A combination of village charm and cosmopolitan lifestyle has made Wilmington a preferred destination in recent years for businesses and visitors. The port town, now designated as a U.S. Coast Guard City, resounds with history from its colonial beginnings through World War II and up to the present day. Unfortunately, having doubled in size since 1990, Wilmington now has to deal with big-city problems such as traffic congestion and a sharp spike in motor vehicle accidents. If you are hurt in a car crash in the Wilmington area, trust Lanier Law Group, P.A. to fight for you.

Our heavyweight accident attorneys have the skill and experience to pursue the maximum damage award possible for your injuries.
New Hanover County experienced 5,622 motor vehicle accidents in 2015, according to the University of North Carolina Highway Safety Research Center. These crashes injured 1,779 people, 21 fatally. The majority of the accidents, 3,616, happened in Wilmington, where 1,270 people were injured and 13 died. How many of those injured parties were compensated? That’s impossible to say, but under North Carolina’s strict contributory negligence law, getting the compensation you deserve may not be easy. As a victim, you must prove two elements by a preponderance of the evidence:
Defense attorneys sometimes accuse victims of contributory negligence, hoping the court will bar recovering from their clients. Your attorney must be able to prove the defendant was negligent in causing the accident and defend you from allegations of negligence. This takes knowledge, skill and experience.
Our auto accident lawyers have extensive experience managing cases involving:
We conduct independent investigations to gather evidence of the defendant’s negligent or reckless driving. The most frequent causes of accidents we see are:
We also consult with accident reconstruction experts who gather data to determine whether factors such as speeding, running a red light, defective auto parts or hazardous road conditions contributed to the crash.
The majority of auto accidents only damage property. But high-speed collisions on major arteries such as US 17, US 74, US 76, and US 421 can cause severe, permanently disabling injuries. Every accident victim deserves fair compensation, but victims who are looking at a lifetime of hardship depend even more on a fair settlement or verdict. Victims who have suffered traumatic brain injury, crushed bones, spinal trauma and paralysis, severe burns, or loss of limb require full compensation for all their losses, including pain and suffering, loss of quality of life, future support, and future medical expenses.
Our personal injury lawyers consult with qualified experts in healthcare, psychology, rehabilitation, and finance to create a clear and complete picture of the impact your injuries have had and will continue to have on your life. This complete picture is part of the compelling case we build to help you recover the full compensation you deserve.
