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.

Success Stories From
Don Strickland’s Clients

  • I would highly recommend Donald Strickland to anyone!

    “Mr. Strickland over saw the review and is still assisting all aspects of my son's death. He helped coordinate a trip to another State along with my brother, (my son's Uncle) and myself. Mr. Strickland lined up a meeting with the defendants Attorney as well our representation in that particular State to go over video and documents. Mr. Strickland's extremely caring nature has made this transitition with the death of my son I little more easier on the family. I would highly recommend Donald Strickland to anyone!”

    Eddie D.

  • He is truly incredible at what he does and I HIGHLY recommend him. I can't thank him or his office enough for what they were able to do for my family.

    “After losing my father in a car accident, I was not looking forward to talking with lawyers. I was under the impression that most lawyers talked a big game, but all of a sudden didn't have time for you after being hired. After 10 minutes of talking to Don, I quickly realized that he was different than what I had been lead to believe about lawyers. He was actually a very caring person who wanted to help my family and had our best interest at heart. It was also clear that he was extremely knowledgeable in his field of work, but he was able to explain things to us without making us feel dumb. After the initial consultation, my little sister and I knew we wouldn't find anyone better, so we hired him. The whole time we worked together, he never hesitated to call or email me back when I had questions about something...and I had a lot of them. He always seemed to make time to help me, even if it was after hours. It didn't take long before it felt like I was talking a friend instead of a lawyer. He is truly incredible at what he does and I HIGHLY recommend him. I can't thank him or his office enough for what they were able to do for my family.”

  • We thank God for bringing Don Strickland along in our time of desperate need. We could not have found any lawyer more skilled in his field!!

    “My sister underwent a very complicated surgery and because of a number of failed medical practices/procedures, it resulted in her becoming a paraplegic. I was outraged at her situation and overwhelmed with the prospects for her future physically, emotionally and financially. When I researched the possibilities of legal recovery for medical malpractice the chances seemed slim or none. The odds seemed stacked against us dealing with big Medical, I was certain there were would be many more physicians willing to testify that it was not malpractice than those supporting our contention. I will always remember our first meeting with Don Strickland. He, having gotten out of a sick bed to meet with us, was exceptionally compassionate, professional and hopeful. He immediately began an exhaustive effort to collect all of relevant medical records which was highly detailed and to us very complicated. In short order he had this information sorted out and a comprehensive strategy developed. He sourced and obtained expert medical authorities to support our claims. When he formally presented our case I was awestruck with how professional, comprehensive and cogent it was. Whatever doubt I had regarding responsibility in our case was swept away through Don's masterful recounting of the facts. Needless to say we were successful! We thank God for bringing Don Strickland along in our time of desperate need. We could not have found any lawyer more skilled in his field!!”

  • We felt truly cared about and became a part of his wonderful family. We can't thank Don and his staff enough for all they did for us.

    “As Canadians we had to really do some serious research for someone we felt could handle our complicated case. Don Strickland came highly recommended. When we met Don we knew instinctively he was someone we could trust. Our instincts proved to be more than founded. Don and his team worked diligantly for us and kept us informed throughout the entire process. We felt truly cared about and became a part of his wonderful family. We can't thank Don and his staff enough for all they did for us. We would happily recommend Don as a professional you can count on and thoroughly trust.”

    Joy S.

  • Their expertise and experience were invaluable and we were extremely pleased with the outcome.

    “This was our first auto accident (and hopefully the last) and we had both pro and con advice on the need to have legal representation. We finally decided to employ this law firm and both my wife and I are very glad we did. Their expertise and experience were invaluable and we were extremely pleased with the outcome. They were a pleasure to work with and we highly recommend them.”
