Ample experience with a variety of accident scenarios
As the county seat of Buncombe County, Asheville is the largest city in western North Carolina, with a population of more than 85,000 people. With major arteries, such as I-26, US 25, US 70, and US 74 bringing in traffic from four directions, and I-240 and I-40 looping the city, Asheville has some of the most congested traffic in the state. This leads to aggressive and distracted driving that inevitably causes a variety of accidents, including:
- Rear-end collisions
- Head-on collisions
- T-bone crashes
According to the University of North Carolina Highway Safety Research Center, there were 4,340 reported motor vehicle crashes in Asheville in 2015, inflicting 1,109 injuries and resulting in 16 fatalities. In wider Buncombe County, there were a total of 7,157 accidents reported, causing 1,966 injuries and 35 deaths.
Proving liability for Asheville car accidents
Our determined accident attorneys thoroughly investigate your accident to uncover the causes that can settle the liability issue in your favor, such as:
- Distracted driving
- Drunk driving
- Failure to yield right of way
- Fatigued driving
- Improper signaling
- Running red light or stop sign
- Unsafe maneuvering
Sometimes municipal, state or federal authorities can be held liable for hazardous road conditions due to poor maintenance, unsafe construction, or faulty design.
How hiring a heavyweight can help your accident claim
Because North Carolina’s contributory negligence law bars your recovery if you share any responsibility for the accident, you must be able to prove that another driver or drivers were fully at fault. Defense attorneys are eager to prove injured plaintiffs did something — anything! — that contributed to the accident so they can get their client and the insurance company off the hook. Even when liability is clear, insurance companies use lowball offers and delay tactics to wear you down and get you to settle for less than your case is worth. But with our heavyweight legal team on your side, you can more than match any large insurance company.
