Truck Accidents in North Carolina
Truck accidents are some of the most severe accidents on our roads due to the fact that they involve some of the largest vehicles. Every year, thousands of truck accidents occur in the state of North Carolina. In 2016 alone, approximately 14,000 truck accidents took place due to the negligence of others within the state.

North Carolina truck accidents are known for being some of the most catastrophic accidents on our roads. Truck drivers are heralded for being some of the safest drivers on our roads. However, these accidents still occur due to drowsy driving, driver distractions, and more. Because truck drivers spend long periods of time on our roads, they are more likely to fall asleep at the wheel or talk on their cell phones. It is important that you speak with an attorney who has your best interests in mind after one of these collisions.
