We Bring More Than 30 Years Of Experience To Injury Cases
An injury accident can change your life in an instant. When you or a loved one is injured due to someone else’s negligence, you should not have to suffer financially as well as physically. At the law office of Lucas & Davis, P.A., in Kenly, we work to maximize the amount our clients recover in personal injury lawsuits. We have served residents throughout Eastern North Carolina for more than 30 years.
You may wonder why a lawyer is necessary when you are injured in an accident that is caused by someone else. The truth is, insurance companies, like every other business, are most concerned about their bottom line. They work every angle to minimize the amount they payout and even seek to deny legitimate claims.
All injury cases are taken on a contingency fee basis, which means we only collect if we help you collect. Call 919-371-4325 to schedule a meeting.
We understand the tactics that these companies and their lawyers use, and we know how to combat them. That is why it is always wise to speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer like Leon A. Lucas before you accept any offer from an insurance provider or, frankly, before you even speak with them.
What You Can Recover
North Carolina law allows individuals to recover special damages and general damages in personal injury claims. Special damages are the quantifiable losses that result from an accident. These include all current and future medical costs, lost wages and any personal expenses that directly result from the accident such as transportation to doctor appointments.
General damages are not as easily quantified, and they are not awarded in all injury cases. These include compensation for pain and suffering, loss of consortium and emotional distress.
Here again, it is critical to work with an experienced personal injury attorney who understands North Carolina laws and knows how to maximize the amount you recover.
How We Help Our Injury Clients
We review every aspect of an accident, often gathering facts well beyond those in a police report in order to strengthen our clients’ cases. We represent individuals who are injured in a wide range of accidents, including:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Boating accidents
- Swimming pool accidents
- Slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accidents
- Other premises liability accidents
- Defective products
- Wrongful death
We also help our clients obtain the medical care they need. Doing so – and following doctors’ orders precisely – is important to keeping your injury claim on track. If your injuries are serious enough to require long-term care, we will work with lifetime-care specialists who will help provide accurate estimates of the full cost of your care.
Everything Starts With An Initial Consultation
The most important step after an injury accident is to meet with an attorney as soon as possible. We welcome the opportunity to review the facts of your case and provide a candid assessment of what you can expect. If your injuries limit your mobility, we will come to you. We represent clients across Johnston County and throughout Eastern North Carolina.
