Kirby & Holt - North Carolina Work Accident Attorneys
If you or your spouse has suffered a serious workplace injury from dangerous property conditions, defective equipment or machinery, chemical exposure, or even violence in the workplace, contact the North Carolina work accident lawyers at Kirby & Holt in Raleigh.
Our workplace injury attorneys won the largest work place violence jury verdict in United States history in a case involving multiple murders at the workplace in Asheville. We also represent victims of burns, explosions, electrocution, construction equipment accidents, and other causes.
While North Carolina law usually won't allow employees to sue their own employer in a job accident case, a third party might be responsible for a worker’s injuries. The party responsible might be an equipment manufacturer, a supplier, an independent contractor, or even an employment agency for negligent screening or hiring, especially in a workplace violence situation.
The workplace injury attorneys of Kirby & Holt do not handle worker's compensation claims, but we can work closely with your worker's comp attorney to make sure that your income and immediate medical expenses are protected while we investigate a personal injury or wrongful death claim against one or more third-party defendants. The damages claim we present for injured workers can cover such losses as pain and suffering, retraining, loss of quality of life, and other less tangible components of an injury that worker's comp - important as it is in the immediate aftermath of a construction or industrial injury - does not cover.
