Car Accidents in North Carolina
In just one year’s time, it is estimated that over 119,000 people are hospitalized as a result of North Carolina car accidents. These accidents happen in many different areas but intersections are among some of the most common. Intersections are inherently dangerous due to the fact that these accidents occur when drivers are not paying close attention to the roads around them. When a driver slams into another vehicle at an intersection, it could be traveling at high speeds or the driver could be intoxicated. Because the aftermath of a car accident can have a lasting impact on your life, it is important that you speak with an accident attorney after a collision that is not your fault.
