If you've been involved in a car wreck, you're at risk of becoming a victim twice—first in the accident and second by the insurance company. You may trust the insurance company to compensate you fairly and promptly, but many insurance companies don't play fairly. Whether the insurance company devalues your injuries or offers you less than you're owed, our North Carolina auto accident attorneys will stand up for your rights.

At HensonFuerst, we believe that the company responsible for the product that injured you should be held accountable. The product's designer and manufacturer should make sure the product is safe, has clear instructions, and discloses all risks associated with usage. When they fail to ensure their product's safety, they put people's lives at risk.
Whether it's a prescription drug or an over-the-counter (OTC) drug, all types of drugs can cause side effects for users.

Foodborne illnesses are caused by contaminated food or beverages.

There is no such thing as a minor motorcycle accident—what might be a "fender bender" for a car could be deadly for a motorcycle rider. Why? Lack of protection. Motorcyclists only have a helmet and the clothes on their backs. If safety were only a question of skill, most cyclists would be fine. But no matter how capable you are, you can't control other driver's actions. When you ride a motorcycle, every other driver on the road is a potential threat to your life.
Nursing homes and other long-term care facilities should be secure and restful. But what happens when you discover that the home you trusted has been abusing or neglecting your loved one's needs?

Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income are benefits programs designed to be a safety net for people who are unable to work due to injury or illness. If you're unable to work due to a disease or injury, you may be eligible for SSD benefits regardless of your age. Applications for SSD claims can be difficult to file, and most initial applications are denied. Even if you have a valid case, your application could still be rejected.
Taser guns are electroshock weapons that release electrical current through dart-like electrodes. When used properly, the electrical current causes involuntary muscle contractions, which are designed to incapacitate the person being shot. When shot excessively, stun guns may lead to cardiac arrhythmia and ventricular fibrillation—or heart attack—which can cause cardiac arrest or even death.
Toxic exposure occurs when you make contact with hazardous amounts of a harmful chemical or substance that leads to serious injury or death. Toxins can appear in:

At HensonFuerst, we believe that all members of our armed services, whether they are active duty, retired, or the family members of a man or woman in the military, are entitled to the benefits that were promised to them upon enlistment.
Your employer is required to pay you a fair wage under both state and federal laws. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and North Carolina Wage and Hour Act are designed to protect your rights if your employer fails to pay you overtime or minimum wage or forces you to work off the clock.
Workers' compensation laws are designed to provide benefits for injuries you suffered while working. That means, if you're hurt while performing services on behalf of your employer, you may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits.
Nothing can truly compensate you for the loss of a loved one. Your future is changed, and you're deprived of the ability to create more memories with the person who died.

As your North Carolina wrongful death attorneys, it's our job to look after the part of your future you can control—your financial security.
