Car wrecks cases should be simple. The person who caused the wreck should
be responsible, and their insurance company should pay. However, it is
never that easy.
Attorney Roane Has Been in Your Shoes
I was in a bad wreck myself, and that is the whole reason that I went to
law school. First, you will have fights over your property damage. The
insurance company will not want to pay a fair value. You will have to
get a rental car. The insurance company will fight over the cost of repairs,
types of parts and the value of your car now that it is wrecked. Even
if you get the property damage settled, the insurance company may try
and send you releases or paperwork that will void your injury claim.
You do not have to go through this alone! Discuss your case with Roane

What to Expect from the Insurance Company
The personal injury claim from a car wreck is an even harder fight. The
insurance company will look at the accident report and see if you complained
of pain at the scene. The police officer will write a "4" next
to your name at the bottom, which means complained of pain at the scene
(A "5" means no complaints).
The insurance company will then look at your medical records and evaluate
various factors, including:
- They will see if the doctors failed to write something down. If they didnt
check a box for "neck complaints", the insurance will argue
that you had no neck injury.
- After the ER or your family doctor, the insurance will look to see if you
have a gap in treatment.
After your car wreck, did you follow up with a doctor, how long did you
wait, where you working during this gap in treatment? The insurance company
will argue that you were hurt on the job and not in the car wreck.
To add insult to injury, the insurance company will often deny liability
even in a clear case. In rear end collisions, they are starting to say
it was your fault. They will say you stopped your car too fast, failed
to put on a blinker, stopped for no reason, etc. These days they will
do anything to avoid paying anything for car wrecks and It is incredibly
That is where we come in.
I tell insurance adjusters all of the time, "if you would just treat
people right, I would be out of a job." Getting them to pay a dime
without a lawyer is like pulling teeth.

Why You Need Roane Law By Your Side
We Are Experienced
We are a car wreck, auto accident law firm that has been down this road
many times. Our attorneys and paralegals know how to handle all aspects
of motor vehicle cases.
We will do the following on your behalf:
- Gather medical records
- Talk to witnesses
- Obtain necessary documents
- Argue your case
We simply have more leverage, because they know that you can't do anything
about it. They won't pay unless they know that you can make them.
You can't make them without a good lawyer. A good lawyer will build
the case thoroughly.
Don't give them an excuse not to pay. Your attorney will need to work hard to prove your case.'
At Roane Law, we can use all of the following, among other, pieces of evidence
to build a case on your behalf
- Photos of the wreck scene
- Photos of the vehicles involved
- Criminal check on the other driver
- Civil check on the other driver
Our Results Speaks Louder than Words
Let me reiterate that statement, "
attorneys must work hard...". While paralegals are critical and work hard,
attorneys get cases settled for full value. Adjusters talk to attorneys differently.
Adjusters know that we know the law. Adjusters can hear us argue the case
as we are going to argue to the jury. Paralegals will try their best,
but it just isn't the same.
Make sure that your attorney is handling your car wreck case. Insist on
it. Whatever you do, don't get stuck with a "case manager"
who handles your negotiations. If the only person you ever talk to about
your wreck is a "case manager" then you have a problem. Insist
that the attorney talk to you, and make sure that the attorney knows what
they are doing. You wouldn't believe how many clueless attorneys are
Ask your attorney for a resume. Ask him or her: "how many car wreck cases have you tried in front
of a jury in the last five years, and what were the results?" Simple
question, so insist on a simple answer. If the attorney dodges this question,
then you know that they don't have the experience and results that matter.
Other Lawyers Know: In 2007, James Roane was voted Young Gun Legal Elite
- top attorney under 40 years old by over 17,000 fellow North Carolina
attorneys in Business NC magazine. While any lawyer with money can advertise,
you can't buy votes from your fellow attorneys. Instead, these attorneys
have cases with, and against you. So, they know the good and the bad ones.
Since other attorneys picked James Roane, shouldn't you?
You Need a Lawyer Who Works Hard
After an automobile accident, it is vital to to take quick action to
document the facts of the accident. Insurance companies will interview witnesses, take photos of your car,
the property damage to the vehicle and possibly look into your insurance
Our Greensboro car wreck lawyers believe in rapidly sending an investigator
to the scene of the accident to:
- Obtain photographs of the scene of the wreck
- Take statements from any witnesses or other drivers involved
- Gather any other relevant evidence
By taking a pro-active approach to the investigation, we can ensure that
evidence or witnesses are not lost and that your car wreck injury claim
is handled right. This is what it takes for car wreck attorneys to maximize
recovery on cases, and we have the track record to prove it.
Once you are being treated for your serious car wreck injuries, we will
interview your doctors to determine the extent of your injuries and what
future treatment and prognosis you can expect. This will allow us to predict
what kind of injury compensation you will need to recover. In addition,
we will ensure any property damage and lost wages are compensated for as well.
We Can Take the Trouble Out of Your Case
Our auto accident lawyers will normally file a lawsuit on your behalf in
order to ensure maximum recovery for you. While you may want to settle
quickly, the insurance company will rarely do this and will instead offer
less than full amounts. By filing suit, you will increase your chances
Should this settlement fail, Roane Law car wreck attorneys are ready to
take your case to trial. Car wreck cases may seem easy to take to a jury,
but a lot goes into the preparation for trial. If your attorney is unprepared,
your chances of winning are reduced. Also, car wreck
case law can be very difficult. So, if you are considering bringing a case or preparing
for trial, make sure that your car wreck attorney is also ready.
Make sure your attorney knows all about the following:
- Medical treatment
- Lost wages
- Other damages you have
You must also make sure that your car wreck attorney has handled large
cases before. For example, at Roane Law we have
successfully obtained multi-million dollar recoveries in catastrophic car
Following are some of the car wreck cases we handle on a regular basis:

ask about their results first.
