Asheville Car Accident Lawyers Provide Aggressive Representation

Determined pursuit of full compensation for our injured clients

With about 89,000 residents, Asheville is already the largest city in western North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountain region and the state’s twelfth-most populous city. Residents can enjoy numerous amenities, like a hike or drive through the Blue Ridge Parkway, a stroll through the Botanical Gardens or the Arboretum, or taking in a minor league baseball game at McCormick Field. But like many areas of the Tar Heel State, Asheville continues to grow, and this growth has presented challenges including traffic congestion and increased traffic accidents. If you or a loved one is seriously injured in an auto accident in Asheville or vicinity, the experienced Asheville car accident attorneys at Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban are prepared to help you recover the full, fair compensation you deserve.

Asheville car accident statistics reveal increased risk of injuries

Over the last several years, the number of motor vehicle accidents has risen steadily in North Carolina and throughout the country. In 2016, North Carolina saw a 6.3 percent increase in total crashes, along with a 5.3 percent increase in total injuries and a 4.4 percent increase in total fatalities. The same year, Asheville had 5,380 total crashes, which caused 11 fatalities and 1,588 injuries. Of these crashes, 149 were alcohol-related, resulting in three fatalities and 86 injuries. Traffic accidents also caused 20 injuries to pedestrians as well as two deaths. Sixteen crashes involved bicyclists, injuring 15 and killing two.

Managing growth and keeping Asheville roadways safe

Throughout North Carolina, infrastructure projects have been launched to broaden highways, improve the flow on interchanges, and enhance safety. One such project is the I-26 connector to join the interstate on southwest Asheville with Routes 19, 23, and 70 on the northwest. With nearly 40,000 daily commuters descending on the heart of Asheville, the current interchange has proven woefully inadequate. Congestion has reached such a crisis that, according to a study by TRIP, a transportation research group based in Washington, D.C., the average Asheville motorist spends 26 hours a year sitting in traffic.

In 2016, the City of Asheville released Asheville in Motion, an initiative that outlines several strategies to manage growth and enhance safety through infrastructure redesigns that promise to make roadways safer for all users: motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians. Many of the strategies cited are consistent with Vision Zero, a European model of urban planning and traffic management adopted in major U.S. cities that seeks to eliminate traffic fatalities altogether.
