    Pedestrian Accidents - Greenville Catastrophic Injury Attorney

    Trying to cross the street can be an anxiety-inducing experience. Even with crosswalks and lights, you never know when someone is going to ignore the rules of the road or be just slightly too late to react because they were distracted. Often times, crossing the street can feel like you're taking your life into your own hands even if you're following all of the laws. No matter what someone's reasoning is, if you had the right of way and were still hit, they were in the wrong. This is especially true in North Carolina, where pedestrians have the right of way in all crosswalks and driveways.

    Even crossing one way streets can be dangerous if someone isn't paying attention. It is often instilled in us from a young age to look both ways, but it can seem almost silly to do it while crossing a single lane street. It's important to remember, though, that some people either don't pay attention to the signs like they should, or that roads sometimes change. Even though it may not be your fault, it doesn't hurt to exercise caution when around moving vehicles. Crossing the street shouldn't be dangerous, and yet it accounts for a good amount of the crashes we see in this country every year.

    While we could spend time to tell you how to safely cross the road, we are sure you understand how to do it yourself. The main thing to remember is that if you were in a crosswalk and you followed the direction of any signal there may have been, you were not at fault. It can be hard to feel like that's true while you're recovering or being called day and night by insurance companies that are trying to place the blame on you so they don't have to pay your medical bills, but we can assure you that it is. That's why you need a lawyer on your side.

    Having someone like Wayne Hardee helping you with your car accident related claim can only help you in the long run. He has decades of experience representing people who were injured due to the poor choices of someone else and won't rest until you get the compensation you deserve. We know how stressful it can be to try to recover from an accident, but you can do it with someone is in your corner. Let Wayne Hardee help you out today!


     
    Nighttime Accidents - Greenville Motor Vehicle Accident Attorney

    Driving in the dark is not the easiest thing to do. Even if your vision is perfect, things can throw you off at night the way they never would during the day. There are any number of things that can make a simple nighttime drive dangerous. While good conditions can help, any amount of rain or fog or other weather can reduce your visibility and when that happens, it doesn't take long for things to go wrong. When you are driving at night, there are a few things that you always want to do to make sure that you're being safe. Unfortunately, not everyone else on the road take the same care.

    When you are driving around at night, the biggest problem is always going to be visibility. While headlights are helpful, they only do so much. You can't see things outside of your headlight beams like you can in the daylight, so it is much easier for dangers to dart out from the side of the road. Things like deer and other animals are quick, so not having any warning on them can definitely test your driving ability. This is why speed is also important to monitor while you're driving around in the dark.

    The other problem with headlights is that other people to use theirs too. If someone is driving a dark colored car, it can be hard to see it at night. If you have a black cat or dog and have tried to walk around at night, you can understand the problem. If someone has their lights off, it can be extremely dangerous because you probably won't see them until it is too late. We know that you don't have control over anyone else, but making sure that you have your lights on at all times is a great way to ensure that you are doing your part to prevent a crash.

    If you were in a car accident that occurred at night due to someone else's negligence, give Wayne Hardee a call. He has decades of experience with car crashes and will do everything he can to make sure that you get the compensation you deserve. It is important to have a good legal firm on your side, and you are lucky enough to have one right in your area. Give us a call and see how much of a difference Wayne Hardee can make for your case!

    Motorcycle Accidents - Greenville Motorcycle Accident Attorney

    With the warmer weather finally starting to show itself, motorcycles are going to be out on the road more consistently again. Regardless of the weather, you should always keep an eye out on the road for people on motorcycles. Remember that in the event of a crash, they don’t have as much protection against injury as anyone in a car does. While there are pros and cons to riding a motorcycle, you should always make an informed decision about what vehicle you want to get when you are allowed to get your license. Getting a bike is just as much of a responsibility as getting a car is, so let’s talk about riding.

    To ride a motorcycle in the state of North Carolina, you need a special license to operate it. To get the learners permit, you must have a full provisional, regular, or commercial driver license. You then need to pass a motorcycle knowledge test, a road sign identification test, and a vision test. If you are 16-18, you must also have parental permission and pass a motorcycle safety course. To get an endorsement to ride, you must pass a motorcycle knowledge test and an off-street motorcycle skills test. These extra requirements are in place to show just how different it is between driving in a car and riding a motorcycle.

    While it takes extra steps to legally ride a motorcycle, driving a car with them on the road only takes a regular license. Of course it is important for the person operating the motorcycle to know how to do so safely, but it is also important that the other drivers on the road pay attention to who is nearby when they are in control of their vehicle. This is especially true if the driving conditions are poor, such as nighttime or in inclement weather.

    If you were hurt in a motorcycle accident, one of the first things that you need to do is call Wayne Hardee.

    Minor Accidents - Greenville Motor Vehicle Accident Attorney

    There are so many different kinds of car crashes that there are different terms for how severe the damage is. For example, if a vehicle is completely ruined and it's easier to scrap than save, we use the term “totaled.” Not every crash will leave a car totaled, but many will still cause damage. Sometimes this is a dented door or a broken windshield. These types of problems often mean that people are hurt, but not severely. Other times, you will only have a small dent in the bumper or a scratch along the side. These are generally referred to as “fender bender” accidents. While it is very possible that someone can walk away without being injured, this unfortunately isn't always the case.

    Fender benders can be sneaky, because they seem so minor. This means that it can look like a small issue and you don't really think too much about it. Unfortunately, things aren't always what they seem. Even a light bump can cause pain and other medical issues depending on other factors. This is why you always hear the advice that no matter what happens or how you feel after an accident, you should go to the doctor and get checked out. It isn't uncommon for an impact that doesn't cause damage to the vehicles involved to still result in an injury. Even something as seemingly small as a pinched nerve can change someone's entire life depending on their career and their role in their family and community. These issues can continue to impact someone's future for years as well. It all depends on how the person moved during the actual collision. It is important to remember that just because a car doesn't look damaged doesn't mean everyone inside fared the same.

