"Lawyers in Northeastern North Carolina and the OBX focus on setting the record straight in court, demanding fair compensation and holding the ‘at fault’ driver accountable."

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 sometimes 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.
Instead, they are merely looking to lowball your settlement offer and to pressure you, through almost any means necessary, into taking less for your injuries and claims than your case is worth.
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.
See, in North Carolina you have two options when you are hurt due to the carelessness or recklessness of someone else. You can either accept what the insurance company is willing to pay in terms of a voluntary settlement offer. Or you file a lawsuit and ask the court to determine the amount that is fair for your injuries and then force the insurance company to pay that fair amount by obtaining a money judgment against the person or company responsible for causing your injuries and pain and losses.
Since the goal of both the settlement claims process and future litigation are the same, i.e., to obtain a fair settlement for you, it is important that your lawyer begin the process of representing you by looking down the road at the finish line. So many lawyers will take your case with the idea of simply getting you a quick settlement, which is exactly what the insurance company wants and is hoping for. The insurance company then tries to take advantage of that fact and lowball you even more. Then, when you refuse to accept the unreasonable settlement offer, the lawyer quits your case because they don’t have expertise, experience or willingness to take the insurance company to court.
Attorney Danny Glover has probably litigated in northeastern North Carolina as many cases for his injured clients over the past 26 years than any other lawyer. This has led to a vast amount of experience and expertise in this field. It has also allowed him to develop a reputation among insurance companies, insurance defense attorneys and other injury lawyers that Danny Glover will not accept a lowball offer and he will fight in court for his clients. This is the reason so many other lawyers end up referring or sending the clients and cases to Glover Law Firm so that we can obtain the fair settlement or recovery the client deserves. It is also one of the reasons that Danny Glover was elected as President of the North Carolina Advocates for Justice, the leading professional organization for injury lawyers across the State of North Carolina.
"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."

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.
Attorney Danny Glover has handled numerous trucking collision cases over the past 26 years. Dump trucks dangerously coming out of construction areas or sand pits. Tractor-Trailers crossing the center line. Trucks going too fast…trucks going to slow in high speed zones. Distracted truck drivers. Truckers who exceed the maximum hours they are allowed to drive during a 24 hour period…truck drivers who don’t get the sleep they are required to have by law…truck drivers who are impaired by drugs or alcohol.
When handling truck cases, it is important to use expert witnesses of all kinds: accident reconstructionists; engineers; human factor experts; FMCSA and DOT Compliance experts; neurosurgeons; orthopedic surgeons; economists; future medical care consultants. At Glover Law Firm, we have established a vast network of the best experts necessary to help us present your best case and fight for your legal rights when the insurance company refuses to pay to you the fair settlement value of your case.
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
