Fight Negligence with Skilled Greensboro Auto Accident Lawyers
Few things are more frightening than a motor vehicle accident.
One second everything is fine and normal. The next your life is a mass of screeching, crunching metal, glass, and plastic. Auto accidents tend to be fast, violent, and surprising to the people involved, and the types of injuries involved can run the gamut.
Sometimes you escape relatively unscathed, but not always. From minor scrapes and cuts to broken bones and traumatic brain injury to death, literally anything can happen.
We do what we can to protect ourselves from the dangers that come with motor vehicles. Drive safely. Wear seatbelts. Have tires, brakes, and airbags checked. But no matter what you do, you cannot control the actions of other drivers on the road.
If you have suffered injuries due to an accident caused by the negligence of another in North Carolina, you owe it to yourself and your loved ones to fight back and make sure you receive fair and just compensation for everything that you have suffered.
Many people wrongly believe that “the system” will take care of them if something like this happens. That insurers will handle their claim in a fair, speedy manner. Or that other responsible parties will do the right thing and cover their costs.
Unfortunately, that simply is not the world that we live in. Insurance companies are for-profit businesses, and as much as their marketing says that they will be there when you need them, often this is not true.
Their goal in a situation like this is to pay out as little as possible – and even avoid it altogether if they can. Other negligent parties will likely act in a similar fashion.
That is where the experienced and knowledgeable personal injury attorneys at Schlosser & Pritchett come in. For more than 25 years, our lawyers have been helping North Carolinians just like you to fight for their rights when they have been injured and get the compensation they need to heal and return to their regular lives.
We not only understand how the system works in Greensboro and throughout the state, but the specific tactics that insurance companies use to try to avoid paying claims and keep the amount as low as possible.
This is because many of our lawyers used to work for these very companies. Now they use their knowledge of insurers’ inner workings to help the little guy.
Our North Carolina Auto Accident Attorneys Can Help with Any Kind of Motor Vehicle Accident
When most people hear “auto accident,” they immediately imagine passenger cars, trucks, and SUVs. The kinds of vehicles that dominate our roadways.
But any type of motor vehicle can be involved in a crash, and not all accidents are created equal. Getting tangled with a big rig or a crashing on a motorcycle is far different than two sedans having a fender bender, and handling these types of cases in court requires specific knowledge and experience.
Car accidents. The type of crash most of us are familiar with. Two passenger cars collide. Generally speaking, in this type of accident, you will only be dealing with the other driver and their insurance company. Cases of this nature tend to be the most straightforward, but that does not necessarily mean that they will be simple or easy to win.
Motorcycle accidents. Did a motorcycle crash into you? Were you on a motorcycle that was hit? Crashes involving bikes have their own set of rules for a couple of different reasons.
First and foremost, motorcycle injuries are almost always incredibly serious. Simply put, bikes don’t offer much protection for riders, so even a minor car accident can be a major motorcycle accident. Motorcyclists also have specific laws they must follow in North Carolina – like wearing a helmet – and unique obstacles that do not affect car drivers as much, such as potholes and bumps.
Trucking accidents. Like motorcycle accidents, crashes that involve semis and other big rigs tend to lead to devastating injuries. In this case, though, car drivers are far more at risk due to the incredible size and weight of these large trucks.
The other thing that tends to make trucking accidents complicated is that the responsible or negligent party is not always clear. Even if the truck driver was behaving in a reckless or negligent way, if he or she works for a commercial trucking company – which is almost always the case – that organization may be liable as well.
Additionally, in some cases the driver may not own the truck, so there may be questions about the liability of the owner. Other factors can impact cases like this as well.
Bicycle and pedestrian accidents. Often, when car drivers hit motorcyclists, they say that they did not even see them. The same is true in bicycle and pedestrian accidents. Likewise, car-on-bicycle or pedestrian crashes tend to lead to very serious injuries because cyclists and pedestrians have little-to-no protection.
Drivers have a responsibility to share the road with cyclists and watch out for pedestrians, but if you’re biking or walking, you have rules to follow as well, which can make these types of cases complicated.

Regardless of what type of vehicle you were hit by or using at the time of your accident, some things are the same:
No matter how injured you believe you and your loved ones to be, you need to get checked out by a doctor as soon as possible.
If you want to give yourself the best chance at receiving fair and just compensation, you have to fight back with knowledgeable auto accident attorneys.
The other side will work hard to show that you were even slightly responsible for the accident due to North Carolina’s contributory negligence law. Under contributory negligence, if it is found that you contributed to an accident in any way, you will not be able to receive any compensation.

I made the terrible mistake of driving drunk and got a DWI. And due to my high BAC I was facing some very serious penalties. After much "lawyer shopping" I decided to go with Mr. Pritchett. He made it very clear we faced an uphill battle and in all likelihood i would be convicted. Nevertheless, we came up with a plan and when favorable situations presented themselves Mr. Pritchett knew exactly how to use them to our advantage. Because of his thorough knowledge of how the system works he was able to get my DWI charge dismissed on June 8, 2018. I have learned my lesson and will NEVER drink and drive again but for those that make the mistake I highly recommend Mr. Pritchett. Thank you so much to everyone at Sclosser and Pritchett!

North Carolina drug laws can be complicated. While many controlled substances are illegal under federal law, individual states like North Carolina also have regulations. These regulations spell out how different types of substances are handled legally.
In general, North Carolina follows the federal government’s lead in classifying drugs. The government uses a scheduling system to denote how serious each type of drug is. The drugs considered a danger to a person’s health and wellbeing fall under Schedule I, while those with a medical use and a low probability for abuse are in Schedule
There are many crimes that may sound similar on their face, but once you dig a little deeper into the law, you see that they are very different. In North Carolina, sexual assault and assault on a female are two of those crimes.
While these crimes may sound alike, the truth is that there are major differences – both in the elements of the crimes and the penalties that can result in being found guilty of them.
Here is what you need to know about the difference between sexual assault and assault on
If you’ve had a DUI in North Carolina, then the words “background check” may strike fear in your heart. That’s understandable, as background checks are normally done for important things such as getting a new job.
