Frequently Asked Questions
What should I do if I have been in a car accident? First and foremost, make sure you seek medical attention. If you do not require immediate medical attention, be sure to get the information of the other drivers involved as well as the contact information of any witnesses who observed the accident. When talking to police who arrive on the scene, do not admit liability or guilt in any way. Once you are able, contact a car accident lawyer who can help you with your case from the onset and help you get the best outcome possible.
Can I be fired from my job if I make a workers’ compensation claim? It is against the law for your employer to fire you for filing or attempting to file a workers’ compensation claim. In fact, with the help of a lawyer experienced in workers’ compensation in North Carolina, you will have the legal protection you need to battle the insurance company on the other side. You have the right to file a claim if you have been injured on the job – use that right.
I heard the DWI laws have changed recently. What does that mean for my case? There were three dozen changes recently made to the DWI laws in North Carolina, including laws regarding the legal limit as well as impoundment of your vehicle and sentencing guidelines. Any one of these changes could greatly affect your case, but it will depend upon the specific circumstances of your DWI. Greenville DWI attorney Timothy E. Burch can help answer your questions and see how these new laws will affect you.
If I hire the Burch Law Office to handle my speeding ticket or underage drinking ticket, will I have to appear in court?

I apply for jobs but I have a charge on my criminal record and I keep getting denied employment. Can I do anything?
