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:
- Semi-Truck Accidents
- Distracted Driving Collisions
- DUI Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents

We also handle complex cases involving third-party personal injury claims that grow out of workplace accidents. Third-parties are businesses, contractors, or agents, separate from your employer also may be responsible for your injury. Our experience in workers’ compensation and civil personal injury cases is a winning combination for dealing with your workplace injury legal matters.
Many injury victims, including those who suffer injuries in the workplace, attempt to handle their own personal injury or workers’ compensation claim. It makes no difference to an insurance company if you were seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident or a trench collapse accident on a construction site, an insurance adjuster for the other driver or your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance carrier is likely to contact you (even if you’re hospitalized). The insurance adjuster is not your friend. He (or she) knows the value of your case, and wants to talk you into settling your case well-below the dollar value before you can speak with an attorney. Attempting to settle a case on your own with an insurance adjuster is a huge risk. They have more money and legal resources than the average accident victim, and have tactics designed to make settling for less seem like a good thing. The insurance adjuster is only interested in protecting his company’s bottom-line.
Charlotte personal injury lawyer Martha Ramsay understands the litigation and negotiation tactics used by insurance companies and fights to protect your bottom-line. Ms. Ramsay guards your rights when speaking with an insurance company on your behalf. Ms. Ramsay prepares a strong case for trial so that she has an advantage in seeking the best outcome for her clients.
