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:
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.
