Tien Law Firm Will Identify Negligent Parties and Seek to Hold Them Accountable

After a car accident, both your physical and financial recovery can be difficult. When you hire Tien Law Firm, we will thoroughly review your accident and determine who is responsible for your injuries.

Sometimes, there can be multiple parties responsible and even shared liability. Identifying the ones who are liable is essential for obtaining adequate compensation.

Many factors can come into play when determining who might be responsible for an accident. If you work with a Wilmington car accident lawyer on our team, we will investigate these factors to determine who is at fault, including:

  • Other drivers: For most car accidents, an act of negligence caused it. We will look into the factors that led up to the accident and determine if reckless driving, including distracted and intoxicated driving, played a role.
  • Government entities: Poorly maintained roads, inadequate signage, and improper speed limits can cause a car accident. Our Wilmington, NC car accident lawyers will determine if this situation applies.
  • Pedestrians or bicyclists: Pedestrians and cyclists must also follow the rules of the road. Even if they were on foot, a negligent individual can cause serious traffic accidents and subsequent injuries.

If you are facing the claims process, an appeal, or are considering taking your case to civil court, Tien Law Firm can help. Call our legal team to receive a free consultation now at (888) 920-8180.

    The Negligent Driver Could Place the Blame on You

    The negligent party is responsible for paying your compensation by a percentage for which they are at fault. Under North Carolina General Statutes, this rule falls under contributory negligent

    This can deny recovery to any claimant alleged to be even 1% responsible for the resulting injuries. When it comes to proving liability, it can be incredibly beneficial to have Wake County car accident lawyer on your side. With their experience, they can help you build a case that does not allow an insurance company to pin an unfair share of blame on you.

    North Carolina Imposes Time Limits on Car Accident Injury Claims

    North Carolina General Statutes is the state’s statute of limitations for personal injury cases. It imposes a time limit to file a claim. In most cases, you have up to three years from the date of your injury, although other limitations and exceptions may apply.

    Not filing a claim within this time limit will likely lead to a denial of benefits or a civil case dismissal. Therefore, it is essential to know which statute of limitations applies to your case.

    Even if you do not think your case will result in a civil suit, it is extremely important that you take steps to ensure you remain within these limitations to not risk your ability to pursue compensation..

    Do not take chances by waiting too long. Contact Tien Law Firm today to discuss your situation.
