Car Accidents in North Carolina
Intersections are some of the most dangerous places in North Carolina and a common place for serious car accidents. In just one year’s time in the U.S., over 2.5 million intersection accidents occur due to the outright reckless acts of others. These accidents happen in the blink of an eye when a driver is not paying close attention to the roads around them. When a driver is texting and driving, they might not see that a light has turned red and could continue on through an intersection. On top of that, a driver who is speeding could continue on through an intersection without stopping. If you have been hurt in an accident that is not your fault, it is important that you seek the help of an accident attorney.
