Each Raleigh attorney focuses on the recovery of personal injury and wrongful death damages in motor vehicle accidents. We also have extensive experience with the recovery of damages in children's injury claims in accidents involving bicycles or pedestrians, whether the victim is an adult or a child.
Our accident and injury law firms first concern is to make sure that the accident victim has access to all the medical treatment resources necessary to ensure the fullest possible recovery for such injuries as broken collarbones, brain concussions, and other trauma that is too often misdiagnosed and under treated. We can help you and your family overcome any insurance barriers to ensure that the victim receives the proper tests and treatment. Contact our Law Offices today to see a Raleigh accident and injury attorney immediately.
While we are helping you with the physical recovery from the accident, we also investigate the circumstances to make sure that we can prove both liability and damages against the responsible party. In pedestrian or bicycle accidents involving children, you should be aware that special laws apply to the timing of your claim. Parents have a 3-year period for filing a lawsuit to recover medical expenses. The child's own damages claim, however, can be filed in most cases at any time through his or her 21st birthday. The three-year deadline is crucial! Otherwise, the at-fault driver escapes liability for medical expenses and parents' losses.
Because personal injury cases with child victims must be filed through the parents acting on the child's behalf, settlements must be approved by the court. We handle these simple hearings for the family. Our experience with a wide range of injury cases ranging from fractures to permanent paralysis or death always helps you make sound decisions about the timing and presentation of damages claims based on your unique circumstances.
