But in 2018, Greenville saw 3,684 automobile crashesoccur within the city limits. Just in those crashes, more than 2100 people suffered injuries; 8 people died. In all of Pitt County there were 6,295 crashes; 21 people died.
When you or your family member are injured in a Greenville car accident, life changes. Not just for the victim, but for everyone who loves them. Families can undergo life-long changes because another driver wasn’t paying attention.
We at the Clauson Law Firm are devoted to helping you and your family get through this awful experience with as little disruption and with as much compensation as possible.
There’s no way to predict what injury you’ll suffer in a Greenville car accident. The possibilities are endless because the forces your body absorbs from the physics of a particular accident determines whether your injury will be relatively minor or catastrophic.
Even car accidents that appear at first glance to be minor often result in injuries involving torn or badly sprained neck and back muscles, or spinal disk injuries leaving victims with years-long limitations.
The human body is especially vulnerable to the laws of physics in car accidents. When a car is traveling 60 mph, so are the driver and passengers. Despite the modern design of passenger car safety features, car accidents thrust the drivers and passengers hard into their seat belts, often breaking collar bones and ribs.
When a car is suddenly hit by another vehicle, the occupant’s head snaps toward the colliding vehicle. A person restrained by a seat belt feels the full weight of their head (about 11 pounds) yank their neck violently, first in one direction and then back again. These whiplash injuries frequently leave the victims with severe ligament, muscle, and disk injuries. Many victims also suffer memory issues or headaches from concussion-related damage.
Of course, car accidents cause every kind of bone injury, from facial fractures, skull fractures, and broken vertebrae, to crushed arms and legs. Car accident-related serious bone damage frequently requires surgeons to implant steel rods, plates, and pins into the victim’s body.
Internal injuries to vital organs, hemorrhaging, punctured lungs, intestinal ruptures, and a long list of other possible life-threatening injuries torment car accident victims, often for the rest of their life.
You are more than a client at Clauson Law, you are our mission. Our team studies every aspect of your car accident:
Our goal is to help you recover the fullest possible compensation to provide you and your family with the knowledge that your suffering was recognized and your losses were made whole.
Clauson Law is experienced in winning large settlements for our clients and fighting to the end when an insurance company or an opponent fails to respond reasonably to our rightful demands on your behalf. Insurers who represent the negligent driver often try to escape liability by claiming you contributed to the accident. The Clauson Law Firm is ready to defend you against false or unfounded accusations that your own negligence played a contributing role in the car accident.
In North Carolina, if a car accident victim’s own negligence contributed to the car crash, then our state law prevents the victim from recovering money in an action against the more negligent driver. Our lawyers and support staff are well prepared to discredit unjust claims of negligence made against our clients.
