North Carolina Car Accidents  Cabarrus County, NC - Driver Killed in Wrong-Way Crash on I-85

North Carolina’s roadways can be a very dangerous place for motorists. While no one ever wants to think about the possibility of being involved in a serious crash, these accidents take place each day on our roadways. According to the most recent statistics, nearly 1,500 people were killed in North Carolina car accidents in 2018, and almost 80,000 injuries were reported. These numbers help to show the danger to motorists on the roadways. Many of those who were hurt or killed were victims of crashes that were not their fault. In a split second, a car accident in North Carolina can change many lives forever.

If you have experienced the loss of a loved one due to a traffic accident, our condolences go out to you. There is nothing more difficult than having to face such a sudden and unexpected tragedy. Car accident fatalities represent the loss of a loving relative and can cause financial hardship when an income is suddenly taken away from a family. If your loved one was killed in a collision with a negligent driver, you could be entitled to financial recovery. Under North Carolina’s wrongful death statute, the deceased victim’s next-of-kin has two years to file a claim against the other motorist whose negligence resulted in the crash. These claims are complicated, however, and should only be handled by an experienced attorney.
