- Workers’ Compensation — If you have sustained an injury in the workplace in Morrisville or in the course of performing your job, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. Workers’ compensation is employer-paid insurance that pays for injured employees’ medical care and a portion of lost wages. Most employers in North Carolina are required by law to provide workers’ compensation insurance. An important question that a Morrisville workers’ compensation lawyer can review with you is whether your employment status entitles you to workers’ compensation insurance benefits.
- Motor Vehicle Accidents — If you have been seriously injured in a car crash or motorcycle accident, you may have a mountain of medical bills and little or no income to cover your living expenses and pay your bills. If another motorist’s carelessness, inattention or disregard for safety led to your injuries, then you may be entitled to file a claim against the at-fault driver’s insurance. If you try to negotiate with the other driver’s insurance company on your own, you will be at a disadvantage. Most people have never had a serious injury before and do not have a framework for determining the fair value of their case. A Morrisville car accident lawyer at Younce, Vtipil, & Baznik, P.A., can determine the full value of your losses related to the accident and negotiate with the insurance company for a full settlement. We will take care of the legal issues so that you can focus on your recovery and your family. Let a Morrisville car accident attorney discuss how we can assist you.
- Social Security Disability — The process of seeking Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits can be a frustrating ordeal if you do not have guidance. You may qualify for disability insurance benefits if you have worked enough years in a job covered by Social Security and you have a medically diagnosed disability that complies with the Social Security Administration’s narrow definition of disability. Our Morrisville Social Security Disability lawyers understand the types of medical evidence that claims’ reviewers look for to approve disability benefits. A Morrisville disability benefits lawyer at Younce, Vtipil, & Baznik, P.A., can help you collect evidence, build the strongest case for disability benefits and guide you through the appeals process.
- Family Law — Our attorneys who practice family law focus exclusively on this specialized area of North Carolina law. Our compassionate family law attorneys recognize that you are going through a tough time if you are considering the legal steps of separation and divorce. Many people in the midst of a divorce focus narrowly on one overriding issue such as child support and custody. An experienced Morrisville divorce attorney can help weigh all the legal and financial issues related to ending a marriage and help you stay focused on achieving your long-term goals. We offer trusted guidance based on years of helping people move forward with their lives. Consultations with a Morrisville family law attorney range from $200 to $250 per hour.
- Wrongful Death — If your family has suffered the loss of a loved one, the loss is even harder to take if the accident was caused by someone else’s carelessness, disregard for safety or intentional misconduct. You need legal guidance from a compassionate Morrisville wrongful death lawyer who will listen carefully to you, answer your questions and provide personalized attention. North Carolina law allows certain relatives who are closely related to the person who was killed to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Our Morrisville wrongful death attorneys will analyze the facts surrounding your loved one’s death and review your legal options. Based on the specific facts, we will discuss whether you have a legal right to file a wrongful death claim. The goal of a wrongful death lawsuit is to provide compensation after the loss of a close relative such as a spouse or child. We recognize that no amount of money can replace your loved one, but a settlement can cover unexpected medical bills and funeral expenses and help a family find some closure after a painful loss. We take pride in the one-on-one attention we give clients.
