See What Our Clients Say
Do I Have a Case?
If you were hurt by someone else’s careless actions, you have the right to compensation and likely have a case. It starts when we sit down to review your story and look at all of our options. Here are a few factors we will look at when determining your case:
Types of Injuries
We have represented clients with many different types of injuries, including:
- Broken bones
- Traumatic brain injury
- Nerve damage
- Invisible injuries, like emotional harm and depression.
If you have suffered an injury resulting from an accident caused by someone else’s actions, you likely have a case.
Causes of Car Accidents
There are many reasons car accidents happen. You can seek compensation if the other driver was:
- Distracted driving
- On a cellphone
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Not following traffic law
- Simply acting recklessly
Are You Within the Time Frame to File?
An important element of your case depends on the statute of limitations. This is the time frame you have to file under state law. In North Carolina, the statute of limitations is three years from the date of the accident.
Were You Seriously Hurt in a Car Accident?
If you were injured by a careless driver, we will help you to fight for the compensation you deserve.
What Compensation Can I Get?
“What is my case worth?” is typically the first question our Lewis & Keller team hears. It’s hard to put an immediate dollar value on your case without a case review. In most cases, you can be eligible to receive compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages and potential lost future earnings
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Emotional harm
- Loss of relationships and comfort
- Other losses you may have suffered.
It’s important to have an attorney who is experienced in North Carolina car accident cases, and is a champion for every client in their corner.
North Carolina has a rule called “contributory negligence,” which states that if you are found to be even 1% responsible for the accident — if you share any blame at all — you are barred from getting compensation. Finding the right lawyer to defend your case and present all of the necessary evidence is the best way to protect your right to compensation.

How Can a Lawyer Help?
Having an experienced Greensboro, NC, car accident lawyer on your side is essential to pursuing your case. Due to the state’s contributory negligence rule, it’s even more important that you have every resource to prove full responsibility on the part of the other driver.
The right attorney can compile all the evidence and documents needed to prove your case. They will field calls from insurance adjusters who are pressuring you to sign off on lowball offers. They may even be able to pursue the compensation you didn’t know you were entitled to receive.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I Need an Auto Accident Attorney?
Technically, you can represent yourself in your case, but it’s not a good idea to do so. The other side has attorneys who know the law. In North Carolina, you need the strongest possible case to receive compensation, and it’s in your best interest to have someone on your side who also knows the law so you can have the best chance at your maximum possible compensation.
What Should I Do After an Accident?
First, get the cars off the road if you can. Then call first responders to ensure everyone gets medical attention, even if you don’t feel hurt at first. Be sure to file a police report that you can refer to later. Exchange information with the other driver and document the scene in as much detail as possible. Finally, call an accident attorney, like one of our experienced Greensboro, NC, car accident lawyers at Lewis & Keller, as soon as it is safe to do so.
Do I Have to Talk to the Insurance Adjuster?
Few people realize that you are not required to speak to the insurance adjuster. In fact, it’s not a good idea to talk to them without having spoken to a lawyer first. If you sign their offer or accidentally wrongly admit fault, you can lose your rights to any compensation. It’s much safer to refer them to your auto accident attorney so we can communicate on your behalf.
How Long Will My Case Take to Settle?
Every case is unique. Some settle quickly, and others can have a longer process depending on the severity of the injuries you are suffering and how long it takes to negotiate with insurance. Patience is key to getting your case settled, but understand that no matter how long it takes, we will be by your side. We are a champion for every client. Call us today for a free case review.
What Is Negligence?
Negligence, determining who is at fault for an accident, is the key factor in every injury case. It means we need to prove three things. First, we have to prove that the other driver acted in an irresponsible way that no reasonable person would act. Second, we need to show that their action caused the accident. Finally, we must prove that you got hurt in the accident.
