Motor Vehicle Accidents

Motor vehicle crashes are one of the most common examples of personal injury claims. These injuries can involve something as commonplace as broken bones that prevents you from working for a time. However, catastrophic back or head injuries can be life-changing events. This is to say nothing of victims' families filing a wrongful death suit. North Carolina is a fault-based (or tort liability) state, which means that victims and their families can sue for damages involving lost wages, medical expenses as well as physical and emotional pain and suffering.

The law firm of Anderson, Johnson, Lawrence & Butler, L.L.P., has decades of experience handling motor vehicle accident claims for both insurance companies and plaintiffs. As seasoned litigators, we believe that many years of representing both sides of these cases gives us unique insight into effectively and aggressively building a motor vehicle accident case. We understand that each case is different; however, we can work hands-on with victims and their families to achieve or surpass your goals.

Important Issues In Motor Vehicle Accidents

There are specific details that often need to be addressed in these types of personal injury claims, including:

  • Car accidents: Distracted driving statistics continue to rise and we are seeing the results on the road.
  • Truck accidents: Attorneys for trucking lines aggressively defend their clients because the injuries are often cataclysmic because of the size differential between cars and commercial trucks.
  • Catastrophic injuries: These life-changing injuries will include head and back injuries as well as amputations. The victims are often permanently disabled or take years to recover.
  • Wrongful death: Families can file a claim when the victim was killed through the negligence of another driver.
  • Pedestrian injuries: Oftentimes pedestrians can be severely injured due to the negligence of a driver.

What Happens If You Are Injured In Motor Vehicle Accident

It is always recommended to seek medical attention immediately after the accident, both to get the medical help you need as well as document the injury. It is also important to contact a lawyer to discuss your accident while all the details are fresh. When we take your case, we conduct our own investigation by speaking with witnesses, examining the scene of the accident and using crash reconstruction experts if necessary. All of this allows us to build the strongest case possible.
