What Are the Causes of Car Accidents in Rocky Mount and Where Do They Happen?
In our experience as car accident attorneys for Rocky Mount, drivers are almost always the cause of accidents – which is why we like to call them crashes. Negligence is not an accident. Failure to reduce speed, inattention, and failure to yield the right of way are the three most often cited contributing circumstances for crashes and injuries in North Carolina.

How Do I Know How Much My Car Accident Case May Be Worth?
Some online calculators attempt to give people general ideas of case value, but the facts of every case differ, which affects the value. The truth is, it’s challenging to estimate the potential value of your case until you’ve recovered and the medical bills stop coming in. How do you know how much work and income you’ve lost until you can return to it – assuming you can return to it?
When we estimate the value of a case, we rely on our extensive experience. Here are a few things you should consider:
- How much are my medical bills, and will I need care in the future due to my injury?
- What amount of wages did I lose due to my inability to work due to my injury?
- Did I lose anything of value as a direct result of my injury – like nonrefundable plane tickets?
- Am I owed for my pain and suffering?
The easiest way we can give you an idea of how much your case may be worth is for you to call 866-900-7078. We’ll evaluate your case for free. Our auto accident attorneys in Rocky Mount have the experience and resources to fight for your best interests.
How Much Do Car Accident Lawyers in Rocky Mount Cost?
Good question! If a firm charges an hourly fee, then the cost will greatly depend on how many hours the firm works to resolve your case. If they are unable to collect a settlement or judgment on your behalf, there is still a bill to be paid.
We work on a contingency fee basis. That means you won’t pay us an attorney’s fee unless we recover for you. We collect a percentage of the total compensation we’re able to obtain – if you don’t get paid, we don’t get paid an attorney’s fee, either.2 This arrangement means our goals are in sync with yours: we seek as much compensation for you as possible as quickly as possible.
