Help in North Carolina for victims of motor vehicle accidents

| Dec 27, 2018 | Motor Vehicle Accidents |

The law firm of Downer, Walters & Mitchener is located in Charlotte, North Carolina, and represents victims of motor vehicle accidents. Motor vehicle accidents can happen in many different ways and victims deserve to get the support of legal representatives who understand how different crashes can require different legal strategies.

For example, distracted driving accidents can occur between the private drivers of cars and trucks or between private drivers and commercial drivers. Distracted driving crashes are often governed by facts that can help victims demonstrate the negligence of the responsible drivers. Distracted driving can happen when drivers use their cellphones, look at maps or eat while behind the wheels of their cars.

Drunk driving accidents are also a very serious form of motor vehicle collisions. Drunk drivers are reckless in their actions and put the lives of others at risk when they operate their vehicles. A drunk driving lawsuit can involve the use of scientific information that demonstrates the intoxication of a person who is accused of causing a drunk driving accident.

Finally, accidents that occur between private drivers and commercial vehicles can introduce complexities into lawsuits that may not otherwise be present in standard crashes between private individuals. Litigation involving a commercial vehicle or truck can require a victim and their legal representative to investigate relevant federal regulations and laws that may influence the outcome of their case. The attorneys of Downer, Walters & Mitchener are prepared to support the needs of their motor vehicle accident clients regardless of how those accidents occurred. Information on the firm may be found on its extensive motor vehicle accident website.
