    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. Fayetteville, North Carolina, like any other city, has its share of challenging and potentially dangerous roads. Factors contributing to road danger can include traffic congestion, road design, weather conditions, and driver behavior. While the danger level of a road can change over time, some roads have historically been known for safety concerns. For years, the North Carolina Department of Transportation judged Skibo Road at the All-American Freeway to be the most dangerous intersection in Fayetteville.

    A few roads in Fayetteville that have been considered more challenging or potentially dangerous include:

    1. Bragg Boulevard (Highway 24): Bragg Boulevard is a major north-south route in Fayetteville, and it is known for heavy traffic, especially near Fort Bragg. The combination of high traffic volume and frequent stop-and-go conditions can lead to accidents and congestion.
    2. Ramsey Street (Highway 401): Ramsey Street is another major thoroughfare in Fayetteville, running north from the city. It experiences heavy traffic, and there have been reported accidents along this route.
    3. Murchison Road: Murchison Road has seen its share of traffic accidents and can be a challenging road to navigate due to congestion, intersections, and varying road conditions.
    4. Martin Luther King Jr. Freeway: While freeways generally have fewer intersections, they can still be dangerous due to high speeds and the potential for severe accidents. The Martin Luther King Jr. Freeway, also known as I-295, can be busy, particularly during peak commuting times.
    5. Gillespie Street: This road is known for heavy traffic and can be challenging to navigate, especially during rush hours.
    6. Reilly Road: Running along the western edge of Fort Bragg, Reilly Road can experience traffic congestion and frequent roadwork, leading to potentially dangerous conditions.

    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.

    Fayetteville Car Accident FAQs

    • How much does it cost to hire a car accident lawyer in Fayetteville, NC? The cost of hiring a car accident lawyer in Fayetteville, NC, can vary depending on several factors, including the complexity of your case, the attorney's experience, and their fee structure. Many car accident lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, meaning they only get paid if you win your case. Typically, they'll take a percentage (often around 33-40%) of the final settlement or court award. This fee structure allows individuals to seek legal representation without paying upfront fees.
    • Will I have to go to court for a car accident in Fayetteville, NC? Whether or not your car accident case in Fayetteville, NC, goes to court depends on various factors, such as the severity of the accident, the extent of the injuries, the liability of the parties involved, and the willingness of the insurance companies to settle. Many car accident cases are resolved through negotiation and settlement without going to court. However, if a fair settlement cannot be reached, it may be necessary to file a lawsuit and go to court to seek compensation.
    • How long will my car accident case in Fayetteville, NC take to resolve? The duration of your car accident case's resolution in Fayetteville, NC, can also vary widely. Simple cases with clear liability and minimal damages may be resolved relatively quickly, while more complex cases involving serious injuries and disputed liability can take several months or even years to reach a resolution.
