Holding negligent drivers accountable in North Carolina

A brain injury can happen in different ways during a car accident. The force of impact can cause a person’s head to violently shake forward and backward, and the brain is damaged from crashing into the skull. Or a person’s head makes contact with a windshield, window, steering wheel or headrest during impact.

The result is a traumatic brain injury (TBI). There could be a skull fracture, bleeding in the brain (hemorrhage), clotting in the brain (hematoma) or swelling (edema). Victims may need surgery, hospitalization, medication and therapy.

Some victims suffer a concussion, which is a mild form of TBI, and may recover within weeks or months. Others suffer more serious injuries that can have lifelong effects.

There are a wide range of symptoms that people experience with a TBI. They can include headache, nausea, fatigue, speech problems and dizziness. Some people experience blurred vision, ringing in the ears, or changes in smell. Others may have sensitivity to light or sound and confusion or cognitive problems.

That’s why it’s important to see a doctor as soon as possible following a car accident. Signs of a TBI may not be immediately apparent. A doctor can diagnose the injury and start treating it right away.

If a negligent driver caused the accident that left you with a brain injury, you deserve financial compensation. But recovering compensation can be complicated. Negligent drivers often deny doing anything wrong and don’t accept responsibility. That puts you in a position of having to prove negligence.

We know how to fight insurance companies to get results

Insurance companies will challenge your claim for compensation. They know there can be a lot of money at stake. They’ll question the seriousness of your brain injury and try to get you to undergo an independent medical exam. Or they’ll try to blame you for causing the accident to try to prevent you from recovering compensation.

Another common tactic insurance companies use is to make a lowball settlement offer. But your current and future medical expenses and other damages are likely to cost much more than the amount they are offering.

Our attorneys believe you deserve better. That’s why we investigate your accident to get the facts about what happened. We know where to look for evidence that proves negligence and build a strong case that insurance companies have to take seriously.

Then we demand the compensation you should be receiving. Many times we are able to negotiate a settlement that meets your needs because insurance companies know we are not afraid to fight for you in court. We have a long record of getting results for clients in jury trials. It’s just one reason insurance companies hate us.
