This case involved a partial taking for the Evans Road Widening Project in Cary, North Carolina. The homeowner’s property was located on Evans Road, a two-lane road. The Town of Cary took the owner’s front yard to construct a new four-lane, main roadway. The municipality’s initial offer for this taking was $19,005.00. Working with co-counsel, we negotiated an additional $53,495.00 settlement with severance damages resulting in a total settlement of $72,500.00.
