Raleigh Automobile Crash Personal Injury Attorney


After a serious car accident, the most important thing is to make sure you seek prompt medical treatment. Once you have had that treatment, you should consider speaking with a North Carolina personal injury attorney if the wreck was the fault of another person.

Unfortunately, not all automobile insurance companies deal fairly with claimants. Most insurance companies hide behind weak liability and medical arguments to force you to take less than reasonable compensation. When this happens, you need a persistent personal injury attorney to represent your interests.

Maginnis Law’s lead personal injury attorney, T. Shawn Howard, is experienced in handling daunting automobile crash personal injury cases. He recently represented a teenage girl from Raleigh who was catastrophically injured in a motor vehicle accident in September of 2017. At the time of the Crash, she was riding in the passenger seat of a car driven by the defendant.

Because of the Crash, Mr. Howard’s client suffered a mild Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), tibia & fibula fractures, multiple fractures to her pelvis which required an Open Reduction Internal Fixation (ORIF) surgery to repair. ORIF surgery required the doctors to re-align the bone using screws. She also suffered a fractured femur and L2, L3, L4 and L5 fractures in her spine. Most notably, she almost did not survive the Crash, as she had a shattered right kidney and bleeding from her right renal artery and aorta. Her right kidney had to be removed by surgeons in order to save her life.

Mr. Howard spent nearly two years litigating this case, seeking to recover all available insurance coverage for her. After the Defendant refused to appear for his deposition, the firm filed multiple motions with the Court that ultimately resulted in the Defendant being held in contempt and arrested. The Defendant’s deposition ultimately took place in a Wake County jail cell after he was arrested and transferred by the Sampson County Sheriff’s Office. The firm was ultimately able to settle the child’s claim for all available insurance coverage. Notably, while Medicaid initially claimed one-third of the minor’s settlement for reimbursement, the firm filed a Motion to reduce the Medicaid lien. Medicaid later agreed to waive its claimed lien. This allowed the client to make a more substantial recovery.
