Car Accidents in North Carolina
Hundreds of thousands of car accidents occur in the state of North Carolina every year, some of which occur on highways and in parking lots. Another popular place for car accidents is at intersections. In just one recent year’s time in the entire U.S., over 2.5 million intersection accidents occurred due to the negligence of others. These accidents sometimes happen in the blink of an eye and risk the lives of those involved.
Being injured in a North Carolina car accident at an intersection might be one of the most challenging things that you have ever endured. These accidents happen due to many different reasons. For instance, a driver could breeze through an intersection without stopping at a stop sign if they are too focused on their cell phone at the time. A driver might not see that traffic is already stopped at an intersection and might slam into the rear of another car if they are speeding or driving intoxicated. Any reckless acts can lead to an accident in the blink of an eye. Victims are urged to speak with a North Carolina personal injury attorney in their time of need.
