Does It Matter If I Am at Fault in the Car Wreck?
Yes, fault matters in car wrecks in Winston-Salem because North Carolina is a contributory negligence state. Contributory negligence means that your claim could be denied if you are found to have contributed to the accident in any way. Insurance companies sometimes try to lead accident victims into admitting some type of fault for the accident.
If you mistakenly admit to fault, even 1%, your claim could be denied. This is one of the main reasons why we advise you to consult with a car accident attorney in Winston-Salem before you talk to an insurance agent or adjuster.
