Our Personal Injury Attorneys Fight for People Injured by the Negligence of Others in North Carolina

No one anticipates becoming, or deserves to be, the victim of another person’s carelessness (e.g., in legal terms, negligence, reckless, or intentional misconduct). Yet, victims are created every day by drunk or distracted drivers, or shoddy medical care. Careless actions can cause victims mental, physical, sensory, and other serious injuries that can permanently damage the quality of life.
The money challenges brought about from this carelessness make worse the physical and emotional hardships victims suffer. If your injury is serious, you may not be able to work for weeks or even months. Hospital bills and medical expenses pile-up. Although a highly experienced Charlotte personal injury attorney, Martha Ramsay cannot give you back the comfort of a pain-free life or the love of a family member who died due to another person’s carelessness. Her legal representation, however, can help you and your family maintain the highest quality of life possible by bringing you just compensation through a civil lawsuit.
For over 20 years, Ms. Ramsay and her staff have been providing sound legal advice, swift analysis of the facts and law that apply to your case, effective negotiation, and winning legal arguments that provide the best possible outcome for our clients. We thoroughly investigate the facts to build a solid legal foundation and identify all possible defendants (the parties who harmed you) to name in your lawsuit. Our Charlotte personal injury law firm has successfully settled or tried numerous personal injury cases. We bring experience and competence to the table, which equips us to handle a wide-range of personal injury cases:

Unlike a personal injury lawsuit, you do not have to prove fault on behalf of your employer to qualify for workers’ compensation benefits. The workers’ compensation system was designed to provide a fast efficient “no fault” system that protects both employers and employees when a workplace injury occurs. If you are injured on the job, you have a right to file a workers’ compensation claim and, in most situations, even if you are partially responsible for your own injury.   While there are certain limitations and common misconceptions about workers’ compensation, at the Ramsay Law Firm, in Charlotte, North Carolina, we are upfront and straightforward with what to expect from workman’s comp. Attorney Martha Ramsay will be an aggressive advocate for you. She has over 20 years of experience in fighting for injured workers in North Carolina. She will clearly explain to you what you can seek compensation for, address your concerns and do everything she can to get a fair recovery.

While it makes sense to an injured employee that there is no need to prove fault to successfully file a workers’ compensation claim, the workers’ compensation system is generally much less generous in terms of compensating injury victims than a personal injury claim. A workers’ compensation claim provides medical coverage for your injuries. Workers’ compensation also compensates you for lost earnings while off-work, and partial- or full-disability based on the percentage of your permanent impairment (damage caused by the injury). There are many types of work-related injuries and illnesses that can occur, such as a sudden traumatic accident, long-term exposure to a hazardous substance or repetitive motion injury (e.g., carpal tunnel).
