When to hire an auto accident lawyer
After a car crash, injured victims often seek to resolve the legal matter quickly, particularly if the accident was relatively minor. However, even treatable injures can trigger thousands of dollars in medical bills. The insurance company might pressure you into a quick settlement before you fully grasp the extent of your injuries and the compensation that might be available. Speaking with a knowledgeable auto accident attorney can help you make wise decisions on how to proceed whether you pursue relief through an insurance claim or lawsuit.
What type of compensation can I get?
Usually, a plaintiff in an auto accident case will demand economic damages to reimburse them for tangible costs associated with their injury, such as hospital bills, lost income and rehabilitation expenses. You can also seek noneconomic damages under North Carolina law. This means that a court can award compensation for the pain and suffering you experience, any permanent scarring or disfigurement resulting from the crash, and the effect the accident had your ability to enjoy life.
What to do after a car accident
Even if your injuries are not life-threatening, the moments after a car accident can be very traumatic. If you’ve notified the necessary first responders and are able to gather key information, you can take steps that might help your potential legal claim. As long as immediate medical assistance is not required, taking photos at the scene and getting contact information for parties and witnesses will make the investigation process much easier.
