Car Accident Lawyer

Car accidents are an unfortunate inevitability for thousands of North Carolinians every year.  Even the most cautious and experienced drivers can’t control the behavior of others on the road. Poor driving habits, distractions and inclement weather all mean that you could find yourself involved in a wreck, despite your best efforts.   When you are involved in a car accident, your life changes instantly.  The stress of dealing with your injuries, medical bills, vehicle damage repairs, lost wages, and other factors can quickly pile up and make you feel overwhelmed.  It is normal for people to feel depressed, anxious, and stressed following a major event like a car crash. 

At Minick Law, we know how devastating a car crash can be for you and your family.  Our goal is to provide you with exceptional legal counsel, while supporting you in every aspect of the challenges you face.  With a Minick Law car accident lawyer by your side, you can be confident that you will be taken care of, and that your case will be handled with care and attention to detail.  You may be asking yourself many questions:  Who is at fault?  Who will pay my medical bills and compensate me for time missed from work? How do I go about starting the process of getting back on track?  At Minick Law, P.C., an experienced accident lawyer is waiting to help you answer these questions.

No one should be responsible for an accident that wasn’t their fault. You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, vehicle damage, lost wages, and pain & suffering.  An experienced Minick Law car accident lawyer is standing by to help guide you through the process, providing skillful legal counsel and personalized compassionate care.

What will your car accident lawyer do to help win your case?

A car accident attorney’s services may include:

  • Speaking to the investigating officer
  • Locating witnesses
  • Obtaining photographs of where the injury took place
  • Reviewing your medical records
  • Speaking to your doctors
  • Reviewing your medical bills
  • Communicating with the insurance company
  • Reviewing potential lost wages
  • Negotiating a settlement
  • Filing a lawsuit if necessary

At Minick Law, P.C., we will not charge anything up front to handle your case – instead the attorney is paid a percentage of whatever settlement they can recover for you. The Minick Law firm has successfully recovered compensation for all kinds of vehicle accidents, including:

  • Automobile accidents
  • Commercial truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Bus accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Vehicle rollover accidents

What to do if you are involved in a car crash:

If you’ve been injured in a crash that is not your fault, you will need to ensure that you have all of the information you will need to file a personal injury claim against the insurance company of the at fault driver. A car accident lawyer will help you navigate what to do after a car accident to ensure that your claim is not harmed by a simple mistake. Follow these steps to handle the situation.


You should obtain photographs of all the vehicles involved and the location of the accident. You should obtain phone numbers for any eye-witnesses. Contact the police department that responds to your accident and obtain the accident report. Take photographs of any of your injuries. For more information, see our blog post about ‘What to do after you’ve been in a car accident?’

The sooner you contact a car accident lawyer the better. Your attorney can try to ensure that the investigation of the accident is thorough, and will have much more experience investigating accidents. A Minick Law Attorney will also take over all communication with the insurance company of the at fault driver, ensuring that anything said to the insurance company cannot be used against you later on in the case. A lawyer will also advise you on how to move forward getting treatment for your injuries.

Do not talk to the insurance company:

Very shortly after your accident, you may get a phone call from the insurance company of the other vehicles involved. The purpose of this call is to get you to say something that they will use against you. They want you to say you contributed (see: My case is being denied based on contributory negligence, why?) to the accident in some minor way so that they can deny your claim. They want you to say you are uninjured so that they can refuse to pay for any injuries that may show up a few days or weeks later. You do not have to talk to the insurance company – hire a car accident lawyer and let them do it for you. For more information, see our blog on “How to handle an insurance adjuster”.

Seek medical treatment immediately after the accident:

Do not wait to get treatment after you’ve been in an accident. Go to the Emergency Room or your doctor immediately. Many claims are denied because the injured person waits days or weeks before they follow up with medical treatment. After immediately seeking medical attention after the accident, do not go longer than 3-4 days without seeking additional treatment. Failure to seek medical attention is a common reason insurance companies deny injury claims. Speak to your car accident lawyer for more information.

Almost immediately following my auto accident, I began meeting with attorneys to select the right one to represent me. A well-respected member of the community recommended Attorney Denton and described him as ‘intelligent, hard-working and all in all, a good guy—one you want on your side.’ Attorney Denton lived up to those expectations. In fact, he exceeded them.

We went to Minick Law after working with another attorney for one year and receiving no results. Lakota Denton took our case and in one week he got more done than the other attorney did in one year. He was amazing. He kept in constant contact with us, was professional yet personal, and resolved our case in a little over one month with positive results. The entire law firm made us feel like we mattered. As for Mr. Denton, he made us feel like a friend that truly cared about us, not just our case. We recommend this law firm without hesitation. Mr. Denton, we don’t quite know how to thank you. You put our minds at ease and took a huge weight off our shoulders. You made it completely painless for us. You taught us that there are caring and honest law firms out there and Minick Law is at the top of the list, with Lakota Denton being truly outstanding in this category. Thank you again!

I was hit form behind a few years ago. Nationwide insurance refused to pay any of medical bills after the accident – they were very rude about it. I hired Attorney Denton to help me with the case. He filed a lawsuit and we prepared for trial. On the day before trial was supposed to start, Attorney Denton got Nationwide to offer much more money than they had ever offered me. I was very happy with the outcome. I recommend Minick Law and Attorney Denton to anyone who needs legal services.

Attorney Blake Marcus handled my case in a very professional manner. He was very knowledgeable regarding the law, informative, and provided excellent assistance for my issues. It was also very apparent of the level of support he receives from Attorney James Minick, as well as their administrative staff. I would not hesitate to use Minick Law for any future needs and will be recommending them to both friends and family.
