By its very legal definition, negligence is not an “accident” or “accidental.” There is no such thing as a car accident or accidental injury or death caused by the negligence of another.
Given the sometimes life-changing consequences associated with personal injury claims or damages resulting from a wreck or collision, our law firm demands accountability. We insist the insurance company provides fair compensation under the law.
While it may be common to call it an “accident,” that actually literally adds insult to injury.
First, the tortfeasor, the person legally responsible for the wreck, by their failure to follow the Rules of the Road, caused your injury or loss. Second, rather than accept full responsibility for hurting you and making things right, they seek to shirk their culpability by calling it an “accident.”
If you were injured due to the negligence of another, that was no accident. Not paying attention or the failure to maintain a safe stopping distance or speeding or even drunk driving are all intentional acts.
Just like no one “accidentally” gets drunk and drives, people who fail to follow the traffic laws in North Carolina make a conscious decision: The rules don’t apply to me.
“Lawyers in North-Eastern North Carolina and the OBX focus on setting the record straight in court, demanding fair compensation and holding the ‘at fault’ driver accountable.” – Danny Glover
One of the more common type of insurance claims in North Carolina involves collisions between passenger vehicles. Insurance carriers prefer to call them an MVA for “motor vehicle accident” or MIST Minor Injury Soft Tissue case or a “fender bender.”
All those terms are related to burden shifting, shirking responsibility, and the perpetual effort to avoid paying damages for legitimate wreck cases. Make no mistake, the insurance adjustor isn’t interested in what’s “fair.” They’re not looking out for you or your best interests.
If they can settle a legal claim for less than it’s worth, even if their insured is 100% at fault, they save the insurance company money. They avoid paying for medical bills, continued care, or treatment, even you deserve full compensation and restitution for damages.
That’s the job of the insurance adjustor: Avoid legal liability, limit or eliminate paying damages, and turn a profit. That’s why they’re in a rush to settle. The sooner they can clear the claim, the more likely they’ll save money in the long run.
While it may have only taken a second to change your life, it may take years to recover completely, if that’s even possible. Bad decisions and bad choices have consequences.
When it comes to “car accidents” in North Carolina and insurance adjustors, they profit from your losses, unless you demand a fair settlement and back up that demand with a willingness to take them to court.
“There are times when the most powerful words a plaintiff’s Outer Banks personal injury lawyer can say are ‘We’ll see you in court.’” – Danny Glover, Accident AttorneyTrucking Accidents
The average automobile weighs in the range of 5,000 pounds. 18 Wheelers on the other hand regularly tip the scales at 80,000 pounds. Collisions involving semi-truck or other commercial vehicle, can easily result in catastrophic losses. It’s a matter of physics.
Given “truck accidents” in North Carolina often take place on interstate highways and at high speeds, the chances of a minor injury or limited damages are often slim. The forces associated with a truck vs car or truck vs motorcycle accident are truly remarkable.
Indeed, legal claims for such matters may ultimately be brought for Wrongful Death, Permanent Disability, Disfigurement, and long-term care.Motorcycle Accidents and Bicycle Accidents
Vehicles with two wheels rarely fare well against the weight of a car or truck. Neither bicycles nor motorcycles have the same level protection as that of a full-size automobile. If hit, the damages and injuries sustained by cyclists, things like road rash, broken bones, and TBI Traumatic Brain Injury are significant and often disfiguring.Danny Glover – Outer Banks Accident Lawyer
