How We Handle Your Accident Claim
As soon as you sign with our firm, we begin investigating your accident, which includes gathering important evidence from the accident scene. This evidence often involves accident reports, security or traffic footage, eyewitness testimony and electronic data recordings. Riddle and Brantley is proud to have retired law enforcement officers on staff to assist with the investigation.
If needed, our firm also hires accident reconstruction experts to further strengthen your claim. We are relentless in our pursuit of justice for our car accident injury clients.
In addition to gathering evidence from the accident, we also research all potentially liable parties. We want to ensure that our clients receive justice and adequate compensation for their damages. Our attorneys work tirelessly to identify all coverage options and hold all negligent parties responsible.
Dealing with the Insurance Companies
Another important part of our job is gathering all the necessary documents and submitting them to the insurance companies. Our legal team communicates with all of your medical providers. We obtain all medical records and bills related to your accident. During this phase, we also collect any additional monetary losses. Once all bills and records are in, our legal team prepares a demand package to send out to the adjuster.
Your claim then moves into negotiations. Riddle and Brantley strives to settle your case for its maximum value and in a timely manner. Additionally, if the insurance company undervalues your claim, our attorneys have the experience to try your case in court.

- Accident investigation
- Recovery and preservation of evidence

Recent Car Accident Results
Since 1985, our car accident lawyers have recovered millions of dollars in compensation for North Carolina car accident victims and their families (see disclaimer below). Recent results include:
- $2,750,00 | Car Accident — When our client was hit head on, he sustained serious injuries including various fractures in his neck, arms and leg. Senior Litigation attorney, Donald Dunn, took this case to arbitration and received a $2.75 million verdict for his client. The insurance company also received 1-million-dollar declaratory judgement them.
- $2,250,000 | Auto Accident & Wrongful Death — After our client was killed in a head on collision, the family hired attorney Gene Riddle. Our firm prepared to take this case to trail and advised the insurance company of our intentions. As a result, Riddle and Brantley secured a 2.25-million-dollar settlement for the family. This case has special significance to Gene Riddle because he knew the family personally. While we are never completely satisfied with the results in wrongful death cases, we strive to achieve justice for our client’s families.
- $1,000,000 | Auto Accident — In this case, attorneys Adam Smith and Gene Riddle represented a client with serious injuries. After signing the case, it became apparent that our client needed long term treatment. Therefore, we demanded that the defense settle this case for insurance limits, or we would file suit. We recognized that our client’s care required immediate funding and we did not want her to have to wait until her treatment had concluded. The insurance company agreed to tender the 1-million-dollar limits. Additionally, our attorneys negotiated medical bill reductions with some of the client’s providers.
