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.
The first step in your recovery is scheduling a free consultation with
an attorney at our firm. Call

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 11 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.
Fortunately, our experienced personal injury attorneys are well-versed
in popular defense tactics. We know how the other side operates, and we
know how to build strong cases based on evidence that supports your claim.
Our attorneys have a proven track record of success in navigating complex
car accident claims involving:
- Head-on collisions
- Rear-end collisions
- T-bone crashes
We take decisive steps to uncover the evidence necessary to prove fault.
We consult with accident reconstruction experts who apply scientific methods
to determine whether another driver was speeding or if a
defective auto part or
poor road maintenance caused the crash. We also investigate your crash independently to determine
if a motorist was
driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, was
distracted by a cellphone, or was
driving while unreasonably fatigued. Our focused effort to establish liability is indispensable for your recovery.
Proving the Extent of Your Injuries to Pursue Full Compensation
Many vehicle accidents only result in property damage, and insurance companies
are usually reasonable in settling those claims under the terms of their
policies. However, high-speed crashes on the Martin Luther King Jr. Highway,
Memorial Drive, or other major arteries in the Greenville area can inflict
catastrophic injuries and even
wrongful death. When victims are seriously hurt—sustaining
traumatic brain injuries,
spinal cord damage, crushed bones, or disfiguring
burns—the situation cries out for justice. How much compensation is fair
when it comes to pain, suffering, and the loss of quality of life?
Drawing on decades of experience with cases involving catastrophic injuries,
our Greenville car accident lawyers know what is fair and appropriate.
We call on experts in the medical field to testify about your prognosis
for recovery, and we engage experts in psychology, rehabilitation, and
finance to offer their professional opinions about the impact your injuries
have had and will likely have on your life. Often, it is helpful for family
and friends to testify about your life before and after the accident.
Our comprehensive strategy to prove the extent of our clients’ injuries
has helped us achieve consistently positive results on their behalf.
