Brian Elston law has a vast amount of experience as a personal injury attorney, representing individuals that have been injured and their families of those killed as the result of the negligent or wrongful conduct of another person or company in Asheville, and Western North Carolina.
We know what our clients are are up against when they have suffered a personal injury. We know that there is usually an insurance company on the other side, whose mission is to resolve our client’s case by expending as little money as possible. We know because one of our attorneys, Brian Elston, used to work for an insurance company. His experience as an insurance adjuster is why he now represents those that have suffered a personal injury.
We believe our clients need answers to the questions that arise when they are injured. Who pays for my doctor’s bills? Should I go back to work? Why am getting letters from creditors? How much insurance coverage it out there? What is my claim worth?
We also believe our clients need help in leveling the playing field against an insurance company. A personal injury is a very uncommon event for an individual. The individual may not know what they are entitled to, and unfortunately, without an attorney, their only source of what they should receive for their injury is from the insurance company. The problem, however, is that the insurance company’s job is to resolve the claim by using as few resources as possible. In other words, an insurance company and those that have suffered an injury are not on the same team.
Our team helps those injured by ensuring that they receive what they are entitled to. We represent individuals that have been suffered bodily injury in whatever form: motor vehicle accidents, car accidents, injuries at work, trucking accidents, pedestrian accidents, slip and falls, and construction accidents just to name a few.
