Asheville Car Accident Lawyer
The results of your legal representation, your hard work & effort on my behalf was unbelievable. I received all my lost wages and the back surgery and other medical attention that had previously been declined**.”
– George C.
Being injured in a serious automobile accident can be the most frightening and stressful event of your life. Not only are you left with an injury that requires substantial medical treatment, but the bills start to pile up, creditors call at all hours of the day, and the stress and uncertainty for you and your family can feel insurmountable. Your injuries can affect every aspect of your life, including: your work, your family and home life, and your involvement in your community.
Unfortunately, even when the other driver is clearly at fault for your accident, getting a fair settlement from an insurance company is an uphill battle. This is particularly true if you have soft tissue injuries (like sprains or strains), concussion or whiplash injuries, or if your accident aggravated pre-existing medical conditions or injuries. The insurance adjuster assigned to your case knows that you may be feeling desperate to reach a settlement as soon as possible. They may drag their feet, avoid your calls, or use other tactics to pressure you into settling for an amount much lower than what you need to cover your medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses.

Dealing with the insurance company becomes more difficult if you have not yet completed your treatment. As the bills continue to come in, the constant reminder of the financial burden of your accident can distract you from being able to focus on your health and getting back on track.
Personal injury attorneys do much more for car accident victims than represent them in court. They can speak with your medical providers to get them off your back about repayment. A good lawyer will also fully investigate your case to determine questions of fault and the causes of your injuries. Most importantly, your lawyer can speak to insurance adjusters on your behalf to negotiate with them. Hiring an attorney may increase your settlement, which can be used to pay off your medical bills, compensate you for lost wages, and make you whole again after an injury.
At our office, we will also let you know if you even need to hire a lawyer at all or if you can handle your claim on your own. Often, simple accidents can be handled without an attorney. We’ll tell you if thats the case, and how best to go about settling it yourself, so that you’re not paying for services you don’t require. We can even advise you on how to write a demand letter and how to negotiate with an insurance adjuster. When you have no legal fees to pay, your settlement becomes more valuable to you, leaving more money in your pocket.
