Dedicated To Helping You Recover From Your Injuries
Any car accident has the potential to cause serious injuries and ongoing disabilities. We work to make sure our clients are compensated as fully as possible for medical bills, lost income, long-term care and other future expenses, as well as pain and suffering. We will seek every avenue of insurance coverage that is available to you and will work with care providers to reduce your bills when you do not have the means to pay them.
We have represented clients who suffered permanent or life-changing injuries such as brain injury, spinal cord paralysis, broken bones, amputation and disfiguring scars. Our legal team goes the extra mile to ensure that clients have access to quality medical care and that their compensation reflects their future needs and loss of earnings.
We have also recovered wrongful death compensation for fatal car accidents. While no amount of money can make up for the loss of a loved one, a wrongful death lawsuit can hold the negligent party responsible and help survivors with the resulting financial hardships.
Answering Your Questions
Many of our clients have a lot of questions about their claim before they even meet with us, which is why we have taken the time to answer some more common questions here:
How does a personal injury claim for a car accident work in North Carolina?
In most cases, a car accident in North Carolina means that each victim will file their own insurance claim for any injuries or property damage they experienced. According to state law, victims have three years from the accident date to file a claim. The state’s courtrooms use “contributory negligence” to determine what amount of liability a victim has in their claim, and award them compensation based on how much under 50% liability they find a victim.
How are personal injury attorneys paid?
Personal injury attorneys only collect their payment from the compensation they win for their clients. This means that if we do not win your case, you do not pay us. If we do secure compensation for you, we will collect our fees from your settlement before you receive your check, so no money ever comes out of your pocket to pay us.
How is pain and suffering calculated in North Carolina?
There is not a flat amount that is automatically awarded to an accident victim for the pain and suffering they experienced. If you cannot reach an agreed settlement value through negotiations, a judge or jury will award you with an amount that they deem fair based on your unique experience of your accident. In these cases, our job is to accurately illustrate the full extent of the suffering that you experienced.
