Motor Vehicle Injuries

Car Accident Injuries

While no car accident is convenient, these incidents can have a wide range of possible consequences. The most regrettable consequences can include devastating personal injuries, loss of employment, pain and suffering, and vehicle property damage. Victims of these accidents may feel like they have nowhere to turn. In fact, law enforcement officials may not be looking out for their best interests and insurance companies may only be protecting their own interests. At Arnold & Smith, PLLC, our personal injury attorneys can be the advocate you need. Our goal is to protect your rights and make sure that you receive the compensation that you deserve.

A car accident may have a lasting detrimental impact for a victim and their family. The financial losses caused by the negligence of another driver can also place a large burden on the victim. From medical bills to lost wages, those suffering injuries or disabilities from these accidents may be entitled to a large amount of compensation. While the consequences may be devastating, it is important that victims consult with an attorney who can help to take away some of the financial burden.

Under North Carolina law, victims have the right to seek full compensation for their injuries. At Arnold & Smith, PLLC, our attorneys will guide your claim through the court system and fight for the compensation you deserve.

Truck Accident Injuries

When a motor vehicle accident involves trucks, the outcome can be much more tragic. While truck drivers may be protected by the size of their vehicles, this extra size creates a large danger for everyone else on the road. Passenger cars, pedestrians, motorcycles, and even other trucks are put in more danger when these vehicles are operated negligently. These vehicles are also often more difficult to maneuver and are far more susceptible to hazards on the road. While there are important purposes that they serve, such as business deliveries and shipping, a small case of negligence can result in serious injury or even death.

The important factors in a personal injury claim involving a truck accident can be very different than other types of accidents. Trucks have strict rules and regulations governing their industry. As a result, it is important to consult with an attorney who is experienced in dealing with truck accident injury claims. At Arnold & Smith, PLLC, our attorneys will get to know you and the facts of your specific case and will advocate on your behalf.

Additionally, before an individual can begin the process of trying to recover for their injuries, there is a long process and large amount of work that must be done. Gathering medical bills, police reports, and witness testimony are all vital to the success of any claim. Finally, a party must establish that the accident was caused by the fault of another party. As a result, strong legal counsel can be imperative to your ability to recover any financial compensation.

Know Your Rights

North Carolina law permits individuals to file claims for personal injury against any party who is responsible for the accident. In some instances, you may be able to sue the owner of the other vehicle and also the individual who was driving. In North Carolina, however, the law of contributory negligence may bar your claim. Under this law, if you were also negligent in the accident, then you may not recover from any other negligent party. As a result, it is even more important that you consult with an attorney who can protect your interests in the matter.

If you have suffered personal injuries resulting from a motor vehicle accident it is important that you receive documented medical treatment for your injuries, have a police report filed with all relevant information, and finally consult with an experienced attorney.
