Every year thousands of innocent people are killed and tens of thousands more are seriously injured in accidents caused by the negligence of others. Personal Injury accidents can include, but are not limited to, motor vehicle accidents, slip and fall accidents, dog bites, bicycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, boating accidents, airplane accidents, construction accidents, wrongful death, child molestation or sexual abuse, assault and intentional injury, premises liability, and injuries caused by defective products.
If you are injured or lost a loved one due to the negligence of another, you may recover monetary damages from all responsible parties for medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, disfigurement or disability.
Properly presenting a case to an insurance company or to a court requires careful preparation and a thorough knowledge of the law. An experienced personal injury attorney in Raleigh can be of great help in obtaining full compensation for an injured person. Remember that the insurance companies are represented by professionals who will even try to discourage injured people from protecting their rights by seeking legal counsel.
The best time to seek assistance is immediately after the accident, before the witnesses disappear or forget and before crucial evidence is lost due to the passage of time. Photographs or videotape recordings need to be made, evidence, records and reports need to be gathered and all witnesses need to be identified, located and interviewed as soon as possible. Often injured people need immediate advice and assistance in obtaining referrals for medical treatment or in obtaining replacements for transportation or other damaged property.
