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.
What are the most common causes of auto accidents?
While every accident is different and some may have multiple causes, the following are the leading causes of traffic accidents in North Carolina and South Carolina:
- Drunk driving
- Distracted driving
- Defective auto parts
- Dangerous or defective roads
- Heavy weather
What can you do to help with my insurance claim?
Your auto accident lawyer at Crumley Roberts can handle all communication 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 of 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.
