Being injured in a car accident can be devastating and overwhelming.  The award-winning lawyers at Miller Law Group have over 50 years of combined experience representing victims of car accidents.

If you have been injured in a car accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, or by the negligence of another, here are 5 things you need to know:

  1. You do not have to give a recorded statement. If fact, it is probably best not to give recorded statement.
  2. In North Carolina, the statute of limitations is 3 years.  Meaning, you have 3 years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit to protect your claim.
  3. If you have health insurance, submit your medical bills to your health insurance. Your medical providers will not wait until the defendant’s insurance company makes a payment on the claim.
  4. More than likely, you can resolve your property damage claim without retaining a lawyer.
  5. Take pictures of everything: the scene of the accident, the cars involved, your injures, etc. Remember a picture speaks a thousand words.

Insurance companies are not acting in your best interest. Do not feel pressure to resolve your personal injury claim until you are ready.  It is always a good idea to speak with an experienced car accident lawyer regarding your claim before taking any action.
