Charlotte Car Accident Lawyers

Heavyweight representation for severely injured parties

serious car accident in Charlotte
Already the second-largest city in the southeastern United States, Charlotte is also among the fastest-growing metropolitan areas in the country. A business-friendly environment has encouraged expansion in the banking, healthcare, manufacturing, retail and energy sectors. Unfortunately, Charlotte has not enjoyed growth without growing pains; traffic congestion has increased dramatically, resulting in a steep spike in motor vehicle accidents. A dramatic illustration of this trend is the sad statistic that pedestrian traffic deaths in Charlotte more than doubled from nine in 2015 to 20 in 2016. If you are injured in a traffic accident in the Charlotte area, you face an uphill struggle to recover your health and to recover compensation from the at-fault driver. But, with Lanier Law Group, P.A. you can have a heavyweight in your corner fighting for the compensation you deserve.

We can help you with:

  • 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 are known for providing robust representation that gets results.

Common motor vehicle accidents in Charlotte

Job growth and low fuel prices in Charlotte and Mecklenburg County have spurred an increase in traffic accidents in recent years. More cars on the road, more vehicle miles traveled and greater congestion mean that Charlotte drivers are more likely to be tired, drunk or irritated behind the wheel. These are factors that contributed to the 33,918 accidents in Mecklenburg County in 2015 that produced 11,876 injuries and 75 fatalities. The lion’s share of those accidents, 28,723, occurred within Charlotte’s city limits, resulting in 10,335 injuries and 66 fatalities.

At Lanier Law Group, our personal injury attorneys regularly manage cases arising from various types of traffic accidents, including:

  • Rear-end collisions, from following too closely
  • Side-impact collisions, from unsafe passing or failing to yield the right of way
  • Head-on collisions, from drifting into the oncoming lane due to drunk, fatigued or distracted driving
  • Rollovers due to high speeds on sharp turns
  • T-bone crashes from unlawful entry into an intersection

Often, police will issue a citation to an at-fault driver for a moving violation such as speeding, running a red light or a stop sign, or failing to signal. They might even arrest a driver for DUI. However, a citation is not definitive proof of fault, and North Carolina’s strict contributory negligence law can bar your recovery if you bear as much as one percent of the responsibility for the crash.

Fighting for your full recovery after a serious injury

The Charlotte area has many major arteries where devastating high-speed crashes can occur, especially I-85, I-77, I-277 and the I-485 beltway. However, traffic congestion has also made surface streets more dangerous, including where E. 7th Street, E. 8th Street or E. 12th Street cross N. College Street, as well as the intersections of S. Church Street and W. Hill Street, and E. 4th Street and Kings Drive.

A violent car crash can produce debilitating injuries, such as:

  • Concussion and traumatic brain injury
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Displaced fractures and crushed bones
  • Severe burns
  • Spinal cord injury, including partial or complete paralysis
  • Wrongful death

However, the mere fact that you’ve suffered a terrible injury does not guarantee full or even token compensation. Auto insurance companies may seem to be determined to pay as little as possible for injury claims, and they may use tactics to attempt to settle for less than their case may be worth.

It is not advisable to settle with an insurance company on your own. When you retain an experienced accident lawyer at Lanier Law Group, we bring more than 25 years of experience to the fight. We can evaluate your case for free, thoroughly investigate the causes and assemble the evidence necessary to deliver optimum results. We have a network of experts in accident reconstruction, medicine, rehabilitation and finance, who help build a compelling case so you can obtain the damage award you may deserve.
