North Carolina Car Accident
A car accident in North Carolina can be a life-changing event for victims and their families. Last year in our state, there were over 125,000 people injured in reported traffic accidents. This represents a little less than 50% of all total reported crashes. Therefore, if you are involved in an accident in North Carolina, there is about a 1 in 2 chance that you will suffer some type of injury. While some people are fortunate and suffer only relatively minor injuries, other crash victims will be seriously hurt and can be affected for weeks and months by the injuries that they sustain in the crash.
Following a car accident in North Carolina, it is important to seek treatment as soon as possible. This allows you to ensure that your injuries will heal as quickly as they can. Delaying treatment can result in injuries worsening which will then require even more medical care and also a longer recovery period. You should not delay in seeing a doctor immediately after the accident.
Once you have established a medical plan, your next phone call should be to a skilled and trusted North Carolina car accident attorney that can help you protect your legal rights. Almost all car accidents in North Carolina are caused by negligent drivers. These drivers will speed, drive recklessly, and not pay attention to the roadway. Their careless actions can lead to a tremendous amount of pain and suffering for innocent victims. Your attorney can help make sure that your rights are protected and that the appropriate person is held responsible for your damages.
