How Can an Injury Attorney in Durham Help Me?

After being involved in an accident, our team understands that negotiating with insurance companies is the last thing that you want to be responsible for. When you are hurt as a result of negligence, you are required to file a personal injury claim for your losses. Losses are calculated based on economic and non-economic damages, and insurance companies will do whatever it takes to minimize the amount that you recover from your claim. In order to achieve the amount that you deserve, our team can help you prove the following elements of negligence to ensure a just recovery for your injury claim:

Our Durham personal injury attorney can help you prove that the negligent party of an accident:

  • Owed you a “duty of care”. This will prove that there was a responsibility to keep you from harm, and that this was not met.
  • Was in the wrong by failing to act responsibly in the event leading up to your accident.
  • Actions were a direct cause of your injuries, pain, and suffering.
  • Is directly liable for this pain, which proves that the responsibility for damages rests on the insurance companies’ shoulders.

Insurance companies will require photographs, witness statements, medical records and several other documents in order to fulfill your injury claim. When you hire our personal injury attorney in Durham, you will receive dedicated defense against these companies, and aggressive support to help you achieve maximum compensation.

  • If you choose Don Strickland to represent you I guarantee you he will fight to win and not hold anything back!

    “I recommend Don Strickland to anyone who has a claim for personal injury or deceitful trade practices claim. I was in an automobile accident in Raleigh, NC that caused me to miss work for about 10 months. The driver of the other vehicle was at fault, but making the case because of North Carolina's contributory negligence law was no easy task. This case was not a typical accident where someone received a ticket and the case was solved. A ticket was giving to the other driver stating he was at fault but somehow the ticket got dismissed. Don uncovered the ticket was wrongfully dismissed under false pretenses. When we took the case to trial now we have two cases a personal injury case against the driver and a deceitful trade practices claim against the insurance company. Don and his team traveled to New Jersey, New York and Georgia to interview several doctors and employees of the insurance company. I was examined by countless doctors, surgeons, and physical therapist. Don's detective work and systematic processes was absolutely vital to the outcome of my case, without it we would not have won both cases. The facts of the case where thoroughly conveyed to the judge and jury. I have worked with many attorneys but none with the expertise, organization and compassion as Don Strickland. My brother and his wife where in a car accident in Charlotte last year and Don Strickland is now their attorney. If you choose Don Strickland to represent you I guarantee you he will fight to win and not hold anything back!”
