What Types of Cases Do Our Cary Lawyers Take?
Our attorneys represent people who have sustained serious and life-changing injuries in car crashes and other types of accidents caused by others’ disregard for safety. Our law firm also assists Cary residents who have a medically diagnosed disability who need help with Social Security Disability (SSD) benefit claims. Most applications for SSD benefits are initially denied, but many can be approved on appeal. Our family law attorneys stand beside clients through the traumatic process of dissolving a marriage, resolving child custody issues and dealing with an array of domestic law matters.
- Personal Injury — Each personal injury accident has a set of facts that makes it unique. The amount of compensation available to an individual who has sustained a personal injury will depend on a variety of factors including the severity of the injury and the limits of the insurance policies available to pay compensation. The personal injury attorneys at Younce, Vtipil, Baznik & Banks, P.A. provide attentive representation to accident victims in Cary and across the Triangle. If you have been harmed as a result of someone else’s carelessness or disregard for safety, you should talk with a qualified lawyer to gain an understanding of your legal options. A no obligation consultation with Younce, Vtipil, Baznik & Banks, P.A. will help you make better informed decisions about how to proceed.
- Workers’ Compensation — If you have sustained an injury in a workplace accident in Cary or a construction accident in Cary, you may have a right to workers’ compensation benefits to pay your medical bills and replace part of your lost income. Workers’ compensation is an employer-paid insurance that provides benefits to injured full- and part-time employees. If your company is disputing your employment status or denying your right to benefits, you may need a strong attorney to stand up for you. Younce, Vtipil, Baznik & Banks, P.A., has two attorneys who have special training in workers’ compensation and are Board Certified Specialists in Workers’ Compensation Law. Let us review the details of your accident at no cost and explain how we may help. We are dedicated to helping injured workers.
- Motor Vehicle Accidents — A serious car accident can turn your life upside down and leave you with thousands of dollars of medical bills and reduced income to meet your expenses, if you are unable to work. If another driver’s careless driving caused your injuries, you may have a legal right to demand compensation from the at-fault driver to cover your medical expenses and other losses. But you will put yourself at a disadvantage if you try to settle with the other driver’s insurance company on your own. It is difficult to know the value of a claim (including your future losses) if you do not have experience handling injury claims. Insurance companies try to pad their profits by paying as little as possible to settle claims. They have experienced adjusters who negotiate claims on a daily basis. Our Cary car accident lawyers are skilled at settling claims. We can negotiate on your behalf with the insurance company while you focus on your recovery. Let our accident attorneys explain how we can assist you.
- Social Security Disability — If you have applied for Social Security Disability and have been turned down, you are not alone. Most applicants with valid Social Security Disability benefit claims initially receive rejection letters. Our Cary SSD attorneys understand the types of information that claims reviewers are seeking in order to approve disability benefits requests. If you have received an SSD denial notice, we can help you collect the medical documents and work history records to prepare the strongest claim and guide you through the appeals process. You may qualify for disability benefits if you have worked enough years and you have a recognized disability that keeps you from doing work. The disability must meet the Social Security Administration’s definition of disability.
- Family Law — Our family law attorneys focus their full practice on this complicated area of North Carolina law. Our family law attorneys help Cary clients with matters such as separation agreements, divorce, child custody and other domestic law issues. Based on many years of experience, our Cary divorce attorneys will help you take into consideration all the legal and financial aspects related to ending a marriage. We recognize that you are going through a turbulent time and you need steadfast guidance to help you work through the transition to a better place in your life. Consultations with our family law attorneys range from $200 to $250 per hour.
- Wrongful Death — If you have had a loved one killed in an accident due to another’s negligence, you need a compassionate attorney who will take the time to understand the many ways your loved one’s loss has affected your life. Our Cary wrongful death attorneys will review the details of your family member’s death and explain your legal options and whether a wrongful death lawsuit may be appropriate. Compensation obtained through a wrongful death claim can provide a family with financial security and assistance paying medical bills and funeral expenses. North Carolina law allows certain close relatives to the accident victim who died to bring a wrongful death lawsuit.
