesn’t want to pay you the money you deserve.

A Durham law firm can determine liability to find out which insurance company should pay, and determine a fair amount to be paid for medical bills, lost wages, and other damages, including pain and suffering.

The insurance companies don’t want to see accident victims hire a lawyer, but auto accident claims are often too difficult for the victim to file themselves.

On-the-Job Injury

If you’ve been injured at work, you could be eligible to workers’ compensation benefits. Workers’ compensation laws vary by state, which is why it’s important to hire a Durham law firm to help you file paperwork and make a strong case for the compensation you deserve.

Discrimination, Harassment, or Wrongful Termination

Discrimination, harassment or wrongful termination on the job can be difficult to prove. It may come down to your word against your employer’s, and you could be fighting a well-educated human resources department.
If you feel you’ve been treated wrongly in the workplace, the Durham law firm of Merritt, Webb, Wilson & Caruso, PLLC can help.

Medical Malpractice Injuries or Wrongful Death

If you’ve been injured by the action or negligence of a medical professional, or if you’ve suffered the death of a loved one due to medical malpractice, a lawyer can help. Facing a medical malpractice case is emotionally stressful, especially at a time when you may be sick, incapacitated or grieving.

Your lawyer can approach your case with an analytical mind, to see the facts and prove that there was medical wrongdoing, that the doctors made a mistake or misdiagnosis, or that their action or inaction caused you harm.

A medical malpractice suit can give you the money you need to continue living in spite of your injuries or grief. But you don’t want to take on the medical establishment and face the physician’s lawyers yourself, you can let Merritt Webb help you get the funds you deserve to maintain your lifestyle following illness, injury, or the death of a loved one.

Still Not Sure If You Need a Durham Law Firm?

If you’ve been in an accident, are involved in a workers’ compensation case, are the victim of medical malpractice or believe you’ve been treated improperly at work or even fired for the wrong reason, it may not be wise to represent yourself in court.

The opposing side will have lawyers with experience in these specific types of cases. Why shouldn’t you?

Call Merritt Webb for a consultation and you’ll quickly see how we can help, and why you shouldn’t face a court case alone.
