A Closer Look at Wilson Car Accidents
Year-to-year, the specifics of how many and what type of car accidents change, but the following chart provides a snapshot of the automobile accident stats in the city of Wilson, NC from 2018 to 2020:
Wilson Car Crash Stats 2018-2020
|Total car crashes||1,464||1,679||1,652||-2%|
|Crashes involving alcohol||39||51||85||+67%|
|Crashes involving pedestrians||14||16||22||+37%|
|Crashes involving bikes||7||7||3||-57%|
Unfortunately, while the number of crashes and injuries decreased in 2020, the number of fatalities tripled. The number of crashes involving alcohol increased 31% – twice the rate of increase in overall crashes. A deeper review of 2015-19 crash data reveals that two roads – Ward Blvd. and SR 58 – have both been the site of fatal car accidents for three years, so be careful out there. And if you are in a wreck, a car accident attorney in Wilson may be able to help.
Should I Get a Lawyer for a Car Accident?
We advise all car accident victims with injuries to speak with an attorney. You may be coping with steep medical bills and experiencing pain and suffering. Lawyers can bring objectivity and know-how to your case. This may be your first accident, and an experienced attorney who has worked on similar cases can provide guidance on how to proceed.
At the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin, we don’t collect an attorney’s fee2 unless we obtain compensation for you. So the real question is: Why shouldn’t you get a lawyer for a car accident?
How Can a Wilson Car Accident Lawyer Help Me?
If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a car accident, we urge you to focus on healing and let an attorney:
- Obtain medical records
- Investigate the accident
- Document critical details and keep track of paperwork
- Evaluate insurance offers and deal with insurance claims adjusters
- Explain your legal options
In our experience, a common rule of thumb for many insurance companies is to “settle as quickly as possible, for as little as possible.” At the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin, we have lawyers who have worked for insurance companies, understand their motivations, and know how to handle their tactics. We strive to get you as much as possible, as quickly as possible.
What Is My Case Worth?
If you’ve been hurt in a car accident, it is important to know what your case is potentially worth – especially if you cannot return to work yet, and the bills are piling up.
While each case is different, below are some of the common damages that an accident attorney in Wilson may consider when negotiating with the insurance company:
- Medical bills, current and future
- Lost wages
- Property damage, such as car repairs
- Pain and suffering
Can I Recover Damages If I Am to Blame for the Car Wreck?
It’s important to know that in North Carolina, if you are found to be just 1% responsible for a crash, the insurance company may not compensate you. This is because North Carolina is one of a small number of contributory negligence states, and this is also why we strongly urge you to enlist the aid of a Wilson car accident lawyer.
Many accident victims do not realize that a simple conversation with the insurance claims adjuster can sometimes result in an unintended admission of responsibility for the accident. Seek the guidance of an attorney before speaking with anyone from the insurance company. Potential compensation may depend on it.
