If you’ve been hurt in a car accident, be careful about talking to an adjuster. In North Carolina, insurance adjusters aren’t required to protect your interests. They will often go out of their way to do the opposite. Adjusters cannot lie to you, which would be fraud. However, they can and will tell you things so that you don’t get a full and fair picture about what your case is worth.
For example, if an adjuster says, “since you were injured in Boone, the traffic laws are different there from the rest of the state.” That’s not really true. It’s true that each town, city, and county has input in things like in-town speed limits, traffic light location, and other matters that affect a local community. However, the laws of negligence, that control car wrecks and how and when you can recover compensation from a car wreck, are the same throughout the state. If your car accident happened within the state borders of North Carolina, our negligence laws are the same from the mountains to the sea and back.
