Nagle & Associates: Dedicated NC Auto Accident Attorneys
Most of our cases involve severe and lasting injury. Because these cases involve higher settlements and verdicts, we offer a reduced fee as we feel this is more fair for clients who suffer significant, life-changing injuries. Most personal injury firms charge 33.3% of the settlement, and 40-44% of any amount collected after a lawsuit is filed. Our fee is far more favorable for our clients. We charge 25% (¼) of settlement and 33.3% (⅓) in litigation. Most of our cases settle, with no suit filings or court involvement. For NC crash victims, we offer the best legal fee in the industry. Also, you pay nothing to put us to work today. Our fee is pure contingency – meaning there is no fee unless AND until we collect money for you.
Other law firms throughout North Carolina offer a broad spectrum of legal services, but Nagle & Associates features experienced attorneys who ONLY handle car accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, pedestrian accidents, and other roadway accident cases. Our knowledge and experience in this area of law is an extremely valuable advantage to our clients. The firm’s founding attorney, Carl Nagle, has extensive insurance industry experience that we utilize to build value in every case. We also currently have 3 fully licensed North Carolina insurance claims adjusters on staff who help to ensure that insurance companies are not able to use common tactics to oppose or devalue our clients’ car accident claims.
Nagle & Associates, P.A. has a keen awareness of the insurance claims process and how insurers strive to minimize the damages they owe to victims of auto collisions. It’s unfair, unjust, and, sometimes, downright unethical to trivialize the pain and suffering of people involved in car accidents through no fault of their own. However, insurance companies always try to minimize victims’ claims, and they will pay you as little as possible if you don’t have legal help.
The attorneys at Nagle & Associates know what a fair victim compensation package should look like, and we’ll put our experience to work for you, investigating your accident, identifying all responsible parties and insurance companies, gathering and highlighting valuable medical evidence, proving all damages and losses, and maximizing your claim for tax-free payment for all pain and suffering associated with your injuries. Our goal is to collect the highest possible payment for your injury claims, to oppose and minimize outside claims against your settlement money, and to leave you with generous injury compensation so you can put your accident properly behind you.
Our help is just a phone call away. When you contact us for an evaluation of your case, we provide a free consultation by telephone, share a safe plan of action, and explain how to file all insurance claims, and negotiate the legal process to collect the highest payment on all valid claims. Even if you choose to handle your case alone, our conversation will help you understand the insurance adjuster’s true role in the claim process, and how to best present all claims arising from a car, truck, motorcycle, or other roadway accident.

Do You Know What You’re Entitled To?
Many car accident victims have questions about what they might be entitled to receive. In many cases, individuals may receive payment for all past AND FUTURE medical bills related to injuries sustained in the crash. They are also entitled to compensation for lost wages accrued because of medical disability and payment for damages to their vehicle or other personal property. Finally, North Carolina collision victims are entitled to additional tax-free compensation for scarring, lost mobility, lost quality of life, and all of the physical pain and emotional suffering they had to endure due to their crash-related injuries.
Each auto accident case is different, but we build all damage claims in each instance, collect and present valuable physical and medical evidence, and fight for the total value of every case. If the insurance adjuster refuses to pay a fair settlement, we stand ready to conduct a jury trial in your home county. Because we deal only with injury cases arising from roadway accidents, we understand what constitutes FULL compensation based on elements of every client’s individual case. We will examine every aspect of your case to ensure that no stone is left unturned in our pursuit to fight for what is owed to you. We know that insurers have their best interests at heart; we put your interests first because our law provides the legal right to generous compensation for what you’ve endured.

Moreover, more than 30% of these deaths were related to speeding. In addition, injuries related to car accidents in North Carolina have increased by more than 5% since 2015.
