In North Carolina, if I am the defendant in an auto accident case, can I defend myself legally? 2 Answers as of February 08, 2011

I rear-ended a car after its driver slammed on his brakes, and the driver did not appear to suffer from injuries. He even declined going to the doctor. Last month, I got notice that the driver claims to have a $50,000 bill for pain and suffering. What can I do? Is my insurance going to help me?

Your insurance carrier is obligated to represent you. You can always rep yourself but no need. Make sure to connect with your own company.

Your insurance should provide a defense for you if you have complied with the policy. If you haven't already reported the accident and the claim to your company, you should do so at once.
