North Carolina Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle accidents take place numerous times per day in North Carolina. While motorcycle riding is a fun and enjoyable activity for thousands of people in our state, there is a great amount of risk involved. More than 80% of all reported North Carolina motorcycle accidents result in some type of injuries. In many cases, a rider will suffer serious, life-threatening injuries and even death. Motorcycle accident injuries tend to have long recovery time and involve costly medical treatment, tremendous pain, and suffering, and lost wages due to the crash. These accidents can truly change every facet of your life as you move forward along the path to recovery.
Unfortunately, many motorcycle accidents in North Carolina take place due to the actions of a negligent driver.
