North Carolina Car Accidents
A car accident in North Carolina can be a life-changing event for victims and their families. Last year in our state, there were over 125,000 people injured in reported traffic accidents. This represents a little less than 50% of all total reported crashes. Therefore, if you are involved in an accident in North Carolina, there is about a 1 in 2 chance that you will suffer some type of injury. While some people are fortunate and suffer only relatively minor injuries, other crash victims will be seriously hurt and can be affected for weeks and months by the injuries that they sustain in the crash.
Following a car accident in Aberdeen, it is important to seek treatment as soon as possible. This allows you to ensure that your injuries will heal as quickly as they can. Delaying treatment can result in injuries worsening which will then require even more medical care and also a longer recovery period. You should not delay in seeing a doctor immediately after the accident.
