Burlington Car Accident Lawyers
How Our Firm Can Help You
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. However, a serious auto accident can turn opportunity to hardship in the blink of an eye. Suddenly, you may be dealing with relentless pain, you may be unable to work, and your medical bills may be 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 personal injury law is not always favorable to accident victims, it’s a good idea to put a legal heavyweight in your corner. The Burlington car accident lawyers at Lanier Law Group can help you with everything from determining whether you have a claim to securing proper medical treatment to getting a rental car. No matter how your accident was caused or the injuries you have suffered, our team is here to provide you with the personalized legal counsel and dedicated representation you need and deserve.
Helping You Prove Liability for Your Accident
According to the University of North Carolina Highway Safety Research Center, there were 1,851 reported motor vehicle crashes, resulting in 648 injuries and 5 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 car accident victim 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 can conduct a thorough investigation into your car crash to uncover facts that point to a defendant’s liability, such as whether another driver:
- Was distracted or using a cell phone at the time of the accident
- Was fatigued or driving while drowsy
- Drove his/her vehicle while under the influence of alcohol/drugs
- Failed to yield the right-of-way
- Failed to signal before turning or changing lanes
- Was tailgating/following too closely
- Ran a traffic light or stop sign
- Was speeding
- Engaged in unsafe and/or illegal maneuvering
We can also investigate whether your accident might have been caused by a defective car part, a road hazard, or poor road maintenance. We consult accident reconstruction experts when necessary to build a compelling case.
Seeking Maximum Compensation for Severe Injuries
Car accidents, especially high-speed crashes on major North Carolina highways, 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 catastrophic injury cases, including those involving:
- Burn injuries
- Concussion and traumatic brain injuries
- Displaced fractures and crushed bones
- Herniated discs and compressed vertebrae
- Internal organ injuries
- Loss of limbs
- Neck and back injuries
- Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
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. Armed with this information, we do everything possible to build a compelling case for full and fair compensation.
