How Our Legal Team Can Help With Your Morganton Spinal Cord Injury Case
Whether you are filing an insurance claim or a personal injury lawsuit, we can help. Legal cases can get complex, especially when they involve multiple parties or large corporations. We can advocate for you and seek the best outcome for you.
We Can Investigate Your Case
First, we will investigate your accident to identify the liable parties. Sometimes, employers will share liability for their employees’ negligence. For example, we may be able to pursue compensation from a trucking company if you suffered injuries in a commercial truck accident.
We Can Demonstrate the Negligence of Another Party
After we identify the liable parties, we can begin building a case against them. This includes proving the four elements of negligence:
- Someone owed you a duty of care to keep you reasonably safe.
- They breached that duty, such as by violating a traffic law.
- This breach directly caused your accident.
- The accident resulted in your spinal cord injury and financial losses.
We Can Handle the Paperwork for Your Claim or Lawsuit
When we take on your case, we will handle all the necessary paperwork so that you can focus on your health. We can also work to meet the filing deadline for your lawsuit, which is generally three years, according to G.S. § 1-52.
Still, the sooner you call us, the better. We can begin working on your case immediately to streamline the legal process.
We Can Negotiate With an Insurer
We can protect you from bad faith tactics an insurer may use to undervalue or deny your case. We can also negotiate a fair settlement and field offers to see if an insurer will compensate you for ongoing accident-related damages. You don’t want to be left footing the bill for someone else’s negligence.
You can support your case by following through with your doctor-prescribed treatment. If you forgo or delay treatment, an insurer may use that against you, claiming you contributed to your losses.
We Can Represent You at Trial
Even if you file a lawsuit, your case may be settled before going to trial. Still, we are on your side all the way. If necessary, we can represent you at trial and seek a fair court-awarded offer there.
