Insurance issues can be very complex for passengers who are injured in an auto crash or trucking accident. You may have a claim against the driver of the other vehicle or the driver of the car you were in, depending on who was at fault. In cases where multiple people are at fault, you may have a legal claim against both drivers.
At the North Carolina law firm of Powers Law Firm, our lawyers will serve as advocates to guide you through the complex medical, financial and insurance issues you will face. Among the services we perform:
- We handle all claims paperwork and negotiations with the insurance company so you can focus on healing.
- We handle all medical bills and claims.
- We ensure that current and future medical treatment needs have been identified so you receive adequate compensation to pay for the care you need.
- We document your abilities to work so that you can be properly compensated for current and future loss of wages if you’ve suffered a serious injury.
The aftermath of a car accident is a very stressful time for the passengers who were injured. As a passenger, the decisions you make can have a long-lasting impact on your life. You should never allow an insurance company to pressure you into accepting a settlement that is not in your best interest. Having a lawyer who can manage your passenger injury claim and negotiate with the insurance company can be very helpful.
Under North Carolina law, family members have the right to sue other family members for injuries suffered as a passenger in a car accident. Many people are reluctant to file a claim against a father, mother, brother, sister or other relative. However, you may incur significant ongoing medical expenses, chronic pain and wage loss from your passenger injury that insurance will not cover or will cover only minimally. When a car accident involves a family member who is at fault, our lawyers can be aggressive with the insurance company and compassionate with your family members.
We are eager to serve people who suffer car passenger injuries. We offer free attorney consultations on the phone, in the office, or in your home or the hospital if you are unable to travel. We are accessible 24 hours a day through our office phone at 704-342-4357. You can also schedule an appointment by completing our simple contact form.
