I was working with a lawyer friend from Ohio, to handle a settlement with them. He is overloaded with work and told me to try and find someone from NC. He states I have a case against them, and should persue the issue. I need help finding a good lawyer. If you have any suggestions please let me know. Thank you for your time
Is your friend aware of the law of contributory negligence that exists in North Carolina? This can make it very difficult to obtain a settlement in a slip and fall case. This is not to say it cannot be done, but that there must be clear negligence on the part of the store and no negligence at all on the part of the patron. I would recommend you contact a local personal injury attorney by using the "Find a Lawyer" feature on Avvo. I wish you well.
