Car accidents take place across our state each and every day. Many North Carolina car accidents occur on busy roads and major interstates, such as Interstate 85. With a higher traffic volume, higher speed limits, and a greater concentration of motorists, highways can be a dangerous and deadly place for drivers. Many highway drivers choose to operate their vehicles in an unsafe manner and will drive well over the posted speed limit or will fail to yield to those around them. These actions can place all other motorists at risk of being injured in a serious crash.
