I was struck by a pick-up Truck while riding my bicycle. I suffered numerous severe injuries which required a prolonged stay in ICU along with months of rehabilitation and recovery. The subsequent bills and expenses were extensive, and I strongly believed that I was not at fault. The Insurance company of the driver of the Truck that hit me refused to accept liability for the accident. It soon became apparent that I would need legal representation if I hoped to claim the settlement which I felt that I deserved to cover my losses and medical expenses.
I contacted a number of Law firms, including many large, publicized, and heavily advertised firms. Though, initially they all were willing to review my case, some even going as far as to investigate the accident, none felt it worth their time, expense, or odds to take on the case. You see, North Carolina is one of only a few Contributory Negligence States instituting regulations which, to a degree, favor the Insurance industry in cases where responsibility is not 100 percent clear. The fact that I was on a bicycle when I was struck only served to cloud the responsibility that much more. I had all but given up hope of receiving any settlement at all when by chance I met Judy Vincent-Pope.
I simply cannot offer Judy and her staff enough praise!!! Her professionalism, dedication, and dogged determination are unmatched in the legal field, and I myself, come from a long family line of attorneys. Mrs. Vincent-Pope never backed down, thoroughly researched and pursued my case, took a very personal interest in me, maintained open communications, and showed the utmost respect for my concerns. Mrs. Vincent-Pope won full settlement for me, but more importantly, she allowed me to regain my dignity, and for that, I am forever grateful. I highly recommend the Vincent-Pope Law Firm above all others in cases which involve accident injury.
