It depends on the facts of your potential case. To be honest, some people may not need a lawyer. If you or your loved one was hurt, but the injury wasn't catastrophic, you're able to return to work and there's no permanent affect from the accident, then you could probably deal with the insurance adjuster on your own. Our firm focuses on catastrophic, life-altering physical injuries where someone likely suffered extensive damages. This is because an insurance adjuster is more likely to drag their feet and attempt to minimize the exposure of the insurance company to a large claim. This is the situation where an experienced North Carolina personal injury attorney is most useful to you and your loved ones.
