I was injured in a car accident while a law student and learned the hard way how the insurance companies treat the victims who need their help the most. From that point on I put the practice of tax law behind me and decided to exclusively handle cases involving personal injury. I saw firsthand how the insurance companies treated people and knew that I could have a major impact on the lives of my clients.

 

I have been practicing injury law in North Carolina for over 20 years. I am married and have two sons (and three dogs). My law practice is a major part of my life where I work with some exceptional people including my wife who is also a personal injury attorney. She worked with the insurance carriers early on in her career and brought an invaluable insight into their inner workings to our practice.

 

I am an avid skier, biker and hockey player. I work out regularly at a local Crossfit and am active in my Church and my sons' Boy Scout troop. I have also been active in the community with coaching of a local middle school football team and helping with one of our local high school Rugby programs.

 

If you are looking for an attorney to help you, or if you simply have a question, please give me a call. We can help. The call as well as the consultation is free!

Yours Truly,

Herb Auger

Grateful for your help.
After I got rear ended at the beginning of my final year of Nursing School, I reached out to Auger and Auger. I was actually referred by another client of theirs who assured me they would help me. My schedule was already so busy, I was stressed about doctors visits, hospital bills ect... Well fortunately for me they handled everything from finding me a doctor for my injuries, my bills from the emergency room and all contact with the insurance agency. Actually the first time I even had to come to theIr office was when the settlement was released. I can’t thank them enough, I can’t image how I would have made it through such a hard time without their assistance. I highly recommend!

Excellent service
Herb and his team did a great job assisting us after a car wreck in Charlotte. He arrived at the hospital shortly after I called and provided excellent services for me, my grandmother and her husband. I highly recommend going through Auger and Auger for those involved in auto accidents!

Life saver!
I can't thank this law firm enough for the wonderful service they delivered to our family. After the awful motorcycle accident injury my son suffered in Asheville NC last year, we just didn't know what to do, until we called Auger & Auger law. Mr. Auger and Mr. Gillespie gave us hope, and finally the justice and compensation Tyler deserved for the injuries from the drunk driver. Thank you both for listening, and more importantly, caring for our family in our hour of need.

Review
Herb Auger had a lot of knowledge from previous incidents that were similar to mine and this knowledge proved to be helpful for my case. He collected information and worked with multiple insurance companies to ensure I received compensation. He's very amicable as a person and lawyer, he knows when to be a lawyer but he has no problem giving friendly advice. He worked quickly and he is very easy to contact. I am also impressed with how quickly he settled my case considering the severity. I can say with confidence that Mr, Auger exceeded my expectations and I couldn't feel any safer now that I have this settlement. I am able to go snowboarding and know that I have the option of getting a knee replacement down the road if necessary but for now I can get back to classes and live carefree.

Best lawyer hands down
Auger and Auger law firm was a life saver. I was involved in my first ever auto accident and I was injured. I had so much stress dealing with my insurance company, trying to understand the process, enduring their run around about my case. It became to much for me so I decided to give Auger and Auger a try. Best decision! My only regret was not calling them sooner. Mr. Herb Auger was so kind to me, He explained the process easily,walked me through any questions I had, and He was swift in handling my case. Mr and Mrs Auger kept me up to date on all the details between my insurance company and them. I could relax and try to get well while they handled everything. It was a quick and effortless process and I was happy with their service and my settlement. Would recommend Auger and Auger to everyone!

Thumbs up
Was hurt in an auto accident, Auger is the way to go to. Help me through every step of the process. Staff is friendly, and if your lawyer isn't avaiable someone could gladly answer your questions.

Great customer service.
I've never contacted a lawyer before regarding an accident. I had no idea on what to expect and how long the process would be. Auger and Auger staff emailed me weekly and called to check on my health. All of my questions was answered and staff was always friendly. I felt like I was being supported throughout this process. I wasn't haggled by insurance companies and my claim was handled quickly and I was satisfied with my experience... thank you Auger and Auger for making this overwhelming experience easier to deal with.

Very Happy Client
I was as passenger in a vehicle that was hit by a driver who ran a red light. The vehicle I was in spun 360 and flipped onto its side and I sustained a head injury. I contacted Herb Auger, and he handled my case expertly. His firm always kept me in the loop as to what was going on with my case, and anytime I had a question they were just a quick phone call away. I am so thankful that I hired Mr. Auger to handle my case for me. Not only did he get me a settlement I was happy with, he made my recovery stress free by gathering all of my medical bills and dealing with the insurance company for me. I hope to never be in a situation like this again, but if I am I will definitely call Auger & Auger!

Great Team of Committed Lawyers
Herb Auger recently assisted my with a personal injury case due to an accident that I was apart of in March! As a result, Mr. Auger worked alongside his team to ensure that I was paired with a great Chiropractor and that I received the best treatment possible. I was always able to communicate with him when needed. Mr. Auger was very professional throughout my entire case. I highly recommend him.

Vehicle Accident
My father, a senior citizen, was injured in an accident after the van he was being transported in was rear-ended by another driver. He experienced pain & injury, many medical appointments, surgery, and rehab. Retaining Auger & Auger was the BEST thing that I could have ever done for my father. Their knowledge and guidance made the legal process easy and less stressful for my dad & me. In addition, my dad received a nice settlement. I would recommend Auger & Auger to anyone in need of excellent legal advice or representation.

Mr. Auger and his firm did everything to ensure my claims were managed efficiently and successfully. His firm came highly recommended, and I would also highly recommend him. Thank you

The best first experience.
Back in March I was in an accident. I was hit behind very hard. One day later I was feeling great pain. I went to go see a doctor and found out i had some pretty bad back issues. I called Auger and Auger because all of the Medical lingo was very confusing. I spoke with Hunter at Auger and Auger and he was very helpful, sincere and helped me understand the entire process, I was so happy I got a lawyer at Auger and Auger to help me with my case. Hunter always kept me informed and updated, and my case closed a couple of months ago.

excellent service!
i was in a motorcycle accident in earlier in the year. shortly after the crash i contacted Auger &Auger Law and met with Mr. Auger about my crash. he was very nice and helpful and gave me all the information i needed and asked for. during the process of recovering him and Mr. Hunter did a great job of handling the insurance company. and keeping track of my medical bills and damages to my bike. after i was healed and released from my doctor he and Mr. Hunter worked very fast to get settle my case and get me the maximum amount of money that we both felt was right. once the case was settled they moved fast to get the check and get it in my hands ASAP i would never have been able to get a settlement any where near what i did without there help.
