Personal Injury Attorney in Wilmington NC
When You Need an Attorney for an Auto Accident call Bain and Rodzik
Insurance companies frequently handle routine car accident claims, the majority of which involves just property damage. However, accidents involving serious forms of injury often require assistance that only a personal injury attorney can provide. In these situations, an injury lawyer can help determine your rights and facilitate any claims you may have to compensate greater than the initial settlement. They include the following:
- The insurance company won't pay the full cost of property damage, medical expenses, lost income, psychological pain and lost prospects. Many of these types of claims are made against insurance companies in no-fault states.
- The insurance company delays settling a claim. Each state has a statute of limitations for filing personal injury claims, so beware of allowing insurance claims to drag on too long.
- The insurance company denies a claim (Sometimes the insurance company of the other party involved in the accident will claim their insured was not at fault or that the insured's policy did not cover the accident.)
- The party at fault does not have insurance.
You also should consider hiring a personal injury attorney when a government entity denies a claim, allowing a personal injury lawsuit to be filed

Compensation for Car Accidents
Receiving compensation usually means having your property repairs, medical expenses, lost income, physical and psychological pain and, if applicable; lost prospects paid for by the negligent party or parties. Insurance adjustors and juries typically use standard formulas to come up with a dollar value for car accident settlements.
No-fault insurance laws affect settlements in some states. In general, these laws prevent injury claims and lawsuits from being filed in trivial accidents. While they usually guarantee immediate insurance payment for medical expenses and lost wages, many other expenses are not covered. If you have been the victim of a car accident in a no-fault insurance state and have not been fully compensated for your losses, a lawyer can help determine if you are eligible for additional compensation.
Handling Auto Accident Claims in North Carolina
While the insurance company should pay you a lump sum for all expenses relating to the accident, in many cases it is not enough. As an accident victim, you have legal rights that entitle you to compensation if you can establish that the accident was caused by the recklessness or negligence of another. At our firm, we can help to establish that another party was at fault for the accident and thus is liable for paying damages. Our main objective is to help you recover the compensation needed for medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and mental anguish. If a drunk driver was responsible for causing your accident and subsequent injuries, you may be entitled to punitive damages which will go beyond the usual compensation for injuries, so make sure to let our attorney know if this applies to you during your initial consultation.
