Car Accidents in North Carolina
Intersections are among the most dangerous and most likely places for a car accident to occur. According to current statistics, about 40% of all crashes nationwide take place at intersections. This is second only to rear-end accidents as the most common type of reported crash. Unfortunately, accidents that take place at intersections are often more serious in nature than rear-end accidents. Car accidents that happen at intersections normally happen because a driver has failed to yield to another vehicle. These crashes may occur at high speeds and can have catastrophic consequences.
Serious accidents also take place across North Carolina each day. A North Carolina car accident, regardless of how it occurs, can lead to painful injuries, missed time from work, and high medical costs. Many injury accidents take place due to the actions of negligent drivers. These drivers fail to pay attention to their surroundings and are responsible for thousands of car accidents in North Carolina each year.
