personal injury law

  1. Call the police and get a police report
  2. Do Not Move the Vehicles Until the Police Arrive
  3. Take Photos of the Vehicles and your Injuries
  4. Get Medical Treatment
  5. Call a Lawyer BEFORE Talking to any Insurance Companies

The answer is YES. The insurance companies will take advantage of individuals without legal representation. They may make you an offer and ask you to sign documents in order to settle your case as quick as possible and for as little money as possible. You should talk to an attorney before signing anything or accepting any settlement from an insurance company. You should understand your rights and what your case is worth before signing anything. There are many aspects to a personal injury claim and navigating that on ones own is a full time job; Hire Barbara J, Bowers to represent you and she will handle every aspect of your claim, taking the stress away from you so that you can heal from your injuries.

NO, not without a lawyer. North Carolina uses a system called contributory negligence to determine fault after an accident has occurred. If the insurance company finds that you contributed in anyway to the accident you will not receive any compensation; that is why it is so important to speak to a lawyer first. Barbara J. Bowers will meet with you to do a Case Assessment for Free, and if you decide to hire her you will never have to speak to the insurance company without her present.

What if I can’t afford a lawyer? Your consultation and case assessment with Barbara Bowers is FREE. If you decide to hire her, then she does not get paid unless you do!

Yes! Do not wait to get the medical attention you need. Seeking medical treatment after an accident is very important, even if you do not think your injuries are serious. At the time of the accident you may not feel injured, but as time passes you may develop pain and begin to feel the injuries you sustained in the accident. It is very important to see a Doctor as soon as possible after the accident to document what happened to you and to get you the treatment you need to heal. If you don’t have health insurance you may be able to get your medical bills paid through your case.

There are statutes of limitations that apply to your personal injury, so the best thing you can do is meet with an attorney as soon as possible to learn how much time you have to file a claim.

Barbara was a referral and came highly recommended from one of our friends, who had used her practice. From our first meeting she made us feel comfortable and at ease with her genuine concern and great sense of humor. In dealings with her regarding our case, we found a very straightforward, smart and confident Attorney. Also, one who keeps you informed and returns your calls in a timely manner. My husband and I highly recommend her without reservation, and would definitely seek her services in the future, if needed.

Barbara is the BEST! I've worked with her on both business legal needs and personal legal advisement. She's a breeze to work with, truly cares about her clients and has utmost integrity in her work. Her upfront pricing structure is in the client's best interest as there are no surprises at the end. Most lawyers charge by the hour not by the job, so having this information upfront gives the client peace of mind that they are being taken care of. Highly recommend!!

I hired Barbara for two separate cases in 2019 and 2020, and both times I found her to be professional, responsive, and knowledgeable. I feel like she got the best possible outcome both times and highly recommend her to anyone seeking an attorney.

Barbara is quick witted, experienced, and concise. Knowledgeable and capable. Easy to work with, keeping an open line of communication throughout the course of her professional legal advice to me.
