Personal Injury


The insurance companies have a great deal of resources and advantage here in North Carolina.  Do not make the mistake of dealing with them on your own!



DISCLAIMER:  the following information is offered for educational purposes only and is not to be construed as legal advice.  Call an attorney for a consultation before taking any action with your case.  



If you've suffered a personal injury through no fault of your own, call now for a consultation.  You have a limited time to file suit, so do not delay.  In some cases, the insurance company will offer you a quick settlement and pressure you to sign an agreement, waiving your right to file suit.  Do not sign away your right to file suit until you consult with an attorney.   


North Carolina is a contributory negligence jurisdiction, which means that if your opposing party in litigation can prove that you were in anyway at fault for your accident, you may not be able to recover anything at all!
