Our Experience & Resources Count

Whether you are driving on a city street, country road or busy highway in northeastern North Carolina, you face the risk of a car crash. According to N.C. Department of Transportation statistics, a combined average of nearly 3,000 auto accidents occur each year in Pasquotank, Camden, Dare, Currituck, Perquimans, Chowan and Gates counties. More than half of those wrecks result in injuries or death.

As Glover Law Firm reviews your case, we will focus on the cause of your crash, including whether it was the result of:

  • Speeding (including driving too fast in bad weather conditions such as ice, rain or fog)
  • Following too closely or passing where it’s not safe
  • Running through a red light, stop sign or yield sign
  • Failing to yield the right of way
  • Changing lanes without checking mirrors or using turn signals
  • Distractions (such as talking on a cell phone, texting, eating or drinking)
  • Drowsy or fatigued driving (including falling asleep while on the road)
  • Driving while impaired by alcohol, illegal drugs or prescription medications
  • Aggressive driving
  • Driver inexperience (which is especially common among newly licensed teen drivers)
  • Road defects (particularly if the accident occurred on a rural road)
  • Automotive defects (including features that can make a car prone to rollovers).

Glover Law Firm draws on years of experience and the expertise of highly qualified investigators and medical doctors and accident reconstruction experts to determine not only the cause of your car crash but also the extent and cause of your injuries.

Danny also knows how to navigate through complex insurance issues, such as collecting compensation through your family’s Uninsured Motorist (UM)/Underinsured Motorist (UIM) policies. We’ll work hard to make sure you are covered in a hit-and-run accident or in an automobile wreck caused by a driver who either has no insurance or has insurance that fails to pay for the entirety of your damages.

We are Dedicated to Helping Car Accident Victims

At Glover Law Firm our goal is to work hard to make sure you and your family members are fully compensated through a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. We will seek compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Physical and emotional pain and suffering.

We may also seek punitive damages to punish and deter especially reckless conduct.

Danny personally promises to keep you regularly updated about the progress of your case. Our attorney and staff are always available to answer your questions.

Transcript for the Hearing Impaired
Modified Transcript of “OBX Car Wreck Attorney” for the Hearing Impaired

I’m Danny Glover with Glover Law Firm in Elizabeth City, serving all of Northeastern North Carolina in the Outer Banks. Thank you for coming to my website. I hope you’re finding useful information about your car accident. If you have more specific questions, feel free to call me. (252) 299-5300 or you can email me at I’ll be happy to answer your questions. What I want to do in this video is take a few minutes just to walk you through the process after you’re injured in a wreck. You’re going to contact an attorney. What can you expect to happen at that point?

The first thing I want to do is I want to sit down and talk to you. Now, in the Outer Banks, we have a lot of tourists. You may live in Nebraska or Wisconsin or Canada or Europe. I can do it by video conference. I want to be face to face if at all possible so that I can see you. I can see your injuries. I can see how this is affecting you. I want to talk to you about the process at that point. The process most importantly of you getting better. What are your injuries? Did you have any of those problems before this wreck? If so, did they get worse during this wreck? Are these completely brand new problems arising solely from this wreck? I want to know those things. I want to make sure you’re telling your doctors all of those things. I want to make sure you’re getting the appropriate treatment so that again, first and foremost, you can get better.

Then I also want to make sure that we’re doing things the right way to set you up for the best and quickest possible settlement so that you can get all of this behind you and get back to your normal life. We’ll talk about how to handle health insurance and the interplay between health insurance and your medical providers who are treating you from a car wreck and then the car insurance. How do all those work together? We’ll talk through all of that. We’ll talk about you getting pictures of anything visible and keeping a photo log. As you get better, bumps and bruises turn different colors. Lacerations get better. Staple and stitch scars go away.

We need to be keeping a photo log as we go so that we can photo document everything that happened in your case from start to finish in case we need that to convince the adjuster or perhaps the judge and jury later as to the nature and extent of your injuries and why you’re entitled to as much money compensation as we say you are. We’ll talk about you keeping a log of your travel, to and from medical providers. A log of the time you missed from work, how much you’re losing in income from work as a result of this. How much leave time you’re burning through because of your injuries. If you’re self-employed, lost income claims can be extremely difficult because of the speculative nature and you just don’t know what you would have been doing in a month or two months.

We’ll figure out the best possible way to track that so that we can prove that to the insurance company or to the court later. We’ll talk about how I’m going to obtain all of your medical records. I’m going to pay all of the expenses to pursue your claim as we go. Now, I can’t pay your medical bills but in terms of gathering the evidence, obtaining necessary experts, I will pay those expenses as we go and then reimburse myself from the settlement. Then we’ll put together a game plan as to how best to set up your car accident claim so that we can get you the most money allowed to you by law for the injuries that you suffered in your car accident. Again, feel free to call me. Danny Glover at Glover Law Firm, (252) 299-5300 or again, you can email me at I’m here to help you.
