Automobile Accidents

With an infuriating number of motorists talking and texting while behind the wheel, our streets and highways in the State Of North Carolina have never been more dangerous. It's a sad reality we are forced to confront in the age of smartphones and tablets. And all of those distracted drivers are leading to an increase in both the number of overall accidents and the number of fatal crashes.

If you have been injured in an automobile accident anywhere in Alexander County, we encourage you to call Harbinson, Brzykcy & Corbett to find out if you have grounds to file a lawsuit against the negligent party.

In the event that the driver who caused the mishap in which you were hurt acted in a reckless manner, we will pursue compensation on your behalf for the costs of your pain and suffering, property damage, lost wages, medical bills, and rehabilitative care.

The attorneys at our firm have more than fifty years of experience championing the rights of injured residents all throughout North Carolina. We are trusted, knowledgeable, and reliable advocates for justice when it comes to holding other motorists and their insurance companies responsible for damages inflicted on our clients.

It is important to keep in mind that spouses of automobile accident victims are also entitled to recover monetary awards for what's known as "loss of consortium" (spousal care and companionship). The ability of a spouse to prevail in court is all predicated on the severity of the victim's injuries and the ultimate effect those injuries have on their normal day-to-day activities.

With an experienced personal injury attorney from Harbinson, Brzykcy & Corbett on your side after an automobile accident, you'll be able to focus on what is of paramount importance -- your recovery. Our firm accepts automobile accident cases on a contigency basis, which means you will never pay us any money, either as a retainer or for the expenses related to the building of your case. We only get paid from automobile accident cases if our client receives a financial award.

You can therefore be assured that we only take on meritorious cases. If we represent you in an automobile accident case, you will have the peace of mind knowing we believe there is a strong likelihood you will receive compensation from the negligent party.

Once you are represented by an attorney from HBC, we will handle every aspect of your case. We will speak to all of the insurance adjusters and their lawyers, who almost certainly would otherwise try locking you into a story in which you assume some, if not all, of the culpability for the accident. And that would all but eliminate your chances at a monetary award.

Of course, insurance companies are renown for working to ensure they pay out as little as possible when their clients are at-fault in automobile accidents. Our firm knows all of their tactics and will never let one of clients get swindled out of compensation that is rightfully owed them.

We therefore encourage you to seek medical care right away after any accident, even if you feel fine. Head and brain trauma may not seem apparent right away but you could start to feel dizzy or light-headed the morning after an accident. It would be foolhardy not to at least have an examination immediately after any collision.

Once you have sought the appropriate treatment, we encourage you to call Harbinson, Brzykcy & Corbett so we are able to properly advise you on what needs to be done next. You never want to admit fault after an accident, especially to any law enforcement or insurance personnel, who are duty-bound to make a record of your statements, and those words could come back to doom your personal injury case, either in court or during a pre-trial deposition.

North Carolina maintains a provision called "contributory negligence," which could prevent any kind of recovery in an automobile accident if it can be proven that the plaintiff was even responsible for the incident in the most seemingly insignificant way. This is merely one of the potential risks of either trying to bring an auto accident case on your own -- or perhaps even worse, hiring the wrong law firm to represent you.

Our office is dedicated, thorough, cautious, and relentless when it comes to holding negligent motorists responsible for the damages they inflict on our clients. We never sugarcoat expectations and we never accept cases that are not supported by case law and statute.

We take enormous pride in the compassionate representation that has become a hallmark of our firm since our founding in Taylorsville two generations ago. If you or a loved one has been involved in a serious auto accident, please call us today.

Wrongful Death
The lawyers at Harbinson, Brzykcy & Corbett understand that moving forward after the sudden and unexpected death of a loved one is never easy. That is especially true if the passing of your relative or friend occurred due to the willful negligence, recklessness, or carelessness of another person, business, or entity. Filing a civil lawsuit against the party responsible for the death of your parent, spouse, grandparent, sibling, or child can be a terribly anguishing process. Nonetheless, for many survivors, it is a necessary measure. Many grieving relatives find closure in these types of civil lawsuits as they know their loved one would want the party responsible for their death to be held accountable in a court of law. Others desperately need the money that a wrongful death lawsuit provides, as the decedent may have been their only source of financial support. If you have lost a loved one because of the negligent actions of a third-party, we encourage you to call Harbinson, Brzykcy & Corbett in the most expeditious manner possible so we may begin to collect evidence and analyze the facts of your case.

Personal Injury
Suffering any permanent or long-term injury can be difficult enough. When the injury is caused by the negligence of a careless third-party, the ordeal can quickly become downright infuriating. Victims of catastophic automobile accidents and slip-and-falls, for example, almost always will never experience the same quality of life they previously enjoyed. Often times, these victims suffer great financial hardship, as they miss work while recovering and undergoing physical therapy. And that is to say nothing of the certain pain and suffering that come with any debilitating injury. Personal injury is a fairly broad expression that covers a wide range of accidents such as: amusement park mishaps, automobile crashes, airplane mishaps, cruise ship and other boating accidents, defective product liability, dog bites, pedestrian accidents, slip-and-falls, truck accidents, train accidents, and unfortunately, wrongful death. If you (or an immediate family member) were injured in any of the aforementioned types of accidents anywhere in Alexander County, it is imperative to call a compassionate and qualified attorney to best represent your interests.
