Some Statistics on Wake County, NC Auto Accidents
If you have been injured in a Wake County NC auto accident, you are not alone! According to the NC Department of Motor Vehicles, in 2015, there were 28, 756 crashes and 11, 692 injures in Wake County. That was an average of 32 injuries a day in 2015 from auto crashes. Fortunately, you can attempt to recover medical and other accident related expenses if the accident was not your fault.
How do I know if the auto accident was my fault?
If you received a ticket, the accident was deemed to be your fault. If you are at fault, you can not recover from the other party for your medical and other accident related expenses. If you are not at fault, you should obtain the at-fault party’s insurance information, take photos of your vehicle/the at-fault driver’s vehicle as well as seek immediate medical treatment.
What expenses can I be reimbursed for and who reimburses me?
You can be reimbursed your accident related medical care/expenses and lost wages due to being out of work because of your injuries. You should contact the at-fault party’s auto insurance carrier. After filing a claim, you should inform the adjuster of all your expenses related to the accident.
What if the insurance company won’t pay for treatment I need or other expenses?
Please remember that insurance companies make their profits from insurance premium payments, not paying claims. Quite often, adjusters do not want to pay for medical expenses or other accident related expenses based on technical issues or they will even dispute that your injury was caused by the accident. Many times, the only recourse that a injured party has is to seek help from a NC Auto Accident Lawyer to recover their accident related expenses.
