The third-largest city in the Tar Heel State, Greensboro has numerous amenities for sports fans, families, and art enthusiasts. However, after almost three decades of 20 percent growth in the Piedmont Triad metropolitan area, Greensboro residents are dealing with a great deal more traffic congestion as they travel to their favorite venues—from Wet 'n Wild Emerald Pointe to the Greensboro Coliseum Complex to the International Civil Rights Museum. Predictably, traffic accidents have increased in recent years on major highways, such as I-85, I-40, and I-73, as well as on many surface streets.

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 too closely.
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:
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.
