2020 is fast approaching.  And with that come New Year’s Resolutions.PERSONAL INJURY LAWYERS

Was 2019 a good year?  What things could be better in 2020?  Are there issues in your life that remain unsettled or are a hassle?

It seems everyone today is focusing on balance.  Starting the year with fewer worries and sources of frustration makes sense.

There may be a type of insurance coverage you have forgotten or didn’t even know you had.  Outer Banks lawyers, especially those who handle personal injury claims involving wrecks, may refer to it as Medical Payments Coverage or “Med Pay.”Medical Payments Coverage

Med Pay is intended to pay for necessary and reasonable medical expenses.

It may also include terms of coverage for funeral expenses and the costs for treatment up to the policy limits.  The most common amounts purchased in North Carolina tend to be in the range of $1,000 to $10,000.

It doesn’t matter whether you were involved in a minor bump-up or serious accident.  Everyone wants to be treated fairly. That sometimes requires retaining a personal injury lawyer.  What to expect when hiring a lawyer

You may have thought, “I can handle this myself.  Why would I need an attorney? Isn’t it straight forward?”

All too often people find how difficult it can be to navigate the legal system.  If insurance adjusters were always fair and reasonable, we wouldn’t have much to do as accident lawyers – Danny Glover, OBX Accident Lawyer 

Why was my insurance claim denied?Everything seemed clear.  The person who caused the wreck took full responsibility and even apologized.  My medical bills were reasonable.  Why was my insurance claim denied?

It happens. . .a lot.  Despite clear liability, insurance adjustors in North Carolina regularly deny valid claims.

There’s a reason for that:  The NC insurance laws make it worthwhile to deny claims.

How does NC accident insurance work?  Who pays if I was hurt in North Carolina?  

by Danny Glover, OBX Accident Attorney and Outer Bank Personal Injury Lawyer

Not having enough accident insurance can present quite a problem.  That is especially true if you are the one who caused the car accident (OBX lawyers call that “at fault” or “legal liability”) and are subject to claims for negligence in North Carolina.

Where do I file an insurance claim?  Can I sue for an out of state accident?

By Danny Glover Jr, Elizabeth City NC Car Accident Lawyer, Trucking Accident, and OBX Motorcycle Accident Attorney

If you were involved in an “accident” in North Carolina, normally that is the state where a legal claim for damages would be made.  While there are certain exceptions, a good general rule of thumb is this:

After an OBX wreck, what happens to my car?  Who pays for vehicle damages?  Am I required to get my car fixed after an accident?

One of the more immediate concerns after an Outer Banks car accident is dealing with getting your car repaired.  Even with a rental, which may be an option in some instances, it takes time to review the damages and schedule work to be performed.  It also may take more than one shop, especially if there is substantial frame damage, bodywork, and the need for painting.

While a lot of focus is understandably placed on personal injuries, medical care, and outstanding medical bills, lawyers also provide legal representation for property damages, vehicle repair, valuation of the loss, and depreciation after a wreck.
