Fayetteville Car Accident Attorneys
Seeking Maximum Compensation for Your Damages
Although it’s a sizeable city of more than 200,000 people, Fayetteville, NC is best known as the home of Fort Bragg. The heavy imprint of the U.S. Department of Defense can be seen in various spots throughout the city—from the statue of Iron Mike outside the Airborne and Special Operations Museum to the colonial revival architecture of the Veterans Administration Hospital Historic District.
Unfortunately, with a large population comes greater traffic congestion and a higher risk of auto accidents. If you’ve been injured in a car accident in the Fayetteville area, your best defense is a strong offense. Since 1997, the dedicated car accident attorneys of Lanier Law Group have fought for injured parties throughout North Carolina. We can help you with every aspect of your claim, from obtaining adequate medical care to securing a rental car to pursuing financial recovery by filing a personal injury claim.
Types of Auto Accidents We Handle
According to the University of North Carolina Highway Safety Research Center, there were 8,791 motor vehicle accidents in Cumberland County in 2015. These accidents caused 2,781 injuries and 39 deaths. In Fayetteville itself, 5,993 crashes occurred, injuring 1,883 people and killing 17. For years, the North Carolina Department of Transportation judged Skibo Road at the All-American Freeway to be the most dangerous intersection in Fayetteville. But accidents also regularly occur on the Martin Luther King Jr. Freeway, on US 401, and just outside the city limits on I-295 and I-95.
If a negligent or reckless driver injures you, our Fayetteville car accident lawyers are ready to help you prove your case and fight to collect damages.
We have a strong track record of achieving favorable results in cases involving:
- Rear-end collisions
- Head-on collisions
- T-bone crashes
Proving Liability in Car Accident Cases in North Carolina
When seeking compensation after an auto accident, the first task is to establish liability for the crash. The negligent driver may have been distracted by a cellphone. Or, they may have committed a moving violation, such as speeding, running a red light or a stop sign, failing to yield the right-of-way, or even driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. However, if the question of who caused the accident comes down to your word against the other driver’s, you may have an especially difficult case. This is because North Carolina’s strict contributory negligence statute bars you from recovering any damages if you bear even the slightest responsibility for the accident.
At Lanier Law Group, when we take a case, we consult reliable experts in accident reconstruction who use scientific methods to determine the cause of an accident. Credible expert testimony may often override a defendant’s claim that our client was in any way to blame.
Decades of Experience with Catastrophic Injury Cases
Our personal injury lawyers have recovered compensation for clients suffering serious and catastrophic injuries, such as:
- Crushed bones and displaced fractures
- Neck and back injuries
- Severe disfigurement from burns and scarring
- Spinal cord injuries, including partial or complete paralysis

- Internal organ damage/soft tissue damage
We consult experts in medicine, surgery, rehabilitation, and finance to create a clear picture of the cause of your accident and the extent of your injuries. We then use this information to build a solid case aimed at winning the full compensation you deserve.
