Experienced Lawyers Protecting Your Rights After A Car Accident
If you have been injured in a car accident in North Carolina, you should not talk to any insurance company other than your own. The opposing insurance company’s goal is to minimize its payout to you. One way they try to accomplish this goal is by quickly getting you to make a statement that will damage your case.

Contributory Negligence In Auto Accident Cases
North Carolina is a contributory negligence state. This means that if the other driver’s insurance company is able to show that you were even 1 percent at fault for the accident, then you will not be able to recover any compensation for damages such as medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. For example, if an insurance adjustor can get you to agree that you were speeding, even just a little over the limit, that may be the end of your case, no matter how much at fault the other side was.
Our job as your attorneys is to preserve your rights to compensation. By law in North Carolina, the other side’s insurance adjustor is not allowed to talk with you once you tell him or her that you are represented by a lawyer.
Dealing With Complex Insurance Issues
Our lawyers have experience in dealing with complex insurance issues such as MedPay, stackable coverage (which enables you to combine insurance from different vehicles), and uninsured and underinsured drivers coverage. We will also advise you on how to obtain medical coverage from your health insurance, Medicaid, or Medicare while your legal case is in process. We understand how to deal with ERISA and issues of subrogation to minimize or eliminate the amount you must maximize your bottom line.
If you have suffered catastrophic injuries, our lawyers will hire medical experts and life-care planners to make sure that we identify all of your long-term needs before we attempt to settle your case. If you are on Medicaid, we will help create a special-needs trust for your lawsuit recovery to maintain your eligibility for Medicaid payments.
