Review W. Searson

About Me

Catastrophic Injury and Death Cases


My practice is focused on the representation of individuals and families seriously injured or killed due to medical malpractice (physician, hospital and nursing home negligence), car and truck collisions, defective and harmful products, and other negligent, careless and wrongful conduct. I also handle cases arising from injuries and death sustained on the job or in the work place.


Experience


I have successfully represented clients in countless jury trials, hearings before agencies and commissions, and in arbitrations and in mediated settlement conferences. I routinely represent clients throughout Western North Carolina and across the state.
