Injury Accidents in North Carolina
According to the North Carolina Department of Transportation, approximately 150,000 traffic crashes take place across our state every year. While not all of these crashes will cause injuries, about one-third of them will. Following an accident, victims will experience a range of emotions, including anger, sadness, and frustration. During this time, you may wonder if you will be able to regain the life that you once enjoyed prior to the accident.
