Three Reasons to Seek Legal Advice After An Accident
There are many reasons to seek legal advice from an experienced North Carolina personal injury lawyer after being injured in an auto accident.
1. Your Claim Value. Personal injury claims can include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, permanent disability and other aspects.
2. The complicated nature of personal injury and traffic laws in North Carolina. We have a law called contributory negligence. Under this law, if the injured person is slightly at fault in the accident he or she can’t recover anything. The adjuster handling your claim knows about this law and he will look for reasons to pay you nothing.
At Marcari, Russotto, Spencer and Balaban, we advise you not to talk to an adjuster without consulting with a lawyer. Most importantly don’t let the adjuster record your statement without a lawyer present. Any recorded statements can and will be used against you.
3. Your claim may involve legal issues about Underinsured and Uninsured Motorist coverage. You need sound legal advice to make the right decisions. Many times there are additional insurance coverages that will help you receive a just settlement.
If you've been serious injured in an accident in North Carolina, contact the experienced injury lawyers at Marcari, Russotto, Spencer and Balaban and protect your rights.
