Helping Victims Recover Just Compensation

With the enormous amount of foot traffic in uptown Charlotte, the risk of being struck by an inattentive driver skyrockets. Ranging from broken bones or concussions to head, neck and spinal cord injuries, these types of accidents can have permanent, life-altering effects.

The Insurance Company Will Try To Shift The Blame Onto You
North Carolina is a contributory negligence state, which means, if you are found to be even one percent at fault in causing an accident, you are not allowed to recover damages.
After an accident, the insurance company will do everything it can to place the blame on you to avoiding paying a claim. We’re here to make sure you’re treated fairly.
As your lawyers, we will carry out an investigation of your bicycle injuries/accident or pedestrian incident, and work with accident reconstructionists and other industry experts to piece together what actually happened. We will also consult with your doctor and other medical professionals to get a clear idea of the full extent of your injuries.
Oftentimes, the insurance adjusters will try to swoop in with a quick, easy settlement before you have a chance to determine just how serious your injuries really are. If the adjuster calls and starts asking you questions about the accident, what led to the incident and your injuries, DO NOT offer any information. When you hire us, we will deal directly with the insurance company so you don’t have to, which allows you to focus on your recovery, not the insurance company’s games and gimmicks.
Control Your Claim
Depending on the circumstances and what you want to do with your case, we will negotiate with the opposition to reach a timely, just settlement for maximum compensation. If reaching a settlement is not in your best interests, we can put our courtroom experience to work by taking your case to trial.
We want to ensure you fully understand your options as we move forward with your case. We will outline what to expect, offer advice and allow you to make informed decisions regarding the direction we take.
