At Henson Fuerst, we’ll fight to get you back on your feet after a car accident that wasn’t your fault.

Bicycle Accidents

North Carolina law requires motor vehicle drivers to share the road with cyclists. But careless and distracted drivers pose a threat to people on bicycles every day. If you’ve been injured in a bicycle accident caused by someone else’s negligence, HensonFuerst can protect your legal rights.

Running your own business can be a rewarding and profitable venture, but it also can be a financial and legal headache.

Defective Product

Most products undergo rigorous safety testing before being released to the public, but sometimes, dangerous products make their way onto store shelves. If you or a loved one was injured by a defective product—including a defective vehicle—you need an experienced law firm to represent you. Call Henson Fuerst today.

Drug Injury

Both prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications have the ability to ease pain and the symptoms of illness, but these drugs also are capable of causing side effects. When a drug’s side effects are severe, it may lead to physical injuries or even death. Our North Carolina drug injury lawyers can handle your drug injury claim.

Fire & Burn Injury

Minor fire and burn injuries are common and usually heal without treatment, but when severe burns result from house fires, exposure to dangerous chemicals, or smoke inhalation, they can cause lifelong physical disabilities, deep scarring, or even death. Henson Fuerst can provide you with the legal representation you need after a burn injury.

Foodborne Illness

When food is left out too long or isn’t cooked properly, dangerous bacteria or viruses can multiply and spread. If a restaurant, food manufacturer, or grocery store is careless and sells you undercooked or spoiled food, you could develop a foodborne illness. At Henson Fuerst, we can hold the negligent party accountable for your medical bills and lost wages.

Land Condemnation

Your home and your land are among your proudest possessions. So when your property is subject to land condemnation to make way for commercial buildings, you should have the chance to fight back. Our North Carolina eminent domain lawyers will do everything they can to help you keep the land that is rightfully yours.

Medical Malpractice

Doctors, surgeons, and other healthcare professionals pledge an oath to practice medicine in an honest and ethical way and to always protect the health of their patients. When this oath is broken through carelessness, they can be held liable for medical malpractice. If you’ve been hurt by a healthcare provider’s negligence, we want to help you.

Motorcycle Accident

Motorcyclists are at a high risk of suffering severe injuries from even minor or low-speed accidents. Many motorcycle accidents are caused by other drivers who don’t see motorcyclists because of distractions or inattentiveness. At Henson Fuerst, we’re dedicated to helping motorcyclists who were injured due to someone else’s carelessness.

Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing homes are sometimes understaffed or their caregivers are undertrained, which can lead to preventable injuries, illnesses, and even death. Our North Carolina nursing home abuse lawyers can hold the nursing home accountable if your loved one was hurt because of the staff’s negligence.

Sexual Abuse

The physical and emotional scars from sexual abuse can be painful reminders of traumatic experiences. It’s important to know that as a victim of sexual abuse, you have the right to file a claim against your abuser for your pain and suffering. At Henson Fuerst, we know North Carolina sexual abuse laws, and we can help you get the money you deserve.

Social Security Disability

If you are unable to work due to injury or illness, Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits may be your only source of income. But sometimes getting SSD benefits can be difficult, as many initial applications are denied. If you have questions about filing your SSD application, we can help.

Taser® Gun Injury

Police and private citizens often use Taser® guns as a non-lethal way to protect themselves from danger, but the electrical current in these devices can cause cardiac arrhythmias and heart attacks. If you or a loved suffered a Taser gun injury as the result of inappropriate excessive force, Henson Fuerst can help you get compensation for medical bills.

Toxins are all around us, but when you’re exposed to them in large quantities, serious illness can occur. Common toxins include asbestos in your home, contaminants in your drinking water, and chemicals in certain household cleaners. Our North Carolina toxic exposure lawyers can help if you or a loved one was injured by a toxin.

Truck Accident

Truck accidents are not only capable of causing serious injuries, but they are also legally complicated. There may be several parties that could be held liable for a single truck—including the driver, the trucking company, the manufacturer of the truck, and more. At Henson Fuerst, we’ll find out who’s responsible and hold those parties accountable.

Veterans Disability

As a disabled veteran, you’ve earned the right to receive benefits to help support you and your family. However, getting those benefits can sometimes take a long time—if you get them at all. Our North Carolina veterans disability lawyers will fight for your rights to benefits.
