Winston-Salem Personal Injury Attorneys
North Carolina Serious Injury - Wrongful Death Lawyers
In many of the most severe accident cases involving disabling or fatal injuries, the defendant might well be a major corporation, a commercial airline, a hospital, or a federal government agency. At Comerford & Britt, our personal injury and wrongful death lawyers have the experience, the courtroom skill, and the resources necessary to even the odds against powerful insurance companies and large corporations. Contact our Winston-Salem personal injury attorneys to learn how we can represent your family's interests in complex accident litigation.
Partners Tom Comerford and Cliff Britt are both AV-rated* trial lawyers with extensive experience in litigation of accident cases involving serious and catastrophic injuries and wrongful death, focusing on resolving the complicated issues of liability, damages, and insurance coverage. In addition, the firm employs several additional talented and energetic attorneys who serve our clients' interests at every stage of a case.
Civil justice attorneys promote fairness and due process for all. In America, all individuals have a right to have their cases heard and fairly judged. At Comerford & Britt, we work to ensure that there is justice for all, not just the privileged few.
Helping Clients Stand Even With the Opposition
Complex personal injury litigation can be expensive, especially when millions are at stake in permanent disability or wrongful death cases. The defense spends freely to defeat your claim, but we also have the capacity to spend whatever is necessary to prove your case, whether you are suffering from a spinal cord injury, brain injury, or other catastrophic injury, or you have lost a loved one in a fatal accident.
In most cases, we advance all of the expenses involved in the investigation and presentation of the case at our own risk — we collect attorneys fees and recover our expenses only when we settle the case or win at trial.

Eliminating Costly Delays Following a Catastrophic Accident
Our practice also emphasizes speed. The best time to start investigating the circumstances of a serious trucking accident, railroad disaster, or other accident is as soon as possible. That way, we can inspect evidence, locate witnesses, and take the initiative away from the insurance defense attorneys. We also offer additional expertise in aviation cases because partner Tom Comerford is a licensed pilot who can fly to meet with you and inspect the accident scene, often in the company of forensic experts. Tom has his own plane, a Twin Commander, and has been flying different kinds of planes for decades.
As proud as we are of our achievements and reputation in the courtroom, some of our most important accomplishments have come from our community work both here and abroad to improve the lives of our youth and fellow neighbors in need. We are active supporters of many organizations, including Big Brothers Big Sisters, The Centers for Exceptional Children, Red Cross, Senior Services, Inc. of Winston-Salem, Second Harvest Food Bank of NW Carolina, Habitat for Humanity, Susan Komen Race for the Cure, the American Heart Association, United Way and Crisis Control Ministries.
We have also supported Children's Flight of Hope, which provides free air transportation for seriously ill or injured children who, due to medical, financial or logistical reasons, can not travel to their destinations by any other method. Further, Comerford & Britt provided representation, pro bono, to eligible victims and their families who sought compensation under the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund. And we are actively involved in other community endeavors such as The Downtown Winston-Salem Partnership and the Arts Council of Winston-Salem.
