Protecting Your Rights

When It Matters Most

Compassionate Auto Accident Lawyers

Automobile accidents are responsible for some of the most serious injuries that people sustain nationwide. Although the statistics for collisions are on the rise, drivers do not seem to be any more careful on the road. As a result, careless and negligent drivers cause accidents that leave innocent parties like you injured. If you or someone you care about has been hurt as a result of an irresponsible or reckless driver, you should speak with a Charlotte auto accident lawyer.

At Elam & Rousseaux, PLLC, we have more than 90 years of collective experience representing parties who have been hurt in a wide range of different accidents. Call 704-859-8979 or email us today to set up your free consultation with our Charlotte auto accident attorneys.

We offer representation for the following types of accidents:

Don’t Wait To File A Claim

Every state institutes a time limit on how long an injury victim has to file a claim before they lose their right to recover compensation, which is called the statute of limitations. In North Carolina, the statute of limitations for car accident cases is the same for any personal injury case: three years from the date of injury. If you would like to file a claim against the government or government entity, you have the same amount of time to do so, but the process to file is a bit different. An attorney from our firm will be able to explain how these laws may affect your case.

Is North Carolina A No-Fault State?

When determining fault in a car accident, most states have a no-fault policy. North Carolina is one of only a few states that follow the “at-fault” policy, which could potentially leave you in a compromising situation. With the fault-based system, the at-fault driver must pay for any damages as a result of the accident, including noneconomic damages. This system can make a car accident claim complicated, so it’s in your best interest to hire a knowledgeable Charlotte auto accident attorney. We will work hard to make sure that you receive the full and fair compensation that you deserve after an accident.

Providing Compassionate Representation

When we take on a new client, we are committed to treating you like you are an individual and not a statistic or a number. We know just how stressful and life-alerting being involved in an accident can be. From the moment you are in the collision, your life may be drastically changed. While you are trying to heal, you should not have to fight with the other party or with insurance companies. Let our Charlotte auto accident attorneys and team act as your advocates.

We are here to ensure that your best interests are represented and to work toward a positive outcome on your behalf.

Recovering Compensation For You And Your Family

After an accident, you will be dealing with a significant amount of bills and expenses. If another person caused your accident, you should not have to pay for these yourself. We work to recover the maximum amount of compensation from the responsible party, and we do not charge any fees unless we win. Call us now at 704-859-8979 to make an appointment.
