Car Accident Lawyers in Fayetteville Fighting to Help Injury Victims Recover Fair Compensation

If you or a family member have been involved in a car wreck, you may suffer emotional trauma and lose income if you cannot work. In many instances, individuals involved in even minor accidents are left to deal with costly medical expenses. Finally, you may not be sure what the next steps should be in dealing with the insurer or how to file an insurance claim independently.

For all these reasons, it is in your best interest to hire a highly experienced car accident lawyer to help you with the complex claims process from start to finish.

Do I Have to Hire a Car Accident Lawyer to File a Claim?

While no law specifically states that you must hire a car accident lawyer to help you file a claim, it is always best to do so. A car accident claim can be complicated based on the circumstances involved in the case. A skilled attorney can thoroughly evaluate the case and ensure the necessary paperwork is completed correctly and turned in on time.

Our firm handles a wide variety of car accident claims, which include but are not limited to:

  • Defective vehicles
  • Drunk driving accidents
  • Fatal accidents
  • Head on collisions
  • Hit-and-run accidents
  • Rear end collisions
  • Sideswipe accidents
  • T-bone accidents

One of the leading causes of accidents is driver negligence related to cell phone use. In today’s modern world, motorists are often distracted by their cell phones and are not paying attention to the road.

If you have been involved in any type of motor vehicle accident, contact Brent Adams & Associates to schedule a consultation immediately.

Can a Car Accident Attorney Help Me Deal With the Insurance Company?

Once an auto accident has been reported, you may be quickly contacted by an insurance adjuster. The adjuster may offer you a settlement to close the claim. For many accident victims, a quick settlement may seem appealing. However, a quick settlement generally does not consider any future medical care you may require or pain and suffering.

Instead, if an insurance adjuster contacts you, it is recommended to have a lawyer act as your legal advocate. Because North Carolina does not offer PIP coverage, the negligent driver is responsible for paying medical expenses and property damage. However, the other party’s insurance company is interested in protecting its bottom line rather than the well-being of those who file claims. In many automobile accident cases, the other party’s insurance provider will try to blame that victim to lessen their liability.

Our attorneys can determine who should be held liable in cases, including those involving multiple parties. Even if you have been involved in an automobile accident with an uninsured driver, our legal team can assist you in obtaining a financial recovery from your own insurance provider.

Brent Adams & Associates is firmly committed to holding the at-fault driver accountable for their actions and would be honored to help you.

What Type of Financial Compensation Can I Collect in a Car Accident Case?

If you have sustained car accident injuries, you probably are dealing with a stack of medical bills that may be hard to pay if you cannot work. North Carolina law allows accident victims to try and recover economic and non-economic damages after a collision.

Economic Damages

Economic damages are awarded to reimburse drivers and their passengers for money they have spent due to being injured. Some economic damages that may be awarded after a car crash include:

  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Past and future medical bills
  • Property damage

Economic damages can also be structured to help pay for necessary ongoing medical treatment such as physical therapy or rehabilitation. If you have suffered serious injuries that require skilled nursing care, you may be able to collect compensation that can give you peace of mind to face the future. Furthermore, if you have sustained permanent injuries, you may be able to collect compensation to pay for modifications to your home or vehicle.

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages are subjective to the facts involved in the accident. Non-economic damages are meant to try and make the victim “whole” again and compensate them for intangible losses. Non-economic damages often include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Emotional distress
  • Permanent disfigurement and scarring
  • Loss of consortium

If you have suffered a personal injury after a car accident, contact a lawyer immediately who can help you understand your rights and what compensation you may be entitled to recover.
