How we get paid
The Law Offices of James Scott Farrin works on a contingency fee arrangement. That is another way of saying that the attorney's fee is based on a percentage of the gross recovery. While a case may have fees and costs associated with it, there is no hourly or flat fee charged by the firm. Simply put, if you do not recover monetary compensation from your commercial truck accident claim, there is no attorney's fee. This allows the firm to bear the burden of investigating and pursuing your claim, which allows you to focus on your well being.
Determining liability in a truck accident is not always easy. Evidence may have to be gathered quickly. Experts might be needed to reconstruct an accident, inspect the accident scene and obtain and protect critical information. In addition, it is frequently necessary to access records for in-state companies through both the North Carolina Division of Transportation and the Secretary of State's Office. It may also be advisable to examine safety ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for the company that owns the truck. And if the case goes to trial, there may be police officers to speak with and witnesses to interview.
To make matters more complicated, North Carolina is a contributory negligence state. This means if the insurance company can prove you in any way contributed to the accident by not exercising reasonable care under the circumstances, you may be completely barred from obtaining compensation for your injuries.
Be wary of quick insurance settlement offers
Even a "minor" accident can have long-term health implications. Agreeing to a settlement before these long-term costs are taken into account can leave you uncovered for future medical expenses and other costs.
