North Carolina Drowning Accidents
On average, North Carolina sees hundreds of boating accidents and drowning incidents yearly. Of these accidents, approximately 20% of them are fatal. In fact, more than 3,500 Americans drowned in one year alone, according to reports released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Due to hot spring and summer weather in North Carolina, drowning is all too common, leading to long-term physical problems, lost wages, emotional trauma, and even death.
Being injured in an accident of any kind is not only painful and frightening, but it can take a toll on your mental health as well as your financial well-being. This can in turn cause unneeded stress in your life and issues where there perhaps were none before. Recovering from a serious injury caused by any accident is usually a long and arduous process, depending on the nature and severity of the crash. An injury could keep you out of work for a prolonged period of time, meaning lost wages and possibly a reduced quality of life. Furthermore, families left behind to pick up the pieces after losing a loved one to a serious accident are forced to cope with financial issues and emotional trauma.
