Injured in a Car Accident? We Help Take Away the Worry.
If you or a family member was recently injured in a car accident, you might be wondering how you’re going to pay for expenses like the damage to your car or your medical bills, especially if you are unable to work due to your injuries. In a time like this, you need a North Carolina car accident lawyer. Crumley Roberts has helped many people just like you get through this difficult time. Let our warm and friendly staff turn your frustration and uncertainty into happiness and confidence.
We Deal with the Insurance Company So You Don’t Have To
Our commitment to those involved in auto accidents is to take away their worry. We know this time can be riddled with concerns over your health, your car, your job, and what all of this is going to cost. We encourage you to contact us rather than dealing with the insurance company on your own. Not only can this be stressful, but the insurance company may not have your best interests at heart. While their goal is to offer you a low settlement, our goal is to secure what’s fair for you.
By thoroughly investigating your claim and gathering evidence that shows medical expenses, lost earnings and other losses related to the accident, we can pursue the fair value of your claim. We can accurately evaluate a settlement offer to determine whether to accept or to continue negotiating for a better amount.
How long does an insurance company have to settle a claim in North Carolina?
Insurance companies in North Carolina must investigate and take action on the claim from the insured in 30 days. That 30-day period starts when the claim is received by the insurer or the processor.
Our team can swiftly assist with the filing of the claim so that you and your family can receive the compensation deserved at the earliest opportunity.
When you work with a North Carolina car accident lawyer at our firm, your interests will be placed first. You will be kept informed, and we will always be available to you. Our phone lines are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to address whatever questions or concerns you may have.

Filing an Auto Accident Claim
Filing an car accident claim can be complex, and the challenges only increase in the face of unscrupulous practices by some insurance providers who may attempt to pay the smallest settlement possible to protect their interests.
There are a few primary ways in which we use our legal experience and knowledge to handle car accident claims:
- Ideally, we will handle all communication with the insurance provider, for you. We can also advise you on what to say and what not to say when dealing with the insurance company to avoid unintentionally harming your chances at a fair settlement.
- We will work with our in-house investigators to determine exactly what caused your accident.
- We will gather evidence that shows how and why your accident occurred if the other party tries to lay blame on your shoulders.
We will gather all evidence that shows how much your claim should be worth.
This may include:
- Medical bills and medical records;
- Auto repair estimates and bills;
- Paystubs and tax returns; and
- Receipts for medication, auto parts, medical supplies, and other relevant expenses.
- We will send a demand letter to the insurance company that lists these expenses and losses and that requests a fair settlement on your behalf.
- If the insurance company sends a counteroffer, we will review it and try to negotiate the best possible settlement.
- Upon receiving a fair settlement, we will process this payment and give you your money.

After an auto accident, you probably have numerous questions.

What are the most important steps to take immediately after an accident?
Remain at the scene (unless you are in need of emergency medical care) to exchange contact and insurance information with the other driver. Take pictures and gather information at the scene. Get the contact information of any witnesses who saw what occurred. Seek medical attention. Talk to an attorney as soon as possible, before you sign anything or make formal statements. Taking these steps can help to protect your ability to seek maximum compensation.
Do I have a case?
It’s common for those involved in auto accidents to be unsure if they have a legal case. If you’re unsure whether your accident qualifies, consider these two questions:
- Were you injured in the accident?
- Was the accident at least partially caused by another person’s negligence?
If “yes” is the answer to both questions, we encourage you to contact Crumley Roberts because the best way to determine if your accident qualifies is to speak with an experienced attorney.
What can you do to help with my insurance claim?
Your North Carolina car accident lawyer at Crumley Roberts can handle all communications with the insurance company and can properly file your claim with supporting documentation and evidence, to help you pursue a fair settlement. This can help you avoid a delayed settlement or unfair offer that will not cover all your losses.
When can I expect to receive a settlement?
The answer to this question will vary dramatically depending on the insurance company and how willing they are to work with us in negotiating a fair settlement amount. In every case, we will work closely with you to protect your best interests as we seek maximum compensation in a timely manner.
What steps should I take after a car accident?
There are several steps you should take immediately following a car accident to protect your rights and to help secure your best chance of recovering the compensation you need. First, you must ensure that you and any other injured parties receive emergency care. This is your first priority. Then, report your accident to the police and obtain a copy of the report. Take photos or video of the accident scene and of all the injuries suffered. In addition, obtain contact information for any witnesses. Additionally, you should avoid making posts to your social media accounts. This could undermine and cause damage to your claim.
Who is At Fault in a North Carolina Accident?
In some states, the driver deemed “at fault” or mostly at fault will pay for the damage of the other vehicles involved. In North Carolina, the state uses “contributory negligence” to determine who pays what amount after an accident. Under this law, anyone who contributed to the accident’s cause is unable to receive compensation.
Based on this strict law, you may assume that North Carolina is a no-fault state, but it is actually an at-fault state. The person responsible for the accident will be responsible for paying damages to the other party or parties involved.
