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.
I first met Allen after he was recommended to me by a friend, and I couldn't be happier with the service that he provided. He demonstrated a unique attention to detail in my case, as well as expressed a genuine interest in me as a person. Through a great deal of hard work, Allen was able to appeal my case and get all of my charges dismissed. I couldn't be more grateful for him and his assistant, Sherry, for their legal and personal support during such a difficult time. Hiring Allen was the greatest decision I've ever made, and I would recommend Allen to anyone seeking exceptional legal representation.
Allen is the best lawyer I've ever met! His character is genuine, and there is a warmth about him that makes you feel so comfortable. If you ever get into a situation with DWI, and feel truly remorseful for what happened, HIRE him for the BEST chance possible. I previously spent 6000$ on an attorney who just didn't feel like they really gave me the personal care that I needed. They were only in it for the money. After hearing raving reviews about Allen, I fired my lawyer and took a leap of faith with Allen. Even though I had to pay two separate times and could not get a refund for the previous lawyer, IT WAS WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!! He won my case with dignity, respect, and care and I am forever thankful to him for this.
