Car Accident Lawyers in Greenville
Injured in a Crash? Lanier Law Group Can Help.
Like many of the leading cities in North Carolina, Greenville has experienced remarkable growth in the last few decades. Already the seat of Pitt County, Greenville has also become the health, entertainment, and educational center of the Tidewater region. Greenville’s business-friendly reputation has made the town popular with young adults starting out in their careers, and the city’s embrace of non-traditional sports has transformed the unassuming hamlet into BMX Pro Town USA.
In a town like Greenville, it’s hard not to be optimistic, and it’s incongruous—even shocking—to realize that serious traffic accidents happen here with alarming frequency. If you are injured in a car accident in Greenville or the nearby areas, you can rely on Lanier Law Group to provide the dedicated legal assistance you need. By putting a heavyweight in your corner, you can assert your rights and possibly obtain the full compensation you deserve.
Understanding North Carolina’s Contributory Negligence Law
The University of North Carolina Highway Safety Research Center reports there were 5,426 motor vehicle accidents in Pitt County in 2015, which injured 1,636 people, 30 fatally. Most of those accidents—3,504—occurred in Greenville, where 1,038 people were hurt and 10 were killed.
Victims of auto accidents in North Carolina must prove that another party was at fault and that they were not at all to blame. That last part is important, since North Carolina’s strict contributory negligence law bars any recovery of damages for a party who shares as little as one percent of the blame for an accident. Proving someone else was liable—and that you absolutely were not—is a tall order. Defense attorneys may try to use the contributory negligence law to get their negligent clients off the hook.

There are times in your life you are so hurt and feel life has a grudge against you. Nothing in your life is going right. I lost the most important person in my life to death, of which I knew mistakes were made because I witnessed it with my own eyes. When you contact a law group you most of the time get all business and a matter of fact conversation. I want all to know that from the first phone call they listened to my lengthy story, sobbing most of the time with so much compassion. They never made any promises but offered assurances that no stone would be unturned. They fulfilled every word they said. They restored faith that I had lost. Until you are in a position like mine you can never know how invaluable Lanier Law Group is. They were wonderful while maintaining their professionalism. They treated me like a family member. They really do care about their clients. But most of all they are the best at what they do. I worked in the court system for years so I knew how attorneys and law firms basically operated. Understanding the law and it's interpretation is the ultimate key to winning any case. Also know that if an attorney/attorneys study and review your case and know that you don't have a chance in a court of law and are big enough to tell you that instead of giving you false hope, you then my friend have a group with valuable shared values. I have so much respect for everyone in this Law Group. I recommend Lanier Law Group, P.A. to anyone who needs representation, they are in your corner. 20 out of 10 stars.- Diane W.
I started working with Lanier Law Group in 2020 on my Social Security Disability case. They from start to finish were awesome. My case manager Janet Hanks and attorney, Ashley Sappenfield were always available to answer all my questions. I did not have to do much but sit back and let them handle whatever was needed. My case took too long (2 years) and if I did not have Janet and Ashley My case would still not be approved. I would recommend Lanier to anyone to get the job done and approved. Do not go to another firm with your case, who promise the world and do not see it to completion and do not think another firms would have worked as hard as they did on my case. Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members to handle any cases of this type and other legal services they provide. They went above and beyond!- Phillip J.
Mrs. Gonzalez did an awesome job of explaining everything in detail and keeping me informed on the status of my case. Despite poor customer service with the insurance company, Mrs. Gonzalez was able to fix what they could not. Mrs. Gonzalez was very helpful with helping me understand things that I was not aware of when dealing with insurance claims. I am so thankful for her expertise and professionalism.- Mario H.
