Many people who are injured in a car accident assume that if they trust the insurance companies, they will get a fair settlement. However, this rarely happens. Insurance companies are looking out for their profits and the bottom line — they are not concerned with helping you recover from an accident.
Car Accidents And Insurance Companies
North Carolina is a “contributory negligence” state, which means if the insurance company can prove that you share the blame for the accident, they can deny all compensation and you will receive nothing. In many cases, the insurance company will try to make the accident your fault. Contacting a lawyer before your interview with the insurance adjuster is important so that you understand your rights.
Even though some people believe they can trust the insurance company to award them fair compensation after a car wreck, attorney Lyndon R. Helton knows differently. He worked for the insurance companies as an insurance defense lawyer in the past. He knows how insurance companies operate and knows your best interests aren’t always their top priority.
