Fatal Accidents in North Carolina
Being involved in a North Carolina car accident can be a life-altering experience. Car accidents in North Carolina often take place very suddenly and unexpectedly. The aftermath of a crash can leave you suffering from serious injuries that can take weeks and months to heal. During this time, your quality of life may be greatly affected as you are unable to do many of the things that you once enjoyed before the accident. You may also be unable to work and provide for yourself or your family.
If you have experienced an injury accident on our state’s roadways, you could have important legal rights. Under state law, an injured victim in a crash has the right to file a claim for reimbursement of certain damages sustained in the accident. This includes payment of reasonable medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and, in some cases, punitive damages. When you are hurt by the negligent actions of another motorist, you should not have to worry about being held financially responsible. Your focus should be solely on your healing and recovery.
