Truck Accidents in North Carolina
Truck accidents are known for being some of the most horrific accidents on our roads that take place due to the negligence of others. In just 2016 alone, it was reported that approximately 14,000 truck-related crashes took place in the state of North Carolina due to the negligence of others. These accidents take on many forms but among the most catastrophic for drivers and passengers are rollovers. Approximately 2% of accidents on our roads are deemed rollovers. If you have suffered losses as a result of a truck accident, it is essential that you speak with an attorney in your time of need.
