What is a Personal Injury?
When negligent conduct results in injuries, people who are hurt or suffer the loss of a loved one have certain legal rights. This includes the right to pursue a claim in court seeking compensation for your injuries and other losses. For over 40 years, we've helped the good people of North Carolina and South Carolina with a range of personal injury cases, including but not limited to:
Does My Situation Require A Personal Injury Attorney?
Being injured in an accident can be extremely stressful when you're overwhelmed with paperwork, law enforcement, and insurance companies. Most personal injury situations can benefit from the specialized skills and knowledge of someone who has experience in the legal system. Below are scenarios to help you decide whether you need to hire a personal injury attorney.
You've Suffered a Severe Injury or Permanent Disability
Whenever you suffer from serious injuries or sustain a permanent disability following an accident, you should consult with an attorney. Your lawyer can help you secure compensation to prevent you and your family from long-term financial stress. Lawyers are experts in negotiation, and the insurance company may take your claim more seriously if you're being represented by an attorney.
You Aren't Certain Who's At Fault
If you were in an accident and it's unclear who was at fault, you should contact a lawyer. The other party's insurance company will often try to shift blame to you for damages even if the accident wasn't your fault. An attorney can defend your rights and protect you from counterclaims and cross-claims.
There Are Multiple Parties Involved
If you were injured in an accident that involved multiple parties, consulting with a personal injury lawyer will give you the best chance at not being stuck with the bill. Attorneys have the experience necessary to deal with multiple insurance companies at once and help build a case that protects their clients.
The Insurance Company Has Denied or Delayed Your Claim
Insurance company adjusters know that most people do not understand all the complicated laws and procedures in a personal injury claim. They will often use this to their advantage by denying a person's legitimate injury claim. Furthermore, insurance companies also delay claims in hopes that the victim will give up.
Never Accept An Insurance Company's First Settlement Offer
After an accident, you can bet that an insurance company will reach out and offer a low-ball settlement. If you do not understand how to negotiate with an insurer, you may not know how to analyze a settlement offer. Insurance companies may imply that their settlement offers are a "now or never" agreement. They want victims to believe if they reject the offer, they won't get compensation. This is simply not true. The insurance company's goal is to minimize how much money you receive and deals with these issues every day. You should not accept the first settlement offer without first consulting with a lawyer who has a clear understanding of your situation and the value of your claim. Don't get tricked by hardball insurance company tactics.
