North Carolina Car Accidents
Car accidents in North Carolina take place multiple times every day. Sadly, a substantial number of these crashes will involve injuries, and, in the worst-case scenario, they may also be fatal. Each year, approximately 1,500 people are killed in car accidents across our state and approximately 500 of those victims will lose their lives in crashes involving alcohol. A DUI accident is especially egregious as the driver has made a conscious decision to get behind the wheel of a vehicle while they are impaired. Impaired drivers pose an extremely dangerous risk to themselves and everyone else on the roadway due to slowed reaction times and the inability to appreciate the dangers of operating a vehicle.
DUI accidents often present complicated legal issues. These crashes must be carefully investigated in order to determine how they occurred. If you or a loved one have been injured or affected by the actions of an impaired driver, it is important to seek legal help right away. An experienced North Carolina DUI accident attorney can investigate the circumstances of the crash and can present an effective and compelling argument on your behalf. Victims of these accidents may be entitled to certain special damages due to the especially reckless nature of driving while impaired.
