Why You Can’t Sue the Insurance Company

It’s a common misconception in North Carolina that you can sue the insurance company. In a traditional automobile wreck case, your legal claim is technically against the at-fault driver—not his or her insurance company. The driver’s insurance company is obligated to hire an attorney to represent the driver if any claim is made against him or her up to the amount of insurance coverage purchased.

If the insurance company will not pay the fair value of your case, then your North Carolina auto accident lawyer is only allowed to sue the at-fault driver. We cannot sue the insurance company—even if your case was not negotiated fairly or in good faith.

Our North Carolina auto accident attorneys believe that insurance companies should be held accountable for denying claims without regard to fairness or what is right.
