I want to thank you for how prompt you were with communication and feedback. You kept the process moving. Otherwise it still would have been impeded by my previous employer and the insurance company they hired to handle their claims. I would recommend you to others because you took the headache out of dealing with the Workers Compensation company that my employer hired. I never thought I would have an injury on the job. This injury will affect me for the rest of my life, but I’m glad to know there was someone there to walk me through the process. My attorney got me the fullest allowable recovery.

Settlement For Double Amputee

Recently we had the pleasure of representing a double amputee who was injured while being transported to dialysis. The driver did not properly secure him and when she stopped short, he was thrown from his seat and suffered a broken hip. He also suffered an injury to his finger that was seriously complicated by his diabetes. This client was in pretty poor health and ended up in a skilled nursing facility as a result of his injuries and other medical complications. We not only had to fight with the auto insurance company, we had to fight with his health insurance to make sure they did not demand repayment for unrelated health issues he was treating for in the facility. Our medical expenses ended up being about $103,000. We were able to settle the case for $500,000 and get the client well over $250,000 in his pocket.

Did You Suffer Serious Injuries?

Auto accidents can lead to serious, life-changing injuries that can even be deadly. Below are some of the most common injuries associated with car accident claims. If you’re dealing with one of these injuries, or any severe injury, due to no fault of your own, we may be able to help you obtain compensation!

Broken and fractured bones are a common result of car wrecks. Due to the steering wheel’s placement, the rib cage is especially vulnerable. This type of injury can require extensive surgery that may cause months of pain and discomfort.

Victims of car accidents are often left with severe head trauma due to the impact of the crash. From concussions to traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), head trauma is a very serious injury that can lead to lifelong disabilities.

Car crashes frequently lead to back and spinal cord injuries because your body suffers sudden, unsafe movements during the wreck. These injuries are usually severe and leave a lasting impact on the victim.

You have probably heard the term “whiplash,” especially in regards to car accidents. Whiplash is an injury to the soft tissue in one’s neck and/or upper back. It’s very common to suffer whiplash in a car accident, as your head and neck can be quickly jerked in many directions during the crash. However, symptoms may arise days after your accident, so it’s always important to seek medical attention immediately.

Car crash victims tend to suffer cuts and lacerations because of the dangerous amount of broken glass and flying objects. When a laceration is deep enough, it can cause an extreme loss of blood, leading to other serious health concerns.

Why Did Your Auto Accident Happen?

One minute you may be riding to the store and the next you’re in an ambulance on the way to the hospital. An auto accident can happen in the blink of an eye for many different reasons. Listed below are some of the most common causes of car wrecks we see. If another driver caused your crash due to one of the following reasons or any other negligent actions, call us today for help!

Statute of Limitations in North Carolina

The statute of limitations is a law that governs the amount of time an individual has to file a lawsuit against the other party. This law varies from state to state, so it’s important to be aware of the law in the state where you reside, as it may affect your claim.

The statute of limitations for personal injury lawsuits in North Carolina is three years, according to the North Carolina General Assembly. This means you have three years from the time of your accident to file a lawsuit against the other party.

While car accident claims are typically able to be settled outside of the courtroom, the statute of limitations is important in the event that a fair settlement cannot be reached and you need to pursue a lawsuit.

Let’s say you got whiplash from a car accident on University Parkway, a busy road in Winston-Salem. You waited almost three years to take legal action and your neck still hurts. Then, you decided to file an insurance claim but haven’t been able to get the full amount you deserve from the insurance company. Three years have now passed since your accident and you need to file a lawsuit because the insurance company isn’t treating you fairly. Unfortunately, you’re outside of the statute of limitations and likely won’t be able to receive compensation. This is why it’s vital to seek legal counsel as soon as possible after your accident. Our attorneys know the laws in North Carolina and can help ensure you don’t miss your chance of obtaining the compensation you deserve.

Proving Negligence

If you were hurt in a car accident that wasn’t your fault, you have the legal right to seek compensation for your losses. However, you will be claiming that the accident was someone else’s fault and you have to be ready to prove it. In order to have a successful claim, you will have to demonstrate that the other party was negligent in his/her actions.

To prove negligence, you must:

  • Prove that the other party owed a duty of care.
  • Prove that the other party breached that duty of care by acting in a way that showed a wanton disregard for the safety of another person/property.
  • Prove your accident was a direct result of the other party’s negligent behavior.
  • Prove your injuries were a direct result of the accident.

Without an experienced attorney on your side, it can be difficult to determine liability. Call us today and we’ll walk you through every step of this important legal process.

Frequently Asked Questions

After a car wreck, it can be incredibly difficult to know how to proceed, especially when you’re trying to recover from serious injuries. Keep these tips in mind in order to protect your chances of recovering compensation:

  • Never admit fault.
  • Seek medical attention and follow your doctor’s orders.
  • Don’t sign anything from the other party’s insurance company.
  • Call our North Carolina car accident lawyers to discuss your options.

Definitely! An official police report will contain important details about the crash that may support your claim later on. What’s more, police reports are often used by insurance adjusters to help determine liability for the accident. This determination will directly affect the amount of compensation the insurance adjuster offers you.

At Lewis & Keller, we get asked this question all the time. Keep in mind that every case is different, so it’s difficult to provide an exact number upfront. When calculating the amount of compensation we believe a client deserves, we take into consideration all of the accident-related bills they’ve incurred, as well as the impact their accident as had on their life. However, there are many other factors that will go into our evaluation of your case’s worth. If you’re wondering how much you’re owed after an auto accident, give us a call and we’ll start reviewing your case!

While legal representation isn’t required to file a car accident claim, we highly recommend consulting an experienced lawyer for help. This will not only make the legal process much easier for you and your family but also increase your chances of receiving the maximum amount of compensation possible. Without legal representation, insurance adjusters will likely try to pay you as little money as possible for your injuries and damages. When you hire our office, we’ll work for you and fight hard to ensure the insurance company isn’t taking advantage of you.

After reviewing your claim, if we feel you do not need an attorney, we will tell you so straight away. With our vast experience in handling personal injury cases, we know that not everyone needs an attorney to assist them with their claim. We will only recommend that you hire a lawyer if we genuinely believe it is in your best interest to have one.

Every case is different, making it difficult to predict an exact timeline. However, we understand that our clients usually need money for their medical bills and other expenses as soon as possible. That’s why we work quickly and efficiently towards the best possible outcome for our clients. Furthermore, we’ll keep you updated on the status of your case so you always know what to expect.

Most likely not. The majority of car accident claims are able to be settled outside of court. However, in the event that trial becomes necessary, it will be to your benefit to have a tough lawyer representing your interests. Our team of trial lawyers is prepared to help you file a lawsuit and take your case to trial, if needed. We have years of experience battling insurance companies in the courtroom and aren’t afraid to go to trial to get our clients what they deserve.
