Evidence in North Carolina Car Accidents
If you have been involved in a car accident through no fault of your own, North Carolina provides you the right to recover for the injuries or losses you have suffered. But, to recover you will have to prove both the liability of the other party and your own damages. The best way to prove these things in your claim is through the use of evidence.
Generally, settling your own claim with the at fault driver’s insurance provider is more favorable when compared to drafting and filling a lawsuit. Settlement negotiations are less formal, less expensive, less time-consuming, and they allow the parties more leeway in determining the amount of recovery. However, if you choose to settle your own claim, you will want to prepare your evidence and your claim as if you were heading to trial.
