Verdicts and Settlements


It has been our privilege to help clients and other lawyers who have associated with us gain large verdicts and settlements — including several of the largest in Northeastern North Carolina or the entire State for particular years.

The facts of every case are different, and the law that applies to each case is different. The fact there have been large recoveries in past cases does not guarantee that there will be the same recovery in current and future cases.

Often with large settlements, a condition of the payment is that specifics not be disclosed. Many other times, our clients wish to keep the terms of their settlements private. In either case, we consider these to be Confidential Settlements.

As examples of verdicts and settlements we can disclose, our lawyers have helped individuals and businesses recover sums ranging from $300,000 to multi-million dollar amounts in the following types of cases:

  • Motor vehicle accidents;
  • Negligent operation of commercial vehicles, trucks and tractor-trailers;
  • Negligent operation of public busses;
  • Airplane crash wrongful death;
  • Insurance unfair business practice and bad faith;
  • Life Insurance underwriting mistakes;
  • Uninsured motorist;
  • Underinsured motorist;
  • Medical Malpractice/Negligent health care;
  • Electrocution and electric shock;
  • Permanent injury caused by defective products;
  • Sexual harassment and assault; and
  • Criminal attacks by company employees with criminal records.

In addition, we have assisted businesses in complex litigation including: contested business dissolution; non-compete clauses; contract disputes; and insurance coverage and reservation of rights.

Sam Dixon has represented many people facing charges carrying long prison sentences, life imprisonment, and the death penalty.

“I emailed Mr. Dixon on a weekend and got a reply within hours. The next business day his office contacted me and walked me through the process every step of the way. They handled EVERYTHING better and CHEAPER than I could (I couldn't appear in court on my court date due to work). HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!” — Sam (More reviews)
