Why Attorneys Refer Cases to Ward Black Law

Generally, other law firms and attorneys refer challenging personal injury cases to us, safe knowing that we have the track record, experience, and resources to litigate complex matters and represent clients vigorously and skillfully. We pride ourselves on being approachable, empathetic, and committed. 

The dedicated attorneys at Ward Black Law see our referral program as an essential aspect of the firm’s overall mission to fight for the rights of victims injured through no fault of their own. We provide victims and their families with solid legal representation. 

Our litigation team at Ward Black Law has 70 years of combined litigation experience in various practice areas ranging from defective products and drug cases to mesothelioma and other asbestos-related claims. Our team has developed a successful track record, handling both pre-trial settlements and trials. 

Other attorneys know that when they refer clients to us, we will commit fully to the case and provide clients with the individual attention and care they deserve. While our firm is large enough to handle complex cases, taking on corporations and large insurance companies, we have retained the feel of a small firm and provide clients with a shoulder to lean on during what can be a stressful and emotional time.  

Types of Cases We Handle

Our experienced attorneys are equipped to handle many different types of cases. Some of the cases we often receive as referrals include the following: 

Serious Workers’ Compensation and Personal Injury Cases

We can handle serious workers’ compensation and personal injury claims for significant injuries such as:

  • Back injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Lung diseases
  • Hip and knee injuries

The dedicated attorneys at Ward Black Law also handle construction and workplace accidents caused by contractor, sub-contractor or employer negligence.

Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

We work to hold nursing homes and assisted living facilities accountable for egregious abuse or neglect of their residents. If your client or their loved one suffered an injury due to neglect or abuse in a long-term care facility, our attorneys are ready to fight for their rights and pursue compensation for their injuries and losses.

Cancer from Toxic Substances or Harmful Drugs

If your client has cancer that could be caused by asbestos, solvents, benzene, or prescription drugs such as Zantac® and Belviq®, we can help. Types of cancer cases we handle include:

  • Mesothelioma 
  • Lung cancers
  • Leukemia
  • Colorectal cancer
  • Bladder cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Esophageal cancer

Victims suffering from asbestos-related cancers may have multiple avenues for pursuing compensation, including workers’ compensation, cases against bankrupt businesses, and tort claims. 

Potentially, a variety of cancers could be traced back to work-related exposure or everyday consumer items such as medications, talcum powder, and other reasons. We can assess each individual lawyer’s referred case to determine whether a particular cancer may be caused by job-related exposure or is linked to the use of a specific product. We also litigate mass and toxic tort cases in North Carolina.

Our attorneys have experience in litigating complex cases involving defective products, defective medical devices, and faulty surgical components such as:

  • Failing hip implants

  • Birth defects and injuries from Provigil® or Nuvigil®
  • Eye injuries from Elmiron®

At this time, we are involved in an active MDL for vaping-related injuries. Feel free to contact us if you know someone who has become addicted or suffered severe vaping injuries such as lung damage.

How Referral Fees Work

According to the North Carolina State Bar, an attorney may receive a fee for referring a case to another attorney if the total fee is reasonable and both attorneys assume responsibility for the representation. 

At Ward Black Law, strong ethical guidelines govern everything we do, including the division of referral fees. Our general practice is to work with referring attorneys in various fee-splitting arrangements depending on the particular cases. Please contact us if you would like more specific information on how we handle referral fees.
