We at the Law Office of D. Hardison Wood are your Triangle-area personal injury attorneys truly dedicated to providing you with the legal representation you deserve to maximize the compensation you’re entitled to when you’re involved in a car accident.

Injured in a car accident?

If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, you should be exploring your legal options – not only to seek justice if you are injured by another’s mistake; but you may not even fully understand the extent or even the existence of your injury. For example, did you know that seat belt trauma can take days to appear after a crash? If you’re experiencing any bleeding, weakness, difficulty breathing, stiffness or abdominal pain following your accident, you could have suffered a seat belt injury.

Why you should hire a lawyer

After an accident, it’s likely you are in a vulnerable state and in need of an attorney with your best interests in mind. Insurance companies want to give you a low offer after an accident, so you should talk to an attorney soon after visiting the hospital. Moreover, if you have a pre-existing condition, insurance companies might attempt to get out of payment by claiming the injury from the accident happened due to that condition. However, the law still requires insurance companies to pay out even if you have a pre-existing condition.

When your legal rights are in jeopardy, an attorney who wants the best for you is essential to being treated fairly, making sure the negligent party is held accountable, and getting you the compensation you deserve.
