No one expects to get hurt. Yet, every year, millions of accidents leave victims across the Carolinas and the U.S. severely injured. Some may miss work for days or months as a result of their condition. Others may be permanently paralyzed or debilitated, forcing them to seek alternative means of income. A select unlucky few never recover and pass on as a result of their injuries.
We want to help you and family in your time of need, no matter how your injury happened. Auger & Auger represents clients in a variety of personal injury cases, including but not limited to:
Personal injury victims and their families often encounter tremendous costs as a result of their accident or incident. Fortunately, they can use the insurance system to pursue a liability claim against all relevant parties.
In the event that an agreement cannot be reached through the claims system, a personal injury lawsuit will be filed against all at-fault parties. Our personal injury lawyers are prepared to take a case to a jury trial if need be. We have fought for many clients’ cases through the court system and have obtained favorable verdicts as a result.
Common damages we seek for clients include compensation for:
Every personal injury case is unique, but there are a number of legal strategies that have similarities across multiple personal injury types.
For cases involving an accident that lead to an injury, we will likely pursue a claim based on a legal theory of negligence. In order for a person or a company to be found negligent, they must have committed an act — or failed to commit an act — that breached the expected duty of care, A duty of care refers to a responsibility to avoid behaviors or decisions that a “reasonable person” would know are dangerous and, thereby, likely to cause harm to someone else.
When a failure to uphold a duty of care directly results in an injury and causes real damages that a victim could recover through the legal system, then they have grounds to file a lawsuit based on negligence.
Defective products cases do not need to show negligence but rather that the product was used as intended and that the product caused harm. This type of case is referred to as a strict liability case.
Regardless of the case type, Auger & Auger will appoint clients with a personal injury lawyer who is familiar with the relevant laws and the typical procedure followed by successful past cases. We also do everything we can to gather evidence of the defendant’s negligence or the harmfulness of their products and how these dangerous conditions led directly to our clients’ injuries.
If possible, we attempt to show that the risks were foreseeable to the defendant and yet they continued anyways, making the risk of an injury like yours all but certain.
These general approaches coupled with case-specific strategies give each case a high chance of bringing in the maximum amount of compensation available under the law.
After you have been involved in a car accident, slip and fall, daycare center accident, or any case, you may be contacted by insurance employees or lawyers representing the defendant. While some cases have favorable outcomes for injury victims who cooperate with insurers and take their assessment of their damages at face value, countless more cases result in victims accepting a settlement that is far lower than the sum of their damages. As a result, their settlement quickly runs out, and they are left paying out of pocket for the costs of an injury that someone else caused.
In some cases, insurers and lawyers may try to dispute the costs of treating the injury or whether their client is even liable for the victims’ damages at all.
The central issue is this: insurers want to pay out as little as possible for an accident, and lawyers want their clients to avoid any liability if at all possible. What often ends up happening is that injured victims feel pressured into accepting low settlements or no settlement at all because they incorrectly believe that their case isn’t a strong one.
At Auger & Auger, we vigorously fight these tactics and stand up for the legal rights of our hurt clients. Lead attorney Arlene P. Auger formerly represented large insurance companies, so our lawyers understand the tactics insurers use when deciding whether to pay for a claim and how much to value it. Using evidence and proven legal strategies, we give clients the highest chances of successfully obtaining compensation for all of their damages, not just some.
Auger & Auger wants to help you. Because we operate on a contingency basis and your first consultation appointment is always free, there is no risk to learning more about your legal options after your injury.
You can appoint a personal injury attorney to represent you and who will dig deep through the facts of your case to find out the best strategies for your unique situation. We always keep clients informed of their rights and options, advising them as to their best choices but never forcing them to make a decision they don’t feel comfortable with.
By negotiating with insurers, filing paperwork on behalf of victims, and digging up any evidence we can find to back your case, we give you and your family a strong chance of resuming as close to a normal life as you can get after your injury.
