Asheville Personal Injury Attorney

At Jay Kerr Law, we passionately strive to help those in Asheville and the surrounding area who suffer disabling personal injuries or the loss of a loved one find justice. We have significant experience in personal injury, workers’ compensation, and wrongful death claims.

Our practice focuses on personal injury and wrongful death claims and especially helping those who have sustained life-altering, catastrophic injuries. However, we also help those who have sustained less severe personal injuries but which otherwise cause temporary hardship and result in considerable medical expenses and lost wages.

Representing personal injury clients requires teamwork and resources. Developing proper evidence for reasonable compensation requires a thorough factual investigation, medical and legal research, expert witness coordination, and other significant evidence preparation.

Successful Personal Injury Claims

As a trusted personal injury attorney in Asheville and throughout North Carolina, Jay Kerr Law has successfully helped persons who have sustained various forms of personal injuries: traumatic brain injuries, disabling spinal injuries, severe burns, amputations, various organ losses, and numerous other serious bodily injuries caused by the negligence of another person or corporation.

Asheville Workers’ Comp Attorney

Many of our cases also involve workplace accidents whereby we represent the injured person as to both the workers’ compensation claims and the third-party negligence claims. A proper coordination of such claims can prove highly critical to the overall success of each.

Over the last two decades, we have represented hundreds of workers who have been injured on the job or have contracted an occupational disease. We have substantial experience litigating denied claims (workers’ compensation and third-party negligence) from the initial Deputy Commissioner hearing level through the North Carolina appellate courts. Although most work accidents, per se, are not denied occurrences, other contentious issues often arise (e.g., whether certain injuries are causally related to the accident, whether specific medical treatment is reasonable and necessary, and whether physical disability has been sustained by the worker as a direct result of the accident injuries).

Workplace Accidents & Workers’ Compensation

We handle claims for injured workers employed in many positions and industries, including hospitality, food & beverage, trucking, agriculture, transportation & trucking, and allied healthcare, and we have significant experience with construction and industrial accident claims.

Furthermore, we have considerable experience representing those who have sustained brain injuries, spinal trauma, severe burns, amputations, or other catastrophic injuries, which require daily attendant care or supervision and considerable, on-going medical and rehabilitation care. See our website section on Traumatic Brain Injuries.
