Franklin County Automobile Accident Attorney | Louisburg Personal Injury Lawyer
A personal injury claim can arise from any number of incidents, including automobile accidents, medical malpractice, slips and falls, and construction accidents. The basic requirement of a valid claim is only that you have been injured as a result of another party’s breach of a duty owed to you; for example, another driver failing to observe a red light or an apartment complex failing to remove ice from its commons area stairs.
No matter the circumstances, if you have been injured due another’s negligence, and are were not yourself “contributorily negligent,” you are entitled to a judgment for certain legally recognized damages including, but not limited to, medical expenses, lost wages, and compensation for pain and suffering. The personal injury attorneys of Maginnis Law can assist you through the process of negotiating with the responsible party or his or her insurance company. If we are unable to negotiate a fair settlement, we litigate your claim to a trial if need be.

The most common personal injury and negligence cases involve car accidents. These can range from low damage rear-end collisions to cases involving devastating injuries requiring surgery and hospitalization. Automobile insurance companies frequently attempt to deny a recovery while relying on shaky arguments pertaining to causation and contributory negligence. Contributory negligence is the rule that if you are even 1% at fault for your injuries, you are not entitled to a recovery (there are exceptions you can discuss with your attorney). Insurance companies also try to artificially “adjust” down your damages and deny recovery for the full extent of your medical bills and lost wages. This is why it is important to have an advocate on your side that understands North Carolina personal injury law and who will pressure the insurer to provide fair compensation.
