Truck Accidents in North Carolina
Thousands of truck accidents take place every year in the state of North Carolina. In 2016, it was reported that approximately 14,000 truck accidents took place throughout the state. Though truck drivers are expected to abide by the rules of the road at all times, truck accidents still occur in the blink of an eye throughout the state. Because trucks are some of the largest vehicles on our roads, they are capable of causing immense harm, even fatalities, in the event of an accident. If you have lost a loved one in an accident, it is crucial that you and your family speak with an accident attorney.
Though truck accidents in North Carolina do not happen as commonly as other accidents on our roads, they are some of the most severe. Truck drivers spend an extended period of time on our roads, which means that they are more likely to drive distractedly or fall asleep at the wheel. Many parties could be found at fault for truck accidents including truck drivers, trucking companies, manufacturers, and more.
