Car Accident Injuries in North Carolina
Highways are one of the most common places for car accidents in the state of North Carolina. Because of this, many people involved in these accidents will be hospitalized every single year. Authorities report that more than 120,000 people were injured as a result of car accidents in the Tar Heel State. Furthermore, these accidents often occur due to the negligent or reckless acts of other motorists, from distracted driving and texting while behind the wheel to DUI, speeding, and beyond. Thankfully, if you’ve been affected by a car crash that’s happened through no fault of your own or lost a loved one in one of these crashes, you may have legal recourse.
North Carolina car accidents can lead to severe, long-term injuries every year, including whiplash, TBIs, fractures, organ damage, and broken bones. These catastrophic injuries tend to land victims in the hospital, occasionally for weeks at a time, and cause them to miss out on time at work.