    If you were in an accident, even if it was a minor one, and were hurt, you should immediately call Wayne Hardee. He is an attorney with decades of experience and this means he knows how to get the proper compensation for anyone who was injured. It can be difficult to work through any number of things after an injury, but with Wayne's help you can focus on your recovery and let him deal with the legal side of the case. We promise that we will do everything we can to get you the compensation you deserve. Give us a call and see how much we can help!

    Kids in Crashes - Greenville Motor Vehicle Accident Attorney

    Car accidents are scary. This is a fact that everyone can pretty much agree on, especially if they have been in one themselves. It is not uncommon to hear that someone has developed Acute Stress Disorder (ASD) or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) from a crash, especially depending on the severity of the injuries, or if there was a death that happened during the accident. When you are in an accident, there is more than just the physical factor that needs to be considered, but this is especially true when the crash involves children.

    We obviously never want to hear about anyone being hurt in a car crash, and much less so kids, but it does unfortunately happen. This means that we really do need to talk about it, and more importantly, what you can do if it happens to you. When there are kids involved with anything, emotions will automatically run higher, so it's a good idea to have someone that can look at things from a more removed position and hopefully a more practical side of the situation. Although it is difficult for anyone to do so, making sure that you can separate your emotions from what you're trying to do can help when you are dealing with something like a car crash.

    If you have children or care for kids on a regular basis, you know just how difficult it can be to care for them under the best of circumstances. Adding something into the mix like an accident can throw everything off of the very delicate balance you constantly try to strike. If they are hurt or scared, kids can become harder to deal with. If you were injured, it can seem almost impossible to care for both of you. This is why having a good support system is invaluable after something like as a car accident occurs.

    If you were in a crash that involved children, give Wayne Hardee a call right away. He has decades of experience working with victims of car crashes and will work to get you the compensation you deserve. If you have children that were involved in the crash, you have enough to worry about. Let Wayne Hardee handle the legal side of things so you can focus on what really matters. We know how hard it can be, but we will help you every step of the way. Call us today and see how we can help your case!

    Insurance Issues - Greenville Personal Injury Attorney

    No one ever wants to deal with insurance. It is a complicated and often convoluted process even to get to a live representative from their automated menus. It involves long wait periods where you're stuck on hold just hoping that someone will answer that doesn't have a robotic voice. Once you get through to a real person, it can seem like the menus were easier to deal with. Trying to get information is frequently like pulling teeth, and you tend to get conflicting information between what the representatives tell you and what actually happens later. When you're trying to deal with this on top of an injury, it can be enough to make you want to deal with it yourself and simply avoid them altogether.

    Naturally if you were injured due to someone else's negligence, you need to speak to your insurance company one way or another. Sometimes it's so that you can figure out what kind of coverage you have, other times it's to dispute claims, and sometimes it's to try and work out a payment plan due to the high costs that come with sudden injuries. Whatever your reason for speaking to your company is, the fact remains that it is exhausting and can be difficult to get through to someone who can actually help when what you should be doing is recovering.

    When you are injured, there is a lot that feels like it's out of your control. It can be scary and frustrating to recover from an injury in the first place, but if you add a battle with your insurance company into the mix, it is often seemingly impossible to deal with the constant stress. This is why it is always a good idea to hire someone to help you with these problems. You need someone who knows how to help you get the compensation you deserve despite insurance companies' arguments to the contrary. Someone like Wayne Hardee.

    Wayne Hardee has decades of experience working on personal injury cases and has dealt with a solid number of insurance companies over the years. Although it is never easy, Wayne has the passion and drive to get the results that you deserve so that you can focus on your recovery. It's important that you stay as stress free as possible, so let someone else handle the legal side of things for you. Call Wayne and see how much he helps you today!

    Ice and Premise Liability - Greenville Premise Liability Attorney

    When you are somewhere that clearly looks dangerous, you're naturally going to be more careful. It's simply in our nature to walk a little more timidly across the street than it would be across your own yard. However, there are some places that you won't pay much attention to while you're walking because you expect to be safe. If you are walking on the sidewalk outside a store, for example, you can reasonably expect to not end up falling over due to untreated ice. It isn't unreasonable for you to expect it to have been salted, but sometimes a patch of ice just hits you when you least expect it to.

    When you slip on ice, you often experience a range of emotions. Normally, these include embarrassment and frustration. Both are understandable responses to losing your footing, especially in such a fashion. It is even more understandable if you had expected the property to be taken care of correctly. Things like wet floor signs are often put out if there is a spill, but when there's ice outside there isn't much warning that can be done. This often means that a fall is not only possible, but likely.

    While slipping and falling on flat ground may hurt your pride, falling down the steps can hurt more than just that. Ice that forms at the top of a step is a huge liability, even if it's only a single step like on a sidewalk. The property owner and manager has a duty to make sure that their location is as safe as they can feasibly make it for you and anyone else there. While they can't protect you from everything, issues like ice and other slippery substances need to be either dealt with or marked to keep you safe and healthy.

    If you were injured on someone else's property because you fell on some untreated ice in the winter, give Wayne Hardee a call. He has decades of experience on cases such as these and can certainly help you get the compensation you deserve. Cases such as premises liability are difficult to argue, so it's always a big help to have someone on your side who knows what they're doing. If you suffered from a fall and needed medical care, you deserve compensation. Make sure that Wayne Hardee is the lawyer you call for legal assistance today!
