Most often, the drivers involved in the car accident are responsible for the damage caused, with the at-fault driver and their insurer owing compensation to the other party. The at-fault party is the one that caused the accident, but it is common for insurance companies to try to shift blame from their insured. If a motorist causes an accident while driving or driving or acts especially recklessly or lawless, he or she may be held personally responsible. If your claim involved an uninsured or underinsured driver, your own insurance company may be held responsible to cover your costs, and Tien Law Firm’s car accident lawyers can negotiate with your insurer and the other driver’s insurance company.

It is important to consult a car accident attorney as soon as possible following a collision. Early-on, an attorney may assist with visiting the collision site, obtaining the crash report, and obtaining witness statements. Also, tricky questions by insurance adjusters can be directed to your attorney. If you are injured, or want to get checked out to make sure you are okay, it is best to seek medical treatment as soon as possible to obtain treatment and document your injuries. Because North Carolina is one of just a few states that still follow the rule of contributory negligence—which bars a person from recovering if they were even a small portion at fault—their is a lot more financial risk on the line. Therefore, your personal injury attorney will want to get started as soon as possible to try to build your case and preserve evidence to try to counter any claim of shared responsibility.
