I was involved in a rear-end traffic accident in Wilmington, North Carolina? The accident was not my fault. Do I need a lawyer?

You should have a free consultation with an experienced injury lawyer and then decide.

Injury cases involve three issues:  (1) Liability (2) Damages and (3) Money.  Under the above-described circumstances, the insurance company may accept liability.  An insurance company admitting liability is like an employer saying you are hired. It is better than the alternative but it does not completely answer the question.

The next question is how much?  They have greater information and experience.  This is what they do.  They have an advantage and they will use it to the benefit of their employer, the insurance company.  If they agree to pay the claim but only pay pennies on the dollar, then you are in trouble.  You need your own claims representative.

Also, you will need to consider future medical bills, permanent injuries, loss of income, your own auto insurance policy, your health insurance plan, Medicare, Medicaid or Tri-Star, liens on the insurance proceeds.  We can maximize your recovery.  We can navigate dangerous insurance issues for you.  We can put the most money possible into your pocket.

Sometimes the mistakes people make early in auto injury cases while trying to “do it themselves” cannot be undone and cause irreparable damage.  In the years I have been representing injured people, I have not met one person who would have been better off if they had not called.  I have met hundreds who wish they had called.
