The accident and injury lawyers at Auger & Auger are dedicated to providing compassionate and client-focused representation to injury victims in need. Founded in 1995, our firm is dedicated to serving injury victims and families throughout the Carolinas when they need legal representation most: after an accident. We want to help members of our community get the compensation they need to move forward after their injury.
Over the last 27 years we have recovered hundreds of millions for our clients, truly life-changing money. Insurance companies make money when they pay as little as possible, so they are incentivized to lowball you and even deny coverage. Our job is simple: we extract the maximum settlement possible from insurance companies, enabling our clients to get back to their lives and receive full compensation for their loss. The difference in treatment covered can be as stark as a client being able to regain their ability to walk, while the insurer would have them confined to a wheelchair. Families are often torn apart in the worst accidents, and while life cannot be recovered, we work to set their dependents right for life.
Our performance has earned us admission to the Academy of Truck Accident Attorneys, Million Dollar Advocates Forum, and have earned a spot on the Top 40 Under 40 Trial Lawyer list nationwide.
If you or a loved one was in an accident, it is critical to speak with a personal injury lawyer right away. Attempting to proceed without the help of an experienced lawyer can jeopardize your chances of obtaining the compensation that you deserve.
We are eager to serve you, and look forward to working on your case together.

9 Things the Insurance Company
Does Not Want You to Know About Your Car Accident Claim
After you call the police, make sure you get the name and address of the other driver and vehicle owner (if driver and owner are not the same), as well as the name and policy number of the insurance company for the other car. Take photographs of the accident scene and the vehicles involved before they are moved. Get the name and phone number of all witnesses-do not count on the investigating officer to do this. Take the business card for the investigating officer, as well as the accident report reference number or complaint number.
Immediately! The first hours and days after a car wreck are critical, and mistakes or oversights can harm your claim. Insurance companies know this is when you are most vulnerable, and most likely to misspeak. Any misstatement or downplaying of your injuries will give the insurance company the reason to try to diminish the value of your claim.
After you speak with an attorney. Better yet, let us file the claim for you. We can handle all dealings with the insurance company, and once you retain a lawyer, they can no longer contact you. Remember, what you say to the insurance company can later be used against you.
Yes. Often times, particularly with soft tissue injuries, the pain does not set in until 2 or 3 days after the accident. Furthermore, a post-accident examination by a doctor could reveal injuries that could later have devastating effect. When it comes to your health, better safe than sorry, and you don't want the insurance carrier to use a delay in treatment against you.
If you are covered by health insurance, make sure all medical providers file with your health insurance. You may have a coverage called Medical Payments, that can be used to pay your medical bills, and the automobile insurance for the driver that caused the wreck. If you were working at the time of the accident, you may be entitled to make a Workers' Compensation claim.
When you are injured due to someone else's actions, there are likely a thousand questions running through your mind. These may range from, "How long will it take to fully heal?" to, "How do I file a lawsuit against the person who hurt me?" While an experienced injury attorney can answer all of these questions, asking them all during your initial free consultation can take up valuable time. That's why we have compiled a list of frequently asked questions for common injuries.
I want to thank Josh and the team at Auger & Auger for all of their help with the questions I had. From the first time I called them they were all about helping me. They went out of their way to makes sure that all of my questions were answered and that I was in the know. They are prompt and also very good at responding to emails and phone calls. I know they are very busy with a lot of other clients, but I never felt that way when I spoke to them. Thank you so much, I definitely will recommend you and your law firm to my friends and family that may need help with a car accident or other personal injury problem.
Great law firm! They specialize in personal injury and car accident law, so if you are injured and it was not your fault – give them a call. When I first called I was offered a free accident report, free consultation and there was not any upfront cost to hire them. The way their contracts are set up is that they only get paid if they are successful. That made it a lot easier and I really had a very good experience dealing with them. Thanks to Josh and all of the staff and lawyers.
The people at Auger & Auger were very friendly when I spoke with them. They offer to help find car accident reports for free and they are not pushy. Their website also has a ton of information about car accident law, dog bite injuries and work accidents. They are definitely a great resource for anyone needing help with a car accident claim or other personal injury case.
The experience I’ve had with Josh has been most incredible. There’s no doubt that this firm has an incredible team and integrity beyond reproach. Will recommend Josh and this firm to any friends who may need incredible legal representation.
