Fighting for Your Full Recovery after a Serious Injury
The average weight of a passenger vehicle is around 4,000lbs. Even at low
speeds, a collision between two or more of these large vehicles can cause
injuries that take months or even years to fully heal. At high speeds,
a crash can be permanently disabling and
A violent car crash can produce
catastrophic injuries, such as:
The costs associated with a catastrophic injury can add up quick. The ambulance
ride alone can be anywhere from $700 to $1,000, not to mention the cost
of a hospital stay and other emergency treatment. To protect your future
after an accident, it's essential that you work with an experience car
accident attorney in Charlotte. Our firm will fight for the full amount
of compensation you are owed.
Should I Work with the Insurance Company?
Unfortunately, the mere fact that you’ve suffered a terrible injury
does not guarantee full or even partial compensation. Auto insurance companies
are often determined to pay as little as possible for injury claims, and
they may use tactics to attempt to settle your case for less than it is worth.
It is not advisable to settle with an insurance company on your own. When
you work with an experienced Charlotte car accident lawyer at Lanier Law
Group, you put decades of experience on your side. We can evaluate your
case at no cost to you. We can also thoroughly investigate the causes
of the accident and assemble the evidence necessary to help deliver favorable
results. We have a network of experts in accident reconstruction, medicine,
rehabilitation, and finance who can help build a compelling case aimed
at securing the maximum compensation you are owed.
Common Causes of Car Accidents in North Carolina
At Lanier Law Group, our personal injury attorneys regularly manage cases
arising from various types of traffic accidents, including but not limited to:
- Rear-end collisions, often caused by tailgating/following too closely
- Side-impact collisions caused by unsafe passing or failing to yield the
Head-on collisions, often as a result of drifting into the oncoming lane due to
Rollover crashes, often due to high speeds on sharp turns or
defective auto design
- T-bone crashes from unlawful entry into an intersection
Often, police will issue a citation to an at-fault driver for a moving
violation such as speeding, running a red light or a stop sign, or failing
to signal. They might even arrest a driver for DUI. However, a citation
is not definitive proof of fault, North Carolina’s strict contributory
negligence law can bar your recovery if you bear as little as one percent
of the responsibility for the crash.
What If I Share Fault for the Car Accident?
North Carolina has a very strict rule for liability in
personal injury cases. If the plaintiff (person injured) is found to be even 1% at fault for
their injury, they will be barred from recovering any form of compensation.
This rule can make a negligent driver and their insurance company highly
motivated to prove that the injury victim holds partial blame. If the
person who caused your accident is claiming you share fault, it absolutely
essential that you hire a heavy-weight attorney to defend your case.
