Motorcycle Accidents in North Carolina
A motorcycle accident in North Carolina can lead to devastating and destructive injuries in a matter of seconds. Motorcyclists are among the most vulnerable motorists on our roadways. According to the North Carolina Department of Transportation, more than 80% of all North Carolina motorcycle accidents result in injuries to the victim. Many of these injuries will be serious and life-changing in nature. Common injuries sustained in a motorcycle crash include head trauma, broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and soft tissue injuries.
A North Carolina motorcycle accident must be carefully investigated in order to determine the cause. Due to the nature of these crashes, determining exactly how the accident took place can be challenging. In some instances, it may be necessary to have a professional crash reconstruction done in order to piece together the events as they occurred. The determination of fault is extremely important in order to prove that the other driver was negligent and should be held responsible for the accident.
