Pierce Egerton has worked in both Washington, D.C. and Raleigh. He knows firsthand how insurance companies and big corporations use their enormous financial and political resources to deny injured people and their families a fair recovery.
Thousands of Americans are seriously injured each year, and many suffer devastating physical, emotional, and economic losses. Yet every year, powerful insurance companies and corporate giants spend millions to influence lawmakers and the public to make it harder for accident victims and their families to recover from their losses.
Pierce is extremely skilled at battling against the economically and politically powerful. He’s spent his career fighting those who use their control and influence to suppress and deny the rights of others. Pierce has fought to:
- Protect the independence of local environmental specialists. He has worked to enforce laws protecting our environment against bullying by wealthy companies and developers.
- Recover money that was illegally and unconstitutionally collected from retired people, small businesses, and others. He fought government tax collectors all the way to the United States Supreme Court.
- Protect the rights of law enforcement officers to defend themselves against violent criminals while also advising police on respecting the civil rights of citizens.
- Protect against greedy landlords and unfair government regulation.
Since joining Egerton Law in 1994, Pierce now fights insurance companies and corporate giants that seek to increase their bottom line at the expense of seriously injured persons and their families.
