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 fatal.

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 right-of-way
  • Head-on collisions, often as a result of drifting into the oncoming lane due to drunk, fatigued, or distracted driving
  • 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.
