Helping People Injured In Motor Vehicle Crashes

Motor vehicles provide great convenience to most people. You can drive anywhere, anytime. But we pay a high price for that convenience. In North Carolina, motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death for individuals in the age group of 15-24. And for those younger than age 45, these crashes are among the top four causes of death.

In addition to these deaths, millions are injured every year nationwide as a result of these crashes. Attorney Ruth Smith understands the devastating effects of these injuries on your life. If you have been injured or if a family member has died due to the negligence of another driver in a car accident, Ruth can help.

Insurance Companies Benefit By Settling Personal Injury Cases Quickly And Cheaply

Insurance companies know that after a crash, injuries can take time and medical care to heal. They also know that if they can convince the injured person to settle quickly, they will be off the hook for any medical issues that come up later. For these reasons, insurance companies will sometimes pressure an injured person to settle their case right away and before the injured person has fully recovered. You should not take the bait. North Carolina and South Carolina allow injured persons up to three years to bring a lawsuit or settle a case. As long as it is within this time limit, an injured person should not settle until they are certain they are healed.
