A Strong Advocate for Car Accident Victims
Another driver's carelessness can turn your life upside down in an instant. The pain and financial expense following a car accident can be overwhelming. You don't have to go through this on your own. Our lawyers will work hard to get you the medical care and financial support you need, so you can focus on healing from your injuries.
Our lawyers will immediately set to work investigating the cause of the accident and collecting important evidence from the accident scene. We will take photos and conduct interviews with witnesses. We also frequently work with accident re-constructionists who will show a jury exactly how your accident occurred and who was at fault.
Under North Carolina's contributory negligence laws, if you were even 1 percent at fault for your accident, you will not be able to recover any monetary damages. The insurance companies use these laws to their advantage to reduce or eliminate the compensation they have to pay you. Our experienced Asheville car accident attorneys are intimately familiar with these laws and will advocate on your behalf to get you the compensation you need.
If the other motorist was uninsured, underinsured, did not stop or left the scene of the accident, our attorneys will help you get compensation through your uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM) coverage. Additionally, if you feel that your insurance company is acting in bad faith, we will complete a full investigation and let you know if you have a case.
