Where Do Car Accidents Occur Most Often in Wilmington?

In February of 2022, WECT News 6 published an interactive breakdown of some of the worst intersections for car accidents in New Hanover County, where Wilmington is located. Half of the intersections were located along College Road, and angle accidents (including T-bone crashes) and rear-end crashes were the most common.

If you have been injured in a car accident that was not your fault, we advise you to seek the counsel of a Wilmington accident lawyer as soon as possible. You don’t have to handle the aftermath of the accident by yourself.

Should You Give the Insurance Company a Recorded Statement?

It’s prudent to talk to an attorney before giving a recorded statement to the insurance company. If the at-fault driver’s insurance company can prove that you were responsible for any part of the accident, even just 1%, it may try to deny you any compensation. An experienced attorney can explain your rights and advise you on how to communicate with the other driver’s insurance claims adjuster.

If the accident was not your fault, an auto accident lawyer for Wilmington can help you try to obtain compensation for harms and losses you incurred from the accident. Call the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin at 1-866-900-7078 for a free case evaluation. The phone call costs you nothing, and representation may improve your chances of receiving compensation.

What Is Your Car Accident Case Worth?

Car accidents can be as different as cars themselves are, so it’s difficult to estimate the value of a car accident claim without knowing all the details. However, the following types of facts are usually evaluated when determining how much a car accident case may be worth:

  • Accident specifics – the who, what, where, when, why, and how of the accident
  • Medical care – immediate medical attention provided and possible ongoing care needed
  • Lost wages – current pay, as well as future pay, not received due to an inability to work
  • Pain and suffering – stress, fatigue, and worry resulting from the accident
  • Other factors – such as possible diminished value and punitive damages, and insurance policy coverage limits

Can You Afford a Car Accident Lawyer for Wilmington, NC?

Yes, you can afford a lawyer, like the ones at the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin, who work on a contingency fee basis because you do not have to pay anything at the outset of your case. Instead, we collect our attorney’s fee as a percentage of the compensation if we recover for you.2 While there may be other fees associated with your car accident case, you won’t owe us an attorney’s fee unless we recover for you.
