- Personal Injury — Each personal injury accident has a set of facts that makes it unlike any other. The amount of money available to an accident victim who has sustained a serious injury will depend on a range of factors including the insurance policies available to pay compensation and the severity of the injuries. The Garner injury attorneys at Younce, Vtipil, Baznik & Banks, P.A., offer attentive legal service to accident victims in Wake County and throughout the Triangle. If you have been injured by someone else’s negligence, you should speak with an experienced Garner injury lawyer to get a clear understanding of whether you have a personal injury claim. A consultation with an attorney at Younce, Vtipil, Baznik & Banks, P.A., will help you understand your legal options and make better decisions about how to move forward.
- Motor Vehicle Accidents — A serious car crash can throw your life into chaos and leave you with a mountain of medical bills and no steady income to pay your bills if you cannot work. If another motorist’s inattention or reckless driving caused your injuries, you may be entitled to file a claim against the at-fault driver’s insurance to cover your medical expenses and other losses. But you will find yourself at a real disadvantage if you try to negotiate with the other driver’s insurance company on your own. If you do not have experience preparing injury claims, then you may have difficulty determining the fair value of your claim, including future losses if you will have ongoing medical expenses. Insurance companies try to pay as little as possible to settle claims. Our Garner injury lawyers are skilled at negotiating claims. We will deal with the insurance company on your behalf so you focus on your recovery. Let our Garner accident attorneys discuss how we can help you.
- Social Security Disability — If you have been turned down after applying for disability benefits, you should not give up without talking to a knowledgeable SSD attorney. The truth is that the majority of people who apply for Social Security Disability benefits get initial rejection letters, including many people with valid claims—people just like you. Our Garner SSD attorneys know the types of medical and employment information that claims reviewers are looking for to grant disability benefits. If you have received a denial notice, we can help you gather work history and medical records and obtain a second medical opinion if necessary to present the strongest claim for benefits. You may be entitled to disability benefits if you have worked and contributed to the Social Security system for enough years and you have a disability that prevents you from gainful employment. Your disability must meet the Social Security Administration’s strict definition of disability to qualify.
- Family Law — Our Garner family law attorneys focus exclusively on this area of North Carolina law. Based on our many years of experience, our Garner divorce attorneys help clients consider all financial and legal aspects of divorce and the end of a marriage. Our domestic law attorneys assist Garner clients with matters including separation agreements, divorce, spousal support, child custody and other issues. We understand that you are going through an emotionally turbulent time and you need steadfast legal guidance to help you move to a better place in your life. Consultations with our Garner family law attorneys range from $200 to $250 per hour.
- Wrongful Death — If you have had a loved one fatally injured in an accident due to another’s carelessness or negligence, you need a compassionate Garner attorney who will take the time to understand the many ways your loved one’s death has affected your life. Our wrongful death attorneys will carefully review the facts surrounding your family member’s death and explain whether a wrongful death lawsuit may be an appropriate option for your family. Compensation obtained through a wrongful death lawsuit can provide financial security and assistance for paying unexpected medical bills and funeral expenses. North Carolina law permits certain close relatives of the victim of a fatal accident to bring a wrongful death lawsuit.

Are you worried that your employer may be one of those businesses not required by North Carolina to provide carry workers’ compensation?

Many workers who experience on-the-job injuries receive rejection letters when they initially seek workers’ compensation benefits. Among the reasons cited by claims administrators for denying workers’ compensation claims are lack of timely notification of the injury, lack of causation, and the workers’ employment status.
There are multiple steps to appeal a denied workers’ comp claim. It can be overwhelming if you try to pursue an appeal on your own. You will need to gather and present sufficient medical evidence to show your injury occurred on the job. You will need to keep track of filing deadlines and appear before a judge who hears appeals.
