A serious accident can upend your life. As you undergo medical and surgical treatment, the bills may pile up and your income may stop. Then you may face a long convalescence and an uncertain future. However, if you were the victim of someone’s negligence, you may be entitled to recover full compensation for your losses. Lanier Law Group, P.A. has been helping victims of auto accidents in Asheville and throughout North Carolina for more than 25 years.

  • property damage and rental car issues
  • medical treatment — finding the right doctor
  • health insurance issues — getting your medical bills paid even if you do not have health insurance.

We take aggressive and decisive steps to secure your rights and deliver results.

Ample experience with a variety of accident scenarios

As the county seat of Buncombe County, Asheville is the largest city in western North Carolina, with a population of more than 85,000 people. With major arteries, such as I-26, US 25, US 70, and US 74 bringing in traffic from four directions, and  I-240 and I-40 looping the city, Asheville has some of the most congested traffic in the state. This leads to aggressive and distracted driving that inevitably causes a variety of accidents, including:

  • Rear-end collisions
  • Side-swipes
  • Head-on collisions
  • Rollovers
  • T-bone crashes

According to the University of North Carolina Highway Safety Research Center, there were 4,340 reported motor vehicle crashes in Asheville in 2015, inflicting 1,109 injuries and resulting in 16 fatalities. In wider Buncombe County, there were a total of 7,157 accidents reported, causing 1,966 injuries and 35 deaths.

Proving liability for Asheville car accidents

Our determined accident attorneys thoroughly investigate your accident to uncover the causes that can settle the liability issue in your favor, such as:

  • Distracted driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Failure to yield right of way
  • Fatigued driving
  • Improper signaling
  • Running red light or stop sign
  • Speeding
  • Unsafe maneuvering
  • Tailgating

Sometimes municipal, state or federal authorities can be held liable for hazardous road conditions due to poor maintenance, unsafe construction, or faulty design.

How hiring a heavyweight may help your accident claim

Because North Carolina’s contributory negligence law bars your recovery if you share any responsibility for the accident, you must be able to prove that another driver or drivers were fully at fault. Defense attorneys are usually eager to prove injured plaintiffs did something — anything! — that contributed to the accident so they can get their client and the insurance company off the hook. Even when liability is clear, insurance companies use lowball offers and delay tactics to wear you down and may try to get you to settle for less than your case is worth. However, with our heavyweight legal team on your side, you can level the playing field with any large insurance company.
