AUTO ACCIDENTS OVERVIEW

A Team of Car Accident Injury Attorneys Ready to Fight for You

So it happened to you. You were in a car wreck and suffered an injury. Now, there are a lot of things to consider and a lot of people telling you different things.

Medical professionals may be telling you what’s wrong, what to do, and what medicines to take. Your friends and family may be checking in and asking what happened. And the other driver’s insurance company may be in touch as well…

Put Your Faith in Our Experience

We’ve been handling car accident injury cases since our firm was founded in 1997. If it can happen, we’ve probably seen it. We know the tactics insurance companies like to use, too. If you’re wondering what we can do for you, you can call us right now at 1-866-900-7078, chat with us, or contact us online and we’ll evaluate your case for free!

Why Put Our Highly-Recognized Legal Professionals in Your Corner?

Why choose us? Aside from our extensive experience, our team has won many accolades and has diverse experience that gives us considerable perspective.

You Want Results

Since 1997, we’ve recovered a total of more than $1.2 billion in compensation for more than 50,000 clients,1 and those numbers continue to grow. We recovered more than $125 million in total for more than 4,500 clients in 2020 alone.

You Want Recognized Professionals in Their Fields

Every year since 2006, two of our attorneys have been listed by North Carolina Super Lawyers Magazine3 as “Super Lawyers”, and since 2008 one has been a repeat annual selection to The Best Lawyers in America© list3. In 2016, that same attorney also achieved Best Lawyers in America’s3 “Lawyer of the Year” designation for the Raleigh area. Two of our lawyers were selected to be included among the “Legal Elite” in Business North Carolina Magazine3 in 2002 and then again in 2015.

You Want Someone Who Cares

Some of our attorneys have won awards and have been recognized for community, civic, and legal advocacy in many settings, including the North Carolina Advocates for Justice (NCAJ), a state-wide legal advocacy group.

You Want the People the Media Ask When They Have Questions

Our legal experience has been sought for coverage in the media for both English- and Spanish-speaking outlets. In fact, one of our attorneys was an Emmy award-winning 60 Minutes producer.

You Want the Attorneys Who Analyze and Help Write the Law

Another of our attorneys has published a number of legal articles and helped write a part of the North Carolina Personal Injury Liens Manual. Many have spoken at seminars for legal and advocacy organizations, and two are admitted to practice before the U.S. Supreme Court.

You Want a Legal Team That Speaks Spanish

With more than 1 million Hispanic/Latinos in North and South Carolina, we think it’s important to have bilingual attorneys, paralegals, and administrators on staff. We have more than 40.

Meet the Talented Personal Injury Attorneys of James Scott Farrin

Our team of formidable attorneys advocate tirelessly for clients who face powerful insurance companies in seeking fair compensation for their injuries. Our firm arms these attorneys with vast resources, state-of-the-art technology, and a support staff of highly-motivated and experienced investigators and paralegals dedicated solely to fighting for clients.
