North Carolina Appeals

Ballantyne Appeals Attorney

Personal Injury Case Appeals in Union County, Mecklenburg County, and Gaston County

If you lost your personal injury lawsuit, you may still be eligible to pursue your claim for compensation through an appeal. In cases in which a miscarriage of justice has occurred, an appeal can be filed. Not all law offices take on appeals cases because they follow an entirely different process than filing the initial claim. In fact, many other law firms call upon the appeals attorney at Law Office of Thomas D. Bumgardner, PLLC to represent their clients in a personal injury appeal. 

How to Appeal a Personal Injury Case

It is a reality that not all personal injury lawsuits are resolved correctly, or even fairly. The jury may not have awarded damages or may have awarded an amount far lower than the injured person deserves based on the facts in the case. When this is the case, you can appeal the decision.

Once the judgment has been rendered, the Notice of Appeal must be filed within 30 days to officially begin the appeals process. A “brief” must be drafted, which is a written argument stating why the case deserves to be heard by the North Carolina Court of Appeals. The opposing counsel can submit a reply to the written argument. 

Arguing the Case in Appeals Court

Your attorney will have the opportunity to argue your case in the Appeals Court. The legal talents of your attorney are of extreme importance; the arguments must be well-supported by evidence and presented in the most compelling manner.
