Greenville Car Accidents Lawyers
Heavyweight representation for injured parties in Pitt County
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.

Skilled lawyers manage a wide variety of Greenville accident cases
The University of North Carolina Highway Safety Research Center reports there were 5,426 motor vehicle accidents in Pike 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 often try to exploit the contributory negligence law to get their negligent clients off the hook. Fortunately, our experienced accident attorneys are well-versed in defense tactics. We have extensive experience in cases arising from various car crash scenarios, such as:
- 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 determining 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
Most vehicle accidents only produce 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 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. But how much compensation is fair when it comes to pain and suffering and the loss of quality of life?
Because our lawyers draw on more than 20 years of experience with cases of severe personal injuries, we 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 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.
