Everett Gaskins Hancock represents individuals in personal injury matters throughout North Carolina. There are many complicated issues that can arise when someone is injured through no fault of their own. Many times insurance companies do not want to cover all medical expenses or lost wages and will pressure an injured victim to settle early. It can be a great advantage to have experienced attorneys dealing with insurance adjustors and insurance companies’ attorneys, allowing clients to focus on what is most important- their health.
Jason Tuttle and Fiona Steer work together on EGH’s personal injury matters, providing free consultation to assess claims and lend advice. We will handle personal injury matters on a contingency fee basis, meaning that clients will not pay a retainer or be billed monthly except for expense reimbursement. The firm will be paid a percentage of the settlement or judgement we obtain on your behalf.
A majority of personal injury claims settle prior to trial. However, if trial becomes necessary we are ready and willing to present your case to a jury. Ed Gaskins, EGH’s managing partner and senior trial lawyer, has tried a number of personal injury cases over his more than 40 year legal career. Jason Tuttle has gained significant personal injury trial experience as well, having focused the majority of his 15 year legal career in the field of personal injury. Ed, Jason and Fiona will work as a team when litigating a personal injury case.
