What Kinds of Cases Do Our Rocky Mount Lawyers Handle

Our Rocky Mount personal injury attorneys assist people who have suffered severe injuries in car crashes and other accidents caused by others’ carelessness or disregard for safety.

Many disability claims that are initially turned down can be approved on appeal.

  • Personal Injury — Every personal injury accident has factors and circumstances that make it unlike any other. The amount of money available after a serious accident will depend on numerous factors including the seriousness of the injury and insurance policies available to pay compensation. The personal injury lawyers at Younce, Vtipil, & Baznik, P.A., offer experienced legal representation to victims of personal injury accidents in Rocky Mount and throughout Nash and Edgecombe counties. If you have been injured as a result of another’s careless conduct or misconduct, you should speak with a qualified attorney to understand your legal options. A free consultation with Younce, Vtipil, & Baznik, P.A., will enable you to make well-informed decisions about how to proceed.
  • Workers’ Compensation — If you have sustained a serious injury on the job in Rocky Mount, you may be entitled to receive workers’ compensation benefits to cover your medical care and replace part of your lost wages. Workers’ compensation is a type of insurance paid for by employers. Most full- and part-time employees in North Carolina are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. If your employer has denied your claim for workers’ compensation benefits, you may need an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer to help you. Two attorneys at Younce, Vtipil, & Baznik, P.A., have obtained special training in this area of law and are Board Certified Specialists in North Carolina workers’ compensation law. Let us review the details of your workplace injury and discuss how we may help. Our law firm is committed to helping injured workers.
  • Car Accidents — A serious car crash or motorcycle accident can disrupt your life and saddle you with tens of thousands of dollars of medical bills. Your injuries may leave you unable to work or limit the types of work that you can do. If another motorist caused your injuries through careless driving, you may have a right to demand compensation from the at-fault driver’s insurance for your medical expenses and other losses. But you will be at a disadvantage if you try to negotiate with the other driver’s insurance company on your own. It is hard to know what the fair value of your claim should be if you do not have an experienced attorney handling your personal injury claim. Our car accident attorneys can carefully calculate your losses including future medical care and help you pursue maximum compensation for your injuries. Our Rocky Mount injury lawyers are experienced at negotiating with insurance companies and settling claims. Let our attorneys discuss how we can help.
  • Social Security Disability — Most people who apply for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits are denied initially. A disability claim lawyer can review the reason why your application was denied and discuss whether an appeal is appropriate. Your disability must meet the Social Security Administration’s strict definition of disability. Our Rocky Mount SSD lawyers understand the types of medical information that claims examiners are looking for in order to approve a disability claim. We can help you submit the strongest appeal possible and guide you through the disability appeals process.
  • Wrongful Death — If you have lost a close family member due to another’s disregard for safety or willful misconduct, you need an understanding attorney who will take full account of the many ways your loved one’s loss has affected your life. Our attorneys will review the details of your loved one’s death and discuss whether a wrongful death lawsuit may be in order. North Carolina law allows certain immediate family members of a deceased person who died a wrongful death to bring a civil lawsuit. While no amount of money can bring back your loved one, a wrongful death settlement can assist with paying funeral bills and provide some financial security for your family. Let us explain how we can assist.
