Civil Rights Museum. Predictably, traffic accidents have increased in

When Are Car Accidents the Result of Negligence?
The University of North Carolina Highway Safety Research Center reports
that Guilford County saw 13,978 motor vehicle accidents in 2015, resulting
in 5,244 injuries and 56 deaths. Greensboro, by far the largest city in
the county, had 8,591 crashes, which injured 3,509 people, 21 fatally.
Most minor car accidents only result in property damage, often resulting
from mild collisions in parking lots or while parallel parking on surface
streets. However, crashes in intersections—particularly when a driver
has run a red light or mistimed a left turn across traffic—can produce
side-impact collisions that inflict serious injuries. Rear-end collisions
are common at traffic lights and on freeways, when conditions suddenly
force a driver to brake in front of a vehicle that has been following
But the deadliest type of crash is a head-on collision, because the speed
of the two vehicles combines to produce incredible force. Head-on collisions
often occur when a drunk or drowsy driver crosses into oncoming traffic
on an undivided highway or a drunk driver enters a freeway via an off-ramp
and proceeds against high-speed traffic.
No matter what type of crash you experience, proving who was at fault is
the most important element of your case.
At Lanier Law Group, we can carefully investigate your crash to uncover
evidence of driver negligence, such as:
In some cases, the fault might lie with a
defective auto part or
hazardous road conditions due to poor design and maintenance.
Since North Carolina has a very strict contributory negligence law, which
bars your claim if you were in any way responsible for the crash, we can
also assemble evidence to defend you from allegations that your own carelessness
contributed to the accident.
Determined Representation Focused on Your Full Recovery
Once you’ve established liability for the accident, the next important
step is proving the full extent of your injuries. Our Greensboro car accident
lawyers have represented many clients with permanent injuries and who
have suffered a great loss to the quality of their lives.
Traumatic brain injury,
spinal cord injuries,
severe burns, and disfiguring scars are just a few conditions that can radically alter
a person’s life.
We fight hard to ensure you receive appropriate compensation for the pain
and suffering your injuries have caused and will continue to cause in
the future. We often consult with experts in medicine, surgery, rehabilitation,
and finance to build a compelling case for a sufficient damage award.
