Durham Car Accident Lawyers

Heavyweight attorneys help you recover damages

car accident with serious injuries

These are exciting times in Durham, North Carolina, as the growth of the Research Triangle has spurred a downtown revitalization, inviting developers from all over the world to convert tracts of the old tobacco district into new housing and a variety of cultural amenities. In time, the ambitious, new Innovation District will transform the skyline of the Bull City. But growth can come at a price, and Durham, whose population suddenly exceeds 250,000, is trying to manage a steep increase in traffic accidents on surface streets and major arteries, such as I-85, I-40, NC 147, and NC 751. If you are injured in an auto accident in the Durham area, Lanier Law Group, P.A. is ready to help.

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.

Obtaining full compensation is never easy, but with a heavyweight in your corner, you are ready for the fight.

Experience with all types of auto accidents in Durham

Because North Carolina’s contributory negligence law is so strict, you must be able to prove you had no role in causing the accident, and that another driver or drivers are entirely responsible. That’s why it’s important to select an attorney with the knowledge and experience to build a compelling case. Lanier Law Group has served victims of North Carolina auto accidents for more than 20 years. We have vast experience with different accident scenarios, including:

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

We consult with engineers who specialize in accident reconstruction and can help determine the cause of a crash, which might include:

  • Defective auto part
  • Hazardous road conditions
  • Driver distraction
  • Excessive speed
  • Unsafe maneuvers
  • Weather

We also conduct independent investigations, interviewing the police and witnesses to uncover evidence of driver negligence, such as:

  • Cellphone use
  • Drunk driving
  • Fatigued driving
  • Moving violation

In the legal profession, there is no substitute for experience. Our attorneys are ready when you need us, to prove liability as the first step towards your complete recovery.

Getting the maximum award for your serious injuries

According to the University of North Carolina Highway Safety Research Center, there were 9,335 motor vehicle accidents in Durham County in 2015, which caused 2,538 injuries and 25 deaths. The overwhelming majority of those crashes, 8,228, occurred within the Durham city limits, resulting in 2,189 injuries and 18 fatalities. But when you’ve been hurt in such an accident, you don’t want to be thought of as a statistic.
