Attorney Sean Cole Is Here To Protect You After An Injury

Originally from the mountains of Virginia, Sean Cole has made his home in North Carolina and devoted his practice to helping injured people. A graduate of King University in Bristol, Tennessee, and the Wake Forest University School of Law in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, he’s always been someone who fought for people who needed his help.

Sean has been a personal injury attorney since 1997. He started working for insurance companies, but he changed sides to work for injured people just like you. He has the knowledge and experience to tell you what the insurance company doesn’t want you to know and to help you make the law and the facts work together.

“The insurance industry has enormous resources: money, highly trained adjusters and lawyers. They use those resources to turn the law against injured people. I think that’s unfair, so I decided in 2000 to fight for people who are up against those stacked odds. And I never looked back.” – Sean Cole

At his firm, Sean Cole brings the law to your corner. Most people have never had a personal injury claim when they first contact him, so he wants to educate you on what is going to happen and when. Knowing what to expect during the process of a personal injury case helps people get through it without worrying so much.

As soon as you hire him, Sean starts to gather the information necessary to pursue your case and get you the compensation you deserve. He also has set a schedule for regular contact, so he checks in to see how you’re doing and lets you know what’s going on with your case. His goal is always to get you the best recovery possible under the circumstances while keeping you involved so that you feel informed and empowered.
