Determining the Cause of Rear-End Car Accidents in North Carolina
In some cases, the rear driver's brakes fail, potentially turning car accident cases into products liability claims. However, more frequently, rear-end collisions occur when rear-end drivers fail to pay attention to the road. With over 40 years of combined experience, our car accident attorneys have proven fault against motorists in distracted driving claims, involving:
- Texting and driving
- Talking on cell phones while driving
- Putting make-up on or eating while driving
- Losing focus of the road while tinkering with the radio or talking with passengers
Our law firm also has extensive experience proving fault in rear-end collisions when motorists follow vehicles too closely or drive at unsafe speeds. We have the skills and legal resources to hold at-fault drivers responsible for their actions, even when liability is initially unknown.

Motor vehicle accidents often occur so quickly leaving accident victims little time to brace for the accident. If you remember little from the rear-end collision, your chances of securing a financial recovery are not over. Our legal team has access to industry-leading experts, including accident scene reconstructionists available to help us identify the causes of rear-end collisions in North Carolina.
We will pursue a full financial recovery against all at-fault parties to help you recover compensation for any medical expenses, lost wages, or pain and suffering.

Addressing Contributory Negligence Concerns in North Carolina
North Carolina is one of only four states with contributory negligence. Contributory negligence means that any plaintiff who is just 1 percent at fault cannot recover compensation for injuries stemming from a personal injury accident.

Our legal team will take every measure possible to protect your right to help you recover the compensation you are entitled.
