Why Should I Hire an Attorney for My DWI Personal Injury Case?

Personal injury lawsuits can be incredibly complicated. Potential plaintiffs must speak to a skilled personal injury attorney as soon as possible after the car accident. At our law firm, we typically take on car accident cases on a contingency basis. Our clients do not need to pay expenses upfront. Our firm takes a percentage of the damage awards of our clients at the end of the trial. Thus, our clients typically do not need to pay upfront for the expense of the personal injury trial. In most cases, our clients do not pay unless we win their case.

It is also essential that plaintiffs develop a trial strategy as soon as possible after the drunk driving car accident occurs. In many instances, settling out of court may be an advantageous option. Our attorneys have experience creating an effective negotiation strategy with the defendant. If a favorable settlement looks promising, we fight hard to agree with the defense. Avoiding a settlement can save time and money. Our clients can access their compensation quickly and begin paying their bills and securing their future. If a favorable settlement is not an option, then our experienced trial attorneys can represent your interests throughout your trial.

We Represent Our Clients Assertively and Effectively

Our attorneys understand how challenging recovering for your injuries can become. When we meet with our clients, we empathetically listen to all of the facts of their case. After taking careful notes, we conduct a thorough investigation into their incident.

We Fight Assertively on Behalf of Our Clients for Compensation

We understand how difficult it is to recover from a drunk driving accident.

We fight assertively for our personal injury clients to receive compensation for their medical bills, property damage, lost wages, and pain and suffering. If the drunk driving defendant acted with willful and wanton conduct, we attempt to persuade the court to award punitive damages.

Resonable expectations were set and the results far exceeded them. I was well informed, prepared and supported by Matt and his team. They provided comfort and confidence, as well as a great outcome. I can't possibly describe how grateful I truly am for what they have done for me. Matt was recommended to be by another trusted individual and I believe that was a blessing. Anthony

I can't say enough great things about Matthew Arnold and his team. I had a very complicated, high-conflict case which took a lot of time and effort on everyone's part, and I feel like my case was given the time and attention it required. Matt Arnold is a great attorney, and I would go as far as saying one of the best in Charlotte, if not the best. Bree is also amazing. Amber
