Holding Negligent People And Businesses Accountable
Many accident victims never pursue legal action. They may not know their rights or who to sue. They may be reluctant to bring a formal claim, especially if the at-fault party is a local business or member of their community.
At the Law Offices of L. T. Baker, P.A., we have resolved a wide range of personal injury cases, including negligence claims that don’t fit neatly into any category. Luke Baker is an experienced trial lawyer who can determine if you have grounds for legal action and, if so, pursue your fair compensation. We take cases in Concord, in Asheville and throughout western North Carolina.
Find out if you have a case at no upfront cost to you. We collect attorney fees only if we recover monetary damages for you. Schedule a free consultation by calling 866-433-1991.
Is Another Party Responsible For Your Injuries?
We have obtained good recoveries for clients in general negligence claims. The negligent party may be a homeowner or another individual, a local business or a major corporation, a nonprofit entity or a government body. We explore all theories of liability and all sources of insurance coverage to cover our clients’ injuries and losses.
Negligence can refer to actions or inaction. Our team works to establish that the party had a legal duty to you under North Carolina law and that their negligence (or gross negligence) was the proximate cause of the injuries.
Many general negligence claims involve injuries to children, as kids are more vulnerable to dangers that an adult might reasonably avoid. The Law Offices of L. T. Baker, P.A., was retained in a case in which a church-sponsored Easter egg hunt tragically resulted in a child’s traumatic brain injury. We obtained a settlement for the family after demonstrating that the accident would not have happened but for the negligence of the event organizers.
Other examples of what might merit a negligence cause of action:
- Failure to supervise children at a school or day care
- Broken playground equipment
- An ATV accident on a guided tour
- A golf cart accident
- A drowning at a public beach or backyard swimming pool
- Injuries inflicted by overzealous security staff
- A sexual assault due to inadequate security
- Spectator injuries at a sporting event
- Contact with a live power line
The Bottom Line Is Compensation For Your Injuries
Most negligence claims are covered by homeowners’ insurance, commercial liability insurance or other policies. If you are dealing with medical bills, future surgery or months off the job, you need to take care of your health and your family. Let us deal with the legal issues and insurance companies.
Attorney Baker and his team worked hard on my case after I was in a car accident and I was very pleased with the outcome. I tried to handle everything myself, but I just didn’t have the know-how to deal with insurance companies. Thank you Attorney Baker! ROCHELLE
