Motorcycle Accidents in North Carolina
North Carolina motorcycle accidents can leave a long-lasting impact on the lives of victims. Each year, thousands of motorcyclists are hurt and some are killed when they are involved in crashes on our roadways. There were more than 3,000 reports of injuries in North Carolina motorcycle crashes in 2018. Well over half of all reported motorcycle crashes end up with the rider sustaining an injury. In many cases, these injuries are very serious and can require long-term hospitalizations and costly medical treatment.
When you have been hurt in a motorcycle accident, you should seek to protect your legal rights as soon as possible. The effects of the crash may linger for weeks, months, and even years. You need to ensure that you are fully compensated as you move forward along your path to recovery. If you settle your case too quickly, you are likely to receive a settlement that is insufficient and does not take into account the true costs of the crash. Once you sign settlement documents with the insurance company you lose your rights to make any further claims with regard to the accident.
