A personal injury can happen unexpectedly in various ways. Whenever one party’s actions result in any type of harm to another party, whether this includes physical injury, psychological trauma, economic loss, or a combination of damages, the injured party has the right to seek compensation for their losses through a civil suit. Under North Carolina’s personal injury laws, the victim has the right to seek full repayment of all damages they suffered because of the defendant’s actions.
The full cost of a serious injury may not be obvious at first. Medical bills, lost wages, reduced quality of life, physical therapy and rehabilitation, and the way the injury affects the victim’s family — all of this should be taken into account when building a personal injury claim.
If you or a loved one has been injured due to someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, let us help you build the strongest possible claim, so you can get the financial compensation you need to put your life back together. We understand this is a difficult time for you, and we are here to help.

Our founding attorney, William T. Corbett, Jr., has more than 30 years of experience and has tried more than 200 jury trials. You need that kind of experience on your side to secure the maximum available compensation for your injury. Because we have experience on both sides of injury cases, we know how to combat the insurance company’s efforts to reduce the amount of compensation you receive. Our goal is to help you get the full compensation you need to move forward.
We have experience in all the following types of personal injury cases:
Insurance is often a vital first step in the recovery process after a personal injury, especially after motor vehicle accidents in Mooresville. However, even if your claim seems straightforward, you cannot assume that an insurance carrier will offer a fair settlement or even handle your claim in good faith. Before you accept an insurance company’s initial settlement offer, talk to us. We can review your case, assess the full cost of your injury now and in the future, and help you negotiate for the full compensation you deserve.
Filing an insurance claim may yield appropriate compensation for some of your damages, but a serious personal injury is likely to entail damages that quickly outpace available insurance coverage. After your Mooresville personal injury attorney has helped you secure a fair insurance settlement, you can proceed with claiming compensation for any outstanding losses with a personal injury claim against the party responsible for your injury.
Your first legal challenge after any personal injury is correctly identifying the party responsible for your damages. This is easier in some cases than it is in others, and your Mooresville personal injury attorney can offer valuable guidance when it comes to identifying every party liable for your damages. Once you have identified the defendant or defendants responsible for your losses, you must then gather evidence and witness testimony to show how they caused your damages.
Success with your personal injury claim will require clear proof that the defendant directly caused your claimed damages. In other words, you must prove your damages are the results of their negligence or misconduct and not any other cause. Your attorney can not only be a crucial asset for proving liability, but also for establishing the exact extent of all the damages you are legally entitled to claim from the defendant.
The average personal injury plaintiff in Mooresville may be able to identify immediately recognizable damages such as their hospital bills and missing income during their initial recovery period, but they also have the right to seek compensation for future damages resulting from the defendant’s actions as well. For example, you could claim compensation for the future medical care you need to fully recover, and you could also hold the defendant accountable for your lost future earning capacity.
When you choose The Law Office of William T. Corbett, Jr., P.L.L.C., to represent your case, our objective is to help you secure the maximum amount of compensation allowed under North Carolina law. We can carefully review the details of how your personal injury occurred and the extent of harm the defendant caused. We generally aim to settle clients’ cases as swiftly as possible whenever we can, but we are equipped and prepared to defend you in the courtroom should litigation be necessary to resolve your case.
You have a limited time in which to file a personal injury claim in Mooresville. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims is three years, starting on the date the injury occurred. This may sound like enough time but remember that it could take a while to secure all the evidence and documentation you need to prove fault, establish the full extent of your damages, and file your case. The sooner you reach out to an experienced Mooresville personal injury attorney, the more time they have to prepare a compelling case on your behalf.
