Your Case May Be Worth More Than What the Insurance Company Offers
Insurance companies representing the negligent party are powerful corporations that may try to put profits over people. Their goal is to pay victims as little as they possibly can. So, insurance carriers may attempt to offer a low settlement amount with victims early in their cases.
Unfortunately, this point may occur before you fully comprehend the scope and depth of your losses and future outlook. If an insurance adjuster contacts you, you do not have to admit blame.
If you hire an Asheville car accident lawyer, they will handle these negotiations on your behalf. Doing so allows you to concentrate on your total health and well-being. Farmer & Morris Law, PLLC will evaluate the insurance company’s offer to determine if we can obtain additional compensation for the following losses:
- Medical expenses
- Future healthcare costs
- Lost wages and future earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Wrongful death benefits
- Punitive damages
- And more
If a car wreck causes loss of life, the personal representative of the deceased may file a wrongful death claim. While money does not bring your loved one back to life, it does hold at-fault parties liable for their actions.
Wrongful death claims allow you to seek restitution for the emotional and financial injuries you suffered—including mental anguish, loss of companionship, funeral/burial expenses, and more. Farmer & Morris Law, PLLC will pursue compensation for these losses while providing empathetic and compassionate understanding.
There Are Civil Deadlines That Can Affect Your Case
Car accident injury victims and surviving family members have a time limit to file a lawsuit against negligent parties in North Carolina. This cutoff date is also known as the statute of limitations. When this date passes, you may not recover compensation for harm sustained. There are few exclusions to this rule.
In general, the North Carolina statute of limitations for personal injury claims is three years from the date of your injury under G.S. § 1-52. In fatal accidents, surviving family members generally have up to two years to file.
However, the deadlines may change depending on specific circumstances, such as matters involving minor-aged victims and claims against the government. Due to these variations, anyone with a claim may want to obtain a free case evaluation to establish what time limits apply.
You do not have to let negligent parties get away with what they have done. It never hurts to inquire about your legal rights.
Determining Fault in Your Car Accident Injury Claim
An investigation of your crash is necessary to determine who is at fault. While the driver is typically the negligent party, the liability may also include less-obvious individuals, such as manufacturers and municipalities.
Farmer & Morris Law, PLLC will thoroughly investigate your claim while preserving evidence as we discover it. You do not have to fight your personal injury or wrongful death case alone when you hire our legal team.
You Have Options if the At-Fault Driver Blames You
North Carolina is one of just a very few states to follow the rule of contributory negligence in personal injury cases. Under the contributory negligence doctrine, you cannot collect a civil award from an accident if you are in any way responsible for causing it.
Due to this harsh standard, working with a lawyer becomes even more vital. We have the knowledge to fight back against accusations and will stand by your side throughout the entire claims process.
