Injuries caused by car accidents can have a devastating impact on your ability to enjoy life and support yourself. When you have been injured in an auto accident, you will need experienced counsel to help you get what you need to help you and your family through this difficult time. Physical personal injury may include loss of limbs, permanent or disfiguring scars and temporary or permanent disabilities. Mental harm may include emotional trauma, mental anguish, embarrassment, loss of enjoyment of life’s activities or nightmares.
The insurance company that will want to settle with you knows what you are entitled to – but you do not. You need someone on your side to make sure that you get what you are entitled to. We can do that.
As the injured party or a grieving family member, your mounting problems may include increasing medical bills, lost wages, temporary or permanent disability, scarring, disfigurement, and losing your ability to enjoy your life and loved ones. The law gives you rights and we fight to protect those rights. To recover what you deserve you need a team capable of proving that your injuries were caused by someone’s negligent or reckless behavior. As attorneys who understand the law, the North Carolina court system and how to try your case in a court room, we can fight for you and help you recover what you deserve.
The law allows juries or judges to award compensation, or damages, for many types of losses that result from injuries. These awards may include present and future medical expenses, partial or total disability, past and future lost wages, compensation for scarring, mental and physical suffering, property damage, and other losses that are recognized by law. You have the right to know what you are entitled to and have someone fight to help you get it.
You may also have the right to recover damages to punish someone for reckless behavior. Punitive damages are awarded to help stop the guilty party from repeating the conduct in the future when the defendant was reckless. The law allows you to make an example of the person that wronged you so that others will not engage in such conduct either.
An experienced attorney at Glenn, Mills, Fisher & Mahoney, P.A. will be your advocate with the insurance companies and others resposible for compensating you. involved Do not communicate with the other party’s insurance representatives until you have consulted an attorney. You need to understand your rights before you can understand what you are entitled to. The attorneys have experience in analyzing all of the potential sources of recovery, which may include compensation available from your own insurance policy, or the insurance policy of a family member.
If you have been injured in an auto accident in North Carolina, contact Glenn, Mills, Fisher & Mahoney, P.A., and discuss your case. In all cases involving auto accidents we will have an initial consultation with you to determine the strength of your claim without charge.
