Car Accidents in North Carolina
There are multiple car accidents in North Carolina each day. According to statistics from the North Carolina Department of Transportation, nearly 300,000 car accidents take place each year in our state. This amounts to over 800 crashes per day. Many of these accidents will result in injuries for the victims, and sometimes the injuries are serious in nature. Unfortunately, many crash victims are hurt when they come into contact with a negligent driver. Some common causes of North Carolina car accidents include speeding, reckless driving, driving while impaired, and distracted driving, including texting while driving.
