Fatal Accidents in North Carolina
A fatal accident in North Carolina always leaves family members in a very difficult position. There is nothing more heartbreaking or devastating than the loss of a loved one in a crash. This is especially true if the accident victim was killed due to the negligence of another driver. When a hit-and-run accident takes place, it is frequently caused by another driver’s carelessness. These drivers often flee the scene of a crash knowing that their actions have caused a major crash with catastrophic consequences.
If you have lost a family member or have been seriously injured yourself, you should speak with an attorney to help determine your legal rights. North Carolina law allows victims to recover damages from the negligent driver when they are not at fault for the crash. In addition, crash victims may also have additional rights of recovery depending on the availability of personal insurance policies or the assets of the negligent driver. These cases, however, are very complicated and should only be handled by an experienced lawyer who can help you achieve the maximum compensation.
