How serious do my child’s injuries from a car crash need to be to justify an insurance claim? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

The most basic question to answer here is whether your child required emergency medical treatment or hospitalization. Insurance companies are completely justified in denying insignificant claims.

Enlisting the advice and representation of an experienced North Carolina personal injury lawyer will help a family collect, organize and present the medical evidence needed to substantiate claims on behalf of a minor child.
