Why You Need a Knowledgeable and Skilled Motorcycle Accident Attorney
Unfortunately, North Carolina is one of only four states that still follow the law of pure contributory negligence. What this means is that victims who are partially at-fault for their injuries, even just 1% at fault, may be barred from obtaining financial compensation. The out-dated rule of contributory negligence is commonly used as a means for insurance carriers to escape liability. We are familiar with North Carolina’s contributory negligence laws and know that there are certain exceptions that may apply even if you were somewhat at-fault.
Additionally, many victims believe that the negligent party’s insurance company must compensate them, as a matter of right, for the damage and injuries. Unfortunately, insurance companies are concerned with their own financial interest and often look for ways to avoid paying victims. This is where we can help. We have experience dealing with insurance companies and the legal process.
