Mike is the Litigation Attorney with Daggett Shuler. He has extensive trial, arbitration, mediation, and State and Federal tort claims experience, and has successfully represented injured people before juries and judges across North Carolina and in our appellate courts.
His work involves many areas of civil litigation, including personal injury, all types of accidents, brain and neurologic injuries, trucking accidents, automobile accidents, motorcycle and moped accidents, forklift and machinery accidents, bicycle accidents, construction accidents, wrongful death, injuries from defective products, premises liability, animal attacks, chronic pain cases, fire cases, thermal and electrical burn injuries, and complex medical claims.
Mike’s experience includes serving as lead and co-counsel at trial to substantial verdicts – and successfully arguing before the North Carolina Supreme Court to unanimous opinion – in two “watershed” premises liability cases, each involving landowner liability for failing to maintain premises in reasonably safe condition for lawful visitors.
