Personal Injury Lawyers in North Carolina

Put the Right Attorneys in Your Corner

After suffering from an unexpected injury, you have an important decision to make: Who can you entrust with your legal rights? There seem to be hundreds of lawyers out there saying they can represent you. How do you know you're hiring the right personal injury lawyer? At Hartsoe & Associates, our experienced Winston-Salem personal injury attorneys recommend you ask three important questions.

Get the justice and peace of mind you deserve. Schedule a free consultation by calling (336) 390-4774.

1. How much experience do they have in this particular type of case?

A motorcycle accident case involves very different considerations compared to a car accident case. Tractor-trailer crash cases can be extremely complicated due to different ownership of the truck, trailer, cargo, etc.

Our trusted lawyers at Hartsoe & Associates have 20-plus years of personal injury experience in all kinds of cases. We understand the nuances of each type of case, and we are well-versed in the North Carolina court system. What's more, our legal team includes a former insurance adjuster. This means we understand how the other side will approach your case and we can use that knowledge to help you achieve a better outcome.

2. Will the attorney actually go to trial?

More and more cases settle prior to trial through mediation. But what if the other side is unreasonable? If the insurance company knows your lawyer has a reputation for settling everything and does not go to trial, it may be less willing to offer fair reimbursement in settlement.

Our firm will make every effort to present your case in its best light for settlement, but we are not afraid to take your case to trial if that makes more sense. If you are talking to other attorneys, ask if they will be the ones taking your case to trial.

3. Does the firm handle hundreds of cases?

Many of the folks advertising on TV handle hundreds of cases. At first glance, this may seem like a good thing, but actually it's not. These firms typically use paralegals to manage their cases instead of attorneys. Just how much personal service and attention do you think you will receive while competing with hundreds of other clients?

At Hartsoe & Associates, we are selective in the cases we handle, and we strive to never overextend ourselves with too many cases. Our lawyers represent honest, hardworking people who need our help after suffering injuries. We love what we do, and we love getting to know our clients. If we take your case, it's because we believe in you, and we believe it's well worth it to invest the time and effort to get the positive results you deserve.

Why It's Important to Get Legal Help Right Away

If you sign a release before reviewing your claim with an experienced personal injury lawyer, you may lose your legal right to seek additional compensation. You may think you are going to be fine, but many injuries can take days or weeks to develop or show symptoms – especially head injuries.

Hartsoe & Associates provides aggressive and practical legal representation for people injured in any number of ways:

  • Car accidents and semi-truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Bicycle and pedestrian accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Prescription drug errors
  • Dangerous consumer products

We can use advanced technology to collect the facts and tell your story, both in settlement discussions and at trial. If your case calls for it, we have access to a nationwide network and can use computer simulations to show the facts. We also have "day in the life" videos to show an insurance company or jury just how much your injuries have affected your life, and can even have your X-rays computer-enhanced to dramatically demonstrate your injuries.

We Know You Did Not Get Hurt Just to Make Money

No amount of money is worth what you are going through. Unfortunately, money is all the system has to offer. The point is that the person at fault should take responsibility and do the only thing that can be done — making sure the financial burdens of your injuries, both now and in the future, don't fall on you.

No Fee Unless We Win

We handle all personal injury cases on a contingency-fee basis, meaning we take attorney fees as a percentage of your eventual settlement or jury award. We agree on the percentage in advance, and if we are not successful on your behalf, we don't get paid.

  • I cannot express in words how confident you will feel by having Tara in charge of your case

    “Tara Kay Johnson did an awesome job! If you're like me, you didn't think something like this would happen to you, but there you are at that moment in your life with a lot of questions and very few answers... doubt and emotion starts to take over, but fear not. As with many folks who have to go through this unfortunate event in your life, you want the strongest and most well-respected representation you can find. That is exactly what I received. Tara will listen to your concerns and stand up for you, while at the same time she will also recommend the absolute best course of action. I cannot express in words how confident you will feel by having Tara in charge of your case. During my case, there was not a single moment where I felt vulnerable or a moment where I wondered what the outcome would be. Tara and her very well-educated staff were with me every step of the way. Communication and support was excellent throughout the entire process. The bottom line is: If you or someone you know is heading down the tough road to divorce, then you need the BEST guide you can find, and that is Tara Kay Johnson.”
