Your Advocate Following A North Carolina Car Accident

Car accidents can change lives. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident that was caused by someone else's negligence, you should not suffer financially as well. Unfortunately, insurance companies do not always agree with that sentiment. At The Law Office of Christopher G. Lewis, P.A., I advocate for injured parties and work to maximize the amount they recover.

You have a limited amount of time to file after an accident. It is important to take action as soon as possible following your accident in order to preserve key evidence and seek proper treatment.

In North Carolina, an individual who is injured due to someone else's negligence may recover compensation through a personal injury lawsuit. The injured party may seek compensation for:

  • "Reasonable and necessary" medical expenses
  • Future medical or rehabilitative expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future earning power
  • Property loss
  • Physical and emotional pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium and loss of enjoyment of life

In some cases, family members may be able to recover compensation for loss of care, love and companionship. If a family member is killed in an accident, you may be able to recover compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit.

An Injury In North Carolina Is Not A Lottery Ticket

It is important to work with an attorney who is experienced in car accidents.

I have extensive experience working the other side of these cases because I was a lawyer for many years with an insurance defense firm. That insight allows me to properly value personal injury cases and provide the records, reports and other data that an insurance representative needs to approve your settlement.
