Simpsonville, SC asked in Criminal Law, DUI / DWI and Personal Injury for North Carolina

Q: My husband was hit by a lady in Bunc. Co NC, 3-25-17. Her ins wants us to sign papers releasing her for future probs.

My hubby saw "CAP" arrested@ scene but wasn't asked if he wanted to press charges & he wasn't notified of her court date. Her ins Co conceded the max of 30k BUT wants us to sign a "Release of ALL Claims NOT TO ENFORCE JUDGMENT" against the driver "CAP" & the man holding the policy, "CB". I found that he & "CAP" have MULTIPLE aliases & arrest records across the country. She WAS convicted of DWI 4-26-18 in NC due to THIS arrest--BUT she'd also been charged w/Sim Possess of Sch IV CS (M), reckless driving to endanger & drive wrong way on dual lane hwy--all dismissed!! "CB" & his wife "KPB" sold the place listed as "home" on ins 9/5/18. I've done a LOT of digging on "CAP" & "CB"--BOTH have arrest records in Many states as well as places to run. Hubby has a frozen shoulder DUE TO THIS & is facing surgery. We also KNOW "CB" has assets in LA worth $300k. "CAP" has $1mil in assets in NC. We have an injury lawyer. "CAP" wasn't charged for injuring my hubby. Issue?

A: What can you do? Really? You need an attorney and you likely have the type of case that personal injury attorney's would likely take on a contingent basis. So go shop around and hire an attorney before this gets mucked up any more than it may already be.
