NC Personal Injury Attorneys Setting the Standard

Overview

The Greensboro, North Carolina law firm of Pinto Coates Kyre & Bowers, PLLC had its start in 1994 as Pinto Coates & Kyre, LLC.  Our goal from the beginning was to focus exclusively on civil litigation, and we shared a common vision of providing legal support and courtroom expertise to companies and individuals across the state.

We started the law firm primarily as a defense firm, but for some years now we have been accepting cases on behalf of those filing suit in several practice areas: personal injury, wrongful death, property damage and commercial and business losses. We believe that working with clients on both sides of the courtroom has given us a unique advantage, providing us with a better understanding of the challenges each case presents. Regardless of the type of case, we leverage our full experience in an effort to achieve the best possible outcome for every client.

Over the years our goal has been to provide dedicated, knowledgeable representation to our clients, in and out of the courtroom, while maintaining the highest ethical standards. Our attorneys have had the opportunity to try a large number of cases to verdict across the state of North Carolina, and they enjoy a statewide reputation as accomplished trial counsel.

In today's legal environment, many cases are resolved through formal and informal settlement discussions, especially court-ordered mediations or arbitrations. We pride ourselves on our negotiation skills, and the firm's reputation for having quality and experienced trial attorneys is critical to achieving satisfactory settlements for our clients, whether they are plaintiffs or defendants.

If you are facing legal action, or if you have been injured or otherwise wronged and you want to learn more about your legal options, the attorneys at Pinto Coates Kyre & Bowers, PLLC are ready to help. Please contact us in our Greensboro office at 336.282.8848 to schedule an appointment.

  • In a product liability action involving a self-propelled wheelchair that caught fire, resulting in the house to catch on fire and burning Plaintiff’s decedent, the Court of Appeals held that the defense of “insulating negligence” (by which a defendant is insulated from liability by an independent act of another) does not apply where it is […]The Court of Appeals, asserting that it was following established law, declined to allow damages for the loss of a pet dog based upon a strong emotional bond the owners had with the dog, and instead damages were generally limited to the cost of “replacing” the dog, since the Court viewed the dog as merely […]
  • Although Plaintiff filed the Complaint without it being signed and ordinarily that would result in the action being deemed not to have been properly instituted, Plaintiff’s prompt remedial measures of filing an amended, signed Complaint corrected the deficiency, and the amended Complaint related back to the commencement of the action for purposes of timeliness.
