Injured in a Jacksonville Car Accident?
Most serious car accidents will give victims the right to pursue financial compensation through the North Carolina civil justice system. A civil claim could result in payment for your medical costs, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other damages. A conversation with a Jacksonville car accident lawyer at Riddle & Brantley can help you learn if you have grounds for a claim. We are happy to speak with you and determine if we can help.
In the meantime, learn the four main elements you need in making a claim for a car accident injury:
- All drivers owe other drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians on the roadway duties of care. In general, drivers must take reasonable care not to cause accidents and injuries.
- Breach of duty. The driver (or another party) must have acted negligently in some way, such as texting and driving, drunk driving, speeding, or breaking a traffic law.
- The driver’s breach of duty must have caused your car accident and related damages.
- You must have suffered damages because of the accident. Damages may include physical injuries, property damages, and emotional distress.

Justice for Auto Accident Victims
North Carolina is an at-fault car accident insurance state. This means that the party that caused the crash will be responsible for paying for everyone else’s damages. Generally, the at-fault driver’s insurance company will pay. It is up to you as a victim to prove the other party’s fault.
Our Jacksonville car accident attorneys and our team are skilled auto accident investigators and can determine the defendant or party allegedly responsible for our client’s injuries. We even have a team of retired law enforcement investigators on staff to help lead these investigations and prove liability.
If the injuries are especially severe or the defendant’s insurance company won’t properly settle your claim, we can take your case to court in pursuit of full and fair compensation.
Statute of Limitations
You have three years from the date of your auto accident to file a personal injury claim with the North Carolina courts. If your loved one passed away in a car accident, you have two years from the date of death to file a wrongful death claim.
Don’t wait – call our firm today at 1-800-525-7111. Justice Counts for you and your loved ones.
The longer you wait, the more difficult it may be to win your case. Please call 1-800-525-7111 today or complete the short form below for a FREE case review with a Jacksonville car accident lawyer at Riddle & Brantley.
