Our Goldsboro Personal Injury Practice Areas
Our legal team at Strickland, Agner & Associates features seven attorneys with many decades of combined personal injury experience. We have the ability to handle a wide range of cases on behalf of our clients, including:
- Motor vehicle accidents – We can help those who have been injured through no fault of their own in crashes involving cars, motorcycles, trucks and buses. We deal with insurance companies to seek a just recovery for our client’s personal injury claim.
- Bicycle and pedestrian – We understand the severity of the injuries that are suffered by those who are struck by negligent motorists while walking or biking. We work hard to counter arguments that the victims’ own fault contributed to the accident – a common insurance tactic in bicyclist and pedestrian
- Workplace accidents – We know the dangers faced by workers in construction, manufacturing and other industries. We can seek workers’ compensation benefits and explore the ability to recover damages against an at-fault, non-employer in the aftermath of a workplace accident.
- Dog bites and animal attacks – We work closely with dog bite victims and their families to pursue full compensation for them. Many of these cases involve child victims. We can vigorously challenge any claims that a victim caused the attack.
- Slip and fall – We stand up for the rights of those who are hurt in a slip and fall while visiting the property of another due to a dangerous condition that the property owner failed to address or warn about.
We also assist Goldsboro residents with seeking Social Security Disability benefits when a physical or mental impairment keeps them from being able to work and earn a living.
But that’s not all. We are a full-service law firm that can provide representation in many other practice areas as well, including criminal defense (traffic offenses and DWI charges) and family law. Contact us to discuss your legal problem and how we can assist you.

Goldsboro Personal Injury Claim Information
If you have been injured in an accident in Goldsboro or a nearby area in Wayne County, any claim that you file would likely go through Wayne County Superior Court, which is located in the courthouse on Walnut Street in downtown Goldsboro. The court is part of the North Carolina state court system. It is also known as the Eighth Judicial District.
In some cases, a case may be litigated in the federal court system. For instance, a federal court may be the proper venue if your case involves an out-of-state defendant. In our area, most federal court cases are heard in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina, which features clerk’s offices in Raleigh, Greenville, Wilmington, New Bern and Fayetteville.
Additionally, it may be helpful for you to know that the local Social Security field office is located on West New Hope Road in Goldsboro. (You may find a nearer location by using the Social Security Administration office locator tool.)
