Getting The Legal Help You Need After A Car Accident

Please consider Burts Law, PLLC a strong advocate on your side in case of an auto, truck or motorcycle accident in North Carolina. We are available to help from the time of the crash until you receive all compensation you are eligible for. We handle cases for people who have suffered injuries and for those who have lost loved ones in traffic accidents. We treat our clients like close friends or family as we use our experience to help injured people and their families get their cases resolved in their favor in a timely manner.

Get Compensation For Medical Expenses, Lost Wages And Pain And Suffering

Traffic accidents are both painful and troublesome. An injured passenger, driver, pedestrian or bicycle rider may face lengthy, costly medical procedures and therapy on the road to recovery. In case of a fatality, families face a sorrowful loss while also incurring many expenses. Having a dedicated personal injury lawyer on board allows the injured person and family members to focus on healing and recovery after a traffic accident.

We often see clients who have suffered from one or more of the following in a collision:

  • Back, neck and shoulder injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Head injuries (traumatic brain injury or any closed or open head injury)
  • Burn injuries
  • Fatal injuries

Our lawyers and staff are ready to pull out the stops to make things easier for you after you have been hurt because of someone else’s negligence. Whether we represent you or not, we are confident you will take away valuable information when you meet us to talk about your case.

‘But What About Insurance?’

Many people expect to collect compensation through their own insurance or another driver’s insurance. Although insurance is a common safety net, pay-outs do not come automatically. Except in minor cases, we do not normally recommend that private individuals navigate the insurance pathway to recovery on their own. The reason is simple: We know from experience that insurers will do all they can to avoid paying out what an injured person really needs to move forward. They make profits by taking in more than they pay out. Insurers are also notorious for denials, delays and lowball settlement offers.

When stakes are high, you can also expect an insurance company to defend its own policyholder (and the insurance company itself). Claims adjusters may offer a discounted settlement, hoping the injured person will accept out of a sense of urgency. This is one reason we strongly recommend that car accident victims and family members NOT give statements to insurers before getting legal counsel. While we settle many cases out of court, we always make it clear to our clients’ legal opponents that we are ready to take arguments before a judge and jury if necessary.

Initial Consultations Are Free

We do not want financial worries to stand in your way at this stressful time, as you consider contacting a lawyer. If our firm takes your case, we will do so on a contingency basis. This means you will not owe attorneys’ fees until and unless we help you recover a settlement or verdict.

Do not hesitate to call us at 866-287-8752 or send an email inquiry right away to get the conversation started about what you need and how we can help. We can visit you at your hospital or home if necessary.
