Passenger Injuries

Insurance issues can be very complex for passengers who are injured in an auto crash or trucking accident. You may have a claim against the driver of the other vehicle or the driver of the car you were in, depending on who was at fault. In cases where multiple people are at fault, you may have a legal claim against both drivers.

At the North Carolina law firm of Powers Landreth, our lawyers will serve as advocates to guide you through the complex medical, financial and insurance issues you will face. Among the services we perform:

  • We handle all claims paperwork and negotiations with the insurance company so you can focus on healing.
  • We handle all medical bills and claims.
  • We ensure that current and future medical treatment needs have been identified so you receive adequate compensation to pay for the care you need.
  • We document your abilities to work so that you can be properly compensated for current and future loss of wages if you’ve suffered a serious injury.

The aftermath of a car accident is a very stressful time for the passengers who were injured. As a passenger, the decisions you make can have a long-lasting impact on your life. You should never allow an insurance company to pressure you into accepting a settlement that is not in your best interest. Having a lawyer who can manage your passenger injury claim and negotiate with the insurance company can be very helpful.

Under North Carolina law, family members have the right to sue other family members for injuries suffered as a passenger in a car accident. Many people are reluctant to file a claim against a father, mother, brother, sister or other relative. However, you may incur significant ongoing medical expenses, chronic pain and wage loss from your passenger injury that insurance will not cover or will cover only minimally. When a car accident involves a family member who is at fault, our lawyers can be aggressive with the insurance company and compassionate with your family members.

Client Reviews
I am so fortunate to have had Bill Powers on my case. Upon our first meeting, Bill insisted that through the emotions of anger, sadness, confusion, and betrayal that I remain resilient. He was available to answer questions with researched, logical, truthful answers throughout our two year stretch together. I went to any lengths for my case because he won my trust almost immediately... J.R.
My daughter had a second DUI and when it all seemed hopeless, Bill was able to get the charges dropped. This is a man who is extremely knowledgeable, yet still keeps his integrity which was impressive to me. He handles himself with dignity. If you hire him, you will have the best of the best, along with his expansive intellect and wisdom about the law. Lisa
Bill Powers’ staff has handled several traffic citations for me over the years, and they exceeded my expectations each and every time. Would highly recommend anyone faced with a traffic citation or court case contact his office and they will handle it from there. M.C.
Bill and his staff are flat out great. I (unfortunately) was a repeat customer after a string of tickets. These guys not only took care of the initial ticket for me, but went the extra mile and reduced my problems from 3 to just 1 (very minor one) on the same day I called back! I would recommend them to anyone. A.R.
