Moped Accidents in North Carolina
Moped accidents are not as common as other collisions that take place on North Carolina roadways. Out of the over 119,000 people who are injured in one year’s time within the state, only a small percentage involves mopeds. These accidents are known for being incredibly severe, however. This is due to the fact that moped drivers have many risks on our roads and few protections from harm. Being injured in one of these accidents can have a huge impact on every aspect of your life. This is why it is imperative that you speak with an accident attorney in your time of need.
