Serious consequences can result from a traffic accident, including severe injuries, medical treatment, medical bills, and lost wages due to an inability to work, and pain and suffering for both you and your loved ones. It is critical that you call a Greensboro personal injury attorney immediately following your accident so you can be aware of your rights as a victim. The call, as well as the consultation, is free.
The attorneys and staff in our Greensboro office are both compassionate and thorough when handling your personal injury case. At Auger & Auger, we understand the hardships that you and your loved ones are enduring, and that is why we will fight for the damages you are entitled to. When you call Auger & Auger for your free consultation, you will speak with one of our attorneys, not a legal assistant, investigator or so-called “sign-up specialist.” Once retained, our team of experienced attorneys will investigate your accident and work on your behalf to ensure you receive the settlement you deserve. Types of accidents clients retain us for include:
Greensboro could not function properly if we did not have the hardworking men and women performing the dangerous jobs that are essential for our city to run. This includes workers who operate a motor vehicle as part of their job duties. If you are injured while on the job, you are entitled to certain rights and damages. Under North Carolina law, an employer must compensate an employee who was injured on the job so the employee can pay medical bills while maintaining their wage if the employee cannot work.
However, not all employers and insurers protect the rights of the injured party. Sometimes, claims are unjustifiably denied or postponed which can cause confusion and undue hardship for the victim. Because filing a claim can be complicated, it is essential that you contact a Greensboro workers’ compensation lawyer immediately after your accident. Auger & Auger has represented injured workers for over 20 years and the firm is committed to ensuring your rights.
We love our dogs, but some pets can become dangerously aggressive. Guilford County mandates that, in incorporated areas and homes on less than an acre of property, all dogs must be leashed or contained within a fence, and if an invisible fence, a sign must be permanently erected indicating that such invisible fencing exists. However, for dogs kept at homes on more than one acre or in unincorporated areas, the law does not require the dog to be kept within a fence or under physical control, but does impart a duty on the dog owner to prevent the dog from becoming a nuisance.
Notwithstanding these laws, we know that some dog owners are not very responsible when it comes to restraining their pet. Dog bites can cause serious injury, especially when a child is involved. North Carolina dog bite laws make proving a dog bite case tricky, so if you are a victim of a dog bite it is vital that you call an experienced personal injury attorney immediately after suffering your injury, so we can start to investigate your case. Our Greensboro personal injury lawyers understand the pain and suffering as a result of an attack, especially when that victim is your child. Fortunately, our staff has handled many dog bite cases with successful outcomes. At Auger & Auger, we will perform our own investigation and gather evidence to present your case and obtain a fair settlement on your behalf.
The warm climate and access to the lakes and rivers in the Greensboro area make this part of North Carolina a favorite for recreational boaters. Unfortunately, this also lends itself to a high number of injuries due to boat accidents, jet-ski collisions, water-skier accidents and even injuries to swimmers. The laws in the area of boating accidents are complicated and diverse based on the interaction of state and federal maritime law. It is imperative that you hire a law firm with the knowledge and experience to handle your claim. The boating accident lawyers at Auger & Auger are experienced and knowledgeable in the area of federal maritime law. If you or a loved one has been injured on one of the waterways in the Greensboro area, including Lake Townsend, Lake Higgins, Lake Jeanette or Lake Brandt, do not hesitate to give us a call to learn your rights.
The favorable climate in the Carolinas attracts a large number of golfers and hunters to the Greensboro and surrounding area. There are over 30 golf courses in the greater Greensboro area and a large number of farm and natural areas used for hunting and ATV riding. Unlike cars, golf carts and all-terrain vehicles are not subject to the same safety constraints whether we are referring to the actual design or the laws regulating their use and operation. This, along with the age and lack of training of the majority of riders using them are a recipe for disaster. The lawyers at Auger and Auger have handled numerous golf cart and ATV accidents involving serious and debilitating injuries. If you or a loved one has been hurt in a golf cart wreck or ATV rollover accident, do not hesitate to call for your free consultation.
