The collision happens suddenly and may be over in a matter of seconds, but the physical, emotional and financial harm caused by an automobile accident may last a lifetime. Devastating injuries to occupants of the vehicles or to pedestrians frequently require extensive medical treatment and care and rehabilitation. Depending upon the nature and extent of the injuries, financial hardships mount as lengthy recovery periods may make it impossible for accident victims to return to work. If you suffer an injury caused by the negligence of another party, the Clauson Law Firm, PLLC, is the Greensboro auto accident law firm that victims and their families have come to trust to aggressively fight for the compensation they need and deserve.
Your primary focus after an auto accident should be on obtaining the medical care needed to allow you to heal. A Greensboro auto accident lawyer takes the burden of dealing telephone calls from insurance company claims adjusters trying to entice you to settle your claim for damages for less than it is worth.
We combine years of experience handling auto accident claims and an in-depth knowledge of North Carolina personal injury laws to give you a formidable advocate aggressively fighting to force the party whose negligence caused your injuries to pay the maximum compensation you deserve. We handle all types of auto accident claims, including those caused by the following:
Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol: Alcohol and drugs can significantly impair a driver's judgment, impede motor skills, and otherwise contribute to causing a collision with another vehicle, a pedestrian or a bicycle rider. Even the use of medications prescribed by a physician may contribute to causing an accident by impairing a person's ability to safely operate a motor vehicle.
Texting while driving: Anything that causes a driver to avert attention from the task of operating a vehicle or being aware of road conditions can cause a serious crash. Whether sending a text message or reading one, texting while driving is a distraction that causes accidents.
Failing to obey traffic laws: Speeding, failing to yield the right of way, and failing to obey stop signs and red traffic signals are some of the common traffic violations drivers commit that can lead to a collision between vehicles or between a vehicle and pedestrians or bicycle riders.
Driving while fatigued: Drivers who fail to get enough sleep or continue driving after becoming tired pose a danger to themselves and others using the roads. Fatigue may cause a driver to dose off while driving or impair their ability to react to traffic jams or stopped vehicles in time to avoid a collision.
Regardless of how your auto accident occurred, a Greensboro auto accident attorney from our office investigates the circumstances of the collision to identify its cause and gather evidence to prove negligence on the part of the party responsible for causing it. Our extensive experience allows us to identify situations in which multiple parties may be at fault in causing a crash. For example, it may appear as though a driver caused a collision by failing to stay in lane, but an investigation and review of the evidence may disclose that another motorist may also be at fault. Each driver may be held liable for their negligence in causing the collision and the injuries you suffered.
