It’s one thing when a car accident involves minor bumps with minimal damages. Those types of situations are typically resolved by exchanging personal and insurance information. However, when a car accident results in serious or long-term injuries, all persons involved are placed in difficult and stressful positions, and that’s when a personal injury attorney may be necessary.

Automobile accidents present several issues to solve. 

Who is responsible for the collision? Who will be paying the damages? How will medical bills be paid? Is it possible for an insurance company to reimburse for lost wages?

These are complex questions, and victims may have trouble finding the right information and getting what they deserve without an attorney’s help.

If you’ve been injured in a car accident, you will need an attorney.

If you have been injured in a car accident in Sampson County, NC, or Duplin County, NC, Ludlum Law Firm’s personal injury lawyers are ready to step in. We want to get the most out of your injury claim, and that means investigating all factors.

The quickest way to get a claim settlement process moving is by notifying your insurance company as soon as possible after an accident. You’ll be assigned a claims adjuster that reviews several aspects, including:

  • Police report – can protect you in the event of a lawsuit.
  • Medical attention – if you visited the emergency room after the accident.
  • Pre-existing injuries – injuries becoming worse after the accident.
  • Witnesses – anybody outside of the parties involved that saw the accident occur.
  • Photographs – proof of injuries and/or damage.

A lot goes into negotiating settlements and a personal injury lawsuit. 

All this work and documentation will be the last thing you want to focus on after the physical and emotional stress of the accident. Let our lawyers do the legal work for you. We’ll obtain the necessary evidence to support your claim and prepare a settlement demand letter for the insurance company.

If we cannot settle, Ludlum Law Firm will fight for your rights at trial and persuade a jury that you are entitled to compensation. Let us take the burden off your shoulders so you can focus on recovering from your injuries.

If you’ve been injured in a car accident, don’t let fear or uncertainty keep you from filing your claim and seeking help. Under North Carolina’s Statute of Limitations, personal injury suits must be filed in court within three years. That may seem like a long time, but taking care of yourself and your rights immediately will get you the best results possible.

Car accidents and personal injury lawsuits are a tough, emotional time. At Ludlum Law Firm, our attorneys apply our 50 years of experience fighting for our clients so we can take the worry and stress out of your hands. Contact our Duplin County or Sampson County locations to schedule a visit with us.
