Personal Injury

Charlotte Lawyers Specializing in Personal Injury

Whether you have been in a car accident or fallen because of a dangerous working condition, the trauma of a personal injury or wrongful death often doesn’t end there. You could be left with lasting medical conditions, crippling debt, and no hope of getting back to the way things were before your accident. You don’t want to do this alone. The staff at Gorman Law Firm, led by Founding Attorney Ruth Gorman, are here to offer experience and compassion as we aggressively advocate for the injured. We will use our 25 years of experience and diverse legal and financial knowledge to get you the personal and financial justice you deserve.

We provide legal assistance for a variety of personal injury cases, including:

  • Accidental Death
  • Car Accidents
  • Defective Products or Services
  • Drunk Driving Accidents and Injuries
  • Medical Negligence
  • Slip and Fall Accidents
  • Wrongful Death
Personal Injury and Your Immigration Status

Oftentimes people who are out-of-status or have immigration concerns will not pursue personal injury claims for fear that their status will be used against them. That’s why, if you are an immigrant with a personal injury, you need a lawyer who can navigate both these legal arenas. Attorney Ruth Gorman has vast experience in getting you the money you’re entitled to, no matter your immigration status. She understands the concerns you have and will work with you every step of the way so you can get your life back on track.

Get the Support You Need

At Gorman Law Firm, we know the personal and professional toll it can take to finally reach a settlement, and how a personal injury or wrongful death can affect you even years after the incident. That’s why we provide resources for the emotional and financial collateral you may be struggling with in the wake of your case. Through our nonprofit El Centro Hispano Foundation, we seek to support our clients practically and spiritually—because we care about the person, not just the outcome.
