North Carolina Car Accidents
Serious car accidents cause problems across North Carolina’s roadways each day. In an average year, there are nearly 300,000 reported car accidents in North Carolina. About one-third to one-half of all car accidents in our state will result in injuries to one or more individuals involved in the crash. The injuries can range from minor to severe and may even be deadly in the worst-case scenario.
The common factor behind most North Carolina car accidents is the presence of a negligent driver. Speeding, reckless driving, distraction, impairment, and more all play a role in many crashes that occur in our state. These negligent drivers place both themselves and all others on the roadway at risk of injury due to their actions. A crash involving a negligent driver can have life-changing consequences for the victim, including complicated and expensive medical treatment, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
