Cumberland County Personal Injury Attorneys
If a negligent driver hit and injured you in Cumberland County or Harnett County or elsewhere along Interstate 95, you need immediate legal help. You should not be suffering with a heavy burden of medical bills when you are unable to work because of someone else’s negligence.
In many instances, to recover outstanding medical bills, health care providers or insurance companies place a lien on an injured individual’s pending settlement or judgment. Our law firm is able to negotiate with medical and insurance providers in an effort to reduce the amount of a lien. We can handle every aspect of your case, including helping you apply for Social Security Disability benefits if your injuries prevent you from working.

Answers To Common Motor Vehicle Accident Questions
In the aftermath of a motor vehicle accident, injury victims and their families often have many questions. Here are a few common questions:
What do I need to do if I’m in a car accident?
The most important thing you can do after a collision is see a health care professional. Many accident victims do not feel symptoms right away, so seek medical care even if you think you are fine.
If you or someone you are with is able to, get contact information from the other driver and any witnesses to the accident. Also, have someone take pictures of your vehicle as soon as possible and before it is repaired. The old saying is true, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” As soon as you can, write down your memories about what happened, and keep notes about how you feel and what you did in the days and weeks following the accident. Documenting your personal aches and pain can help if you have to make a personal injury claim later on.
Who pays if I am injured in an auto accident or my car is damaged?
If you are not at fault and another party causes the accident and injury to you or your property, he or she is responsible for your damages, and the other driver’s liability insurance pays for your car damage and personal injuries. In North Carolina, there is a doctrine called contributory negligence that states if you were even partially at fault, you cannot recover damages.
My insurance company is offering me a settlement. Should I take it?
No one can answer that question without knowing the facts of your case which include: how the accident happened, who was at fault and the extent of all of your damages. Each case must be decided on an individual basis. This is not a question that can be answered with a generic “yes” or “no.”
How long does a personal injury claim take to resolve?
Personal injury claims may take several years to resolve, based on the complexity of the case. Patience is necessary in order to obtain the best results.
What should I do if I did not feel hurt at the scene but experienced pain afterward?
The sooner you receive medical attention for any injury, the better. It is not an unusual phenomenon for pain to develop sometime after you leave the scene of an accident; however, long delays in seeking proper medical attention are inadvisable.
