Truck Accidents in North Carolina
Though truck accidents are not as popular as other types of accidents on our roads, they still continue to happen every year in North Carolina. In 2016, it was reported that approximately 14,000 truck accidents took place within the state, with many of these leading to catastrophic injuries and hospitalizations. Because tractor-trailers are some of the largest vehicles on our roads, they are vastly capable of causing severe harm to those involved in these accidents. Many people will lose their lives due to truck accidents every single year as well. If you and your family are suffering the devastating loss of a loved one as a result of a truck accident, you have options moving forward. It is essential that you seek the dedicated and compassionate help of an attorney.
Truck drivers are some of the safest drivers on our roads but this does not mean that all truck accidents will be prevented. On top of that, truck drivers are not always the parties at fault for a truck accident. Some other individuals and entities who could be liable for these accidents include trucking companies, cargo loaders, manufacturers, and more. As you can see, the aftermath of a truck accident can be entirely complex.
