Why Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?
After suffering a serious injury, you may be tempted to work solely with the insurance company in order to receive a settlement as soon as possible. Unfortunately, the insurance company is not on your side. They put their expensive defense attorneys and extensive resources to work on disproving your claim in order to minimize the amount of compensation they have to pay out. Having a personal injury lawyer on your side who is experienced and formidable can help you receive a much higher settlement than you could have received on your own. A higher settlement, or jury verdict if the case proceeds to trial, means more of your injury-related expenses covered so that you can get back to the life you want sooner.
When Should I Contact An Attorney?
Typically, the laws of North Carolina allow victims or their family members three years to file a lawsuit for personal injury or wrongful death damages. However, it is best to take quick action so that your attorney can collect evidence and witnesses can be located that support your claim. There is no need to wait. A Raleigh personal injury attorney from our firm offers a free initial consultation so you can learn about the possible legal merits of your claim.
