Experienced Greensboro lawyers manage all types of car accident cases
The University of North Carolina Highway Safety Research Center reports that Guilford County saw 13,978 motor vehicle accidents in 2015, resulting in 5,244 injuries and 56 deaths. Greensboro, by far the largest city in the county, had 8,591 crashes, which injured 3,509 people, 21 fatally. Most car accidents involve property damage only, resulting from mild contact in parking lots or while parallel parking on surface streets. But crashes in intersections, particularly when a driver has run a red light or mistimed a left turn across traffic, can produce side-impact collisions that inflict serious injuries. Rear-end collisions are common at traffic lights and on freeways, when conditions suddenly force a driver to brake in front of a vehicle that has been following too closely. But the deadliest type of crash is a head-on collision, because the speed of the two vehicles combines to produce incredible force. Head-on collisions often occur when a drunk or drowsy driver crosses into oncoming traffic on an undivided highway or a drunk driver enters a freeway via an off-ramp and proceeds against high-speed traffic.
No matter what type of crash you experience, proving who was at fault is the most important element of your case. Our law firm carefully investigates your crash to uncover evidence of driver negligence, such as distracted driving, speeding, drunk driving, or a moving violation. In some cases, the fault might lie with a defective auto part or hazardous road conditions due to poor design and maintenance.
Because North Carolina has a very strict contributory negligence law, which bars your claim if you were in any way responsible for the crash, we also assemble evidence to defend you from allegations that your own carelessness contributed to the accident.
Determined representation focused on full recovery for your injuries
Once you’ve established liability for the accident, the next important step is proving the full extent of your injuries. Our Greensboro personal injury lawyers have represented many clients with permanent injuries, who have suffered a great loss to the quality of their lives. Traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injuries, severe burns, and disfiguring scars are just a few conditions that can radically alter a person’s life. We fight hard to ensure you receive appropriate compensation for the pain and suffering your injuries have caused and will continue to cause in the future. We consult with experts in medicine, surgery, rehabilitation, and finance to build a compelling case for a sufficient damage award.
