Mr. Nagle and his team have recovered over $290 million in compensation for victims throughout the state.
We understand the financial issues and legal issues that arise from serious motor vehicle accidents because we practice exclusively in this area of law. Our focus on traumatic injury cases arising from car, motorcycle, bicycle, pedestrian, truck and other vehicle accidents has led us to forge strong relationships with a wide range of experts in this area, ranging from doctors and surgeons to accident reconstruction engineers, law enforcement, economists and vocational rehabilitation experts. Having previously worked in the insurance industry, Mr. Nagle knows the tactics that insurers and their attorneys often use to unfairly limit their payouts to accident victims. As a former insurance adjuster and former insurance company lawyer, Carl will craft persuasive strategies to protect your rights, maximize compensation, and solve problems in your time of need.
Assert Your Rights after a Motor Vehicle Collision
The period following a serious motor vehicle accident is extremely traumatic for a victim and their family. In addition to physical injuries, they often face financial challenges as a result of medical expenses and income loss arising from the crash. If a careless driver was responsible for a serious car accident, the victim or the victim’s family should enlist a lawyer to immediately protect and enforce all financial and legal rights. Aggressive pursuit of your personal injury claims will help to provide compensation for the losses you endure on physical, emotional, and financial levels.
A driver may be held legally responsible for an accident if they were negligent, or careless, in their conduct or behavior. In serious injury cases, it is important to carefully investigate the collision and crash scene to identify all parties who share blame for the accident. If two or more drivers made mistakes which led to your accident, they can be held jointly liable. If a driver was on-the-job when they caused an accident, their employer’s commercial liability insurance coverage can be brought in and forced to contribute toward payment of victims’ claims. Proving fault also requires you to eliminate allegations of victim fault. In North Carolina, if the victim is slightly (even just 1%) at fault, they have no legal right to compensation! Hiring an attorney to investigate the crash and nail down evidence to prove fault costs nothing up front, and may make all the difference for you and your family.
Accident victims may seek payment for economic losses and also for past and future pain and suffering. Economic losses include medical bills, including future medical costs where we can prove that your injuries may be lasting or permanent. Similarly, we can collect for future lost income and for early retirement with evidence from doctors and vocational rehabilitation specialists who together testify that injuries will prevent you from working until retirement. Even if you are back to work now, we may be able to collect for lost future earnings if evidence indicates you will not be able to work until natural retirement age.
To prove the full impact of a victim’s injuries and maximize personal injury compensation, the most vital step is carefully develop and interpret medical evidence. Our vehicle injury law firm only handles traumatic injury cases and our team has extensive experience working with neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, internal medicine specialists, vascular surgeons, physiatrists, pain management specialists and physicians in all areas of medical practice. Our focus on medical evidence will compel the opposition to pay fair value for all losses, such as ongoing medical treatments, home modifications or other expenses necessary to help a victim cope with permanent injuries.
In the most devastating and tragic cases, a family may lose a loved one to a moment of carelessness by someone else. When this happens, they can bring a wrongful death claim to seek damages for their loss. This compensation is often the only way to provide replacement income and services to help surviving family members avoid financial setbacks and to safely move forward. Our law firm has handled many wrongful death claims and we stand ready to advise surviving family members of all legal rights and options whenever this need arises.
