Personal Injury Cases
Injured people who wish to push for a quick, substandard settlement may not be the best fit for our law firm. We educate our clients on the need to exercise the necessary patience to pursue justice through to a maximum settlement or verdict.
Quality Representation Takes Time and Patience
We take this approach for very good reasons. For instance, soft tissue injuries suffered in accidents are progressive. Even excellent doctors do not know how much pain and loss of function will result from a neck or back injury until months have gone. Accepting a settlement too quickly may mean that the case will be over long before the injured person knows how serious an injury really is.
Learn how Lutzel, Broadway & Associates will work to maximize your settlement or verdict after a serious traffic accident or premises accident. Contact the law firm to schedule an initial consultation regarding personal injury claims and any of the following types of accidents or injuries:
Car Accidents: From the time we accept your car accident or workplace injury case, we will begin right away gathering crucial evidence to help build a strong case:
- Witness statements
- Physical evidence including photos, broken signs or even the wrecked car
- Observations of road conditions, weather and seasonal characteristics (tree foliage, sun glare or icy conditions, for example)
Truck Accidents: In 18 years as a personal injury attorney, Mr. Lutzel has learned how to maximize a truck driving victim's compensation. He understands common challenges in truck accident cases.
Motorcycle Accidents: An experienced motorcycle accident attorney is well aware of the risks of operating a motorcycle — and the rights of motorcycle riders on the road. We happen to be experienced motorcycle riders as well as motorcycle accident lawyers.
Boating Accidents: A significant advantage that we have to offer our clients who have been injured in boating accidents in North Carolina is our in-depth knowledge of Lake Norman and other local waterways.
Premises Liability: Even a relatively minor injury may result in time lost from work and other costs. Let us do the work of sorting out liability and insurance issues. Our lawyers are experienced at maximizing the compensation that accident victims recover in premises liability cases.
Construction Accidents: We do not believe in pat answers, shortcuts or simple solutions. Construction site explosions and other types of accidents can be complicated by a variety of factors.
Fractures: Breaking a bone is a painful and debilitating experience that can take an arm, leg or collarbone out of commission for quite some time. Treatment may include simple casting or high-risk internal fixation surgery with permanent insertion of pins. Emergency room care, setting of the bone, and long-term rehabilitation and therapy all result in high medical bills.
Spinal Cord Injuries: Attorney Richard Lutzel is noted for patient, meticulous investigation and analysis of catastrophic injury cases. It normally requires months or even a year to obtain a clear picture of a spinal cord injury victim's long-term prospects.
Brain Injuries: If you or your loved one who suffered a brain injury is unable to come to our law office, we are glad to visit you at home or at your hospital including any of the following:
- Chapel Hill
- North Carolina Medical Center
- Presbyterian Health Care
- Northeast Medical Center
Bicycle and Pedestrian Accidents: Whether you were hit by a car speeding through an intersection or thrown from your bike when someone opened a door without looking, we can help you understand your legal options.
Dog Bites: Children are often victims in animal attacks. Whether the victim is a child, a beautiful young woman or a man or woman of any age, dog bites may result in serious medical problems.
Drunk Driving Accidents: As in many areas of personal injury law, issues of timing can be critical in a drunken driving accident case. Settlements may be affected by information that is brought forth, and when.
Drunk Boating Accidents: Operating a motorized boat while under the influence of alcohol is just as risky and just as illegal as driving a car while drunk.
Swimming Accidents: Often an investigation makes it clear that the property owner was negligent. Even if there is no overt negligence, the owner may be responsible for maintaining an "attractive nuisance" — where children are able to climb over the fence surrounding a home swimming pool.
Wrongful Death: Rehashing and reliving the fatal injury can be very difficult for survivors. Yet the relief and closure that a successful wrongful death claim or lawsuit can bring is more than helpful -- in many cases, a family is saved from financial ruin.
