A car accident can be one of the most traumatic experiences in a person’s life. Dealing with an at-fault driver’s pushy automobile insurance company is often as difficult as the physical recovery itself. To ease the stress caused by negotiating with the insurance company, and to increase your chances of recovering fair compensation, your first step following a Raleigh car accident should be contacting a knowledgeable personal injury attorney. The civil litigation lawyers of Maginnis Law, PLLC work closely with their car accident personal injury clients to ensure informed, skillful negotiation and litigation of their claims.
There are numerous advantages to retaining a motor vehicle accident personal injury lawyer. The first advantage is that a car accident attorney can help you identify all available sources of insurance coverage. Many North Carolina motorists carry only the bare minimum of automobile liability insurance – $30,000.00. If your claim exceeds this amount, and many do, it is important to identify additional insurance policies under which you may recover.
Another advantage to retaining a skilled personal injury attorney is the identification of all damages. Automobile insurance companies dealing with unrepresented parties frequently try to negotiate limited recoveries based upon their biased view of how long a person should treat for a particular injury. Ultimately, insurance adjusters are not doctors and have no right to determine how long you should treat for your injuries. The Raleigh car accident attorneys of Maginnis Law, PLLC will fight for your right to full medical expenses and lost wage earning capacity. Insurance companies also usually offer unrepresented parties only a nominal amount in pain and suffering damages. Our car accident attorneys are typically able to negotiate a higher amount on your behalf. We may also be able to help by speaking with your doctor to determine if you have a permanent disability and, if so, what “rating” applies to your injury. If your doctor does assign such a rating, it can have a tremendous impact on your total recovery from the insurer.
Maginnis Law, PLLC prides itself on its commitment to client service. Unlike many larger personal injury firms, Maginnis Law, PLLC does not retain an entourage of paralegals and “case managers” that handle most client interactions. We believe in prompt and immediate client service by lawyers. Direct access to our car accident attorneys leads to a more complete understanding of your injuries and, specifically, how they have impaired your quality of life. We feel that this thorough understanding of your situation is vital to properly negotiating and litigating your Raleigh car accident claim.
The automobile accident attorneys of Maginnis Law, PLLC offer free consultations and regularly travel to meet with clients and potential clients alike. Our lawyers handle all car accident cases on a contingency basis. You do not pay any attorneys’ fees unless you recover compensation for your injuries.
