Choosing an Accident Lawyer in Kill Devil Hills

Kill Devil Hills, NC Looking for an accident lawyer in Dare County?

You've come to the right place!

On this webpage, we will discuss some tips on how to choose a lawyer who fits your needs.

It is important to find someone who has experience with personal injury cases and who knows the ins and outs of the legal system. That normally comes with years of practical litigation experience.

Do I Need a Lawyer for an Accident Case?

No Button If you were not at fault for the car accident and you are planning on filing a personal injury claim, we think it's smart to hire an accident lawyer.

The insurance company will have its own team of claims adjusters working to diminish the value of your claim or deny it entirely.

One common "defense" asserted by adjusters in North Carolina for car accident claims is Contributory Negligence.

An experienced lawyer will know how to deal with the insurance company and will also be familiar with the court system in North Carolina.

What is Contributory Negligence in North Carolina?

Under North Carolina law, if you are even partially responsible for your own injuries, you may be able not to recover money for your damages and injuries caused by another driver.

What is a Statute of Limitations?
For example, if the other driver ran a stop sign, but failed to slow down to avoid the wreck, the insurance company could argue that you were also negligent and therefore contributed to your own injuries.

In order to prove that you were not contributorily negligent, your accident lawyer will need to gather evidence and build a strong case on your behalf.

When Is the Best Time to Hire a Lawyer?

Cell Phone - Legal Advice The best time to hire an accident lawyer is as soon as possible after the accident.

An attorney can help you gather evidence, contact witnesses, and file a personal injury claim with the insurance company.

If you wait too long, crucial evidence may be lost or destroyed, and witnesses may no longer be available to testify on your behalf.

Experience Counts

We think the first thing you should consider when choosing a personal injury lawyer for you or a family member is their experience.

  • Do they have experience handling cases like yours?
  • How many years have they been helping people in Kill Devil Hills NC?
  • Have they tried cases?
  • What types of settlements have they achieved in the past?
  • Have they held any leadership positions in the legal profession?
  • Have they received any awards or personal accolades for their work as an attorney?
