Auto Wrecks

car accident lawyer in Raleigh NC

Roads and highways are perhaps the most dangerous areas we are forced to frequent in our society. Most of us are good drivers, but drunk or distracted drivers are a persistent danger on our roadways — and can cause a catastrophic wreck in an instant.

North Carolina, and specifically the Triangle, is one of the fastest growing parts of the country and motor vehicle deaths are far too common. In 2009, 1,314 people were killed on North Carolina highways.[1] The experienced North Carolina car accident lawyers at Zaytoun & Ballew believe the only way to prevent bad driving is to make sure wrongdoers are held accountable for the injuries and deaths they cause on the road.

What to do if you or a loved one is in a motor vehicle accident

In all motor vehicle accidents, it’s essential to conduct early investigations and preserve evidence. Important steps in this process include: contacting the police to file an accident report, getting appropriate medical care, investigating the scene of the accident, and taking photographs of your vehicle and injuries.

After a car accident, an insurance company may attempt to settle with you.  However, despite TV commercials promising that you will be “in good hands,” or treated “like a good neighbor,” insurance companies do not have your best interests at heart. The single goal of any insurance carrier in an auto accident (including your own) is to limit the amount of recovery they have to pay you for your injuries and medical bills. You need a legal team that will make sure you, or your loved one, get the compensation you deserve.
