Burlington Car Accident Attorneys
Heavyweight legal representation for victims of traffic accidents
The Piedmont Region of North Carolina, where the City of Burlington is located, offers a mild climate for residents to enjoy year-round and a dynamic economy where opportunities abound. But a serious auto accident can turn opportunity to hardship in the blink of an eye. Suddenly, you’re dealing with relentless pain, you’re unable to work and your medical bills are piling up. If a negligent or reckless driver caused your accident, you may be eligible to recover compensation for your losses. However, since North Carolina law is not always favorable to accident victims, you’ll need a heavyweight in your corner. Lanier Law Group, P.A. has been serving North Carolina accident victims since 1995.
We can help you with:
- property damage and rental car issues
- medical treatment — finding the right doctor
- health insurance issues — getting your medical bills paid even if you do not have health insurance.
We have built a reputation for robust representation that gets results.
Helping you prove liability for your Burlington car crash
According to the University of North Carolina Highway Safety Research Center, there were 1,851 reported motor vehicle crashes, 648 injuries, and five fatalities in Burlington in 2015. In Alamance County, where most of Burlington lies, there were 3,826 auto accidents, 1,267 injuries, and 23 deaths. For any of those victims to recover compensation, they must overcome North Carolina’s harsh contributory negligence law, which bars any recovery if the victim is even one percent responsible for the crash.
At Lanier Law Group, we thoroughly investigate your car crash to uncover facts that point to a defendant’s liability, such as:
- Cellphone use and other driver distractions
- Drowsy driving
- Drunk driving
- Failure to yield right of way
- Failure to signal
- Following too closely
- Running a traffic light or stop sign
- Unsafe maneuvering
Your accident might also have been caused by a defective car part or poor road maintenance. We consult accident reconstruction experts when necessary to build a compelling case.
Getting the greatest possible recovery for severe injuries
Car accidents, especially high speed crashes on major arteries such as I-40, I-85, US 70, and US 62, can easily cause disabling injuries and wrongful death. All accident victims should recover for the full extent of their losses, but when a victim has catastrophic injuries, the need for full compensation is especially urgent. Our attorneys have ample experience with severe accident cases to pursue damages for:
- Burn injuries
- Concussion and traumatic brain injuries
- Displaced fractures and crushed bones
- Herniated discs and compressed vertebrae
- Internal injuries
- Loss of limbs
- Neck and back injuries
- Wrongful death
We consult with a range of experts in medicine, rehabilitation, psychology and economics to present a complete picture of how your accident has affected your life and how it will continue to impact your future. We do everything possible to build a compelling case for full and fair compensation.
