Catastrophic Injuries - Greenville Personal Injury Attorney

    No one really starts their day expecting to get seriously injured. Unfortunately, however, these injuries do occur. When an accident happens, and it results in an injury that is life changing in severity, it is known as a catastrophic injury. While we often think of these types of injuries as the result of incidents such as car accidents, the truth is that a catastrophic injury can happen in many ways, and some that even may seem unlikely.

    As an example, think about the last time you slipped on something and fell. Whether the substance was wet or icy, you likely felt your feet go out from under you as your center of balance shifted and your stomach dropped as you began to fall. Depending on whether you landed on your back, buttocks, side, or front, your likelihood of injuries and type of possible injuries can vary widely. While you may be able to walk away with some minor bruising and hurt pride, you are equally as likely to end up with something broken or torn, especially depending on your age. The older you get, the more likely an injury is to be catastrophic.

    Even if you are on the younger end of the spectrum, a fall can mess up your body. A torn tendon or ligament can mean surgery and years of physical therapy even just to get back to a point of performing daily tasks. Sometimes however, the injury is too severe. Head, neck, or back injuries are not uncommon with falls, and they can lead to life-long problems such as paralysis. When this happens, you need someone who is on your side, an will fight to lessen the burden of your injury.

    What If They Don't Have Insurance? - Greenville Attorney

    Driving requires a lot of preparation before you ever get behind the wheel. The state you live in may have stricter regulations than others, but at the very least you normally find some of the same basic requirements in most places. In North Carolina, these include requirements like driving classes, practice hours behind the wheel, a written exam and a driving test, and a probationary period with certain restrictions. One of the most important things that is needed before you can actually go out on the road, however, is one of the more expensive factors. I am speaking, of course, about insurance.

    In order to legally drive a car registered in most states, you need to have some type of insurance. In North Carolina, you need liability insurance to protect the driver and their family against injury and property damage that is caused by another driver's negligence who might have limited, minimum, or no insurance. Regardless of how your state insurance laws work, it is needed in case you are in an accident and you are hurt, someone else is hurt, or either car is damaged. A lot of the insurance conversation depends on who was at fault in the crash, but what happens when the person at fault doesn't have insurance?

    If you were in an accident and at least one party doesn't have insurance, there are a few things that alter how you need to handle the situation. This becomes more complicated based upon how much damage was done or how severe the injuries were. You will likely need help medically and financially, and trying to chase someone down so they can take responsibility isn't easy. Insurance companies usually do this, but they can scew the details of the crash so you wind up without the necessary amount of compensation. This is why you need to have a good lawyer that you can rely on.


    Wayne Hardee has decades of experience with accident cases of all kinds, including those where at least one person involved is uninsured. While this isn't the ideal situation, there are still things that can be done to help you out. If you were injured, you should know that there is someone on your side. Wayne will fight to get you the compensation you deserve so that you can focus on your recovery. Give him a call today, and see how much of a difference he can make in your case!


    Texting Accidents - Greenville Texting Accident Attorney

    With the pace of life today, it can be difficult to put your phone down. It doesn't seem to matter what age you are anymore, there are people in every generation who act as if they are addicted to their phones. Whether you spend your time scrolling through social media or even talking to your family and friends, there is so much that you can do on that small screen. While it can be a nice change of pace to unplug every now and then and soak in the world around you, you don't always have the time. That is when the phone becomes a useful crutch.

    The problem is that a large amount of people don't seem to be able to put theirs down at all. They continue to put their noses in their phones when they should be focused on something else that is in front of them. This can include anything from watching their children to driving or even sleeping. While in some cases it's rude or disrespectful, in others it is downright dangerous. It doesn't seem to matter how many times people are told that they shouldn't use their phones in certain situations, some just don't seem to care.

    If you have ever stopped at a traffic light and looked around, chances are that you have seen someone fiddling on their phone while behind the wheel. It can be frustrating if you are stuck behind them and they are more focused on their phone than the road so you can't move until they do, but it can be downright terrifying if they are moving any paying attention to their phone. It only takes a second to get into a crash, and when someone else on the road is looking down at their phone for any reason, it can be more than enough time to cause an accident that can turn deadly.

    Property Damage - Greenville Premise Liability Attorney

    Even just going about your day, there are so many things that can go wrong. It's terrifying to think that just a few seconds can change someone's entire life, or sadly end it. Things like car accidents or severe falls are some of the things that we, as humans, can have seemingly random responses to. Our bodies may react in any number of ways, and we may not understand why. It's a terrifying concept when you think about it, but we deal with it every day that we get up and do our normal routine. Something that really gives you pause is that even if you aren't physically hurt in an accident, you can still end up paying for the incident if there is property damage done.

    While the first thing we should think of in regards to an accident is the possibility of someone being hurt, there is often some amount of damage done to the location as well. As an example, if someone happens to fall against a window in a house, there is a possibility that they could go through the glass and fall. While your first reaction is going to be to check on them and make sure they didn't get to severely hurt, once they're clearly okay or helped to medical authorities, your attention will likely turn to the glass. That is property damage, and it needs to be settled however the property owner sees fit.

    Another example of this is a car accident. Whether or not the vehicle(s) involved end up totaled, there is almost always something that needs to be fixed. Sometimes you're lucky enough to get away with only a couple of scratches, but sometimes it's a dent that needs to be fixed or maybe there's a leak in something now and you need some work done. If you weren't the one that caused the crash, you don't want to have to pay for the repairs yourself and you shouldn't have to. You want to get the money for the repairs from the person who was responsible. That is where we can help.

    If you find yourself with property damage from an accident you didn't cause, Wayne Hardee can help. With decades of experience, Wayne can make sure that you get the compensation you deserve. You've earned a good legal team on your side while you recover, and Wayne is exactly that. Give us a call and see how much he can help your case!
