Common Types of Car Accidents & Injuries

Car accidents can take many forms and even a slow-moving collision can cause life-long injuries to certain victims. Common types of injury causing car accidents include:

  • Rear-end collisions
  • Side impact
  • Multi-vehicle accidents
  • Lane change
  • Texting and driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Fatigued driving
  • Speeding
  • Hit and run

Your car accident injuries can be immediate or have a latent onset but the best thing you can do immediately following an accident is to seek any and all necessary medical attention. Not only does a medical diagnosis and treatment plan help you feel better faster, but it also provides essential medical documentation that forms the basis of your personal injury case with us. Some of the car accident injuries you might be dealing with include:

  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Head and neck injuries (including whiplash)
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Chest injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Burns

Another common injury most car accident victims suffer on some basic level are emotional issues. Post traumatic stress (PTSD) is a common temporary or lasting issue for many following the trauma of a major accident. This very real issue is something working with a professional can help you heal from, and also something we can help give you paid for as part of your overall settlement from the responsible party. For many, a winning car accident case not only provides much-needed funds but also a sense of closure and justice. We would love to get all those things for you.

How Much is My Car Accident Case Worth?

The value of your car accident depends on so many things specific to your case, your injuries and how much insurance coverage the responsible party has. Don’t rely on online settlement calculators to find out your case value—rely on your obligation free case evaluation with lawyers that know how to get you the most money possible and give you an accurate idea of your case value. Elements that go into the worth of your car accident include:

  • Nature and extent of your injuries
  • Impact car accident has had on your personal and professional life
  • Type of car accident
  • Insurance coverage limits
  • Number of defendants
  • Workers’ compensation

North Carolina car accidents are determined on a contributory negligence basis meaning that if it is determined you played a role in your accident, your ability to file a civil suit is denied. Because of this all or nothing civil liability standard, having an experienced legal team on your side is absolutely essential to defeating the attempts by opposing insurance companies on pitting liability on you—an all too common defense approach by insurance companies.

How Long Do You Have to File A Car Accident Claim?

How long do you have to file a car accident claim in NC? For most personal injury claims, you have three years from the date of the accident, and this is a deadline you do not want to miss.
