Charlotte Motor Vehicle Accident Attorney

Getting into a car crash can be scary and leave you wondering what your options are, especially if another person’s negligence has caused your injuries. At Brown Moore & Associates, PLLC, you can count on having an experienced Charlotte motor vehicle accident lawyer by your side. We will work to secure compensation for all of your crash-related expenses.

The Reality In North Carolina

If we look at the latest full year of data from the NC Department of Transportation, we see that there were more than 275,000 motor vehicle crashes reported. Out of those, there were:

  • 1,396 fatalities
  • 127,964 injuries

While many crash injuries are minor, we know that it is not uncommon for us to see the following:

  • Spinal cord injuries (with possible paralysis)
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Internal organ damage/internal bleeding
  • Broken or dislocated bones
  • Severe lacerations or amputations

Each of these injuries requires immediate and often extensive medical care. Many crash victims need multiple surgeries and extended rehabilitation in order to make a full recovery. The medical costs can become tremendous.

What people do not often consider are the other hidden costs of vehicle crash. In an effort to push for a quick settlement, insurance companies rarely offer compensation for the following:

  • Lost income and benefits of a crash victim or a family caregiver
  • Any necessary home or vehicle accommodations
  • In-home care or therapy if a person is disabled
  • Incalculable emotional and psychological damages

What Causes These Crashes

Many fatal and injury-causing crashes are the result of negligent drivers. Some of the top contributing factors in NC are:

  • Excessive driving speed/failure to reduce speed
  • Disregard of traffic signals/road markings
  • Failure to yield the right-of-way
  • Inattention or distracted drivers
  • Crossing center line/going the wrong way
  • Alcohol or drug use

We want to make note of the dangers of impaired driving. For the latest reporting year, alcohol-impaired drivers were responsible for more than 26% of all traffic fatalities. Still, speeding causes the most injuries (36.4%) and fatalities (31.9%).

In the immediate aftermath of a vehicle accident, it is vital that you seek medical treatment, even if you think your injuries are only minor. The full extent of many injuries often does not manifest until hours or days later. By seeing a doctor, you are establishing a connection between your injuries and the crash.
