Who is Liable for My Accident?

Get Counsel from a Seasoned Charlotte Car Accident Lawyer

In the wake of a car accident, it is important to determine who was at fault and to what degree. Depending on the details of the accident, you could be eligible to recover compensation for the driver who was to blame. The first step to take after an accident should be to call an experienced Charlotte personal injury attorney who can argue the fault lies with the other party and defend your right to compensation.

Assigning fault for a car accident claim can be a complicated affair which means having a seasoned injury attorney at your side could make all the difference. Saffa Law Firm has over a quarter-century of legal experience. We believe in client satisfaction so much that we make ourselves available to our clients 24/7—get us on your side when you’ve been hurt in an accident!

How Does Fault Work in North Carolina?

North Carolina is one of 5 states which follows what is known as contributory negligence, which means that if it is determined that you were even 1% at fault for the accident, you could be denied any financial damages from the other party.

This means you need tough representation to recover compensation for any of the following:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost past and future wages
  • Physical therapy
  • Prescription medication
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering

The other party’s attorney will only attempt to argue that you are slightly responsible to avoid paying any compensation. It is critical, therefore, that you retain legal representation to argue against any fault on your part so you can recover the compensation you deserve!

Saffa Law Firm is Ready to Protect You

For this reason, you need a vigorous Charlotte car accident attorney who can fight to obtain the most compensation available. We can conduct interviews of witnesses and examine any medical attention you received from the accident to prove you were not at all to blame for the accident.
