How We Can Help

If you have been involved in an auto accident, hiring a Pineville or Monroe car accident attorney is always a good idea.

When you hire our legal team at Sumwalt Anderson, we can help you in various ways to ensure your rights are properly represented.

Investigation and Consultation

One of the top services a car accident lawyer in Monroe, NC,  can provide is a full investigation and consultation on your case. Your attorney will spend time assessing and reviewing the following documents:

  • Medical reports
  • Car damage reports
  • Police reports
  • Other information from the case.

They can then complete a more thorough investigation to identify who was liable for the accident and who should be liable to cover your damages.

Your attorney can then work with you to develop a plan for moving forward to ensure you are appropriately compensated for any losses you have incurred.

Help Filing a Claim

Your car accident lawyer can also offer the support you need to help file your claim. If you plan on moving forward with a claim against the negligent party in the auto accident, you will need to ensure the claim is filed properly.

Your attorney can help with all aspects of this part of the process. This includes identifying all costs you have incurred, which include:

  • Vehicle repair costs
  • Medical and therapy bills
  • Lost wages
  • Legal expenses
  • Compensation for pain and suffering.

Besides that, our attorneys can put together a formal notice that is properly filed with all necessary parties.

Support with Negotiations

The attorneys with Sumwalt Anderson can also provide support during any negotiations. Most auto accident cases are settled outside of the courtroom.

Your attorney can handle negotiations with the other party, their insurance company, and their legal team. This will allow you to focus on your recovery while the attorney works to get the best outcome possible.

Our Pineville Car Accident Lawyers Know the Importance of Proving That the Other Driver Caused the Crash

In North Carolina, state law requires that any victim of a car crash can only collect compensation for injuries and hardships if the other driver is completely at fault for the accident.

If you are trying to represent yourself against the other driver’s insurer, you may find that the insurance company will try to convince you to admit that you were distracted while driving, such as glancing at your phone or adjusting the radio at the time of the crash. If you admit something even as minor as this, the insurer may be able to claim that the accident involved contributory negligence on your part. This means you contributed in some way to the crash, no matter how minor, leaving you unable to win a settlement.

We Help You Defend Yourself Against Claims of Contributory Negligence

When our Pineville, NC, car accident lawyers are representing you, we will not let the insurance company trick you into admitting even a sliver of fault in the crash. In fact, we will take over all negotiations with the insurance company on your behalf so you can focus on regaining your health.

If the insurance company is going to try to claim contributory negligence on your part, understand that North Carolina statute § 1-139 requires that the party trying to claim contributory negligence must prove it. We have experience in past cases with thwarting the other side from obtaining this type of proof, and we can apply these past strategies to your case.

Our Pineville, NC, Car Accident Lawyers Know How to Deal With Uninsured Motorist Cases

When the driver who hit you and caused your injuries does not have enough insurance coverage or has no insurance, your case becomes more complex. In this situation, you would call on the uninsured and underinsured motorists’ coverage on your own auto policy, as defined in North Carolina statute § 20-279.21. In essence, you may have to bring a claim against your own insurer to receive the full amount of compensation you deserve.

Although this may seem strange, trust that our Pineville and Monroe car accident lawyers have experience with these types of cases and can help you. What you may find is that your own insurance company begins treating you in a hostile manner, doubting the severity of your injuries. This is extremely frustrating, especially when you always pay your premiums on time. Sumwalt Anderson does not let any insurance company treat our clients unfairly. We fight hard for you every step of the way, no matter how many twists and turns the case takes.
