Experienced Lawyers Protecting Your Rights After A Car Accident
The Empty Promises Of Insurance Companies
Personal Injury · Wrongful Death · Motor Vehicle Wrecks/Collisions
At the Knox Law Center, our duty as lawyers is to help you get the recovery that is best for you. With offices in Charlotte and Denver, we represent motor vehicle accident victims throughout North Carolina. We also represent families who lose loved ones in fatal accidents. Our lawyers provide a free initial consultation. Contact us to discuss your case.
Under our contingency fee arrangement, we will not charge you unless we win.
Contributory Negligence In Auto Accident Cases
North Carolina is a contributory negligence state. This means that if the other driver’s insurance company is able to show that you were even 1 percent at fault for the accident, then you will not be able to recover any compensation for damages such as medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. For example, if an insurance adjustor can get you to agree that you were speeding, even just a little over the limit, that may be the end of your case, no matter how much at fault the other side was.
Our job as your attorneys is to preserve your rights to compensation. By law in North Carolina, the other side’s insurance adjustor is not allowed to talk with you once you tell him or her that you are represented by a lawyer.
Dealing With Complex Insurance Issues
Our lawyers have experience in dealing with complex insurance issues such as MedPay, stackable coverage (which enables you to combine insurance from different vehicles), and uninsured and underinsured drivers coverage. We will also advise you on how to obtain medical coverage from your health insurance, Medicaid, or Medicare while your legal case is in process. We understand how to deal with ERISA and issues of subrogation to minimize or eliminate the amount you must maximize your bottom line.
If you have suffered catastrophic injuries, our lawyers will hire medical experts and life-care planners to make sure that we identify all of your long-term needs before we attempt to settle your case. If you are on Medicaid, we will help create a special-needs trust for your lawsuit recovery to maintain your eligibility for Medicaid payments.
Free Attorney Consultation
Attorney Frances Knox helped my family in providing much needed legal documents. She was very prompt, knowledgeable and went well out of her way to help us. She provided excellent legal services and was very congenial and easy to work with throughout the process. I highly recommend her as an attorney.
You can get know better than this firm. No doubt about them being at the top lawyers nation wide. If you are in the Charlotte area you cannot get better. After being turned down by other firms Ms. Knox took the case and came back as a winner. Those guys who have their adds on the trains and bus here could not even stand in the same room with these attorneys. They make sure you are comfortable mentally and physically. Just let them do their job and they will get the job done. The best yes they are and that is a fact. Thank you Ms. Knox for being the person you are. Even when i lost faith in the case you held fast. Thank you over and over. Happy client.
Eddie Knox is a local legend and has probably forgotten more about the law then most people will ever learn.
