Capable of Handling All Types of Auto Collisions
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 in Car Accident Claims in North Carolina
Our experienced Asheville car accident attorneys can thoroughly investigate your accident to uncover what caused it and who is liable.
Some of the most common causes of car accidents include:
- Distracted driving
- Drunk driving
- Failure to yield the right-of-way
- Fatigued driving
- Improper signaling
- Running a red light or stop sign
- Unsafe maneuvering
In many cases, a negligent motorist is liable for your injuries and other damages. Sometimes, however, municipal, state, or federal authorities can be held liable for hazardous road conditions due to poor maintenance, unsafe construction, or faulty design. An auto manufacturer or designer may also be liable if a defective vehicle design or car part led to the accident that caused your injuries.
Why You Need a Heavyweight on Your Side
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 party was fully at fault. Defense attorneys are usually 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. They may even try to get you to settle for less than your case is worth. However, with our heavyweight legal team on your side, you can level the playing field against any large insurance company.
